Require good suggestion to choose SAP Module - From ABAP to SAP BI/BO or SAP APO?


Hi All,

First of all I would like to introduce myself to you. I am Varun Siddharth. I have 3.3 years of working experience in SAP. I worked for a manufacturing industry which implemented SAP for their business. 3 years back I had no idea about SAP and it was in the Implementation phase when I joined the organization. I had been trained by the senior SAP consultants in SAP MM, SAP PP, SAP QM, SAP PS etc. I mean not at the configuration end but what the End user has to do. With this training and experience, I learned what exactly happens in SAP ERP among various functional modules. As I started gaining experience, I was very much comfortable with SAP and started getting a chance to work on the configuration front of the above mentioned modules as per the rise of various requirements.

Later on, as days passed by With the suggestion of a senior consultant, I learned SAP ABAP and Webdynpro ABAP. But hardly got a opportunity to work on all the key areas of ABAP as the requirements were very only pertaining to few key areas. So, I dint get much exposure to the core technical aspects of ABAP. Now I got an opportunity in an IT company as an SAP Developer-ABAP. To be frank, I am more comfortable functionally rather than technical. As I had manufacturing domain experience. I gained knowledge on the core business scenarios. There is a saying like " I am jack of few modules but not king of one". With my own interest, I am planning to learn SAP BI with BO.

Based on my experience and exposure to SAP I have. Please guide me as to which SAP module I need to build up a good career in SAP. I am basically interested in modules like SAP BI/BO where my ABAP skills can be used or how would SAP APO drive my SAP career. Is it best for me?

If I choose SAP BI with BO to learn at this stage i.e; in 2012. Will I end up without much growth for a long run as I hear a lot of SAP HANA over SAP BI.

Please give a nice suggestion. So, that I can be clear on my SAP career. Right now, I am totally confused. Your very much appreciated if you can suggest me some other modules other than what I have mentioned.

Thanks in advance for your valuable inputs.

Best Regards,

Varun Siddharth
