Q

Which has better prospects -- ABAP or SAP BI?

SAP BI/BW expert Jay Narayanan weighs in on the prospects of ABAP jobs and BI jobs.

I have been certified in ABAP and now I will be working in SAP BI. Do you consider ABAP and BI complementary? Which

has better prospects?

Knowing ABAP is definitely an advantage if you work on SAP, regardless of any module, including BI. But having experience in just ABAP may not be helpful in the long run.

BI has better prospects and experienced BI professionals are going to be more in demand since BI is gaining more traction as IT industries gear towards SOA.
