As the SAP SuccessFactors ecosystem continues to grow, it's important for you to be able to validate the experience of the partners you choose to support your solutions. SAP has two programs to help you identify the right partner: Consultant Certification and Recognized Expertise.
Many are familiar with Consultant Certification, which is at the individual level. A consultant can hold either an Associate or Professional Certification. Associate is the base level and means that a consultant has completed SAP SuccessFactors training on a specific module and pass a certification exam. Professional means that a consultant has completed the Associate training, plus led three (3) SAP SuccessFactors projects within the last three years. The projects require validation from the client and must be referenceable. In addition, the consultant must be current on all applicable certifications and delta assessments to ensure they are up to date on the latest features for each module in which they hold a certification.
SAP Recognized Expertise (REX)
Similar to the consultant certification, SAP has an accreditation program at the company level called SAP Recognized Expertise to ensure that a partner has a minimum skillset, in terms of both education and experience. SAP offers REX accreditation in four (4) SAP SuccessFactors solution areas:
To earn a REX accreditation in a specific solution area, partners must have:
REX applications are validated by SAP that all the criteria have been met and then given the Recognized Expertise designation.
What this means for you: If you're working with a partner that holds REX certifications, you can be confident in their ability to deliver SAP SuccessFactors solutions, that they hold specific solution expertise, and most importantly, have successfully worked with other clients to deliver quality projects.
As an organization focused on the growth and development of our team, we're proud to say that each of our consultants are certified (some of which are certified in multiple modules). As a company we hold 3 REX certifications. We couldn't have achieved the REX certifications without our wonderful team and amazing partnerships with our clients.
