Let’s face it: When it comes to business transformation and shifting more and more workload to the cloud, organizations need to trust and rely on the skills of those who can bridge both business and technology needs to secure outcomes and stay the forefront of innovation. Hence it comes as no surprise that the role of the enterprise architect, who precisely has this proficiency, has become increasingly vital. In fact, the role was even the number one best career in the United States in 2022 according to a recent ranking by Glasdoor. Conversely, this means: Those who can demonstrate their expertise in enterprise architecture can be set up for success and career growth. And this is where a new certification program from SAP comes in.

Showcase your expertise and increase your marketability

Launched just a couple of hours ago, SAP has introduced the first role-based certification for enterprise architects with a clear career path and credentials. If you are an experienced SAP professional with a comprehensive understanding of solutions and technology, end-to-end business processes, reference architecture, and the strategic aspects of enterprise architecture, this new certification can help you stand out from the crowd, open new career opportunities, increase your earning potential, and foster job security. After all, a recent report shows that 37% of certified professionals received salary increases and 27% were offered job promotions.

Apply your knowledge to shine in the exam

To get certified, you can make use of SAP’s dedicated exam preparation guide to get you started on the topic areas and learning recommendations that will help you excel at your test. But don’t worry! The exam will not be based on theoretical knowledge only. You will have the chance to shine with applied knowledge. And before you take the test, you can easily connect with peers and SAP experts to exchange information about enterprise architecture, ask questions, search for answers, and access additional resources in a dedicated learning group.

Being future proof is what every organization wants to be. Get your skills validated with SAP’s latest enterprise architect certification, demonstrate that you are equipped with the skills to drive business value on a large scale, and take your career to the next level. You can find more information on the enterprise architect certification on the SAP Learning site.

I need guidance on How this certification is to be taken ?I don't require any classroom/virtual training as EA concept is not new in SAP

I am a TOGAF Certified Enterprise Architect with 3+ years in EA role (Focus on HR Transformation) and prior to that primarily on Solution Architect role in SAP HCM/SuccessFactors for 10+ years.

I don't see any clarity in below P_SAPEA_2023 Exam guide

Niladri, could you elaborate on what you mean by clarity? The guide shows what areas are covered by the new EA certification and their weighting and reference documents for content background. This is an overview document or guide. This is not a sample question and answer type of guide that some other certifications have.

Dear @Rene_de_Daniel 

Thanks a lot for this post. When I came across this certification a few days ago, I was really excited. With this ever changing world of SAP Suite of Products and with our Cloud first approach, it is an excellent opportunity to get certified as a SAP Enterprise Architect once you have done your TOGAF. 

Currently though, the Learning Journey is heavily reliant on a 5 day virtual training. Is there any plan to enable this learning journey via self-paced Learning Hub materials instead of an additional classroom training? Apologies if I have missed something obvious in terms of accessing learning content.

Hi @Subhrangsu,

 

thanks a lot for your feedback.

We are currently in the process of evaluating a  "quick starter" training e.g. as a pre-conference of the SAPInsider events.

For DSAG members we have a cooperation with the DSAG Academy which offers this a one-day training (in German).

 I will keep you updated.

Thanks @Rene_de_Daniel 

I will watch this space for further changes, while keeping my fingers crossed that eventually, SAP Learning Hub will host self-paced study materials to help lead up to this certification. Thanks for your speedy response.
