Why Certification Is a Valuable Investment for SAP Partners Using SAP Business Technology Platform

Concerns over ongoing inflation, a global recession, and persisting supply chain issues are compelling companies to improve their resilience in any way they can. And in most cases, this includes innovating changes that can optimize their business models, safeguard their value chains, accelerate workflows and processes, and deliver more valuable outcomes.

However, most organizations do not have the skill, confidence, and technical expertise to deliver successful innovations independently. So instead, they choose to use the services of an SAP partner that is certified as knowledgeable on the latest digital technologies and capabilities, best practices, and proven business scenarios.

Such reliance is not completely surprising, according to Pavel Penaz, global head of partner solution adoption strategy and execution for SAP Business Technology Platform at SAP. “Compared to their noncertified counterparts, certified consultants speed implementation times by up to 15% and deliver projects with less rework and higher customer satisfaction, according to IDC,” he shares in his blog.

“We’ve all heard the ancient wisdom that ‘knowledge is power,’” Penaz continues. “But a consistent and lasting display of knowledge can be a driver of confidence, trust, ingenuity, and growth. SAP partners establish that reality by taking advantage of the SAP Certification program.”

Through the SAP Learning site, partners have free access to learning content and certification testing for various developer and consultant competencies and specializations across different SAP solutions and services, including SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP).

Certification plays a crucial role in the SAP partner competency framework, which recognizes a partner’s SAP practice in a solution, line of business, or industry area. Once a certification is achieved, the partners receive visible proof of certification awards in their listings, in SAP Partner Finder. In addition, partners can leverage digital certification badges in their marketing materials.
