Become a Partner

The Power of Partnership

SAP and our partner ecosystem are uniquely positioned to help every customer become an intelligent enterprise. Join us in our mission to help every customer become a best-run business and make the world run better.

There is really no better time to become an SAP partner– SAP’s leading technology platforms, enriched and extended by your unique IP, delivered in the cloud and powered by the intelligent enterprise represents the opportunity of a generation.
Intelligent enterprises operate with visibility, focus, and agility to achieve game-changing outcomes. They do more with less and empower employees through process automation. They deliver a best-in-class customer experience by proactively responding to customer expectations. They invent new business models and revenue streams.
Our strategy is to deliver the intelligent enterprise for our customers so they can achieve their desired outcomes. But we can’t do it alone. Only when we join forces with businesses like yours can we deliver on the promise to help our customers create smart, best-run businesses that help make the world run better.

A Program That Fits Your Business

We designed the SAP PartnerEdge program to work and grow with you with four simple engagement models – build, sell, service, and run. 

Choose an engagement model and join SAP today

Access simplified contracts, standardised and discounted program fees,  a Value Points system that rewards you based on your total company contribution, and increased benefits as you progress through each level of the program.

Build solutions

Ideal for partners such as OEMs, independent software vendors (ISVs), and application developers that build solutions on top of, or integrate with, SAP technology and platforms. Ready to design, innovate, and market your solutions?

Sell solutions

Typically for resellers and value-added resellers (VARs) that resell, implement, and support customers in the cloud and on premise. You can own the entire customer lifecycle, or collaborate with other partners or SAP.

Service solutions

SAP service partners are consultants or systems integrators (SIs) that provide strategic business consulting, system design, solution integration, and project implementation of SAP solutions. 

Run solutions

As an outsourcing or hosting partner, you can offer SAP solutions to customers through a private or public cloud. Add your own intellectual property or enhance cloud solutions from SAP with your own industry or line-of-business expertise.

Competency Framework

Businesses are seeking trusted advisers with digital transformation proficiency to address immediate needs and future goals. To help customers find the right SAP partners to work with, SAP recently introduced the Competency Framework. Now with the newly launched competency and specialisation designations, partners can showcase their SAP expertise, experience and the maturity of their SAP practice in delivering customer success, increasing their market visibility to stand out from the competition.

Take a Test Drive

Not ready to commit to one of our full-fledged SAP PartnerEdge engagement models listed above? You can take SAP for a partnership test-drive simply by becoming an “open ecosystem” partner. This is an entry point to our SAP PartnerEdge program and allows you to access and explore a limited amount of enablement, product content, and program information without any risk or cost.
