Career path for solution architect

0 Kudos

Hello All,

I have a 4 years of experience working as a Application developer. I had my initial training in SAP ABAP when I joined the my first company, but then I got my first project in SAP UI5 as frontend and Node JS as backend, I worked on that project for 2 years.

I went on to get certified in SAP fiori development.

Then I again got a project for SAP UI5 for one more year.

But due to lack of work in SAP ui5, I had to work on SAP low code platform with sap OData as backend.

Then I switched to different company, here as well i have been given SAP cloud API Management developer role.

So now I'm SAP Abap and SAP UI5 certified. I'm also planning for SAP cloud platform development certification.

I wanted to know if this frequent change of technical skills is good for my career or I should focus on anyone technical skill.

I always want to be a solution architect. What should be my approach to achieve my goal.

Change is good in my view; I think the ability to be cross functional is important.

Regarding becoming a solution architect, have you take the free Open SAP Course "An Enterprise Architect’s View on SAP Business Technology Platform" at

It is very good; I recommend taking it and see if this is the type of work that appeals to you.

Hi umeshmudaliar

I think you are set on right track. A full stack developer is some one who can a skilled person who can work on Back-end Technology, Front-end technology, Database, API and Middleware technologies. So if you pick up skills in all of these areas, you could be in high demand. I had a colleague in my team in SAP who came with a basic ABAP development skills in backend and is now well on the way to this course.

Thanks & Regards
