What kind of functional experience is needed to launch a career in SAP BW? My current job profile deals with analyzing data from various source systems and data warehouses (including SAP BW) for report generating purposes. Will this experience help if I want to become a functional consultant in SAP BW domain?
Functional knowledge and experience required for BW depends on the roles and responsibilities you're seeking. From what you have mentioned, I understand that you are more into reporting and analyzing data, almost like a business analyst. Financial accounting, inventory management, purchasing and sales and distribution are some of the areas in demand. But experience or knowledge in these areas won't assure you a job. Understanding data warehousing concepts is important, and taking a training course in BW might help you launch your career in BW.
