Careers in SAP NetWeaver
For those interested in SAP jobs in general, and NetWeaver jobs in particular, the surest path is to acquire expertise in both ABAP and Java. This not only prepares you for a broader range of SAP deployment scenarios but also makes you more adept in integrating non-SAP systems into SAP.
For consultants at an earlier or transitional stage in their careers, here is advice on whether you should move to NetWeaver or whether, as a Java specialist, you should learn NetWeaver. Be aware that creating a NetWeaver career can take some planning and creative thinking.
In SAP's terminology, a Business Process Expert (BPX) is someone who understands how SOA and BPM combine to add value to SAP solutions. BPX training and certification is available, and SAP believes that it would be of value to project managers in both IT and business who need a better understanding of SAP's foundations. Thus, everyone professionally interested in NetWeaver should be sure to learn more about BPX classes and certification.
