SAP rookie looking for some advise.

Here i am, into SAP. Graduated with a Masters in Electrical engineering and was offered a full time position in a consulting firm to work on SAP programming ( ABAP ..). I took this job, coz nothing else was coming my way in EE. Anyway, the first couple of months were mostly programming. Now, due to some reason I've been assigned a Functional work for SD module. I have some background on the SD tables and have some business process knowledge. But this move has bought up some important questions. First of all .. 1) What can i do to make the best use of this transition to my career. 2) Although I don't have much experience, I do like to work on more functional issues. I plan to get an MBA in couple of years, Will this functional experience be of any help. If it does, which area in SD functional would be the best area to work on ( if i have a choice :)) 3) And finally, any advise, however small would be welcome. Warm Regards newSAPRookie.

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

I believe that the heart of SD resided in the pricing. This is where it all comes together – customers products type of delivery or service.
If i were you I would focus here as the rest of the outbound process is fairly vanilla – order taking, routing, delivery, picking And dispatch.

    The SAP environment offers a world of opportunities - partly because SAP covers so many business functions and industry specialities. Besides SD, someone with a non-IT technology background might be interested in some of the product lifecycle modules or perhaps in supply chain optimization. Also, you come to SAP when there are really two SAP's: SAP "classic" - the unified, monolithic architecture up through SAP R/3 4.6 and Enterpris - and SAP "modern," the new SAP architecture which is much more modular and based on Netweaver, xApps, etc. Because it is quite different and still in "early days", there are comparatively few people who are comfortable in the new SAP, so if you get an opportunity to learn it you could have a competitive advantage.
