DBA Certification: Oracle 9i or SQL Server 2000?
I have worked in Software Development for the past eight years with Visual
Basic, Visual C++ and the big three (Oracle, SQL Server & Informix). Iím
looking to add that ďicing on the cakeĒ to my skill set. At this point, Iíve
come down to the MCDBA with SQL Server 2000 or the Oracle DBA with Oracle
I was wondering if anyone has some thoughtful insight as to which skill set
will be most advantageous. From what I have seen, the SQL Server certification
will probably offer a greater number of jobs with lower pay. Conversely,
the Oracle DBA certification will probably offer slightly fewer jobs with
higher pay. Does anyone have any insight?
I appreciate any thoughtful comments. However, I do not wish to start a discussion
on the value or merits of certification.
