SAP Training comes to me as too pricey but in my humble opinion, it’s worth investing for. But if you just want to get acquainted with its interface and basic principles and operations, just to have a small handle of it or to serve as a springboard towards further SAP exploration, then the web-based free online SAP training is the way to go.
What’s the hype about SAP?
With SAP’s software and software-related sales increased by more than 10 percent last year, and its acquisition of Ariba, a software and IT firm headquartered in Sunnyvale, California, I expect that more and more companies are using, and are about to use SAP applications. It being an enterprise-based solution provides huge opportunities, not only for IT practitioners, but for people of different fields of specialization, such as HR professionals, purchasers or even warehouse managers.
