  • » Economic slowdown and a Ford Fiesta
    cold morning mist spraying WD40 contact spray under the bonnet or pushing it down the hill in a desperate attempt to jump start it This little anecdote is not too dissimilar from what the economic outlook is like at the moment The economy is more or less like that old car of mine back in the 90ies Battered bruised and nobody can make a guess at this point in time if it will start up when we need it Once people have attended to their Christmas shopping and paid their credit card bills will it wake up again and take us where we want to go Of course the economy will not go into some sort of Snow White like eternal hibernation but the question certainly is will something or someone kiss it awake again 2009 will certainly keep us all on the edge of our seats that s for sure This entry was posted in SAP Market Bookmark the permalink Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email will not be published Name and Email fields are required Comment Name Email Website About me My name is Michael Koch SAP Solution Architect Mentor and SAP Press Author This is my company profile and site ABAP Development for SD book Pixelbase Electric Looking for my the blog musings about electric vehicles and transportation Follow this link to Pixelbase Electric Recent Posts Come and see me at SAP Insider Events in 2015 A double Logo SAP 2015 Trends for ABAPers a brief overview Archives Archives Select Month October 2015 November 2014 October 2014 April 2013 October 2012 September 2012 August 2012 May 2012 March 2012 November 2011 October 2011 September 2011 August 2011 March 2011 February 2011 January 2011 December 2010 November 2010 October 2010 August 2010 July 2010 June 2010 May

  • » Why SAP Consultants should not go for niche
    might also mean that you have to do a lot of travelling to find those niche companies Don t put all your eggs in one basket On the other hand remaining a generalist in these times could mean that you ll be able to work on different levels analysis development training mentor team lead project management etc There s IT departments out there who have snippets and short term work available during hard times that could keep you afloat until the time things are picking up again This might also mean that you do not have to travel as far as a specialist whose work might be scattered all over Europe or the US for example I am basically saying you re not putting all your eggs in one basket This entry was posted in SAP Market and tagged contractors economy SAP skills Bookmark the permalink 2 thoughts on Why SAP Consultants should not go for niche Permalink Jon Reed December 10 2008 at 6 14am Hey Michael I read your post with a lot of interest not the least of which is that I have been planning a blog entry on a similar topic for some time I don t think I ll get to mine for at least another week or two but I ll let you know when it s up I think you raise some really important points I tend to agree in the sense that having an unmarketable niche in SAP can backfire It is probably better to be a generalist than have a niche you can t market easily I know your post was focused more towards developers so I ll try to keep mine on the same level The danger with being too much of a generalist as an SAP programmer is that generalized programming work is more likely to be outsourced I think in some ways the niche versus generalist debate can be a false argument in the sense that I think you can cultivate both I recommend having a core base of well rounded SAP skills in a particular area with a couple of specializations that logically extend from that core This is an important point because some folks chase niche skills that don t relate to their core strengths And when you re new to SAP you shouldn t just chase a niche you want to be building a foundation of skills also So in many cases I think there can be both a core and an emerging skill An example might be an ABAP BW programmer who decides to add MDM programming to their core MDM is a good logical extension of BW skills but since the MDM product still has a smaller level of market acceptance it doesn t make sense to put all eggs in the MDM niche unless you are a true expert So combining the core ABAP BW with MDM could make sense Another direction for the ABAP BW person could be towards Business Objects

    not necessarily have this option In fact in most cases the relationship that was built between recruiter and contractor ends when the contract is terminated Of course it might happen that your agent has another position he would like to put you forward for but during the last 5 years this has never happened to me This is where I envy people in the arts for example No not mainly because of the work they do you should see me act but because artists have ONE agent that they re dealing with usually on a long term basis This one agent handles all negotiations with potential clients This is the point I am trying to make here they build a relationship which actually works well for both of them in a good case The contractor gets an agent which gets to know him and his work better and better Thereby the agent can increase his ability to market the freelancer even better in the future Why is this not possible in the normal labour market Welcome to the real world of work This is the world in which for example clients are undecided about project staff decisions agents are trying to compete for client business amongst themselves and contractors are simply too worried about finding the next job and are therefore happy to vagabond from one agent to another If anyone has a better answer why consultants can not have long term agents please let me know Posted in Blogosphere SAP Market Tagged agents clients contractors freelance SAP 1 Comment getting passionate about SAP Posted on November 12 2008 by Michael Koch This post originated as a reponse to an article on JonERP com about the biggest mistake that SAP job seekers make I ve tried a few times to add it as a comment but for some reason it just doesn t seem to like it so I decided to post it here and trackback it There is a lot of talk about passion for SAP in this article and that s what I am mainly focussing on Continue reading Posted in Blogosphere SAP Market Tagged career Jon Reed SAP 1 Comment working as an independent consultant Posted on November 11 2008 by Michael Koch Matthew Billingham wrote a very insightful blogpost on SDN about his experiences as an independent SAP consultant in Europe As I mentioned in the comments I had a similar post in mind for ages but it s just one of those things Matthew weighs up the pros and cons rather well in his contribution Everyone who is looking into going freelance be it within SAP or not should definitely have a read Posted in Blogosphere SAP Market Tagged SAP 2 Comments SAP consulting success in a time of downturn Posted on November 7 2008 by Michael Koch Jon Reed just posted a good article about a SAP Consultant s changed environment and skill requirements in a downturn market Jon amalgamated some of his earlier
