Thanks for your email . Very helpful insights . Your reply has been very
helpful . At the same time it is making me wonder if your reply would be
more relevant to me if were a project manager leading a group . But i am an
individual contributor ( not leading people ) and would like to remain one
and usually individual contributors are hired based on a skill set and I am
seeking to develop those skills . And that is where my question came from .
Please correct me if you think I am wrong .

To be brutally honest - Certifications in general are a good indicator of--
someone’s ability to memorize answers and “parrot” responses. While I’ve
found Oracle Certifications “better than most” as far as “suitability for
employment in a specific organization” indicators; they are still just ONE
factor in a complex human interaction.
So, this “Grumpy Old Guy’s” recommendation would be to concentrate on the
“human factors”, learning about why IT is important to business, how to
interact with people on project teams, how to adapt to change, and being a
good “generalist” as opposed to some specific technology which will be out
of date by the time you get your certification.

What would be more beneficial in the long term in your opinion?
Oracle OCM certification (and things learned during its time preparation )
or learning cloud .
I don’t want to do both as don’t get much free time and want to gain
expert level knowledge so that I am gainfully employed for next 5 years or
I am oracle performance dba in my current role .
So looking for insights on what community members here think .
I am interested in both , but thinking what value OCM will hold with all
the cloud focus these days . In my job I am getting chance to play with
python , so atleast I am learning a new skill currently too.
