Certification Suggestion
« on: 03 Nov 2014 11:26:54 pm »
Hi Cognos Experts,

Can you please let me know which certification is better:

I have two options:

1. Test C2020-625: IBM Cognos 10 BI Data Warehouse Developer
2. Test C2020-180: IBM Cognos BI Professional

All opinions are accepted  :)

Regards
SRC

Hi,

You can't really expect anyone to provide any sort of meaningful answer to such a vague question, surely? What does "better" mean? What skills do you need to acquire and prove your knowledge of? What is your current experience in these two areas? What do you want to do with either of these certifications if you acquire them?

If I asked you "Which is better - bread or cheese?" how could you answer that question in a way that is relevant to me, my tastes, my allergies, my likes and dislikes, my budget etc?

You can read up on what each of the certifications covers, and from that you are really the only person who can decide which (for you) is better.

MF.
Meep!

As written in the topic discussion "All opinions are accepted" I gladly accept your response.

The main point in comparing these two certification is bcoz of the "IBM Certified Solution Expert - Cognos BI" which has both "Test C2020-180 - IBM Cognos BI Professional" and "Test C2020-625 - IBM Cognos 10 BI Data Warehouse Developer ". Hence I wanted to ask the question in this forum just to know if somebody has ended up doing both of the certification to achieve the solution expert degree.

Looking for a better way of representing things!!!

Thanks.

I have all three of the certifications mentioned here. They cover different topic areas - so I'm struggling to see how you envisage one can be viewed as better than another? What does "better" mean? You haven't indicated what your skills are or what you want to achieve, so there can be no measure of "better" other than your own opinion based on the content covered by each cert, can there?
