How do you see the future of SAP consulting? I think it’s going to be a wild ride for the next five years or so with all S/4HANA upgrades, but what happens then? New greenfield implementations seem already quite rare.

Obviously there is going to be some smaller ”basic work” but I think the amount of work will decrease significantly after couple of years so are you concerned at all and planning to move to another filed or confident that there will be enough work in the future as well?

People have started in and retired from careers in SAP already. That will continue to be the case for a while.


It will continue as it always have been…busy…
There are so many companies in the world that didn’t migrate to s/4 or even started the sap journey yet, so many clients in other ERPs and so many new companies yet to be created…it is a field with endless work if you are a decent sap consultant


There is always something new being released. I also doubt it’s only going to last another 5 years. A lot of large companies still haven’t moved to S/4 Hana.

It then stabilizes and slows down for a few years and something new comes out and we’re back to high demand.


SAP work will continue to be there for year. But then, IBM Mainframe work is also still out there.

The fact is, value of that work will continue going down, unless SAP comes up a drastic change. Do you think anyone will prefer SAP CRM over Salesforce?


PwC1, yes. I would expect SAP to continue growing through acquisitions. If you’re SAP, or if you’re a SAP aligned sales person, it helps you. However, if you’re a technology person, none of that helps. The good old SAP as you know will be diminishing. The new offerings will be better served by folks who grew up on SFDC and Workday, instead of HANA.


Core SAP ERP work will continue but there is a large variation of skill.

T/5 will come out
