    Why are you looking to change to SAP since you are already a "consultant" with MANY projects? As a "newbie" with the current market conditions it will be VERY VERY challenging to get a consulting role (nor will you have any skills to be a SAP or SF consultant either) but if you are going to do anything it should be official certification through SAP/SF but know that you will competing with 7-8K others that have certification and looking for their first job/experience.

    • I do completely agree with you about the part of competing even far of SAP.

      Why would I want to change? Firstly, SAP is a global system with a high reputation even if SAP lacks some advantages "in HR field" for the MENA region, soon or later, I am quite sure that they will deal with their lack, Secondly I want to be part of a global system and after reviewing And studying other ERPs, I discovered that SAP suits me a lot as I actually worked in the company as a SAP FI consultant, but I always tend to human resources, so I think the experience already gained in implementing projects and human resources business will help me a lot in competition for a chance in SAP / SF especially since the system has not yet expanded significantly in our area

      at last i would like to thank you Mr. J. Pazahanick for your clarification

    I would suggest to do SAP FI certification, since you have experience in FI. As mentioned by Pazahanic, you may have to compete as a fresher in consultants market. I feel, there is also a good demand for FICO resource at middle east region.
