Dear Mr. Prasad

You can go for SAP. But you should have similar domain knowledge. Are you a Computer engineer or any other technical degree you are holding?

I would suggest before going for SAP BI certification gain experience first then you can go for PG degree then SAP BI. Atleast 2 years of experience you should have in same domain. For example. If i want to do SAP MM then i should have some domain knowledge about Materials Management, like worked as a Purchase Executive or Manager.

Thank you.

Swanand.

Hi Phani,

Thank you for vulnerable suggestion.As of now i am not good in Data concepts and Relational databases  surely i will get an idea about RDBMS and Data warehousing concepts before going to know about SAP BI.

Hello,

Yes, you can learn SAP BI, its no rocket science. Start reading about SAP here at SDN or read pdfs/documents on BI. I would recommend if possible do a course in BW.

SAP is so vast that a lifetime is less to cover everything, so dont get disheartened if you find yourself lost at times. It will eventually come.

Prior knowledge of Database management will be very helpful. As suggested above read RDBMS thoroughly. I had to do the same, only this time seriously.
