Many years have passed since the forum had started, and I'm sure that several new certs have come and many older certs had retired. In your opinion, which are the most sought after certifications (in IT) now a days?

Me too...I have been visiting the board once in a while. I'm still in IT though not taking any certification exams.

About ITIL: ITIL abbreviation stands for IT Infrastructure Library. The OGC, an office of HM Treasury (UK), is independent body and involved in ITIL (independent from software companies, software vendors, integrators, training protocols).
