Hello Heather / Diego,
Heather I have the same question as Diego. I'm a junior in college and recently started an internship in an all SAP IT dept. Thus far I've been working mostly with BOBJ/WebI, SolMan, and a little ABAP. Here's the thing that I find frustrating: for someone like me who has never had any kind of experience with SAP it becomes daunting at times to search through the site. There has been numerous times where I will arrive at a page read the content and ask myself what did I just read. Although my company provided training when I first started (it has been only a couple of months) I find that it is not necessary for someone who is starting from ground zero. Are there any recommended readings or books that takes a student from basic/fundamentals concepts of SAP and then branch off to its different modules? Thanks for your help in advance.
There are several resources for you to explore. With the University Alliances Community (UAC), checkout the "UA Classroom" as well as the library for your discipline / area of interest. The classroom will have video clips and pre-recorded demos. Each library page has a "additional SAP content" type section that has white papers, FAQ's, success stories, ROI studiens and a variety of other content that could be used either as teaching aids or as tools to help you learn about SAP.
If you're evaluating careers within the SAP ecosystem, the UA Career Rersource Center and the Student Union are also good places to spend some time.
Other resources for you would be the content within the BPX and BusinessObjects communities. Both are a wealth of informatin depending on your area of interest. Lastly, check out the content found on the "elearning" and "events" links on the 2nd navigation line. Both may have pod casts / webinars / other types of remote learning that may be of interest.
