Getting into SAP from a network/server engineer background
Posted on 2004-08-15
Hi, I have a strong background in Network, Server technology (Microsoft, Cisco, etc.). I was offered an opportunity by a friend who works with SAP to work with him on some side jobs for very good money. I think he does mostly upgrades, and maintenance type work with SAP. He has a lot of connectins and has been doing it for years now. The thing is though I would have 3 months to learn how to implement or do maintenance on SAP. I figured I would get some books, take a training course, and first tag along on some of my friends jobs to see what he does, then try to get certified.
How much of my networking and server background will carry over into helping me learn SAP. I want to know what I'm getting myself into before I spend about 3500 dollars on books and training. Can anyone give me some advice. Thanks
