Your best bet to get a sense of the landscape for IT certifications is to visit a Web site like www.certcities.com or www.ITcertinfo.com and look around to see what's available. At last count, I totted up over 700 certifications in this general subject area, from a bewildering mix of vendors, organizations, and consulting and training companies. Rather than try to fit the ocean into the oyster that is this e-mail reply, let me instead recommend you use the aforementioned sites to dive into that ocean and see what looks interesting to yourself.
