SAP is making significant enhancements to SAP App Center, where customers can discover, try and buy trusted partner apps based on SAP solutions. SAP also unveiled the SAP Endorsed Apps initiative, designed to help customers solve key business challenges and become best-run intelligent enterprises.
“We’re bringing a whole new level of partner commitment — uniquely designed to improve experiences and drive success for our customers, while helping our partners innovate and monetize their apps, extensions and solutions,” said Adaire Fox-Martin, SAP executive board member, head of customer success. “As business moves at an ever-faster pace, we want to help partners deepen customer relationships and ensure they’re delivering the innovative solutions customers need, when they need them.”
SAP App Center includes over 1,500 partner solutions for use across all SAP products lines and industries.
With updates to the overall user experience, customers can easily look for solutions based on the SAP product they want to extend, the certification level, the publisher and the type of solution, all in a user-friendly format. Additional improvements include enhanced product pages and streamlined calls to action.
SAP App Center is the only place where SAP partners can market and deliver solutions with go-to-market (GTM) activities to SAP’s 440,000-plus customers.
The new partner cockpit lets partners manage opportunities, from initial start to closed deals, in one easy-to-use place, and they can track the performance of solutions on SAP App Center via the analytics dashboard.
The new publishing cockpit makes it simple and easy for partners to onboard new solutions and maintain existing ones.
SAP technology — including SAP Commerce Cloud solutions, the open-source project “Spartacus,” the Kyma runtime for SAP Cloud Platform Extension Factory, and the SAP Cloud Platform Integration service — brings these enhancements to life.
SAP has unveiled the Partner Solution Progression framework as part of its next-generation partnering movement providing a flexible, easy-to-navigate path to help partners more quickly bring their innovations to market.
