Your SAP developer should possess a Bachelor or Master of Science degree in computer science, business administration, business engineering, or another pertinent field. Industry-specific knowledge in such areas as business or finance will be an asset in your SAP developer. SAP certifications are a plus, but they are no substitute for experience. These certifications carry more weight as a professional climbs the ladder of success and the certification criterion become harder to meet. Advancement for your SAP developer should require business, communication, and project management skills.
