    The demand for SAP is ever-growing in the business world, with it being the world’s leading ERP software used in more than 147 nationalities, with 30000 installations and more than 1000 SAP partners. In that scenario, the demand for SAP professionals is higher than ever and it is expected to increase even more in days to come.

    Being an SAP consultant promises a bright future as it offers several opportunities for growth and is quite lucrative. A career in SAP depends on the skills a person has. Broad skills are need of the hour and one of the best ways to acquire these is through training on business processes. Business process-based training is more relevant in today’s market as opposed to normative module-based training. Keep reading! 

    The popularity of SAP increased and as more and more companies started implementation, support, enhancement and upgradation, the demand for trained SAP personnel grew. Thus many training programs that upskill a person in SAP software came into the picture.

    The traditional setup was such that an individual should be skilled in an SAP module so as to successfully implement a business segment. So an ‘SAP module’, such as SAP MM, SAP FICO, SAP PP, etc., is essentially a technology usage. 

    As SAP implementation methodology has moved from being module-driven to process-driven, need arose such that a consultant is expected to possess knowledge of the end-to-end processes rather than focus on a single aspect of the business. In a process-driven market, knowledge of a single module is not going to be sufficient, however proficient the module-based skills are. 

    Companies these days are favoring candidates who possess the knowledge of business processes rather than one aspect of the business. For instance, Procure to Pay process requires knowledge of SAP MM, SAP SRM, SAP FICO, and SAP AP domains. It is more feasible if one person can cover all the relevant modules involved in the business process.

    SAP implementation has moved to an agile methodology. Hence companies are preferring consultants who possess business process knowledge in addition to module expertise for their implementations. 

    Hence getting trained this way gives one an edge over the others making SAP aspirants suitable for various roles. To outline a few advantages of learning process-driven SAP courses,

    1) The number of learning curves can be reduced.
    2) Restricts the need to depend on others to get the job done.
    3) Having an overall view of the business process leads to better understanding. 
    4) Enhances the efficiency of development. 
    5) Enables better performance of the job and time-based completion. 
    6) A more compact, cohesive team for the implementation. 

    Hence to stay on par with the latest demands of the market and ensure a great growth for your career in the age of development, focus on process-based SAP training.
