BPX Education and certification | SAP Blogs

WRITTEN BY: supportmymoto.com STAFF

On common I get about three mails per week with the query: ” How can I turn into a BPXer” Lots of you’re coming from a technical background in addition to folks from a purposeful background.  On this weblog I’ll attempt to clarify what I do know, additionally what I have no idea thus far ( March 2008 ) and what we’re engaged on throughout the BPX group community group.

The place to start out first

I all the time counsel to folks to start out with going to the The Neighborhood Solutions the Query: What Does a Enterprise Course of Skilled Do?on BPX and click on on what does a BPXer do:

There are some actual assets offered by the group comparable to Mario Herger”s collection.

Enterprise Course of Skilled Half 1 – What Is the Drawback At present?
Enterprise Course of Skilled Half 2 – How Can the BPX Remedy the Drawback?
Enterprise Course of Skilled Half 3 – What Are the BPX Expertise and Instruments?

Final 12 months at TechEd in Las Vegas, I offered an introduction session on find out how to turn into a BPXer and that was recorded in video and is on the market to you free of charge.


One of many key slides within the presentation is a spiderweb diagram that I supplied with 6 key vectors an aspiring BPXer want to coach themselves on:

  • eSOA & IT Information Expertise ( TOGAF, ESC, CE, Enterprise Structure, and so forth)

  • Enterprise Course of Modeling(& BPMN) Information ( e.g. Six Sigma and BPMN )

  • Software & (Business) Answer Information ( what is on the market, find out how to use)

  • Composition Device Information ( comparable to ARIS & Visible Composer )

  • Internet 2.0 & Neighborhood & Social Media Information

  • Person Expertise and UI information

  • Comfortable Expertise & Sensible expertise

Some folks may consider this as 8 or extra vectors. Nonetheless when folks ask me how can I turn into BPXer, from what we now have realized thus far these are a few of the true important vectors somebody ought to have. Equally we all the time say {that a} BPXer is somebody with one foot in enterprise and one foot in IT.  As I’ve developed my interplay with extra BPX group members I believe we must always no less than advert one additional vector (maybe extra as talked about earlier than)

  • Means to construct and promote a enterprise case & handle a challenge from begin to publish implementation & measure

Some folks have informed me: you need to put that into the smooth talent and sensible expertise bucket. I go away it as much as you, the viewers to resolve.

Up to now SAP Schooling has not indicated that they may begin offering certification in areas comparable to smooth talent growth, social & web2.0 information growth,  or Enterprise Course of Administration and Modeling ( However Bruce Silver within the  BPX group took first stab at BPMN fundamentals )

Certification by SAP

SAP training is beginning to present some certification and certainly one of them is that this starter certification for a BPXer:  Affiliate Certification by SAP

I need to make a couple of feedback right here in that the primary BPX affiliate certification from SAP Schooling solely covers 2 of the 6 vectos as earlier outlined by the BPX group.  This certification presently focuses closely solely on SAP instruments & integration points, as an alternative of additionally a obligatory generic strategy (e.g. like modeling fundamentals – ARIS is neither a generic instrument, nor does it cowl all requirements, neither is it the most typical instrument within the business – presently that is nonetheless Visio). This certification of reaching the affiliate BPX stage can be most likely not be sufficient to fulfill our clients. I believe you need to have the ability to add it to your talent set and curriculum, however I hope folks perceive that it doesn’t imply that you simply can simply turn into BPX affiliate in a couple of days – This is able to be each the demise of the fastidiously branded time period Enterprise Course of Skilled and wouldn’t assist clients within the subject. At present the curriculum appears very “geeky” oriented and we must always guarantee that we cowl BPX minded folks from either side: meaning fundamental enterprise courses for geeks, fundamental technical courses for fits. (we do cater to each audiences (demographics present) It’s a begin nonetheless.

In addition they have an entry stage certification for an affiliate enterprise architect and I counsel you take a look on the elements of the course ( Enterprise Architect Framework , and so forth )

What’s subsequent

Our group community BPX group is presently working diligently ( along with SAP training and different specialists from universities) to create a wiki the place we are going to present steering on a per function foundation on what programs to take ( as you may think about this isn’t a small job) We need to embrace steering for folks in roles comparable to enterprise analyst, software advisor, answer advisor, course of developer, IT supervisor, LOB supervisor, BPM supervisor and extra. We’re pondering to offer that in a wiki, in order that our BPX members can replace, present feedack, enhance and share extra. We solely began just lately, so I will share with you extra on timelines in a subsequent weblog. We additionally most likely need to state that to turn into a BPXer at an affiliate stage is de facto extra like a MBA/MS research than simply doing a ten day course.

Within the meantime I want to invite you so as to add/remark at your disposal beneath within the talkback and remark part in case you like… I additionally opened a discussion board space on the overall BPX discussion board.
