I’ve been learning MS Technologies since 1995 and certifying from Windows NT in 1999. I am MCP , MCSA , MCSE and Azure Fundamentals Engineer.
Of course, worth it for me as I’ve build my career and experience around it. The current advice for Microsoft Certifications in Level of Complexity is :
Azure Fundamentals (AZ900)
Azure Administrator Associate (AZ-104)
Azure Developer Associate (Exam AZ-203)
Azure Security Engineer Associate
Azure Data Engineer Associate
Azure Solution Architect (Expert)
Azure DevOps Engineer (Expert)
Microsoft Azure Certifications are great to show your potential as Solution Architect or as an Azure administrator or developers for middle to expert roles.
If i have to restart my career i will focus on starting roles as Devops Engineer or Python / .Net Developer which would give me more tools to work as an Senior Architect Today.
If I have to choose a new Path maybe i will Focus on
VMware ESX/ NSX solutions .
AWS Solution Engineer / Architect
Unix Engineer / Architect
BI / Data / IOT Engineer / Developer .
But this is very personal ,  I hope my answer finds you well. Please share and commen
