    Hi Dikshit,

    Looking at your background I would not suggest you to opt for SAP CRM as you knowledge would not be used in this module. These are some of the modules you can think of:

    1. SAP SCM
    2. SAP APO : for Supply chain planning and optimization.
    3. SAP SD
    4. SAP FSCM , if you have interest in finance also. this module covers financial part of supply chain management.

    You can explore SAP website to know more about these modules and how these can fit in to your career profile.

    Then you can take a good decision.

    Hope I have been able to address your question.

    Regards,

    Sunil Kumar

      Hi Sunil

      The more i research on which module to pursue the more confused i get. What i hear from people is that coding is not something you ll continue doing after probably 5 yrs. So its better to take a certification as a functional by choosing a module of interest. I personally feel i can contribute more as a functional and considering my role in the organisation i currently work, i can even get relevant experience as a functional.

      So my question is, firstly, is there any truth in the fact about no coding after 5 yrs.

      secondly, consider i want to get certified as a functional, which module do i choose and how??

      Looking forward to hearing from you

      Thanks

    I would recommend you to opt for MM module since you already have domain knowledge in that.

    Hi Dikshit,

    Currently with your procurement experience you can go for MM and WM modules.

    For future prospect you can look forward to gain a knowledge in SAP APO SNP module, which will be the extension of MM module.

    For WM you can gain a knowledge in EWM module, which is the advanced version of WM.

    Hope this helps.

    Your profile is best suited for MM module. You can club MM with SCM or SRM area as you move forward in your career.

    SAP SRM would be one area where you can leverage your domain (procurement) experience. There are interesting stuff in that space including Contract LifeCycle Management (CLM) and Ariba integration.

    Hi Dikshit,

    Go for SAP CRM. Has lot of demand in the market. SAP SRM is also ok but opportunities would be less as compared to CRM.

    Have a look at SAP CRM Sales/marketing/service.

    All the best for your career !!
