SAP Business ByDesign Introductory Course
Project status: finished

SAP Business ByDesign is a fully integrated Software-as-a-Service-ERP-solution that especially addresses small and medium-sized enterprises. As one of the first institutions in the world, the UCC Magdeburg has been involved in the pilot project “SAP Business ByDesign@ University Alliances” of the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg and the SAP AG since 2009.

During the pilot phase, different product releases – so-called featurepacks – were successfully tested and delivered to internationally adopting university lecturers in China, USA, Switzerland, Canada, France and Germany by the UCC in Magdeburg. During the pilot phase, the UCC Magdeburg developed a full set of training material following the proven concept of the UCC. This material was presented in August 2011 and February 2012 at the UCC Magdeburg in the form of professional training courses for lecturers of the UA-program.

Since the UCC Magdeburg has developed an official certification, the newly gained knowledge of the training courses can be authenticated by SAP. The development of high-quality material in the context of the pilot project was supported by the realization of feedback sessions with the participation of the SAP Executive Board and the ByD product management.

The aim is to include SAP Business ByDesign into the range of products of the UCC Magdeburg and to offer it to university lecturers in the EMEA region after the successful conclusion of the pilot phase.
