STOP and read the latest update: UPDATE – SAP BusinessObjects Certification Exam Realignment (Announcement and FAQ).
In today’s highly competitive market, individuals who demonstrate that they possess essential business and technological skills enjoy a significant advantage over their peers. This is particularly true if your expertise includes SAP and SAP BusinessObjects software. Your proven knowledge of SAP applications and technology is your passport to a wide range of opportunities. Whether you are a consultant or an employee, your skills are in great demand, and validation of those skills is critical.
Today’s businesses are taking a hard look at their investments and the returns they generate. Part of that scrutiny focuses on the proficiency and proven capabilities of the people they choose to implement and operate their SAP applications. To accelerate your career, you need to demonstrate that you are part of an elite group that has the talent and experience required to optimize SAP software.
The SAP certification program provides that competitive edge. Those who hold SAP certification have obtained their skills through rigorous study and direct experience and have proven themselves by passing demanding, process-oriented examinations.
Effective April, 2010, there will be new SAP BusinessObjects certification exams available after realignment with the SAP certification program. All existing SAP BusinessObjects exams will be retired at the end of April and will be replaced by the following three exams:
