Having spent close to 7 years in industry working primarily in the area of SAP CRM consulting I belong to a much larger community of similar folks like me. and we are feeling the trouble. the trouble of this changing world, the trouble of all these SAP technological changes.
To be honest I have playing this wait and watch game so far of knowing between the many things which are the one going to succeed and I will start focusing on that. but as soon I begin to understand one new thing there is another poping up in market, Now I agree some of you might say that well that is how it works here budddy. fine I agree to some extent but isin’t it bit trouble some,
few months back I started to get going with C4C and the next moment I figured out about HyBris and then recently this S/4HANA. I mean come on atleast pause a moment, and now I have these all 4 here without knowing which one to pick up and go further.
1 On premise world – I know, I know days are over for this largely but there are still medium size companies in europe and latin america implementing it and we are still making some numbers there.
2. C4C – Picking up well but at ground level still some pacing to do
3. Hybris – Yes agree with the way it is being promoted. Got to be something. for now we are being customers only watching videos and all.
4. S/4HANA – Thats pretty recent and looks like the biggest innovation since R3. well lets just see.
So Back to my point of being a trouble with all these floating around in the world choosing the next step is difficult, yes the domain and functional knowledge does not change. the base of doing business is on same principals and no knowledge go to waste.
Could some of the veterans look from this lens of 7-10 yr old industry guys and point out some things to look out for in next run. there can not be a completely correct answers to it I am only looking for views and comments that can help me take the next step. Thanks
