Job Profile: SAP Consulting

As an SAP consultant, you have in-depth knowledge of various branches, IT applications and the latest technology. Moreover, you know how to use those purposefully for your customer or employer. You will develop systems, applications and services that help businesses streamline their business processes and increase their work efficiency. As an SAP consultant, you analyze existing processes, revise and optimize them. You will also simplify the service and lifecycle of SAP software products used in your customer’s/employer’s company.

SAP Customizing and Implementation:

A keyword in the context of SAP consulting is customizing. In this context, "customizing" means that a specific system within a company should be adapted to the specific needs of a company. On the one hand, this can be the case with an existing system, e. g. when the system has been upgraded or when it comes to optimizing specific processes or operations. On the other hand, the customizing is in demand during the implementation of a new system because new systems are usually provided as standard software. Here is a practical example: SAP SE has introduced SAP S/4HANA as the follow-up system of the classic SAP ERP system . The support for the legacy system will gradually come to an end and the SAP customers will be introduced to the new system step by step. And certainly, also new customers will be gained. During and for all these update and implementation processes, companies look urgently for consultants (either in-house or externally from consulting firms) who already have experience in working with SAP S/4HANA. Since SAP S/4HANA is still a relatively new product, the market for S/4HANA professionals is not saturated yet. If you are currently dealing with planning your career and professional future, then this is a stroke of luck: in hardly any other industry the job entry opportunities are so beneficial and the demand for young professionals so high as it is in the field of S/4HANA.

You want to work as a consultant but tend to stay more generally focused? You are also interested in the more technical aspects of SAP implementation and customizing, and would like to gain skills in these areas during your studies in order to ideally position yourself on the job market? In this case, our S/4HANA modules, including the TS410 consultant certification and the customizing module, are just the right choice!

In addition, there are various different topics and tasks in SAP consulting for which a specialization is an option. In the following, we would like to briefly introduce you to the most important areas.

SAP Finance Analyst:

The Financial Accounting application represents the widely used component of any SAP S/4HANA system which is justified by the accounting obligations of all merchants and voluntary balancing companies (§ 238 HGB). Theoretical knowledge and practical experience with the SAP S/4HANA system - and especially with the core component Financial Accounting (SAP FI) - are therefore often the basic prerequisites for professional advancement or promotion. While theoretical ERP knowledge is often part of scientific curricula, the link to practice usually lacks. Practical experience with a "living" SAP S/4HANA system offers you a clear competitive advantage on the job market!

If you work as an SAP consultant with a focus on SAP FI, ​​your ​​responsibility will usually cover the support of the specialist department for the corresponding SAP FI module, the support for the system and process requirements regarding design, planning, implementation and testing of the respective systems and processes. As an FI consultant, you are responsible for the module support and the customizing of SAP FI within the company, and you are responsible for the implementation and documentation of FI projects. In addition, you will be the contact person of the department in all matters relating to the FI module. In general, you will optimize existing processes as well as create process analyses and concepts. The coordination of implementations and the customizing of the SAP FI modules fall also within your area of ​​responsibility. Here, you work together closely and interdisciplinary with the development team and the end users.

You want to work in the consulting business, for example, with a specialization in SAP FI? You would like to develop practical skills in this area during your studies and distinguish yourself from the mass of graduates? Then our module of SAP FI is just the right choice!

SAP Data Modeler:

SAP Business Warehouse is the basis of almost every analytical process within the daily routine of a company, for example, in controlling or reporting areas, where large amounts of data is generally juggled with. However, many companies also use increasingly BW applications in marketing, purchasing and/or sales, which means that the operation of BW software is not exclusively reserved for senior management, but is also increasingly used in regular everyday businesses. One of the most important job profiles and user roles working in the BW environment is the Data Modeler.

As a Data Modeler, you work interdisciplinary and at eye level with the IT department of the respective company and/or the customer for whom you are working. You are familiar with data models and different data acquisition methods. Together with the IT department, you analyze the company processes and record the company and information requirements which you translate into concrete data models. In addition, you use statistics and data mining techniques to provide detailed analytical analyses of the data. You are able to provide data directly from operational SAP source systems, databases and third-party systems. You are also able to transform and harmonize them according to the company’s requirements. As a Data Specialist you move effortlessly between SAP BW and SAP HANA data models and you are responsible for the comprehensive development and generating new evaluations based on these new data models. Typical representatives of this group are analysts with additional technical training or external management consultants.

Are you looking for a career as a Data Analyst and would like to gain practical experience with SAP BW on HANA during your studies? You wish to start with a profound BW education in the application process and thereby increase your chances on the job market? Then our SAP BW on HANA module (with SAP certification) is just the right choice!
