    According to CIO in January of this year here, these would be the most popular IT certifications for 2021, what do you think? Did you get or are you getting any of these? I can see one problem with their prediction.... I'm sure the MCSA ceased to be at the end of January 2021 :S

    Having a quick look at the Microsoft certification portal, a dinosaur like me doesn't recognise a lot of the newer certs. Has anyone sat the Azure certs?

    Looking at the article I am not even sure I understand what the list is meant to represent they say according to a report IT professionals holding the following popular certifications can earn 5% to 10% more than their peers. They then list them as the most in demand certifications but just because you earn more then your peers and have the certification does not mean the certs are in demand.

    Some of the certs listed look like the usual ones, others such as CEH, MCSA and CDPSE I am not so sure about.
    Certifications: A few.
