As part of the 2016 Global Knowledge IT Skills & Salary Survey, thousands of IT professionals were asked about an always-pressing issue: Certifications, and how important they are to career success.
The results were surprising: Almost nine out of ten IT professionals responded that had earned at least one professional certification during their careers, a jump from just under eight out of ten the year before.
In fact, 29 percent of IT professionals had earned a certification within the last six months alone, and 40 percent reported were currently working on a new certification.
The survey also found that those with security certifications were in high demand among IT decision makers, with those holding security-related certifications averaging among the highest pay.
The survey also found that Microsoft's revamped program has led to fewer respondents taking part, but those that do are seeing a bigger payoff.
