The Enterprise Services Repository (ESR) Content certification in its current version 1.0 focuses completely on the modelling and definition of synchronous inbound A2X services. Outbound services or A2A and B2B scenarios are not in the scope of certification.
A2X services are general-purpose services where the consumer (X) of the application (A) functionality is not pre-defined. They are requested for example for composite applications and for composite views. This certification does not certify the actual business functionality of the implementation. Nevertheless, linked to SAP's SOA methodology, some general implementation requirements must be fulfilled around fault message and log handling as well as service reliability.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) highly recommends that ISVs and partners, who are interested in certifying an integration of their product with SAP solutions, begin with our page Getting Started with Integration and Certification that explains the SAP ICC services and describes the process how to obtain them. This page helps you select the correct integration scenario and contains technical information, streaming media presentations, step-by-step guides, and much more.

Join the Enterprise Services Repository Content Certification (NW-ESR-CNT)!
Partners and ISVs who are interested in aligning their software interfaces with SAP's state-of-the art methodologies have shown a lot of interest in modeling and developing their own enterprise services.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center is now offering a new certification for such partner-delivered enterprise services, to ensure that these solutions are well aligned with SAP's SOA methodology, and to give these applications further credibility and exposure in the SAP ecosystem.
SAP NetWeaver 7.1
NW-ESR-CNT was introduced as a certifiable scenario in this release. For more information, see:
In addition to the technical interface specifications, please also refer to the applicable SAP Solution Manager Ready
Test System Recommendation from ICC
Companies provisioning enterprise services need to obtain an SAP NetWeaver developer license (request online) in order to get started. Usually partners install this system inhouse, but the SAP Integration and Certification Center can host this system for you as part of its SAP Remote Access and Connectivity Service.
If the implementation involves SAP backend integration, partners can subscribe to SAP ICC's hosted environment for backend integration testing. For more information on the hosted environment please visit the SAP Remote Access and Connectivity Service homepage.
Description about available test system options:
Read SAP ICC consultant Martin Vierling's blog about Integrating to SAP Solutions - Test System Opportunities for independent Software Vendors, where you can find the options of hosted SAP Test Systems and recommendations, if the hosted test system option is suitable for your certification.
5,000 Euros Per Certification (Euro currency applicable to all countries).
To understand all services and benefits included in this fee, please refer to the Getting Started Page.
Benefits of Certification
Customers using SAP-certified solutions in their SAP environment, as well as the ISVs and partners offering these, experience great benefits such as shorter implementation times, technical enablement, and marketing assets that certification provides.
