    Fact that it doesn't have any virtualization certs makes me think it's an old article recycled.

    If you look at the comments they didnt had PGMP and the writer added it on a fly
    that much thoughts went to that "article"

    I agree, this is a recycled list from probably about.com or tumbler or some blog of a guy
    The article is a no brainer, it takes high level (most of them) certifications and tell you, this means more $$$
    guess what? If you make a Phd you will have greater achievements academically than a highschool students!
    bleh article
    meh

    I think the list is probably fairly accurate. Just because the list does not reflect the popular certifications on this board does not mean they are not valid. I have never known virtualization certs to be particularly profitable. I understand that VCP is challenging; but almost all of the VMWARE professionals I know don't have a virtualization specific certification.

    Wow, yeah, one of the worst formatted articles I've ever seen!
    I struggled to work out what the list was, why it was broken up, and why they are listing the requirements!

    PgMP is a relatively new certification. PMI has all of these different certs, and IMO, the CAPM or PMP is still the one to get from them. The risk management one that's mentioned is really a more detailed cert of the risk management portion of the CAPM/PMP exam that focuses on risk management.

    The reader of "the top X certifications for Year Y" articles really needs to take those things with a grain of salt. One has to focus on what their interests are in IT and focus on getting an education/cert on that. If you're passion is databases, why study for the CCIE (for example) just because some blogger writes that the CCIE holders get paid $100+ a year?

    I hope if you have a CCIE you get paid more than 100 dollars a year! :P

    Gotta agree with you, Erpadmin. If you love something enough, you'll find a way to make the big bucks - if that's sticking your nose into a lot of books to do it. So be it!
