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.

  • It’s great to read that SAP is alligning the SBOP certification exams with the SAP certification programme. What I’d like to know is what happened to the Data Integrator exams? Will they be added to the programme at a later time? Will they still be available via Vue?
      • I had finished the 2 exams required to acquire BOCP Webi 3.0 certification.

        what will happened to this certificate and do i need to do update exam for it?

        • Another excellent question.  So you know, I am working with our global certification team on an FAQ that should address these and other questions regarding the realignment.  Once the FAQ is ready, I will create another posting.  Thanks.
  • Will existing Business Objects certifications be automatically upgraded or will we need to resit an exam to upgrade them?

    Also do you know when the FAQ will be published and whether there will be a wider announcement on the subject?



    • Hi Mike
      Thanks for the question.  I already included it the list I sent to the global team for the FAQ.  Once I get the FAQ document, I will make a determination as to the best method of communication.  For this particular message, I used a number of different communication outlets and may need to do the same with the FAQ.
