Thanks to Howard Sobel for the tip: Microsoft Corporation announced this week the immediate availability of new training resources enabling the worldwide channel of 250,000 value-added service providers to deploy and support Windows NT Server 4.0 more easily and cost-effectively. Sales of Windows NT Server increased from 732,000 in 1996 to 1.26 million in 1997 and IDC predicts that Microsoft will sell over 3.2 million copies of NT Server a year by 2002.
"We're pleased to see that the demand for deployment and support services on Windows NT Server 4.0 continues to remain strong," said Sam Jadallah, a Microsoft vice president. "To help meet this demand, we're providing the channel with a variety of new, more affordable and accessible training options, based on the feedback we receive that training and skills are a key challenge."
New training options include one-day instructor led Microsoft curriculum, self-paced training, online training with mentors, Direct Access Quarterly Briefings, virtual events (the first will be held in mid-October), and more.
