Companies want IT pros with business acumen who communicate effectively, but that's hard to measure with a data center certification.

    Most certifications suck - besides often containing borderline cases which are almost completely unusable in practice (the questions are not put together by practicing experts in the field), they are easily beaten by people learning the answers from various sources (e.g. Testking) by heart. Certification is a made-up industry with almost no merit whatsoever.

    Microsoft Certified Solutions Master (MCSM) has been scrapped by the way.

    Really?

    The bazillion hours of experience I have in customer-facing pre- and post-sales engagements with BUSINESSES of all types and sizes across North America, not to mention "client relations" schmoozing experience from CA and countless trade shows - means absolutely nothing when all they want to hire are 20-somethings who work for peanuts.
    That is, when they're not fingering their phones on facebook at their desks or sneaking out of work early.
