SAP skills have become an indispensable factor - globally, and in all industries. Understanding SAP software and the ability to work with it is vital in many areas of the job market. For many positions today such skills are mandatory. When this is not the case, applicants can still be sure to enhance their chances to be more desirable for a position when they can prove that they already have certain SAP skills.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is the standard software all businesses use to run their business processes, and SAP ERP is the most prevalent product in the world.
SAP is used by logistic companies, the telecommunication sector, automotive companies, banks and the retail sector - public and private sector. No matter which area and position you prefer, SAP skills will inevitably be required. As a result, having at least an understanding of SAP is a great asset. And additional specialisation in certain SAP areas such can help advance your career.
SAP is a very large ERP system and divided in many specific modules or application areas. These modules and applications are equally substantial in size and have different capabilities. Specific module knowledge is therefore essential.
The first step in determining whether you should switch to ERP, or start an IT career with ERP, is to understand which area of ERP suits you best. For example, if you come from an accounting background, it might be better if you strive to become a finance functional consultant. If you have extensive experience with documentation in a functional area or with super-users in another enterprise, then the role of an ERP functional consultant may be your best fit. Or perhaps you want to be a Super User? Or have specialist process knowledge.
Of course, one of the best ways to break into ERP is to have certification. And most people would prefer to have consultant certification. But with the
heavy costs involved with SAP consultant certification, this is not always possible. But certification of attendance is also offered for process courses, individual courses and role-based courses, so it's best to start with what is affordable.
