Egypt to open region's first SAP Academy
SAP Academy to train 500, mostly government employees, on SAP solutions as part of ERP partnership agreement
Egypt will soon inaugurate the region's first SAP Academy, as part of a program between SAP and the Egyptian Government to build skills in the country and to support SAP's role as strategic ERP partner for the government.
The SAP Academy, located in Cairo's Smart Village, will provide training for 500 students, mainly existing government employees.
The training program will build on the agreement between SAP and the government, which was announced in November 2007. The agreement included a $10 million deal to deploy SAP to the Egyptian National Postal Organization (ENPO).
Léo Apotheker, deputy CEO, SAP AG said: "The SAP Academy in Cairo's Smart Village will play a crucial role in driving Egypt's modernization efforts, and we intend to partner with Egypt every step of the way."
