As the world's leading provider of business software, SAP delivers products and services that help accelerate business innovation. Today, customers in more than 120 countries run SAP applications – from small to mid-size companies up to suite offerings for global organisations.
SAP, an IT company like Microsoft, is one of the biggest and best-paid areas of IT that you can specialise in. It focuses on developing business software in areas such as systems integration, eBusiness and supply chain solutions. As a SAP expert, you could work in a number of roles – but you will only advise customers about, and install, SAP software. Roles include SAP consultant jobs, project manager jobs, analyst jobs, technician jobs or trainer jobs - the same roles as in the wider IT environment but only focusing on one technology.
With a lot of competition for job vacancies, you will of course be expected to be qualified in SAP technologies. SAP runs a huge range of training courses covering introductions to technical business configuration.You can choose the courses that suit your area of expertise and career ambitions - for example financial software installations, customer management or general business applications.
As well as systems maintenance and development, SAP specialists will also be heavily involved in managing both their team and the relationship with clients and customers. This means that as well as possessing specialised technical abilities, SAP professionals need wide-ranging communication skills to deal with a variety of people quickly and efficiently.
