SD as opposed to ABAP

Hi all:

Just wondering if someone could help me with the following: I currently looked into ABAP certification, with a view to pursuing the ABAP development route, however I have come across a problem in that a vast majority of companies within the North West don’t have a ABAP development team, and any such development work is either carried out by contractors of specialist consultancy firms. This therefore means that gaining applied practical experience will be almost impossible.

However having said that SAP SD in very popular with the manufacturing industry; thus I was contemplating such a role. Could someone possibly describe what role a SAP SD consultant would serve? And would it be a difficult transition to eventually move over to ABAP programming? Is SD a good area to start off in?

Many thanks

Oliver

    I do agree with you partially these days most of the ABAP work is done at offshore so chances of working as a ABAP are going down but still there are good opportunity for ABAP at on site. Coming to SD this is purly functional aspect of SAP which is related to Sales and Marketing functionality. You need to have good business understanding in sales area and working experience in any of Industry helps a lot.

    Hope this helps
