re: U.S. Tech Leadership On Solid Ground, IT Pros Say
Which makes another opinion poll result published by Dell/Intel (Mr. Matt Stansberry) all the more disconcerting, "Technical certifications continue to lose merit with respondents: 55% don't have any certification, versus 46% last year. The number of respondents who say certification doesn't matter in their raise or bonus structure increased from 77% last year to practically 90%." The again, what's the old adage about opinions? Not surprisingly, the basis of the survey (market sector, no. of respondents, etc.) was not specified in the paper. Point is in numbers, it is always important to separate statistical data from opinion data and consider the composition or base of either.
