I am now SAP Certified Associate Enterprise Architect!

Yesterday I appeared for SAP Certification test for Associate Enterprise Architect and could pass it! The test covered topics such as SAP NetWeaver stack, SAP EAF and Enterprise SOA. There were 80 multiple-choice questions for 3 hours. I could complete the test in half the time. Many questions were tricky and needed careful reading. I found some questions where recommendation was asked for a given scenario while rest of them were more details-oriented.

It's a good feeling to know that I am now SAP Certified Associate Enterprise Architect!

Yawar said...

Congrats Shrikant.

Can you give me an insight on which SAP certification is the highly in demand? My background in development and business applications. I am working in a Bank as a Senior Systems Analyst. I think Enterprise Architect Certification suites me there might be other certifications which are better and high in demand.

My main reason to come towards SAP is to get a high in demand certification. Your advise will be highly appreciated.

Hello Experts,

I am looking forward for an Enterprise Architect certification.
Please guide me for the below 3 certifications & which one is suitable and recommended for my work profile.
And if possible also let me know about what are the prerequisites for each of these certifications in terms of work experience as well as a rough idea on the total cost of the certification.

1. TOGAF Certified Enterprise Architect.
2. SAP Certified Associate Enterprise Architect.
3. expand »SAP Certified Associate Technology Architect.

I am currently working on SAP Enterprise Portal technology platform having total 4.5 years of work experience with skills mentioned below.
SAP Enterprise Portal (EP), Content Integration of various Business Packages on EP like ESS-MSS, SRM, BW. SAP Netweaver Composition Environment (CE) for enabling SOA empowered architecture built using EJB 3.0 & Web Service concepts, WebDynpro-Java, Netweaver Development Infrastructure (NWDI), SAP NetWeaver BPM/BRM, SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0

Also let me know if there are entrance scenarios that are required for the selection process in TOGAF?

As far as I have read about the SAP Enterprise Architecture Framework, it has been derived from Caogemini’s IAF & TOGAF.

Capgemini's Integrated Architecture Framework (IAF) was developed during the 1990s and its form and structures are heavily influenced by Zachman.

Capgemini EA experience and IAF, along with TOGAF were used to develop SAP Enterprise Architecture Framework (EAF).
SAP EAF is vendor-independent, but it does contain SAP Specific mappings.

The very unique idea behind the development SAP EAF was to fill in the Gap that TOGAF could not provide, i.e. to support Packages & Packaged services implementation.

So, I just wanted to understand that, is it necessary or a good way to start with the True and original frameworks like TOGAF and then pursue the Extended and evolved frameworks like SAP EAF.
What is an absolute way of achieving and becoming a fine architect after all?

SAP EAF claims that it is not technology specific as i have already mentioned in my earlier replies.

So, is it really worth taking such certification rather than going for TOGAF?
