People,

I thought this would be of interest in a Cisco certification forum -

RE: Cisco announces its highest level certification ever

I'm gonna defend the CCA cert -- if any certification can be defended.  
   We have to credit the capability to fuse business requirements and needs with pure tech skills.  An "architect" designing a wall has to consider not only the obvious requirements (strength, resistance to shock, aesthetics), but a lot of the not-so-obvious (greening, capital investment strategies, wholistic environmental effects, carbon footprints, security requirements, threat assessments, labor and project management constraints, subsurface loading effects, and ......)  
   Cisco gives lots of kudos and certs to people who know and support their technology when designing/building a network -- without necessarily understanding fully the business requirements of the entities involved in making a communications channel necessary, and then getting it implemented.  
   In other words - in a network infrastructure process, technology is a prerequisite enabler, but it's "only" 25% of the project.  The other 75% is peopleware.
 

RE: Cisco announces its highest level certification ever

I'm actually ok with the new cert....but the price tag of $15k?  Just seems insanely high to me.
