Research questions value of IT certifications

Non-certified skills are putting more dollars in the pockets of IT personnel than certified skills, according to the latest research from New Canaan, Conn.-based Foote Partners LLC. The latest quarterly research which tracks the value of skills and certifications has found that non-certified skills are growing in value at a faster rate than certified skills, said David Foote, president and founder of Foote Partners in an interview with SearchSAP.com. While the research questions the value of IT certifications, Foote doesn't completely dismiss them. In souring economic conditions, employers use certifications to justify new hires. Certifications can also guard against being laid off during a bad economy, Foote said. Foote discussed his latest research with SearchSAP.com, including which IT skills and certifications are growing in value and which skills are in decline. The complete interview is available for download.
