Dear SAPiens and aspirant SAPiens. 

Are you seriously considering SAP as your ERP career? Then, you must be serious and curious to know much more about SAP, its different modules, experiences and its effect on salary structures. There is a beautiful quote by Napoleon Bonaparte "Ability is of little account without opportunity", but the world is always open to skilled personnel and human capital is the most important resource to a firm, society and to the world as well.
