What does this mean for you? (Part I)
SAP has added Ariba and S/4HANA Cloud to the Delta Exam Schedule. As cloud-based systems evolve and change, consultants, programmers and configurators must keep their knowledge up to date in order to stay certified.
Since November 2016, SuccessFactors certified consultants have been required to review the new content and pass a Delta Assessment, ensuring that they would stay abreast of all newly released content.
The Delta Assessment must be to be passed for each certification held and before each quarterly deadline. Consultants that miss the Delta lose their certification (whether an associate or professional level) and provisioning access.
In August 2018, SAP announced that this is now also applicable to Ariba certified consultants and certified S/4HANA Cloud consultants.
The new Delta Assessment became available on the 6th of August 6th in the SAP Learning Hub. The Delta Assessment musto be completed before November 4th 2018.
The Delta Assessments are required for the following Ariba Certifications:
- C_ARCON – SAP Ariba Contracts
- C_ARP2P – SAP Ariba Procurement
- C_ARSOR – SAP Ariba Sourcing
- C_ARSUM – SAP Ariba Supplier Management
All certified Ariba consultants should have received an email about these changes, and are now required to access SAP Learning Hub to pass their assessment.
What happens if you do not pass your delta before the deadline? Unfortunately you will lose your Ariba certifications.
However, by staying current, not only will you ensure your certifications are still valid but you will also achieve a competitive advantage with the latest updates and knowledge of the SAP software product.
