What is NetWeaver ???


I have been working in SAP as an ABAP/HR Developer for last 1.5 years. Very recently I started hearing the word NetWeaver in some consulting requirements. I send my resume over there but they say that you do not have any Netweaver experience so you cannot be considered.

Now, I have taken training of XI, Adobe Forms, Workflows, ABAP and Functional HR module.

My understanding is that NetWeaver is a suite like Microsoft Office (Word, Powerpoint, excel etc.) SAP has simply put together a few technologies together to form a suite, and it has Java touch in it too (Java Stack), nothing more serious.

My questions is, why recruiters say that I do not have netweaver exposure? Is it that they are just looking for the word "NetWeaver" in my resume (as I know XI, Adobe Forms and workflows) ?

I am not even sure if this is right forum to ask this question.

Thanks for your contributions.

    You could say the NetWeaver is a kind of a suite, but that's not all.

    Netweaver consist of:

    Web Application Server

    There are two Stacks ABAP and Java which can run independent of each other in an combination


    Business Intelligence - Data Warehouse


    Master Data Management - harmonize your Master data and more


    Enterprise Portal


    Exchange Infrastructure renamed to Process Integration

    You sure have NetWeaver skills, but that is mainly in the XI/PI area.

    Not in (?):

    - BI

    - MDM

    - EP

    - Installing / Upgrading / Adminstration

    If I where you, I would write that I have NetWeaver skills in the area of:

    - PI

    - ABAP

    - Adobe forms

    And, in addition:

    - HR programming

    - Workflow

    Or something like that.
