A key to SAP’s success is ensuring that the professional learning path of skilled SAP practitioners is continually supported – thereby making qualified experts on their cloud solutions readily available to customers, partners and consultants.
In a world where current knowledge and skills are more important than ever, SAP needed a way to verify that their cloud consultants around the world were keeping their knowledge and skills up-to-date with rapidly changing technology. A representative of the certification program at SAP comments:
“It became clear that a certification that lasted for two or three years didn’t cut it any longer – in all areas of the portfolio. Everything is evolving so quickly, and SAP has to always support current, validated knowledge.”
Best Practices from SAP
The move to the cloud required some fundamental changes to SAP’s existing certification program. What challenges did they face? What technologies are they using to ensure the security of the program? Join us on the 21st of October for a breakfast briefing in London, where Ralf Kirchgaessner, Manager of Global Certification at SAP, will discuss the answers to these questions. Ralf will tell how the SAP team planned for the program, explain its benefits and share lessons learned.
The briefing will include a best-practice seminar on the types of technologies and techniques to consider using as part of your assessment program to securely create, deliver and report on high-stakes tests around the world. It will highlight technologies such as online invigilation, secure browsers and item banking tools that alleviate the testing centre burden and allow organisations and test publishers to securely administer trustable tests and exams and protect valuable assessment content.
What’s a breakfast briefing?
You can expect a morning of networking, best practice tips and live demonstrations of the newest assessment technologies.The event will include a complimentary breakfast at 8:45 a.m. followed by presentations and discussions until about 12:30 p.m.
