    Hi SunnyB

    SAP Business one is an intergrated solution with all domains in one application. Things like purchasing, materials, finance, crystal reports etc comes into one single application called SAP Business One. Historically SAP Business One developmed by a software firm based in Israel and SAP AG acquired the company and renamed it like SAP Business One. My suggestion would be it is a good application suitable for small and medium type businesses where business processes are not complicated. However, if you want to make career in one specific domain listed below, you need to look into SAP's ERP modules:

    1.Materials Management

    2.Financials(Financial Accounting)

    3.Controlling(Cost & Management Accounting)

    4. BI(Business Intelligence is a reporting tool and data mining tool)

    5. HR

    6. Basis(Technical module where installation and authorisation including system security etc are taken care of)

    7. Travel Management(Application for employee/non-employee expense claims)

    8. ABAP(Advanced Business Appln.Programming owned by SAP AG)

    9. Project Systems

    10. Others that I donno at this stage but exists.

    My suggestion would be to go for anything as per your interest and not purely financial. Of course you'll be rewarded good with any of the above modules but learn based on your interest.

    Good luck!
