We start this new week of articles in our series, “VMware or Microsoft?” with a nod to the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s album and song, “Are you experienced”.
Because whenever I hear the question, “are you certified?”, I think of professional certifications. And when I think of professional certifications, I think of the experience that one must have (in most cases) in order to pass a certification test. And when I think of the word “experience”, I think of this Hendrix album.
But step back a couple of thoughts in that crazy train that is my train of thought for a second…
Um.. huh? Okay. Anyway… I mentioned the topic of certifications. And that’s exactly what Matt Hester is talking about in today’s series article. Like me, he is also VCP 5 certified by VMware. So he’s decided to walk you through a comparison of VMware’s and Microsoft’s approach to IT professional certifications. (HINT: There is no clear winner here. And I think that’s a good thing.)
