HANA for SAP Functional Consultants

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hi

I have rich experience of 9+ yrs in SAP MM/WM/SD/SRM (certified in these modules) (and over all 16+ yrs) all through implementations and rollouts.

Now I am feeling stagnated in my career; wanted to make it more techno-functional; SAP HANA is a buzz word.

   

Wanted to move into it after doing certification; but have the following queries:

  1. Will it be a right decision to move into it without any prior BI/BW experience.
  2. Will I get an entry into new projects of SAP HANA.
  3. Does BI/BW experience preferred over other SAP module/functional  experience; in which case it will be a difficult enviro to compete.

I have explored job portals and every one wants prior BI/ABAP/Tech experience.

I am worried will I be loosing by entering into HANA or shall I go further in my logistics area only for explorations.

The market I am working in is US and Australia.

Please suggest;

Thank you.

Kim

Hi Kimi,

HANA is related to database, there are basically two types of mode in HANA, one is called HANA developer who developes model and another is HANA technical who configure, install and monitor all these stuffs. When it  comes to learn HANA without having prior knowledge of BW/BI , yes this will gives you an advantage if you have prior knowledge of BW/BI , but its not mandatory for you because you have so rich experience in another modules, so i will suggest you to please see these threads which might help you at some extent.
