    Don't know why this question is placed here?

    Yes, it would be a good option to get into FICO by considering your background.

    After having 13+ years of experience, by this time you should have judged whether to go for a training or not. Long time back you should have jumped into SAP. Learn SAP out of passion, then definitely you will reach heights. If you learn SAP just for doing a job, then you will go nowhere. You should always push yourself for new heights.

    All the best.

    Dear Vijay,

    Do you have SAP experiance?

    If no, please do not enter in this field after spending 13 golden years on other fields. you will be treated as fresher, would you like that?.

    Domain experiance is not considered when you come to the SAP fields, though you may get some competitive advange if other person is also fresher in SAP and having less domain experiance than you.

    Even one or two year experiance guy will be given preference over you. Would you like that?

    You should not go for this at this stage.

    and if you have sap experiece then you can do the same and this will give advantage also.

    Best Regards

    Ruksana Khan.

      Vijay's current career, Financials, is a superset of SAP FI. SAP is just the tool. The concepts of how to properly run the business from a financial perspective doesn't change if the company is running SAP or not running SAP. Vijay's previous FI experience is directly relevant. Yes, he'll have to take a step back on the career ladder at least temporarily, but after a few years, he will probably be a much stronger consultant.

      Will Vijay be able to get an SAP consulting job directly after receiving certification? Probably not.(Very unlikely, actually.) This is why I recommended that he take a slightly slower approach by finding an SAP FI end user job and trying to migrate into the support group. He can use the FI experience he has to slowly move into the job he may eventually want. I've actually found that most companies do provide training for employees transferring into a related area, but every company is different.

      Best regards,
