It's interesting how very subjective these are. As a result, I've really devalued the "best 10 certifications" lists I've seen in recent years For instance, based on this list, Security+ would be #1 and CISSP would be #2 for security certs. But SC Magazine (which focuses strictly on security) put CISA as #1, which doesn't even make this list. I know that it has certain experience requirements, but then so do the PMP and CISSP...


Note that while CISSP makes the list of finalists with (ISC)2, CompTIA's Security+ does not.

Wow! No mention of PMI.org's Project Management Professional Certification ( ! ?) - quite funny considering that Project Managers are forgotten/ignored by the coders (yes this list shows some bias) whilst scope (keeping feature creep at bay), risk management, deadlines/time management, the triple constraint (time, budget, resources) and the all important work breakdown structure are equally important to the IT industry.

But hey, I've personally invested the time in both MCITP and PMP certification...so there's my bias. Whatever the case, having multiple certifications definitely is a good sign for those seeking to be well-rounded IT professionals.

Anyone hold, or know someone who holds, both LINUX+ and MCITP at the same time, for example?  Now there's an intersting contrast.

Brian, I know that you are security man (SQL Security and more...) and sure that you have a lot information about security certifications and other security features. I post the list of certifications where the people invest for them and mostly are from MCITP Certifications!

Good to hear, that you invest in PMP!

Exactly Dugi, it's all about investment.
