If you are interested in SAP Cloud Solutions and want to earn an additional qualification on top of your existing solution specific achievements, you should consider “SAP Activate for Cloud Solutions Project Manager”.
Activate Training – Relevant Courses
The relevant courses to prepare for the exam are similar to the main C_ACTIVATE13 certification, which are
- ACT100 and
Activate Qualifications – Topic Areas’ Differences
The main difference, as you can see in the comparison provided below, between the two tests is about the transition paths.
The E_ACTCLD_21 focuses on the “New Implementation SAP S/4HANA Cloud”, unlike the other certification which requires you to learn about on-premise solution journey too.
Course Content Differences – Earlier and New Versions of Activate Methodology
If you attended training on earlier version(s) of the methodology, such as C_ACTIVE05 (as I did and explained in the Earning “SAP Activate Project Manager” Certification blog), please take note of the differences in ACT100 content.
The latest course version (13) provides a separate learning unit on the ‘Workstreams’, which is helpful in understanding role specific activities too.
For instance, if we look at the “Customer Team Enablement”, in addition to explaining the Enablement Options, you also learn about the activities performed by each of the roles, such as the Team Training Coordinator from Customer IT performs the following activities;
- Approval of target groups and curricular proposed by Education Services Consultant.
- Control training and attestation/certification attendance.
- Collect and follow-up on feedback from trainers and trainees on training and certification.
- Control achievement of the competence level required.
The other roles within the workstream, as described in the course book are Education Services Expert and Trainer (Implementation Partner), and Trainee (Customer Business, Customer IT).
In the previous course version (005), you could find the workstream related roles and activities by journey and phase.
Overall, the new ACT100 course is structured in 6 units, which provides the SAP Activate introduction, overview, and elements first and then explains the workstreams and transition paths.
The E_ACTCLD_21 exam, in terms of questions and time, is half the length of C_ACTIVATE13. It requires you to attempt 40 questions in 1.5 hours, and provide correct answers to at least 26 to pass the exam.
You can take the exam through the Certification Hub, which has two subscription options:
After passing the exam, like other SAP certifications, you earn a digital badge.
