Hi All,

Need some guidance on from you all..

I am a software developer working on Java,J2ee since 3 years.
I am planning to shift to SAP purely for two reasons :
a) More long-term onsite exposure
b) More of a functional role than a technical role
I am planning to do my MBA in 3 years from now and I am interested in making the transition to a functional role or a techno-functional role from a purely technical role.

So keeping my motives in mind, what would be a better option for me?
1. moving to SAP Netweaver XI
2. moving to SAP Netweaver Enterprise Portal
3. learning ABAP and moving into core modules like FICO etc..


Thanks in advance for any inputs.

What kind of software did you develop? What did it do?

As you said that yiou need more functional role than technical role, the SAP modules like Netweaver XI and Netweaver Enterprise portal are related to technical not functional. So better try other core modules.

Thanks,
Deepak.

if you have been developing B2B, procurement and supply chain solutions using Java technologies then the transitions into SAP will probably be smoother because some of the business flow knowledges are closely related

Well, As you said one of the reason you want to situ over to SAP is
LONG-TERM ONSITE exposure.

You may need to look at the scope of SAP where you want to migrate.

Good Luck.
