Share your Expertise and Knowledge

Throughout the entire duration of our partnership, SAP will look after your needs as a reference customer. A dedicated SAP contact will work out a program with you, tailored to the aims and requirements of your business. You decide which activities you want to engage in and how often you want to participate in them. Your company makes all the final decisions regarding reference engagements or marketing assets to be released for publication.

  • Your Benefits

You decide which activities you want to engage in and how often you want to participate in them. SAP encourages ongoing participation of customers in the program.
