How Many of Your SAP Consultants are SAP Certified?
If you're looking for a SAP Professional Services Consulting organization, the best method to ensure you end up with a consultancy that lets you maximize your SAP ROI is by looking for these things:
- Make sure your SAP Professional Services Consulting organization lets you take maximum advantage of SAP Certified Consulting resources.
If it doesn't, you'll have trouble getting the ‘best’ out of your SAP system and services.
It is best to have a good mix of senior SAP Consultants and SAP Certified Consultants (who are normally senior as well) Learn why here.
- Ensure your SAP Professional Services IT Consulting organization has an Industry Specific Practice so you can consult with their Industry Principals.
Did you know SAP has more than 30 Industry Specific Solutions, which you can mix and match to arrive at your solution?
- Any good SAP Industry Principal should be able to provide you with an integrated, holistic, business solution map.
This is important because SAP is a vast system of systems, especially when you include their partner solutions (more than 1300 at last count).

While not necessary, some great bonus features of a high performance SAP Professional Services Consulting organization are an ability to rapidly staff your project with SAP Certified Resources, be an active contributor to the SAP body of knowledge, and have a highly evolved Consultant Care organization.
