The SAP partner economy is growing at a torrid pace. By 2024, IDC says, SAP partners will generate nearly $200 billion in net-new revenues. That means the partner economy will double in just five years.
With this much at stake for partners and their customers, SAP is doing everything it can to ensure those partnerships remain strong amidst the evolving cloud marketplace.
This year at SAP Global Partner Summit and SAPPHIRE NOW, a number of related opportunities to learn about the latest innovations, insights and solutions are taking shape for attendees. For partners and the value they provide to customers, this starts with partner managed cloud (PMC).
With partner managed cloud, providers can seamlessly deliver SAP solution portfolios such as SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Ariba with their own IP and industry expertise.
Offered directly to the customer in the partner’s cloud, this approach offers customers the flexibility in terms of packaging, pricing and terms. For partners, this allows them to protect and grow install-based accounts, penetrate new markets, and accelerate sales cycles, all while customizing offerings to their own skill set and tailoring to the needs of their customer.
With nine theater sessions happening over the course of the events, and 31 PMC partner exhibitors on hand to showcase their experience, there are several opportunities to learn more. Whether you are a partner or potential customer, you can start building your schedule now through the online agenda builder so you don’t miss a moment.
