Is going through end-user support the right way to get the relevant experience in FI/CO? I have prior experience in neither SAP nor accounting but would like to move into this area. How can I get the relevant experience in this current situation?
At some point, you have to get the configuration experience, and some companies won't let their own employees get those skills for a variety of reasons, including the risk of losing their employees to the open market. But yet, end-user support is a proven way to move into SAP.
The ideal is to get more and more sophisticated, designing and delivering training, managing help desks, serving as a link to the functional teams, etc. Over time, you try to become a real functional expert and hopefully you get rewarded with a role on the configuration side during an upgrade cycle.
