Types of Consultants:
The most common question being asked in interviews is ' What are your roles and responsibilities?'.
Before answering the above question, let me explain the difference between Functional consultant and
Roles and responsibilities differ from functional consultant to Technical consultant.
Functional consultants are responsible for designing the SAP implementation solution based on the
requirements of your company.
Functional consultants are business process experts.
Functional consultants normally use their process knowledge to calculate the impact of the SAP
implementation on the company's processes.
Functional consultants are thus concerned with SAP functions and processes that will generate the data
and output for business.
Functional consultants interact with end users of the company to gather requirements and based on the
requirements they customize the SAP implementation.
Technical consultants are experts in information technology.
Technical consultants normally assist in configuration of the SAP R3 installation. In many SAP
implementations, technical consultants help in designing interfaces and customizations in R3. Finally, the
SAP R3 technical consultants would be responsible for migration of data from the legacy system to the new
SAP ERP implementation.
