A worldwide shortage of SAP related skills threaten s the viability of many Enterprise Systems implemen tations limits the adoption of Enterprise Systems in developing countr ies. SAP, the leading Enterprise Systems vendor, h as established its University Alliance Program (UAP) to help address t hese skill shortages. The SAP UAP provides the opp ortunity for universities to access SAP solutions and associated curriculum, to facilitate teaching, at a reduced c ost. This paper proposes that the real cost for universities, to access SAP solutions, varies from country to country presentin g a possible barrier for developing countries. A number of alternative opti ons are presented to lessen this barrier. -- AMCIS (Americas Conference of Information Systems) 2010 proceedings, paper 155
