I am having a experience in SAP ABAP for almost 2 years now and I dont want to restrict myself to ABAP. I would like to be a technofunctional, so which certification would be the best to have a bright career in SAP.

None. You need actual real life experience, not certifications.

Hi Om,

It also depend on which module you have closely worked on, also in which module you are having interest.

If you started out in ABAP, so SAPUI5 and the whole HANA shenanigans is the path to go in the immediate future, in my opinion.

Agreed. The technical side of SAP is exploding right now. However knowing the functional area at least a little helps. I don't think you would need a certificate. Just start learning it. Pick an area you usually work in and start from there.

I would advise opening a book first. Then work overtime on your job to understand the functional area. Certificates mean very little in the US. Perhaps it is different in other countries.

Really I picked up my functional knowledge while writing code. I had to understand how things worked together. Remember it is not a functional area anymore it is more of a process that companies are looking for. If you silo yourself in one functional area - that's a bad idea. You have to understand the basics in the other areas. No one can understand it all. Pick your functional area and understand the feeds into and out of it. (Basics)

Once you feel good about your skills use them. Work with your company to get you on a small project. If you are working 2 years in ABAP you must be working somewhere. Usually if you take the initiative - they will help you get started. It is to their advantage.

The future is bright if you enjoy what you do and do it well.
