Simple Finance Certification without SAP FI Certification


I am an SAP FI consultant with 4 years of experience. I don't have any certification on SAP FI module yet.

However, I am planning to learn the new Simple Finance and go for the certification in the same. Would it make sense to have this certification without having an SAP FI module certification?

I am asking this question as I understand that Simple Finance is modifying the FI module with HANA capability and adjustment of certain tables with views for getting real time data . The solution as such is built on top of the SAP FI functionality. Would this make SAP FI certification a necessary one to have before Simple Finance in terms of market needs ?

Appreciate your expert advice and guidance . Thank you

    Hi Ratheesh,

    To certain extent depends on what training/certification is offered in your country of residence.

    In general, you don't need a FI/CO certification for Simple Finance certification.

    But Yes if you've a decent understanding of current SAP FI/CO functionality and asset accounting.

    I'd suggest you to do this in the following steps:

    1) Get an overview of SAP HANA

    2) Brush your concepts on Asset accounting, Cash Management, IBP( Integrated Business Planning) incl. FSCM

    and then get trained/certified in SAP simple finance.

    The steps will help you in you making the most of SAP's training course.

    Refer to this curriculum:

    Curriculum | SAP Simple Finance

    Trust this helps.
