Getting into SAP Basis Administration

Hi,

I am interested in getting into SAP BASIS Administration. I am currently working as a Windows System Administrator and have been in the IT industry for over 10yrs and looking for a change somewhat...i have very little programming experience, just some scripting here and there. How difficult is it to get into this area? I live in the U.S. Any companies willing to hire someone for entry level BASIS position or mentor? Thanks.

    Hi Zylan

    We're going through almost the same phase. But the only difference is that I have already started SAP Basis. It's an amazing course and you'll like it as you have prior IT experience. Look up for online training sessions because that is what I'm currently doing. It's cheaper that others and give you the (almost) complete knowledge of the course you applied for. But be careful!!! There are a lot of trainers out there. And when I say a lot I mean A LOT. Take a few demo classes before you join one.

    But if money is no object and you want quality education then follow Mr. Ravi's advice. Locate a SAP partner in your state and go for it.

    All the best!! 😊

    Hi Zylan,

    We welcome the thought of moving to SAP World..

    SAP BASIS administration does not demand for any programming experience, its more of a technological area focused on Server management, database management etc. More details can be provided by our BASIS experts in this forum..

    To get in to SAP, either you have to attend SAP training from recognized institutes or get experienced in a company where SAP is used.

    Since you are completely new to this area, it is always recommended to attend the training.

    Regards,

    Ravi

    Hi Zylan,

    Try to get SAP Netweaver Basis Administration certification or SAP HANA Administration certification. Try to connect HR or consulting companies through linkedin who normally post ad in linkedin share. Also, just register in Dice and other US job portals who can help you to get into SAP Netweaver Basis Administrator.

    Regards
