This IDC paper analyzes the career impact of IT professionals who are certified EMC Proven Professionals. EMC, in conjunction with IDC, fielded this survey in November 2009 to a population of individuals who have achieved one or more EMC Proven Professional certifications. A total of 3,233 respondents were recorded for this worldwide survey. Respondents came from the Americas (39%), EMEA (34%), and Asia/Pacific including Japan (27%), representing EMC business partners (21%), customers (9%), other industry professionals (15%), and college students (1%). The balance was made up of EMC employees. Non-EMC respondents comprise all respondents excluding EMC employees. Of the respondents, just over one-third (35%) held certifications from other leading technology companies, of which Microsoft (40%) and Cisco (28%) featured most prominently.
