I am trying to build a profile inorder to hire an XI implementation consultant.
I need your help here. what would you suggest?
does he need any SAP background ? ABAP? Java?
A large amount of points is waiting to give a way to anyone who can help
Thanks in advance,
When you are hiring an XI consultant, it will be a big big plus if the concerned person has SAP background, not necessarily at an expert level. He should have basic knowledge on IDocs, RFC, ABAP.
But the most important job will be in writing the mapping, so the person should have a very good understanding of XML. As everything within XI is XML based. He should have good knowledge in XSLT and Java.
I am sure ABAP and Java knowledge would be a great help for SAP XI consultant, what you should also look at XI consultant would be to have some good knowledge on Integration broker and also EAI as a whole. Best bet woudl be to have a profile who have good knowledge on EAI tools,Java having worked on SAP integration.
I think you should look for somebody who has worked excessively in the SAP EDI development and has exposure to java and JCO(Java connection object). I think people with both ABAP and java background and who have worked with the java and ABAP integration will be a good XI Consultant
