Capgemini is one of the world’s top providers of consulting, technology, and outsourcing services. The company helps clients around the globe improve their company’s performance and competitive positioning. To do so, the Capgemini consultants must continually develop deep industry expertise to be at the top of their game.
That’s why Capgemini India created an innovative process that lets consultants earn SAP certifications when it is convenient for them, which means they no longer have to interrupt customer engagements to take a certification program.
Learning when it’s convenient and more meaningful
The company developed several mass certification drives that are spread through a year, and they use various SAP offerings to make sure the consultants are well prepared to take exams on a flexible schedule. One of them is SAP Learning Hub, which helps Capgemini’s consultants prepare for SAP certification exams at their convenience, when they can devote the proper time and attention to learning new skills.
SAP Learning Hub provides Capgemini consultants with a cloud-based solution that is accessible from anywhere. It provides learners with an unsurpassed range of content, including unlimited access to SAP handbooks, e-learning courses, and ramp-up knowledge. The site also includes SAP expert-moderated online Learning Rooms as well as information on how to participate in SAP Live Access for hands-on practice with SAP systems.
Prioritizing certification helps put Capgemini India in the lead
Capgemini India is leading the ranks in SAP certifications in the country, helping its consultants stand out from others. SAP Global Certification not only instills greater confidence in world-class skills and performance for the consultants, but also with clients. Clients know that Capgemini consultants have the right process knowledge and capabilities to deliver projects successfully. This helps increase project wins and more success throughout the company.
Plus, executives have a comprehensive view into consultant skill sets, allowing better “up-skill” plans to raise consultants’ expertise, rate-card, or release level. And the company is realizing greater pass rates, increased motivation, and more billable time with this planned certification approach, resulting in a quantifiable competitive differentiation.
More certifications means more business
With expertise validated by the SAP Global Certification program, Capgemini consultants have a broader reach, which helps the company stand out in the market, win more deals, and deliver the best solutions to clients.
The company plans to continue the consultant certification program and use the success in India as a global standard. The company also plans to establish a similar certification and on-boarding process with SAP for newly hired graduates. And it wants to increase use of SAP Learning Hub in future mass certification programs.
