Future of SAP Certification and SAP Certified Professionals

Dear SDNers,

I am posting this forum to invite all the SAP Professionals specially SAP Certified Professionals to discuss the future of SAP Certification and SAP Certified Professionals.

Today i was browsing the forum discussions on SDN and i found one forum in which there was a link pointing to a website for SAP certification questions and when i went on that site, i shocked to see that there are more than 100 SAP certification questions published on the internet.

I again shocked to know that these kinds of discussions are still available on SDN and SAP has not taken any action against that website who has published these questions.

I just want to discuss if the SAP certification questions will be easily available on the internet then what will be the value of that certification and what will be the value of certified professionals.

I request to all of the SDNers and specially SAP Certified Professionals to take this discussion further towards a preventive action taken by SAP to stop these kinds of offences and to improve the certification process.

If you have any kind of suggestions for improving the certification process then you are most welcome in this thread.

Thanks & Regards

Sumit Bhutani

Ok, my 2 cents for this discussion.

There are mainly two points here:

1. Even though I fully agree that SAP certification methods are outdated and they should be reviewed since they are creating a really critical gap between the really experienced people and the bookworms, I do not think that is to be discussed here. I mean, not in XI forum anyway. That is a discussion to be taken to community level forums. And the point is that they have already been discussed there, and no action followed...

2. the real problem we should address here, in XI forum and all other SDN tech forums as well, is about the problem of people who come ask for certification material and get answers! The topic shouldn't even be allowed to be created, and even less to get answers. What SDN forums lack, and lack bad, is a full-time active moderation. I mean, there is no moderation at all. These same topics are there to be searched and viewed at any time, and SAP itself (by the means of SDN admins and moderators) doesn't give a damn about them. That is what is really f***** up, in the forums point of view.

Sorry for the harsh words,

Henrique.
