Microsoft Certifications

I was never a great fan of certifications, well I realised it by 3rd year into my career that certifications though nothing great, do infact add to your profile and people look at you differently if you are certified, I mean they do tend to think you are definitely good if certified – huh !!!

Since it started Certification Program around 1992-93, Microsoft certifications have become the most widely accepted/certified/attempted certifications :-), well this does shows that Microsoft technologies with all their issues and crappy remarks by competition, have been far most accepted and flaunted worldwide.

I was looking at Certification figures at Microsoft site and realised that even for Exchange Server 2007: Configuration we have more than 9865 certified professionals and around 2965 – MCITP – Enterprise Messaging Administrators. Phhewww the list seems to be growing.

What do we make out of this ? Good Bad or Ugly !!!!!!!
