SAP Provides Partners Free Access to SAP Cloud Platform

WALLDORF SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced free access for SAP partners to SAP Cloud Platform, offering them testing, demonstration and development licensing services. This open platform as a service (PaaS) acts as a single framework for SAP partners to build and extend on existing SAP solutions.

Through this incentive current SAP partners can renew their subscription to the core SAP Cloud Platform for up to 12 months at no charge. New SAP partners can subscribe to one of the options of the core SAP Cloud Platform (this offer excludes members of the open ecosystem). In both cases, SAP partners also have the choice of one additional service (with up to 64 GB) provided by the SAP HANA business data platform for SAP Cloud Platform.

“SAP is committed to bringing its partners to the cloud and, as a result, making it easier for customers to bring their business to the cloud as well,” said Björn Goerke, chief technology officer and president, SAP Cloud Platform, SAP. “Now that over 3,700 SAP partners have joined our cloud strategy, the free resources will help them accelerate application development in a way that best fits their customer base.”

With over 100 cloud-based solutions available to partners through SAP Cloud Platform, the SAP ecosystem will have faster access to resources available in the cloud, building on the base of more than 150 million subscribers to SAP Cloud Platform. In addition, partners can then sell the solutions they build on the SAP App Center and join more than 1,100 partners with over 1,600 apps already available there.

New partners can choose to access the free resources on SAP Cloud Platform through a self-service portal. Existing partners who have already purchased one of the options of the core SAP Cloud Platform or an additional service of the SAP HANA business data platform for SAP Cloud Platform will receive an e-mail from SAP inviting them to renew their subscription. Partners can learn more by visiting the Web site for the SAP PartnerEdge program.
