greetings for the day.
this is Prashant.I have around 3 years of wrking exp in General ABAP....for certification Siemen's HR people suggested me to go for XI(exchange Infrastructure) certifaication rather than General ABAP.....so i have no idea about scope and benifits of SAP XI .plz suggest me if ON-LINE training in SAP XI would be good choice for me or not..bcoz i have planned to do this certification by taking education/personal loan....so i thought to take suggestions from you b4 taking a huge loan.
need your valuable suggestions.
Certification is only an added advantage to ur career not a need. I wud suggest if u r workin in any company and have 3 yrs exp in ABAP then give certi through SAP Tech Ed as the price will be less around 12k whereas it will b more in institutes.
XI is basically migration within SAP. Since there are a big bunch of ABAP ppl Siemens might have asked you for XI certi. To be more clear about XI follow this link:

But i would rather suggest that instead of taking loan for mere certification get some hands on exp in any company and apply thru SAP Teched for certification.
