So i'm in the Financial Systems field (administer accounting software and basically hold people's hands through techie stuff) and i'd really like to start advancing into more business intelligence type stuff, and less administration. Currently i know enough to be dangerous in SQL, barely know VB. I'm about to take a certification course that my job will pay for, to get my MCSA for SQL server 2012. I don't have any other certs currently. I saw the MTA certification but i'm pretty savvy, i'm sure i could pass that test if i tried, but do i need to? if it's not a legit pre-req, i probably wont bother.
i'd also like to learn about the front facing aspects of SQL server as well, like publishing SSRS reports etc etc. does the MCSE cover stuff like that? I see business solutions stuff there, which is what i'd like to head towards.
