Provide alternatives to ecosystem other than classroom training; this is the starting point for Learning Hub – a digital platform available any time or anywhere

“learn in a flexible way”

In 2017 – added live sessions; not formal classes; picks up a topic from live delivery.  Some topics require live delivery

Learning rooms offer social learning

In 2017 is to remove friction in Learning Hub; before not as easy to access.  Learninghub.sap.com is one URL (just learned) – one jump to the Learning Hub

Access to learning room is now a 1 click access

Another is finding content; performed metadata clean-up.  SAP retired old content so the search returns relevant results.

Question & Answer

Q:  How did you determine these to be the 8 solution areas?

A: Not easy; aligned what SAP calls the “portfolio” categories

Q: I think the pricing needs to be sensitive to PPP across geographies. For example, Average SAP salaries in India is around Euro 1200. There is no chance an independent consultant buying a professional edition. How are the adoption in APAC region?

A: Challenging topic; this is the latest “move” – fresh from the decision table to provide a 45% discount; there is no concrete discussions and SAP will listen to the market
