Dear Friends,
I am an ABAP programmer with 13 yrs experience in SAP Development. Also i worked in SAP CRM development.
I learnt SAP HANA modelling and development but for me it seems to be more favorable for SAP BI guys that's more analytical.

Do i need to learn S/4 HANA? if yes, What is the approach for me to start?

What role do ABAP guys play in S/4 HANA?

My experience is more into IS Utilities & little into SD, MM FI.

Please guide me.

Thanks

Check out the openSAP courses, as they provide numerous (S/4)HANA courses these days (Use Cases, Implementation, Deep Dive, ABAP Development, ...).
Check the SAP Learning Hub for additional resources & training / certification.
Furthermore, it's not difficult to find some documentation on (the state of) IS-U module (Roadmap documents) for SAP ... To my knowledge, the IS-U isn't fully integrated (a 'full product') yet in S/4, but I hope to see some more progress on that (just like you, I imagine).

Personally, I feel Utilities are looking heavily into IoT, so your current IS-U knowledge, combined with IoT and future SAP technology (HANA, OData, UI5) could be beneficial to your career / interests.

Hope this helps ...

Hey Ricky,

I'm pretty sure ABAP will stay very relevant with S/4HANA.
[Edit: I'm actually doning ABAP development on S/4HANA right now].

If you have not done so yet, familiarize yourself with (ABAP-)CDS-Views, as they do play a important role.

Hope this helps a litte.

Joachim

Good to hear about ABAP on S/4 HANA.

How do I start with it Joachim?

I'd recomment to just take a development you did on ECC and try to re-implement it in a S/4HANA system!
