    SAP is all about mapping of business processes and automating them through ABAP.The mapping of business processes to SAP is done by functional consultants and the coding required to do so is done by technical consultant.An experienced technical consultant who have implemented multiple projects can automatically understand the business scenarios map them to SAP and do the programming required for that.Such a guy will be a techno-functional consultant who knows the best of both the worlds.Such a guy will be a great asset to any organization.

    Hi mamatha,

    According to my personal opinion,

    1. The only advantage is of personal satisfaction.

    2. Salary wise nobody will get extra money for

    having such extra knowledge.

    (Bcos, a person is appointed in a company

    for handling his technical work of abap,

    he won't be RESPONSIBLE for customization

    and other things of functional area ;

    that responsibility will be of some other

    functional consultant)

    3. Other minor advantage is that abap development

    quality and time gets efficient if we know

    a little about the functional side also.

    regards,

    amit m.

    • In my experience, I am the only technical developer of my shop and I get no functional specs when writing programs. So really I am forced to understand the business or functional side as it will help me in knowing how to code a report or transactional program. I assume that there are a lot of developers like me out there, how don't have a choice. 😊
