The organization supports customer adoption of innovations, with training for the SAP HANA® platform as one of the best-selling early product training courses in its history. SAP Education provides scalable, affordable and flexible offerings combining learning services and software, as well as learning content that can be consumed online to help ensure enablement continues across the life cycle."A key goal of SAP Education is to ensure that all customer audiences can build the knowledge they need to successfully use SAP solutions" said Markus Schwarz, global head, SAP Education.
