The ITIL certification program can be of benefit. The knowledge however, is more important than the certification, in my no so humble opinion

If you are in IT, doing IT operations work or support or if you are in IT development and testing, ITIL, CoBIT, ISO 20000, PRINCE2/PMP, and the specific certifications for vendors - microsoft, cisco, red hat, oracle, etc - have benefits if you get the certification and the knowledge. However, this also depends on what you are doing or want to do in an IT Career or job.

If you are a code developer, then the first skills / certification should be around the code and the related system certifications. Then you would deal with the other types of certification

However, merely gettign a certificvation as some sort of collection of certifications is contraindicated

The certificate itself is actually bland and tasteless. Even if you add it to lutefisk, it still does not change the taste of either the lutefisk or the certificate paper. The paper is still bland and tasteless
