Best Enterprise Architect Certifications for 2015

Our list of the best enterprise architect certifications for 2015 includes both vendor-neutral and vendor-specific options that will help you get to the pinnacle of the IT certification pyramid, validating your skills and knowledge of IT, enterprise architecture and business needs.

Enterprise IT architect certifications appear at the very apex of certification programs, where less than one percent of IT pros ultimately make the climb. Even so, numerous IT architect certifications are available, and it isn't necessary to invest in one particular certification sponsor's vision to make it to such certification heights.

In fact, many IT certifications in our best certification collection fall outside vendor umbrellas, which means they are vendor-neutral or vendor-agnostic in their take on IT. This makes sense considering heterogeneity is the rule for most of the major technology niches at play in data centers and global operations everywhere.

Nevertheless, the number of vendor-specific IT certifications exceeds vendor-neutral ones by a factor of more than two to one. That's why we devote the last section of this article to all such credentials as we encountered them in search of the best enterprise architect certifications.

Certainly, for those IT pros who've invested already in vendor-specific certification programs, the certs at the architect level may indeed be worth pondering and pursuing. Ultimately, the value of any IT certification to an individual depends on how much time he or she spends toiling in that particular part of the IT patch.
