Being under Technology, is there any benefit to getting certified as a Technology Architect? Assuming I move to another technology company, does the certification hold any value outside of Accenture? (I feel the same for any internal certification) Or, would it be better to focus on certifications that are more recognized?

The best benefit I get from being an STA-Certified L6 is the annual TAWS in St. Charles. But with the pandemic, that was postponed last year, and will probably be postponed again this year. The other benefit is networking with other Architects. When they see you are certified, they know you speak the same language, and is able to communicate more effectively. Lastly, the MTA program is being advertised outside. They even created externally-validated badges, to market our TA skills to our clients. The journey to getting the STA certification has been great for me, as I’ve learned a LOT from the training, to my mentor/sponsors, up to my interviewer, and the Annual Workshops. So if you’d like to increase your Technology Architecture acumen, go ahead and undergo the program. If your goal is marketability outside, take external certifications instead.

I would always suggest to go for external certifications for better acceptance and visibility, unless you believe doing this internal certification helps in higher visibility and acceptance internally within Accenture!

Are you referring to a certification within Accenture or a Coursera type external certification?
