SAP, in the Asia Pacific Japan region, has identified the need to grow the Cloud resource market by 300% over the next 12 months. We are looking for innovative and strategic cloud partners who are leading the way in up-skilling and re-skilling their resources in SAP Cloud & Cloud Certification.

We at SAP, are pro-actively reaching out to our partners who are going to lead this change with us now!

SAP Platinum Academy

SAP Global Partners Organisation in conjunction with SAP Education, has developed the SAP Platinum Academies for Cloud Solutions to address the current cloud skills gap. The highly subsidised program consists of the following 2 development tracks:

  • Condensed workshops + SAP Learning Hub + SAP Cloud Certification


  • SAP Learning Hub (self-study) + SAP Cloud Certification.

To book your SAP Learning Hub, Partner Edition reach out to the SAP contacts listed at the end of this blog post!

Benefits to partners:

  • Up to 70% discount on retail offering
  • 100% self-study option to minimise disruption from ongoing commitments
  • Workshop style enablement, reducing the overall study days
  • Expert led workshop that augment the learning experience

SAP Learning Hub, the 24*7, cloud based content platform is the foundation for the SAP Platinum Academies. SAP Learning Rooms support the collaborative learning experience during and post Academies. To optimise the learning experience, we recommend that individuals who are taking part in the SAP Platinum Academies already have some project experience and some foundational knowledge in business processes or solution processes in the selected area.

SAP Cloud Certification

SAP Certification is our ‘stamp of quality’. We highly encourage all partner resources to pass SAP Cloud Certification within 6 months of the Platinum Academy. We are currently releasing new cloud certifications. We highly encourage all certified individuals to post their SAP Certification Credentials in the SAP Credential Manager.  This opt-in searchable database gives companies a way to verify and search for certified consultants.  More than 11,000 individuals have already registered in SAP Credentials Managers across Asia Pacific and Japan.
