My role covers order creation, production entry and execution of every step until the delivery of materials, pulling of the invoices, credit / debit memo creations whenever required – all using CRM and ECP in SAP. It almost covers END USER role in my SAP career.

    I wrote a blog few years ago on the subject, providing a self development plan to be a Consultant. I'll recommend you to read it, in addition to the advices provided in the career space by many others, to have an understanding of what it takes to be a Consultant. The link is provided below:

    Are Business Knowledge, Technical Abilities AND Soft Skills necessary ingredients to be a SAP Consultant?

    Even though it's an old entry, I think it can still help.

    The ground reality is end users in SAP are limited to certain transaction codes and predominantly they operate with customized transactions and reports specific to your business process. Having said that, I am not sure, how far, you are comfortable with standard SD / MM process and most importantly, the basic configuration if not the entire configuration. To gain that configuration knowledge, you need to keep practicing daily for minimum 2 hours in your system. If you search in Google for configuration guide, lot of documentations are available. Take the inputs from there and sincerely practice in system. This will give you a chance to become a functional consultant after some years if not immediately.

    • G Lakshmipathi sir thanks a lot for your immediate advice.

      I have very keen interest to build my future career in SAP. Need your kind guidance, which module should I choose considering my current work profile for future benefit. I came to know it is quite expensive and time taking to get any certification for any module. I am willing to switch to any other organisation in any of SAP user roles, side by side I will engage myself to compete the certification for consultant as early as I can. In addition, I want to know the job profiles (different user roles) in the hierarchy until someone becomes a consultant. I hope you may understand my query and guide me the right path, will be thankful to you always.

    Start documenting the business processes. For example

    - For what processes orders are created?

    - For what processes credit note is created?

    - For what department, is a particular report output taken?

    Hi Sudipto Mukherjee

    As you have interest and experience in Sales function, it’ll be easier for you to learn if you choose the SAP Products/Applications which support such processes. Earlier it was SD, now it’s CRM, and the prediction is of Hybris. If you look at the screenshot shared by you, both the CRM and Hybris are mentioned within Applications and Cloud respectively. You can choose either of them and start developing yourself with the learning and building your career accordingly.

    Your earlier knowledge and qualifications may also help you in learning another interesting and valued subject i.e. Data Science. Once you have finished the Hybris course, I’ll recommend you to also attend Getting Started with Data Science. I found the concepts taught in this course related with predicting customer’s behavior which you’ll learn within Hybris course.
