ERP Consultants

Because every ERP user company has a unique requirement, ERP Consultants are required to be able to configure the applicable modules of the product to suit every client user company.

ERP Specialists / Business Analysts

The term 'Consultant' is used when the company provides a service to other companies. the buyer / receiving company. The person supplying the service in a SAP Consulting house we call a SAP Consultant and the receiver of the service who might have similar qualifications we refer to as a SAP Business Analyst.

ERP Super-Users and Users

The end users of the system is an important community in the continuing evolvement of the system. The users are the true champions of the business area. Often one user in a group is seconded to represent all the user's inputs to the system to the development team and is then called a 'Super-User'. Often Super users are groomed to become ERP Consultants because of their superior knowledge of the business area.

SAP ERP Specialists / Consultants:

To plot the type of experience you have obtained in your career, we use a spreadsheet which plots the functions in the lifecycle of a project against the modules on the right. You then have to fill in the months spent on each function in each module listed in the next column.
