What is SAP?

SAP stands for Systems Applications and Products in data processing and is also the name of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. SAP systems consist of a few fully integrated modules covering almost every part of business management from HR and finance to the inventory and production. These roles are almost the same as any career in the IT industry, however, focuses solely on SAP.

The software helps streamline businesses processes, making it easier for companies to stay centralized which can help with eventual growth and expansion. An SAP Administrator can focus on a number of aspects under the umbrella of working with the software, such as analyst, project manager, technician, or consultant.

Salary Information and Career Progression

Cloud Application Architect$170,000 -$250,000
SAP HANA Architect$150,000
SAP Customer Engagement Manager$130,000
SAP HANA Analytics Consultant$130,000
SAP SD Consultant $130,000
  • Opportunity within the SAP Industry

    The SAP industry has seen a recent boom as more businesses are recognising the impact a streamlined businesses process has. By centralizing all processes, companies are able to save money on outsourcing the management of things like production, customer service, and even data analysis. By taking control of every aspect of business processes through SAP software, entrepreneurs are able to make better-informed decisions about the direction of the company.

    As SAP software can be implemented within any industry, there are always job opportunities available within both new and established organisations. The experience you gain working with SAP software provides more flexibility with future roles. For example, you could work as a SAP analyst or technician for a company, or turn to consultancy, or even work as a contractor as a project manager. You may even choose to work directly for SAP, which is a multinational organisation with offices around the world.

    The competition is fierce, however, as more people have noticed the demand for SAP professionals as well as the high salary. Prospective candidates will need to have high grades and the relevant qualifications and experience in order to stand out from the crowd.

  • Recent Changes in the Sector

    The SAP HANA certification program expanded by several courses in 2018, which SAP administrators will need to know, depending on what SAP software they are working with. Those working in the industry must keep on top of any updates with the software, and take on any extra training as necessary. It is crucial to have the necessary certifications when working within SAP, as this can be the edge needed to stand apart from any competitors when job searching.

  • Future Prospects

    SAP administrators in any role understand how the software can work within any industry. Ongoing training is crucial for anyone working with SAP, as this can mould future job prospects as well as the smooth-running of the business. Gaining the latest certifications means that SAP administrators can easily switch between jobs and quickly progress their own careers while bringing the latest technology and software updates to current roles.

  • Salt’s advice for getting a SAP job

    Employers’ Requirements

    Many jobs in SAP, especially working on a contract basis, mean you may be client-facing. Administrators must be smart and professional and be able to understand the ins and outs of how the business runs. Excellent communication skills are a must, as well as a good business understanding. Working in SAP generally requires working as a team, and you must have excellent analytical skills and be well organised.

    CV Requirements

    Depending on the job level you’re applying for, you will need to have experience working with the software in a business. If you’re applying for a managerial or senior position, you will need to be able to prove you can take on the various duties and have the relevant experience in managing a team. You will also be expected to have relevant experience working in the industry you’re applying for. As SAP can be implemented within any industry, you will need an understanding of how the business runs.

    Interview Preparation

    As with any job you apply for, you must research the company and job in detail. Make sure you highlight the relevant skills and experience on your CV and remember to bring them up in the interview in more detail. You should also research into the soft skill requirements needed for the role, such as the working environment and whether you’ll be leading a team. Having as much as detail about the role as possible means you can prepare any answers and highlight your skills relevant to the position and business.

    If you can, find out the interview style. For example, whether it’s going to be a detailed technical SAP interview or a more informal chat about your previous roles. As SAP can be applied to any industry, you’ll need to understand the sector and how SAP can fit into the business you’re interviewing with. An SAP data analyst role in a fashion retail business, for example, can have stark differences to a role as a manufacturing execution consultant. You will be expected to know how to take on the role, what is expected of you, and how your skills can benefit the business.

    Educational Requirements

    Working in SAP means you must have a degree in a field related to computer studies. In most cases, a bachelor’s degree is required, however, most SAP administrators have a master’s. You will also need to have the relevant SAP certifications once you’ve completed the relevant courses in order to get a job in the field.

Top Tip

"Being certified in cloud technologies can only help but to increase your traction in the job market, and can increase potential earnings per project."

— Michaela Killick, Director
