Set a new standard with SAP and IBM Cloud

For decades, IBM has worked closely with SAP. Now, we’re working even closer with our new certification program, SAP on IBM Cloud, to give you the most comprehensive understanding of how to run SAP infrastructure and environments in the cloud to help your clients succeed.

SAP is the global standard for enterprise resource planning (ERP) software—and when you earn SAP on IBM Cloud certification, you will learn global standard skills, too. Now you can help businesses benefit by enabling faster time to value, shifting capital expense to operating expense, and improving resilience and scalability.

Start this business transformation by developing your SAP on IBM Cloud skills.
