With the takeover being finalised and the existence of Brocade coming to an end are there any statements or comments on Broadcom inheriting Brocade certification?

Hi Erwin, Broadcom will not be moving forward with a certification program for Brocade. Existing exams will remain available until the end of January 2018, but the program will not continue after that point.
Antonio, thanks for replying with a link to the original announcement and Erwin if you have any further questions, please feel free to ask inline or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do my best to provide an answer.
Thank you both!

So basically everyting were 100's of engineers and companies have spent countless hours and money towards obtaining a great certification status is now being abandoned by Broadcom and is basically useless as a reference as it is no longer backed by an entitiy that holds and develops the equipment.
I think this might be communicated in a somewhat more clear statement than just pointing to the fact a few exams being retired because they have moved to Extreme.

Thank you for you answer. I'm inclined to disagree with you in some ways as the compamies who have acquired the equipment and software will for have different requirements especially when it comes to future proofing the skils required to install, operate and manage it. New education and certification pathways will be spawned up and as such the value of the Brocade certification is also deemed less valuable over time.

Thanks Erwin, I really appreciate your perspective!
