Microsoft has certification for the SQL Server product with the release of the 2012 version certifications. For a while some Microsoft certifications tended to be less meaningful than other industry certifications. With the launch of the 2012 certs, Microsoft is attempting to make them harder and more full-featured in an attempt to boost the relevance of the certifications.
Microsoft SQL Server certifications allow you to focus on one or more area of specialization:
Database Administrator - day-to-day server administration and maintenance.
Database Developer - extract and manipulate your data, optimize performance.
Business Intelligence - analyze and mine information from your data.
