The Power of Partner-to-Partner Collaboration: Accelerating Customer Success
As we begin to deliver upon the promise of Intelligent Enterprise, the need for end-to-end integrations across the company is critical for success. For partners, that means identifying the areas where you can best apply your expertise and experience—as well as the areas where you can’t. As SAP’s Hans Georg Uebe wrote last quarter, “Even the best partners can’t do it all themselves.”
Partner-to-partner networking has never been more important to the SAP partner economy. SAP has developed several initiatives to help partners find peers with complementary skills sets and services to ensure that customers get everything they need, when they need it.
Building partner-to-partner relationships delivers more value to your customers, but also opens doors for additional opportunities from peers – incremental business that lets others take advantage of your unique industry-specific, regional or technological capabilities. With a growing explosion of partner IP and specializations, developing these relationships is especially imperative in the cloud application world.
As the Intelligent Enterprise continues to transform our customers and propel their success, peer-to-peer networking will only accelerate that process. Now’s the time to explore potential partnerships and market your specific skills to other partners.
Here’s a detailed look at three SAP programs that will help get you started on the road to partner-to-partner collaboration:
