SAP Consultants in Demand
SAP was founded by five German IBM engineers who acquired the rights for a real-time finance and materials management system they had designed for ICI. SAP is the market-leading enterprise resource planning suite, with a worldwide customer base that dwarfs those of competitors such as Oracle, PeopleSoft, Baan and JD Edwards.
The SAP offers from the classic core modules such as manufacturing, logistics, financial and human resources, to include customer relationship management, business intelligence and other applications. The number of job advertisements seeking SAP skills rose by 53% last year, according to the SSP. The rise is partly due to the release of SAP R/3 Enterprise. In the first 60 days, SAP claims to have delivered it to more than 1,500 companies.
A SAP Consultant earns an average salary of Rs 596,241 per year. The skills that increase pay for this job the most are SAP Advanced Planner and Optimizer, SAP Supplier Relationship Management and SAP Business Intelligence (SAP BI). Most people move on to other jobs if they have more than 10 years' experience in this career. Recession has affected India not that badly as other countries. As our market is the hub for outsourcing still people are getting some projects for support or high end implementation.
