SAP To Gun Down Unauthorized Training Institutes

by CXOtoday Staff    Jul 23, 2004

SAP India is intensifying its drive against unauthorized institutes that claim to impart training on SAP technologies. The company has decided to take severe legal action against unauthorized institutes.

Demonstrating its drive, the company informed that the Central Crime Branch Police of Bangalore raided the offices of United Systems India Pvt. Ltd. (USIPL), which offered unauthorized training using unlicensed SAP software.

Alan Sedghi, president, SAP Indian subcontinent said, “SAP strives to ensure the protection of its own intellectual property and that of its partners in all markets. We are pleased that the Indian government has put in place measures that allow software companies to ensure that their rights to such a valuable asset are properly safeguarded.”

“Illegal training centres such as the one that was raided last week must effectively be stopped from using stolen materials and conducting training that may not meet the standards set by SAP and its partners and thus invalidates the investment that students are making to acquire SAP knowledge,” added Sedghi.

SAP has set up a community of education partners around India who offer well-designed and accessible training to the market. SAP’s training partners in India are - Siemens Information Systems Limited and Genovte Solutions (I) Pvt. Ltd. SAP training centres are located across India in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Trivandrum.
