Discover and Grow with our Partner Enablement Path for SAP Business Technology Platform

Nineteen years ago, I embarked on a journey that would ultimately lead me to my current role as the SAP BTP Enablement Portfolio Lead within Partner Solution Adoption in SAP’s Partner Ecosystem Success organization.  At that time, I joined Business Objects as a Presales Consultant for the Latin American and Caribbean region.  Since then, I have held various sales support positions, culminating in my appointment to the Partner Ecosystem Success organization in 2016.

Initially, my focus was on supporting SAP Analytics Partner enablement in North America.  However, my responsibilities have expanded since, and I now oversee global efforts to ensure that you – our valued Partners – have access to a wide range of enablement options within SAP BTP.  I am proud to be a part of such an innovative and dynamic organization and look forward to continuing to contribute to its and our partners’ ongoing success.

SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) is a cohesive, enterprise-focused, and inclusive system for the complete SAP community (Customers and Partners), empowering individuals to merge and generate significance from information and broaden their SAP and external application environments to fulfill changing business requirements.  Starting your learning in SAP BTP can present some initial difficulties due to the large number of resources available, that’s why we have strived to simplify this process by offering a simplified learning path consisting of three steps.

Digital learning & certification

Embarking on your learning journey for SAP BTP involves taking the first crucial step of visiting the Explore SAP Business Technology Platform landing page on the SAP Partner Portal (SAP Partner access only).  This resource is a treasure of information, including sales presentations, solution overviews and 1-pagers, strategic insights, brochures and infographics, commercial licensing models, marketing campaigns, customer success stories, and a plethora of other resources.

SAP Business Technology Platform Onboarding Resource Center (SAP Partner and Customer access) provides a wide variety of resources to assist you in your SAP BTP journey.  Gain a comprehensive understanding of SAP BTP services and offerings and receive guidance on the governance and structure of your SAP BTP deployments.  Access a range of helpful assets and resources, including self-service guidance and best practice sharing, to ensure a seamless onboarding experience.

We highly encourage you to develop the necessary skills at your own pace using our free Learning Journeys (SAP Partner and Customer access). These Learning Journeys are designed to equip you with the knowledge and expertise needed to excel in SAP BTP. In addition, they offer an excellent preparation path for the certification exams offered across the SAP BTP portfolio. Here are some recommended learnings to get you started:

You can complement your SAP BTP learning experience with our Partner Certification Academies (SAP Partner access only).  Our Partner Certification Academies offer live workshops that cover the same content as our learning journeys.  By participating in these workshops, you will have the opportunity to consume the content faster and more efficiently.  This will allow you to acquire the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in your role as a Partner quickly.

In addition, we have put incentives (SAP Partner access only) in place for eligible Partners who complete our Partner Certification Academies.  This is a great opportunity to not only improve your skills and knowledge but also to get certified and receive monetary reimbursements for your hard work.
