When I started I was working with punched-tape and 32Mb disk drives the size of a fridge, by eck.
I did get an MCSE back when NT4 became Windows 2000 Server but I don't think they're [qualifications] that relevant.
As some things are moving to the cloud or virtualisation and internal datacentres / infrastructures are shrinking you need to have many strings to your bow as Guvernator says.
If you're asking is MCITP worth doing if you have to fund it yourself I'd say not. IF you want to make contract money Cisco is always handy - everyone needs networks whether you're in the cloud or not.
