How do you become successful in BPC projects, what are the skills that i need to have to get better, if i am a BW consultant, can i convert into a BPC consultant etc. etc.

I would recommend reading a new book that has come out, authored by Sridhar Srinivasan and Kumar Srinivasan, which is a must read if you are exploring into this products

Offcourse you should additionally become more finance savvy, business savvy as you groom into become  a better BPC consultant. Study a finance MBA or CFA or CPA, and become BPC certified, this would help a lot

We also have lot of content posted in BPX community

    Hi Muthu,

    I think these links are good for the community however I would also recommend that those looking to upskill in the Business Planning and Consolidations arena look in the SAP Education courses.

    http://www.sap.com/services/education/catalog/businessobjectstraining/epm/curriculum.epx?context=%5B%5BCPM%5D%5D|

    There are now Microsoft and NetWeaver specific courses as well as a consolidations deep dive course. There is also the possibility of becoming certified as a BPC Specialist by SAP Education by attending the above linked track.

    I highly recommend digging into the individual EPM related blogs as well.

    Cheers, Scott

    If I want to be a better XYZ, I should read a book. Because?…Well, because you say so.

    That appears the gist of your post.

    I guess it would have been too much to have to put a little more context on why a particular book might be helpful. Perhaps other SDNers (eg Keller, or Jung) didn’t have the same gravitas to pitch books on SDN blogs with a pithy IF THEN construct (If you want to be …, then do this..).

    My response – thanks but no thanks.

    Then again, maybe generous use of exclamation marks in the title text would sway the SDNers. That is a trick that always works.

      Ajay,

      Good feedback and point well taken. Over the past few months i have been receiving lot of request on how a BW consultant can become a bpc consultant. Or how i can upskill on bpc.

      I just wanted to basically post this update  about this book that got published by sap press and i thought sdn/bpx is a great forum to communicate the same. So i had published this as a blog post so that consultants interested may explore looking at this option.

      Yes, i could spent more time on writitng more about the book etc., unfortunately did not have the time, so hence had to put it short.

      No other intentions.

      regards
      Muthu Ranganathan
