Hi Goutham

Your profile seems to be similar to a Business Analyst.

From JG – I agree with the above comments. However, I also suggest:

a)If you are looking at getting into the SAP area, you have different options re: roles – Functional, Technical.
Functional consultancy is leaning more towards the business. A good understanding of the business aspects would help such role. A project may be in Manufacturing, Finance, Banking, HR, etc. For example if you have a good understanding of HR (eg., payroll, employee administration, employees’ time management, etc) it would help you to do well as a Functional Consultant in that area.
Technical area may be – program design/coding, Netweaver (applications’ interface/integration), BW, Workflow and so on.
b)Project Management is another area which encompasses all aspects of IT or business – need not be management of SAP projects only. However if you have a good understanding of SAP, it helps managing a SAP project.
c)Based on your interest in the different roles/industry, you will need to make a short list of your choices.
Then you further need to narrow down into short term and long term goals. It also depends on the scope or possibility of your getting the role/area based on your interest. This should now bring you a couple of choices as immediate goals.
As you have been transferred to the current role by you employer, this should be less problematic fo you.
d)Having chosen the immediate choice/s, you need to find a way of getting trained in the skills required. Again as your employer has given you the new role, this should not be a big issue.
You should also certify in the skill/s. SAP provides opportunities for this.
e)Then you need to get experience in the chosen area/s. This also you can get because of being involved in the implementation.
f)You need to get as much involved in the various aspects from project start to finish -called as Full Cycle implementation. It is very easy to get bogged down in too many aspects beyond your interest. You need to let other people handle that.
g)After some time, you need to review your experience and knowledge gained so far. Then if you wish, you may do the cycle all over again the above steps in another set of areas/roles/industries.

Hope this helps.
