Get Involved Early

SAP offers innovation adopter services to help you jump start your projects with SAP's latest products and solutions

Beta Programs

Beta programs provide you with early access to SAP software to test and see how it fits your business requirements. Beta shipments are provided under a Test and Evaluation Agreement (TEA) and can be used for testing purposes only. Productive usage is not allowed and is not supported under the maintenance and support agreement.

Your benefits:

  • Ability to test new product versions with your own processes, data and landscape before official release.
  • Opportunity to provide feedback on product functionality, usability and quality of new products before official release. 

Beta programs will be listed on the SAP Customer Influence site as they become available. Thus you get a complete picture of SAP’s influencing opportunities for your areas of interest.

Early Knowledge Transfer (EKT) is SAP's enablement offering for innovations. Available already with Release To Customer, it provides you with a head start to adopting new products.

Early Knowledge Transfer builds on and succeeds the Ramp-Up Knowledge Transfer (RKT) approach and is delivered using  the SAP SuccessFactors cloud-based SAP Learning Hub,  which provides:

  • Simple access to learning content through SAP SuccessFactors Learning programs and state-of-the-art online courses
  • Collaboration with other learners and SAP experts through Learning Rooms leveraging SAP Jam
  • Opportunities to practice and experience new SAP products hands-on

Simple and scalable access via SAP Learning Hub, supporting Early Adopter Care services

Early Knowledge Transfer now offers the same support and knowledge access for Early Adopter Care projects. Customers and partners have access via our cloud-based, SAP Learning Hub platform. This puts full access to Early Knowledge Transfer at the fingertips of all SAP Learning Hub subscribers. Moreover, those of you who participate in Early Adopter Care projects can request a time-limited free access to SAP Learning Hub.

Free Access to SAP Learning Hub (Time-Limited)

Early Adopter Care customers and partners are eligible for a 3-month free access period to all learning assets on SAP Learning Hub, restricted to 5 of their employees.

Customers can extend their employees' access for an additional 6-month period, which will be limited to their project-specific content only, unless they subscribe to the SAP Learning Hub.

Beyond the time-limited free access to SAP Learning Hub, customers and partners have the opportunity to purchase the full SAP Learning Hub Customer Edition, or register for the free SAP Learning Hub Discovery Edition in the SAP Training and Certification shop.
