The Cloud Architect role for SAP Partners was introduced in January 2022. This new role is a qualification requirement for the SAP PartnerEdge Sell Authorization for RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition.

With the April 2022 legal notification, we announced a new mandatory training for the Cloud Architect role, effective July 15, 2022. This training is part of the Learning Journey RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition: Cloud Architect. It is listed as a new tile under the “Become Competent” section.

Once completed all mandatory training, Cloud Architects can apply for a 1:1 validation and earn a Global Badge for Advisory Skills.


Additionally, a new optional course on GxP Training for Cloud Architect is now offered under the “Expand your Skills” section.

GxP stands for “Good xPractice”. It is a general term for quality management-regulated regulations and guidelines.

      Hi Mayank,

      the coaching required to earn the badge is based on real opportunities.

      If your company has open opportunities please reach out to the assigned Cloud Architect to get the coaching sessions and this will result in the badge assignment at the end.
