What are the biggest challenges in SAP and IT consulting?
Something I find exciting and also challenging is that my work has very few routine tasks. Instead, I often deal with issues that make us face new, complex challenges. The job here is to keep thinking in new ways, search for the best solution in a dialog with the section, and keep optimizing and automating processes. In my view, this is what being a SAP Consultant is all about.
As a Process Consultant, I build a bridge between the section and the development team. This demands technical know-how as well as fundamental knowledge about business processes.
I maintain an intensive dialog with internal and external IT consultants and colleagues from other sections so that I can understand a problem and develop a solution. It involves breaking down requirement specifications into individual issues, analyzing them, creating a proposal for optimization, trialing it with a prototype if needed, and evaluating it from an integrated point of view. A solution is only rolled out after people are convinced by it. Requirement specifications can be compared to a puzzle. You only get a full picture after you piece it together.
These different challenges, the constant change of perspective, and the associated development of my capabilities are what I like a lot about my job
