    What are the best Big Data Certifications that are available? And, which certification is likely the best one in terms of salary or job potential?

    If you are interested in a big data certification, you could aim for one of the associate level certifications available in such fields as information storage and management; cloud infrastructure and content management. Most require extensive work history in that niche before certification is allowed.

    Some of the top level certifications are for Cloud Architect and Data Center Architect. There are even EMC certifications aimed at engineers and administrators. If that fits your current or previous work experience this might be a good choice for you.

    Certified Analytics professional is another popular choice, though you will need to obtain the CAP certification by passing an exam which tests your knowledge of analytics process from framing business and analytic problems to acquiring data, methodology, model building, deployment and model lifecycle management.

    A certificate in analytics; optimizing big data might be right for you if you are a practicing professional business/marketing or operations manager or data analyst or financial industry professional. This undergraduate study certificate introduces you to tools you will need on the job including analyzing large data sets; and importing data into analytic software.

    The EMCDSA is another good option for certification. And, the Cloudera Certified Developer for Hadoop (CCDH) or Cloudera Certified Professional Data Scientist are two excellent career certifications that guarantee a high paying salary and good job stability.

    Vendor specific certifications such as the Oracle Big Data Appliance platform certification will be just as valuable for working in some specific jobs as a more generic certification. The vendor specific certification will guarantee to an employer that you are knowledgeable specifically in that environment and not just a spectrum of all big data niches.

    Do you have an advanced or bachelors degree in mathematics, statistics or computer science? This is going to be a requirement regardless of your certification. As for which certification you should choose, Hadoop seems to be a popular choice.
