How to become a SAP Consultant?

By K. Buhary

Today is the day of dot.com, doubt.com and dot.gone. Following the down fall of dot.coms, all IT companies had to cut cost so that they can survive in the competitive IT world. To fill up the gap, SAP- an ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Software came to help those who wanted to cut cost and increase efficiency.

SAP was founded in Germany in 1972 by five ex-IBM engineers. In case you’re ever asked, SAP stands for Systems, Applications, Products in Data Processing. There are different modules in SAP R/3 which helps in integrating and improving business practices. From medium sized companies, to global giants - SAP R/3 products offer a hard- to- beat combination of functionality, flexibility, and technology, enabling companies to respond quickly to change. There are now thousands of installations of SAP, in 120 countries, with more innumerable users!

In depth knowledge is the key word for SAP learning for which cost effective training is also available. The duration of the course is only for 1 – 2 months depending upon the modules. Those who are selected as a SAP Consultants are getting record high salary today. So it is time to be more smart to be successful in your career.

SAP runs on a fourth generation programming language called Advance Business Application Programming (ABAP). It have many of the features of other modern programming languages such as the familiar C, Visual Basic, and Power Builder.

One may wonder – What one can learn in a two months training of SAP Training. Well it is really a worth while planning and developing ones mind set, so that he gets the confident and makes things possible in a serious planning with other heads of departments of SAP Implementers. Getting an implementation experience is also a must. In other words, no one will give you an opportunity without implementation experience.

Got an Idea?

By Almas Banu

Heard of Intellectual Property Rights or IPR? If you have an idea, you need to have it registered and it can generate money. The concept is, one who develops the idea deserves the money and there are ways of projecting and protecting it. For instance, India had put up a fight with Americans to protect its rights as they tried to duplicate our Basmathi rice and we got back our rights.

India is a storehouse of intellectual ideas and already a number of ideas have been registered and many have been patented. It is not necessary that one must possess high degrees, the ideas can come from farmers or even housewives. In fact, there is a national body –National Innovation Foundation which helps in registering and promoting ideas about traditional knowledge or unaided technological innovations attempted by farmers, artisans, fishermen, women slum dwellers, workshop mechanics or even local communities in managing natural resources. This includes bio-diversity, generating herbal remedy for human, plant and animal health or developing new technological implements, gadgets or machines or processes for farm operations, household utility transportation for improved efficiency, energy conservation or generation and reducing drudgery or any other low- cost sustainable green technology related to the various aspects of survival in urban and rural areas.

I wish to present my case as it would motivate housewives like me to get their ideas registered. It so happened that traditionally in our family, a mixture of raisins was used for control of diahorrea and this is in consonance with what the WHO advocates. WHO advises only oral re-hydration with electrolytes with some nutrition, but doctors continue to give drugs for control of diahorrea. So when I sent my proposal for use of a natural product made from raisins, it not only had all the minerals required for quick recovery, it had nutrition too and so this product became “for the first time in the world Natural Electrolyte plus Nutrition” and the same has been registered with the National Innovation Foundation and is short-listed for a National Award. I request each of the reader not to miss this opportunity if the have any idea.
