SAP FI
My earlier question on what is the best fit for my skill sets was answered as SAP PLM and SAP ABAP. I come with a physical asset management consulting background (not financial asset maangement). I'm interested in EAM (Enterprise Asset Management). I am being advised locally that SAP FI is a good entry point into the world of SAP, especially since I want to be on the functional side rather than the technical side. I am being told that getting trained in SAP FI will help to orient and familiarize oneself with the SAP application. Later on one can receive training in EAM modules (PLM, PM, etc.). I would like to know what the SAP Gurus on this forum think. I do not have any SAP background and wish to switch my career from asset management consulting to SAP functional consulting focusing on EAM. Also, I would like to know your opinion (SAP Gurus) on what are my chances in the future with a skill set combo in ERPs like SAP and EAM and how should I progress towards building that skill set.

    Though it is few years ago, but still now it can be used as future reference/ search.
    How does it can be judged. SAP FI is a module deals with financial area and you if you are comfortable with accounting jobs, then it is OK for you. Entirely it depends on your knowledge / know-hows and also current scenario of job market. Some companies want experienced person, but this is not mandatory. Any SAP module is on high demand, if any one does it according to his/ her qualification/ working background.
