Newsbyte: SAP Named A Leader In IDC MarketScape: Worldwide IT Training & Education 2013 Vendor Analysis

WALLDORF, Germany, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) announced today that it has been positioned by IDC as a MarketScape leader for worldwide IT training and education. IDC recognized the company for its practice of delivering new software in tandem with training and for introducing new offerings designed to accelerate end-user enablement, increase adoption of SAP solutions and provide greater flexibility to consume learning content.


In "IDC MarketScape: Worldwide IT Education and Training 2013 Vendor Analysis," 1 IDC cites among the particular strengths of the SAP® Education organization its "large and diverse set of educational services offerings aligned by project life cycle," noting that "this reflects an industry best practice for comprehensive educational service offerings." The report also highlights the organization's "use of community of practice (CoP) to develop content, gauge interest level, and receive feedback" as an additional key strength."

SAP Education trains more than 500,000 individuals annually, offering over 600 courses on SAP® solutions via a combination of traditional classroom training, virtual live classrooms and online options. In 2012, the organization introduced two new offerings designed to accelerate end-user enablement, increase adoption of SAP solutions and provide greater flexibility to consume learning content: SAP® Workforce Performance Builder software and SAP® Learning Hub. SAP Education also supports customer adoption of innovations, regularly updating and expanding training and certification courses for the SAP HANA® platform. Staying in lock-step with the platform's dynamic release cycle, the organization has significantly extended offerings in this space, introducing a number of new courses and certifications for SAP HANA in early 2013.

"The SAP Education portfolio strategy is aligned with learning trends, which indicate an increasing shift toward informal, self-study modes of learning," said Markus Schwarz, senior vice president and global head of SAP Education. "Tapping into that trend, we provide cloud and mobile offerings to facilitate learning anytime, anywhere. We are committed to helping ensure greater adoption of SAP software innovation and enabling our customers to realize the full value of their SAP investment. Recognition of our efforts by IDC is validation of this commitment."
