Oracle OCP Certification losing employer popularity

In this excellent SearchOracle article by Luke Meredith we see that Oracle OCP certification has been loosing ground when compared to real-world Oracle experience:,289142,sid41_gci1100048,00.html?track=NL-93&ad=520852USCA

"We're looking at the early days of a trend that we're going see over the next year," founder and managing partner, David Foote said. "We've seen companies telling us that it's true that [they] were very interested in certification, but as the economy has changed they are much more interested in hearing what they've done with those skills.

Nate Viall, the president of Nate Viall and Associates in Des Moines, Iowa, has been in IT for over 30 years and is currently working as a headhunter. He said, save for the late '90s when Microsoft and Novell systems administration certifications were in high demand, experience has always been the key component of any potential employee's resume.

"Education is not a substitute for experience. If you can do the job as opposed to a paper that says you have potential to the job, the weight falls on those that can do the job already," Viall said.

Part of what's behind these findings is the nature of the technology landscape. Factors like the blending of IT and operations tasks, increased government regulation, and merger and acquisition activity have IT workers wearing a lot of different hats.
