Computer Engineering vs TIA certifications

Sorry I am not really an employer but I am a consultant. An the  
answer would be on what I was doing. If I was administering a cluster  
of databases I would rather someone with experience in handling them  
and though I hate to admit it the only way I could really tell is if  
someone had a certification in that database. But lets say I was  
doing something a little less specify, like just build an application  
for a company that I would be in charge of everything, I would look  
for someone with less of a specified certification and more broad  

Though I am hearing that more employers are looking for people with  
certifications rather than a degree.
