These access offers present two of several new initiatives that began last year. They aim to extend SAP’s commitment to provide partners with the right resources to support their businesses. Ultimately, this also enables them to help their customers better.
SAP partners in the PartnerEdge program who have three consultants certified in operations capabilities for SAP applications running on S/4 Hana Cloud may qualify to receive free access to the test and demo systems.
Partners also qualify who have three consultants certified in operations capabilities for solutions running on C/4 Hana. C/4 Hana comprises five cloud solution portfolios; SAP Commerce Cloud, SAP Marketing Cloud, SAP Sales Cloud, SAP Service Cloud and SAP Customer Data Cloud.
Free access as commitment to partner success
“SAP’s partner ecosystem is central to our ability to provide businesses across the world with a roadmap to the intelligent enterprise,” said Adaire Fox-Martin, member of the Executive Board of SAP. “We continually evaluate the services we provide to our partners. This way, we ensure they are optimally equipped to deliver value to our customers. The test and demo systems on S/4 Hana Cloud and C/4 Hana are the latest offerings in our ongoing commitment to their success.”
The new offers will be available starting in the third quarter of 2019. The partner registration will remain open until September 30, 2019. Qualified partners who already purchased test and demo systems on S/4 Hana Cloud or C/4 Hana may renew their subscription for 12 months at no charge.
In addition, SAP announced that the test and demo systems on S/4 Hana Cloud will be available to partners at a significantly reduced price starting in the third quarter of 2019.
In December, SAP announced 12-month free access to SAP Cloud Platform. To date, more than 850 partners have subscribed.
Over 1,400 partners are building solutions on SAP Cloud Platform today; with more than 700 apps for SAP Cloud Platform already available on SAP App Center.
