Hi Saptarshi,

You have mentioned that you have been working in Helpdesk/IT Admin, so I believe you were doing troubleshooting for tickets raised by users.

There are technical and functional modules in SAP, take a look at them and see which one you like and find matching with your experience. SAP Basis is a technical module which involves installing/updating/troubleshooting the SAP software system.

There are modules like BI/BO which are for reporting needs and require knowledge of DBMS, you might find it interesting if you have some experience/knowledge of SQL and like to work in Business Intelligence domain.

Try to find out from your friend circle/colleagues/contacts about the module which is currently in demand by recruiters/companies as it will help you in making a good choice.

P.S. Any non SAP experience will not be counted towards experience on any module of SAP but may compliment learning any module.
