Most of my readers know that I don’t think much of the various Crystal Reports certifications that have been offered over the years. But for those of you find these valuable, you should know that SAP is changing the Business Objects certification exams to align them with the SAP exams. You can read more about it on this BLOG post by Kenneth Schieffer.
The summary is that there will be only one 3-hour exam for each product line (Crystal Reports, BO Enterprise and Web Intelligence). Passing the exam now makes you an “SAP Certified Application Associate. And if you are only partially through the current exam process you have until April to complete the exam under the old scheme. Otherwise you have to start over with the new scheme.
Thanks to Gordon Portanier of Crystalize in Canada for pointing this article out to me.
