Q

Career advantage to MCSE, MSDBA and SAP certification

Hi Ed, I am a SAP system administrator for the pass year and half, my landscape consist of NT OS, and MS SQL database....

My question is would it be to my career advantage to receive MCSE, MSDBA and SAP certification? James Dear James: If you've got the time, energy, and money to cover MCSE, MCDBA, and SAP credentials, go for it. A word of warning, though: you can no longer certify on Windows NT. You can only certify on Windows 2000 and newer OSes (such as XP, and Server .NET when it becomes available). I'm not sure that the MCSE is absolutely necessary in your case, but the MCDBA and the SAP stuff is probably an excellent idea. Be prepared to spend 3-6 months on MCDBA, and anywhere from 9-18 months on the SAP credentials.

HTH,
Ed
