3 years back, I had no clue at all about SAP; neither as a company nor as a product.
It all started in April 2011 when I joined a company that acts as a VAR for SAP: at that moment my Journey with SAP began!
For the very first time, I was really confused and I didn’t know where to start getting knowledge about SAP and SAP products.
My job required that I accumulate a huge amount of knowledge in a few days in order to start my duties and tasks; and that’s exactly what I did.
I placed a huge effort on getting the knowledge that I was looking for, using a wide variety of resources, and soon I found myself in the middle of the SAP World.
I started writing some ABAP basic programs and developed several reports. It wasn’t exceptionally difficult, as I am convinced that the fundamental concept of programming is always the same, regardless to the language. You can write any code and develop any programs. It is only a matter of syntax and occasionally some special tricks.
As time went by, I started seeking a professional SAP certificate. I was an Application Support Specialist. I decided to take the SAP Support Consultant Certificate, and became a Certified SAP Support Consultant after a one year journey with SAP.
The last thing that I want everyone to know is this:
Everything can be done, you just need the right Motivation.
