SAP usage in Canada- Ontario

0 Kudos

Hello everyone,

I am a CPA. I am new to SAP or any other high end software. My end goal is to work at any government organization- Municipalities, Transit, Metro.

I am wondering which software is used at such organization- SAP or Oracle?

My second question is what should be my starting point if I want to learn SAP and become SAP certified. My current employer won’t pay for anything.

I would really appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance.

Hi Pramit,

if you are CPA and want to learn SAP try to get hold of an account on a S4 system and try to post a journal entry there. at least, this is how i got started some 20 years ago. Oracle is now mostly Hyperion for accounting purposes and both co-exist happily in large organizations. Oh, and employers rarely pay for your continuing education unless they can have their clients pick up the tab.

Happy reconciliations,
