SAP certification is the most sought among various People who are working in SAP background and would like to move up in the ladder. Although there are hundreds who know SAP and work on the same but Certified SAP Consultants stand among them. Once upon a time I had wondered as i am working in SAP, why do i need a certification.
Answer to this question, i got when there was a recession in 2008.
My company laid off non certified SAP consultants but indeed kept the Certified Professionals.
I started observing that Certification does gives an edge over other professionals working in an organization.
There was a time during late 90's when SAP was booming among the other IT technologies. Most of young graduates, senior professionals working in government oil majors quit their jobs to pursue a career in SAP.
It was a time when interviewer's ask couple of transactions, if you answer them, you are in to the company. Slowly trends changed, and now when a recruitment for SAP consultants happen, questions in MM range from ABAP debugging to the warehouse management.
In this competitive world, Certification in SAP is a exceptional benefit. There are various organizations who charge people in the name of SAP, so arised a need to write this document in order to help the people about SAP certification and related details.
