What's it like to be a SAP Consultant?

SAP Consultants specialise in data processing, which has two areas—functional and technical. Technical SAP Consultants focus on network administration, and software programming and development. Functional SAP consultants have a finance background, enabling them to configure systems to meet business needs. Some SAP Consultants can do both technical and functional work. They may work as employees or independent consultants.

After assessing a client’s needs, SAP Consultants will use the SAP system to create solutions. They document the system’s development and integration with an organisation’s current IT (information technology) infrastructure, so that other IT consultants and staff members can troubleshoot future issues. SAP Consultants also train personnel on the proper use of the SAP system. During the early stages of implementation, these consultants are on standby to collect feedback from end-users, spot and resolve problems, and recommend ways to optimise performance.

How to become a SAP Consultant

SEEK Learning
