The EGA hosted the university graduates for the three-month training program which included certification in SAP Customer Relationship Management (CRM) along with SAP Business Process Integration and SAP Project Management. Following successful completion of the program, the graduates joined EGA on an internship as SAP CRM Consultants to help them develop their skills further and eventually join the EGA team as permanent employees. The talents are currently supporting the SAP CRM and Case Management enhancement efforts in Civil Courts and Municipality Departments.
Following the graduation of the first intake, EGA has announced that it will host a second track of of the YPP, this time with a focus on SAP Human Capital Management (HCM), SAP Business Process Integration (BPI), SAP Analytics as well as SAP HANA.
The certification topics SAP HCM, SAP BPI as well as SAP HANA were chosen in order to support the implementation of the SAP HCM project, a highly important and strategic IT project delivered by EGA in collaboration with Ras Al Khaimah HR Department. The project is planned to be implemented through 16 local departments in January 2016,
The aim of SAP's Young Professional Program is to enable unemployed UAE national university graduates to gain SAP Associate Level Certifications that ultimately will support them to develop their career within the technology sector. The program provides government as well as private sector companies well shaped talents with essential business, technology, and leadership skills.
