Another US Sapphire has passed and it was great to meet with many of our existing partners as well as organizations that are interested in becoming partners with SAP. I frequently receive emails and phone calls from organizations requesting "How do I become a member of the SAP NetWeaver Partner Initiative" and I wanted to share this information with you all.
First, we welcome you to become a partner with SAP and become part of the growing SAP NetWeaver Partner Initiative. For information on how to partner with SAP please go to http://www.sap.com/partners/howtopartner/.
The SAP partner program provides excellent partnership opportunities in eight strategic categories. Each partner category has its own guidelines, participation levels, commitments, and targets and metrics for evaluating success.
When you partner with SAP, you enter into a mutually beneficial agreement to actively cultivate the market for SAP solutions and to work closely with SAP to develop and deliver the SAP business platform. Consequently, SAP looks for companies that are leaders in their fields. Most importantly, our customers must be able to put their trust in SAP partners for every phase of their SAP project.
To start the partnering process, just complete the following online application: http://www6.sap.com/partners/howtopartner/application/. Once your application has been processed and approved, you can begin enjoying the benefits of partnering with SAP. There is an addendum required to become a member of the SAP NetWeaver Partner Initiative and our appropriate regional contacts will be happy to assist once you have been approved as an official SAP partner.
