SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) announced 12-month free access for partners to test and demo systems on SAP S/4HANA Cloud, the leading intelligent enterprise software, and on SAP C/4HANA, the market-leading suite of customer experience solutions.
These offers present two of several new initiatives that began last year to extend SAP’s commitment to provide partners with the right resources to support their businesses and ultimately their customers better. SAP unveiled the offers for SAP S/4HANA and SAP C/4HANA at the SAP Global Partner Summit taking place May 6 in Orlando, Florida.
SAP partners in the SAP PartnerEdge program who have three consultants certified in operations capabilities for SAP applications running on SAP S/4HANA 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 SAP C/4HANA. SAP C/4HANA comprises five cloud solution portfolios: SAP Commerce Cloud, SAP Marketing Cloud, SAP Sales Cloud, SAP Service Cloud, and SAP Customer Data Cloud.
“SAP’s partner ecosystem is central to our ability to provide businesses across the world with a road map to the Intelligent Enterprise,” said Adaire Fox-Martin, member of the Executive Board of SAP SE and president of Global Customer Operations. “We continually evaluate the services we provide to our partners to ensure they are optimally equipped to deliver value to our customers. The test and demo systems on SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP C/4HANA for our trusted partners are the latest offerings in our ongoing commitment to their success.”
The new offers will be available starting in the third quarter of 2019, with partner registration remaining open until September 30, 2019. Qualified partners who already purchased test and demo systems on SAP S/4HANA Cloud or SAP C/4HANA may renew their subscription for 12 months at no charge.
In addition, SAP announced that the test and demo systems on SAP S/4HANA Cloud will be available to partners at a significantly reduced price starting in the third quarter of 2019.
