If you want to get into the SAP business, you should learn a lot of abbreviations by heart: PP, ERP, CO-OM-ABC, S4HANA and many more. If you can do that, you can call yourself a SAP consultant or SAP developer – and expect a nice salary a year for it.
The abbreviations refer to the products of the company SAP, with which companies digitally map and manage business processes such as sales or accounting. And the German company SAP is quite successful at this: It is one of the largest software companies in the world. According to the company, 77 percent of the global trade volume runs through SAP systems.
A very special cosmos has developed around the company’s products. SAP consultants look at which SAP products a company needs and help to introduce them. SAP developers are working on existing SAP systems or introducing new modules. Both positions are in the upper mid-range of IT salaries. You don’t earn as much as employees in IT security or general IT consulting, but you can expect more money than colleagues in support or in frontend development.
