Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would go online and check if there are more opportunities in Oracle Financials or in SAP, regardless you have to learn a new software package as all companies use an Accounting software package these days.
The sooner you learn the better it is for you. I can talk about SAP as don’t know Oracle Financials. You are a CPA so concentrate on SAP FI/CO. Time period required to learn depends upon how much effort you put in.
Online courses are available for both, if you register for four weekend courses, you will have to invest tons of your time. If you register in a college then it will take a couple of years but you will have good understanding of the subject.
Hope this will help….Good Luck.

    Sammy, Certification always helps, however, SAP knowledge is more helpful. When you prepare for SAP job, keep certification in mind and study for that also. ECC 6 requires two certifications. One for FI and the other one for CO.

    Hi Sammy Anna Strange that i find somebody in a similar situation as i'm facing! I'm also a CPA candidate in Houston TX and i have been working as a staff accountant for 4 years. I'm also looking to add a SAP FICO certification to my resume as from my research i have carried out, FICO consultants are in high demand in the US. Have you decided which option you are going to use? (online or college training)

    In my opinion, you will have better chances if you learn a middle size Accounting Software. Tere are more Mid-Size companies than there are big size. Mid size Accounting Software such as Epicor, Dynamics Nav, Dynamics AX and GP, MAS500 are options.

    Hi Sammy,

    I am sure you would be surprised to get a fellow-up on a question you asked 5 years ago, 'Oracle or SAP?'. I found myself in exactly the same position. I am a CPA & a Sr. Auditor at one of the local firms in Washington DC. To increase marketability/mobility; and also get out of public accounting, I wanted to add some software/IT skill. I just want to know how it worked out for you? Oracle Financial vs. SAP Financial, which one has a better job opportunity? I greatly appreciate any help from anybody.

    Thank you,
