Learning SAP ABAP
Its Nitin Sharma from Nagpur, working as a software engineer in Software Quality department, having 3.6 yr's of experience in Manual Testing system.
Now planning to update my self with SAP ABAP technology, but having confusion regarding the scope for Manual Tester in SAP field.
So will you please advice it will be better for me to learn SAP ABAP or not???
Please suggest any course technology which will be better to learn..
Are you currently testing SAP? My thinking is that you're not, and that you are hoping that learning SAP ABAP is a way into a SAP testing career. Please correct me if I'm wrong there.
Learning ABAP will give you a reasonable background into SAP architecture and, depending on the course, can explain the interdependencies across SAP modules and components, as well as the logical flow of transactions.
Manual SAP testers tend to be specific towards certain modules. Sales, Procurement, HR, Finance, Manufacturing, etc. Although there is some scope for the more technical aspects of testing (digging into User Exit code), the vast majority of manual testing is functional and, in my opinion, requires a split between SAP knowledge and functional business acumen. Some of the SAP knowledge can be gained by learning the specific modules (there are online courses, SAP Press books, IDES test systems available). The functional business acumen is difficult to teach and mostly comes with experience.
In short, if you're technically minded then SAP ABAP will give you a good introduction to SAP, but if you want to be a manual functional tester then you'll also need to target specific modules and focus on the functional aspects
