Is it necessary to learn ABAP for SAP BW?

Check out SAP career expert Jon Reed's take on ABAP in SAP BW. One reader with data warehousing experience asks if ABAP knowledge is necessary for BW.

I am working in data warehousing, and I have two and a half years of experience. I'd like to learn SAP BW. Will it be necessary to learn ABAP?
Some BW roles require ABAP, but many do not. There are a number of successful BW consultants who, like yourself, have data warehousing backgrounds. I do think that it's nice for BW folks to have some ABAP know-how, but you can pick that up "on the fly" as you go forward.
