SAP Community - Where are you from?

SAP Community keeps growing and growing and I am super excited for this Welcome Corner as it gives the chance for not only new members but everyone to get to know one another and connect with each other.

As my colleague @Katherine_K gives an overall introduction to the Group and what you can expect from it in her blog post, I’d like to take the opportunity to start a discussion about the different locations represented in our global SAP Community. I am interested to read where you are located and where SAP Community is spread around the world.

I am from Germany and currently living in Wiesbaden, which is the capital of one of the sixteen German states located in the west. After years of studies and living in different places, my hometown has caught me again with its charm and the closeness to friends and family has won me over.

But now I am curious, where are you tuning in from?

Hello @bullishdude welcome to SAP Community. Where exactly are you from in the US? I am asking because there are several location groups in the US - you might want to subscribe to those, which are close to where you live. There are also physical meetings organized, which are a great opportunity to meet with other local community members. Check it out!

Hi, I m from Germany and my first encounter with SAP was in August 1996 ... what a journey, SAP 👍  👍  👍 

Hello @sdelamott wow, that's been a long time! Impressive! 

My journey started in May 2000, so I am close to the next "anniversary" 😉

Where are you from in Germany? I would like to encourage you to find the most closest location group for you here in SAP Community. For Europe, including Germany, search here. Don't forget to "join" the group if you found one closeby where you live! It's a great opportunity to connect with other local community members 🙂

Hello @sveabecker ,

Please @sdelamott on LinkedIn so we can celebrate your anniversary together online.

I relocated to Spain in 2018 for an SAP project and am now looking forward to the opening of a new SAP office in Pamplona, Navarra. 😊

Although it may not be within SAP's usual scope, but you never know.

Is there an SAP Community location group in Northern Spain?

Thank you!

 

Will do 🙂
Sor far there is the Barcelona in Spain. Check it out! 😊 

If you would be interested in getting your own group for the city where you live, please send an email to community@sap.com and we get in contact with you!

Thanks @Katherine_K and @StephanieMarley. Right now my focus is on planning for our S/4HANA conversion next year.

0 Kudos

@Dean_F I am curious is this learning journey is appealing to you? For example - Exploring SAP Cloud ERP | SAP Learning and Discovering RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition, premium plus Implementation and Adoption

They are beginner though so you may be more advanced. I'm curious on behalf of other community members with similar paths where you will get started to build your knowledge. Thanks.

@StephanieMarley No, we are currently on-premise only and plan to stay that way as long as we can (2040?). We will only be migrating parts of our environment to the cloud as we are forced to, probably starting with Integration Suite and CloudALM after we have fully transitioned to S/4HANA.

Dear all,

My name is Jorge Marazzo and I'm from São Paulo Brazil.

I decided to join the community to gather information so I can put in practice my plan to became a SAP Consultancy for FI and CO.

I tried to find where I can find courses/ material and the steps to move forward but I could not.

Does anyone knows where I could looking for it?

Thanks in advance!

** REMOVED BY MODERATION **

Olá, pessoal!

Meu nome é Jorge Marazzo e sou de São Paulo.

Decidi entrar para a comunidade para buscar informações a respeito de como posso me tornar um Consultor SAP para os módulos FI e CO.

Tentei encontrar cursos/ materiais e o passo a passo para a certificação mas não tive muito sucesso.

Por favor alguém sabe onde posso começar a trilhar o "caminho das pedras"?

Agradeço antecipadamente!  

** REMOVED BY MODERATION **

 

 

Welcome @JorgeMarazzo - I would recommend that you join our SAP Learning Groups, such as the Beginner Corner. The colleagues there might suggest which SAP Learning Journey would best suit your needs. For future reference, you could join our Career Corner group and get notified of positions that arise in the SAP ecosystem. Hope this helps for starters.

Thank you so much, Katherina!

I just started to explore SAP Learning Journey and the material looks like amazing.

Do you think it could be enough to prepare me to get a SAP certification that allows me to work as a consultant on FI and CO? Or should I need to achieve more knowledge (and, of course, experience).

Thanks in advance!

 

Please join the SAP Learning Groups and ask your questions about certification there. You may even find that someone has asked the question already. Best wishes for your journey!
