SAP has announced the opening of its first software training centre in East Africa, SAP Education Centre. The centre, opened in Kenya’s Nairobi, is run by Bluekey Software Solutions and ASYST Intelligence, both SAP resellers, serving the region.

The SAP Education Centre’s role is to train business managers and IT executives on the application of SAP business management software, said Malla Bhatt, MD Bluekey Software Solutions.

“East Africa is a key growth area for SAP and we jointly saw a huge gap in the training market. The Centre will also go a long way to enhance skills in Kenya as well as throughout East Africa, as we plan to extend the offering”, said Paul Morgan, managing director of ASYST Intelligence.

Bluekey and ASYST Intelligence are both South African SAP resellers and Certified Partners, with regional offices in Nairobi. Both companies said the move was justified by growing demand by companies seeking to achieve maximum ROI on software investments.

“There is great demand for training in Kenya, not only for large companies, but also for individuals determined to obtain as much training and certification as they can to improve their marketability”, added Bhatt.

The companies are resellers of SAP Business One, targeted at SMEs, and SAP BusinessObjects, addressing enterprises, respectively, in the African region. The centre will provide training for these specific solutions, given by trainers who use the products on a daily basis.

SAP is a German headquartered provider of business management software suited for small businesses to multinationals, with a presence in more than 120 countries.

ASYST Intelligence started its operations in East Africa with the launch of ASYST Intelligence East Africa in Kenya at the end of October 2009.

Bluekey Software Solutions, a South Africa-based technology company has operated from Kenya since 2002.
