Help regarding choosing a module!!

Hello Everyone,

Greetings!!

Just a brief introduction about myself. I did my graduation in electronics and communication. I have 3 yrs experience in pre-sales(sales support) for Nokia network solution where i used to answer RFP's. Some of the major task where preparing Bill of Quantity, writing technical solution descriptions and answering to the requirements of the customer. Then i shifted to my family business which is steel fabrication. I used to handle sales and marketing of the company.

Now i want to enter into world of SAP. For that i consulted two of the authorized centers in NCR i.e Atos and JKT. I shared my CV with both of them and asked for their help to choose the best module which suits my experience. Atos suggested me to go for SAP CRM and JKT suggested me to go for SD module. Both gave me very strong reasons to go for the particular module. Now i am very confused which module to opt for.

I would request SAP experts to guide me here. I can also share my CV if required and also would like if i could have a word with anyone on phone.

Regards

P.S: I searched forum for similar problem but could not get a concrete solution.

    Hello Divyansh Ohri,

    SAP CRM and SAP SD are very much related with each other. SAP CRM deals with sales, marketing and service, SAP SD stands for sales and distribution. So both work with sales (quotations and orders, SAP CRM even with presales like activities, leads and opportunities ) and both make therefore sense for you if you have done pre-sales. SAP SD is part of the SAP main system SAP ECC and elder then SAP CRM. SAP CRM is a seperate system outside SAP ECC. Some training centers say they regard SAP SD as a prerequisite for SAP CRM which partly makes sense. It is also said that the competition with other software vendors is higher in SAP CRM then in SAP SD. I am a happy technical SAP CRM consultant for more than 14 years and I think that this is a rewarding topic but this could also be said about SAP SD. So it depends on you or if you get a direct entry level job in one of these fields.

    Best regards,

    • Divyansh,

      There is no set rule or standard replies for these questions. It depends upon many factors i.e. luck, your capability, etc. etc. Pick any of the two modules and persevere for 5 years (or more) to become an expert. After few years of working, you will understand and recognize what you want and don't want, from there you can "fine-tune" your career moves.

      SAP is about hard work for sometime...so that you are in command of your module and can provide solutions / value to the client.

    Hello Divyansh,

    You might want to take a look at FAQ: What is the best SAP module for me?  I'll steal a bit of thunder and give you the punch line. Don't focus on what you think is best for the short term job market. Focus on the topic from which you derive the most intellectual pleasure. Over the long run, if you are passionate about your subject area, you will study/work harder and eventually that will lead to better monetary rewards. If you are not passionate, eventually you will hate what you do and end up migrating to another career.

    Hope this helps!

    Best regards,

      --Tom
