Having a certified application will certainly boost your career. And if it is truly great, it will be very profitable and you might make millions. On the other hand if it’s rubbish and nobody buys it, you may just end up wasting north of $25k.

Thank you Mike.Can you also suggest if Web Dynpro and workflow applications are still in need??


Although UI5 and Fiori is all the rage, WDA and WF are still actively developed at customers and will have their place for a while yet. But you should really base your decision on more than the advice of a couple of people on the internet. We have no real idea what your application is or does, and you need to understand your market and who needs your application, not who needs WF and WDA.

Just in case you misunderstood: $25k is 25,000 US dollars. I made that figure up based on $15k for certification and another $10k for marketing and other upfront costs. You don’t just ‘get certified’, your product must comply with a bunch of standards. Did you have a look at the product certification pages? You also need to think about licensing models, support, etc. So you must look to make at least that just to break even on bringing product to market, which won’t even cover your development costs.
