One very important aspect of this new reality is: professional resources. The birth of specially capable professionals – IT-Fiscal  Consultants.

When the Brazilian Government decided to invest on this digital monitoring, originated from the Income Tax, they also gave jobs to most IT infra-structure professionals. Besides, large teams of web developers were also hired.

Ancient bookkeepers and controllers have now upgraded their careers. Holding large amount of professional data, great experience and, with the outcome of technology, most of them have turned into great and wealthy Fiscal Consultants!

In IT, the EAI teams have also been recognized by their work in communicating and assuring secure connection when dealing with highly confidential data.

But all these were already existing positions. Now, a new figure is born: the IT-Fiscal Consultant. That element who will connect IT and Corporate Fiscal departments and promote integration, cooperation, optimized implemented tools and obligations. It’s more likely that application consultants will assume such positions due to the great number of projects they take part in. They already master the tool and, the Process part comes with the professional activity.

It will be more difficult to have Fiscal professionals becoming IT consultants either because of a personal profile reason, or because their daily routine consumes their time with controlling the business and, therefore, no spare time for IT learning.

So, the very specific and wide needs above will naturally select above the average professionals. Once one reaches the senior level in this new field, he deserves to be well paid! Besides, most of them will work as contractors, self employed. This scenario, together with the economy law of offerXdemand, take these professionals’ rates across the roof.

In SAP, agencies almost kill for capable consultants to work for them. Sub-contracting is the most common hiring model, though the most expensive for the clients. The outcome is:

–          Large number of complex and expensive projects

–          Weak deployment

–          Knowledge not held in the companies (clients)

Agencies or even SAP Brazil itself should start building such professionals. It works pretty much the same as Cloud Computing and Business by Design trends that will demand specific profile professionals.  Maybe a Fit4Fiscal (my suggestion!!)  product could be created.

Another day, a friend commented about Brazilian consultants not blogging. I guess this is a topic for them to elaborate. Please, feel free to add your remarks to this blog. Come up with your ideas and experiences in this IT-on-demand development model !!!

See ya!

      Hello Sandra!

      Thanks for the input! Sorry if the blog might not be so technical to the ABAP level. As an ABAPper I can see it is much more a BP issue.
      But I’d like to clarify my intention which is to communicate with professionals from all modules. Try to exchange ideas e cooperate with professionals that might want to migrate to this new trend, as I did.
      As an ABAPper, I would prefer to have a project which scope would be adequate the code of a client to the OO Model. Quite difficult!!! Besides, to have a good performance in OO, you will also need to understand the process a little more than usual.
      Why not take the chance of this new scenario and engage in never ending projects of this area with the benefit of using OO?

      Have a nice weekend!

        I would also agree that the ABAP tag is misleading as this really does not cover the intended scope for ABAP related blogs.  Most people looking for ABAP related blogs are looking for way more technical topics than this in the category. 

        Take care,

            Thanks for fixing that.  The blog regardless of category was a nice overview for those who may want to learn about different types of skills/IT resource trends in places around the global different from their own.

            Take care,
