Thousand of questions & confusions were rolling in my mind (and why not,  I was appearing for the certification for second time with only one month of preparation). First time, I am don’t know about the SAP Certification and I don’t know this much tough to clear it. I am failed ! I am shocked ! I am worried! I have decided not to lose my confidence and I applied SAP PI Certification second time. Atlast cleared my SAP PI Certification and excited! 😎

In today IT sectors, we see lots of technical certification programs & exams, some certification are related to Hardware,Software & Networking. Some certifications are conducted by SAP, Individual organization, Private firm. From the childhood, I have received many certificates but SAP Certificate is always special to me.

Most of the senior IT guys says SAP certifications prove that an IT professional is knowledgeable but may not prove how well they can actually do the job.I assure that, certifications are very effective tool for building skill levels, improved marketability and career opportunities.

  • Thanks for sharing your experience about SAP PI Certification. Can you give few tips towards preparation. The only area where I struggle is ccBPM 🙂 .

      • Thank you Hari. It’s a coincidence that my name also is Hari 🙂 In my consulting experience the clients i worked with stayed away from using BPM so I had very little exposure to BPM. I am reading BIT430 BPM in preparation towards certification. From certification point of view how many questions can I expect from BPM ? Do i need to get some practical experience in BPM before taking the certification? Could you please share your email address so I can stay in touch .

        Thanks again !

        • Hi Hari,

          You are welcome. I cannot confirm about the exact number of question of BPM. Anyway, I will send you my email address directly to you and not in common place. Is that okay with you?

  • HI! Buddy

    Thanks for sharing your valuable views with all of us. It would be great if you could provide me with some guidance:

    I have just passed my MBA from a top business school in the UK. The MBA is a generic MBA and does not specialise in a specific area.

    I am thinking of getting into SAP consulting as an MBA and SAP make a very lucrative  and decent combination.

    Before my MBA i have worked in Sales and Marketing area: mainly Business to Business Sales, Field Sales, Account Management Sales.

    If needed i am  prepared to take a small crash course in Software Engineering basics in India, from NIIT or Aptech etc, India.

    ( to gain basic and technical understanding).

    Now my Main questions are:

    • Which would be a good Module for me to take in SAP?
    • Which are the best SAP training centres in India, where a job placement is offered after the course?
    • Which is good place to gain IT, Software Engineering, IT basics knowledge in India? where i could gain a placement and hand on experience?

    Financing my study fees is a concern but not a problem, but  do need a reputed training centre and a job placement. Need as much possible hands on experience, on live projects etc.

    Any information & help appreciated!

  • Hari,

    This blog is wonderful.

    When i did my certification i was and tensed , if i would be able to clear it it or not? I never took a formal training in any SAP training institute, however my office had given me some training for 20 days. I had a good number years of hands on experience and only self study before i appeared for it and passed 🙂 .

    What i feel, the key to clear of the exam as you told  “knowledge & Self confidence is very much required to pass the SAP certification”.

    One thing which i noticed in IT industry, people do certification like getting a paper in IT industry (more billing 🙂 ). Getting a certification is not the goal  but if someone cleared it then it is even harder to be with the pace as the industry and business evolving very rapidly.

    Again appreciating for this wonderful blog post.



    • Hi Sayantan,

      I dont say completing certification is not difficult and it’s also not easy too. If you seriously think about SAP Certification value, definitely you can clear it. After clearing the SAP certification you will all 7 wonders in one place.

      SCN is always the best place to learn and share technical skills. Keep sharing and contributing.

      All the best !
