#VCP accreditation is commodity? You need to be VCP+! #millshilljobsindex

VMware contract vacancies down 20.12% & VMware permanent vacancies trading 21% off reporting year high.

Is this a sign that the VCP is commoditised – is it the ‘new MCSE’, i.e. you have to have but its not that bling on its own anymore?

I have long thought that the market now and for the near future you have to be VCP +, i.e.

VCP + Storage accreditation


VCP + VDI technologies


VCP + Networking technologies


VCP + cloud in a box technologies

Comments most welcome.
