This is Azeemuddin, SAP SD consultant with over 5 years of experience.

I am conceptually very clear about SAP MM, SAP PP, SAP LE, SAP WM, SAP GTS, SAP TM but did not get Opportunity to work on those SAP Modules.

Right now I am in SAP L2 Support.

But wants to move to SAP L3 Support.

I am not interested in Leadership Roles.

I want to become a SAP SD Solution Architect.

I am also interested in Role as a Business Analyst.

Please guide me.

It is not clear, how far, you are strong in SD configuration as of now. Considering you have 5 years of experience, I presume, you can able to handle any standard process independently, if not the complex one.

Since you set a goal to yourself to become as a Solution Architect, as a functional consultant, first and foremost important thing is that you need to understand the difference between ECC and S/4 Hana, what additional functionalities are added to SD and what tcodes are become obsolete in S/4 Hana.

The next would be to start learning all SD scenarios and this should be your daily activity.

When you do this exercise on a daily basis, start with any standard SD functionality where you try to play with changing the master data for the same scenario. Definitely, you will have some issues during your testing. Make a note of that, try to solve on your own (do not immediately search in Google) and if you are not able to solve on your own, then, you can take the help of Google / SCN.
Next, you have to try with changing the configuration of item categories and schedule line categories. Then, try with copy control configurations. Once you are able to solve the issues during the above practice session, you can try with pricing which would be your last try.

For all these, first you have to identify different Business scenarios like

  • Quotation is on Sold-To A but Sale Order should be on Sold-To B - How do you achieve with standard configuration ?
  • Multiple Open Sale Orders created two months back - tax percent changed - How you update these in one stretch ?
  • Without entering material code in SO, how can you fetch that ? - etc.,


Like this, you can list out in thousands and your mindset should be in such a way that you spend time daily minimum 2 - 3 hours just for learning. If you are able to spend more than that, should be fine.

If you dedicatedly do this, you can become a Solution Architect and able to provide standard solution to any critical Business Process
