Hello Again its me, Mz again writing after a brief gap.
Today I would like to discuss a topic which I hope would be interesting to all out there.
How many of us have been a part of or atleast heard the below conversation.
Consultant 1 : “Hi, consultant 2, which technology do you work for?”
Consultant 2 : “Oh, I work in SAP”
Consultant 1 : “Hey that’s great. What are you, a technical or functional consultant?”
Consultant 2 : “Hmm…. I am a Technical/Functional”
I have a comment regarding the above conversation.Why is it that people restrict themselves to being a technical or functional consultant exclusively. I feel that if you are a technical consultant, you should have basic functional knowledge. I mean, just being an ABAPer doesn’t seem to have much meaning unless you understand how the business works and know the basic tables etc related to the functional R/3 modules.
I know that there are many consultants who are technofunctional, and I totally respect them and give them a thumbs up from my side :). I cannot comment really on the functional consultants, however. I am not sure how easy it is for a pure functional guy to learn technical SAP. But, I do feel that if a technical guy puts enough effort he can go a long way in becoming a technofunctional guy.
I am working on developing a series of articles on each of the SAP R/3 modules keeping the average Techie in mind. I plan to put up these articles on SDN as they are completed (time permitting of course).
Please comment and let me know what you think of my idea.
