As previously announced, SAP is running three challenges: for Mobile, SAP HANA and SAP HANA Cloud. This is the chance for all SAP partners to win an impressive trophy, extensive market exposure, and to "stick out from the crowd" on the SAP Store.

 

What do you as a partner need to do to be eligible for winning? By August 31st 2014

 

Partners that are already members of SAP PartnerEdge for Application Development and that have published an application after April 1st 2014 can simply fill out one of the submission forms (see above) and they are part of the race.

 

Partners that are currently building an application should make sure that they sign up *) as a full member of SAP PartnerEdge for Application Development by July 31st. This is essential, as by that date they will also need to submit their application for review or certification by SAP; a key step to be able to publish an application on the SAP Store.

 

The details of these challenges are described in the Terms and Conditions.

 

 

*) This means in practice that you must have signed a  "Platform Application Development and Cooperation Agreement" . Existing partners must first migrate from the

  • "Exploration - Platform Application Development and Cooperation Agreement" or the
  • "Mobile Application Development and Cooperation Agreement" or  the
  • "HANA Cloud Application Development and Cooperation Agreement")

to the  "Platform Application Development and Cooperation Agreement"

The SAP Quality Awards for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) celebrate customers that have excelled in the planning and execution of their SAP software implementations. These prestigious awards recognize customers that achieve extraordinary business transformation through the implementation of an IT solution, with careful planning and a commitment to elementary principles of quality.

By applying these principles, the customer establishes predictability and transparency in their project, whether they are implementing on-premise or cloud solutions. Customers (located in the EMEA region) are rewarded with incentives ranging from international recognition and press opportunities to attendance at local and regional award ceremonies. Naturally, the SAP Quality Awards for EMEA also impact partners participating in SAP PartnerEdge for Application Development. After all, many of our partners are deeply involved with SAP customers, and if these customers win these desirable awards, the partner will shine too !

 

How does this work?

The submission period for nominations opened in February, 2014. Nominations must be submitted online by the customers. More information about eligible markets can be found here. Partners and customers should read the criteria, which are relatively strict.

Partners that are working with customers in compelling projects should make these customers aware of this award, and motivate them to submit here.
