Why SAP Jobs are Always in Demand

The tech world is saturated with opportunities for progression and development, both in a technical sense and a professional capacity. From behind-the-scenes advances which propel growth and lead to the generation of new technologies to job vacancies created by this demand for innovative professionals, the tech industry is in a constant state of motion – and this motion is constantly heading in a forward direction.

Whilst IT career opportunities are as varied as the industry itself, SAP jobs seem to always be in demand, but why? As crucial components of corporate IT systems, SAP systems have a greater influence on businesses than you might realise and this helps retain their position.

SAP Success

SAP (Systems Applications and Products in Data Processing) was founded more than 40 years ago in 1972 and is the name for the company behind the software and of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning). From the outset SAP was a thriving area of investment and growth, totting up over 140,000 global installations by 2010 with 75,000 customers in 120 countries to make it the ERP market leader.

Development didn’t stop there and in June 2013 SAP agreed to purchase Switzerland-based Hybris AG to fuel their expansion into e-commerce software with the intention of increasing consumption in key markets (China, for example).

This was also a reaction to the growing dominance of cloud computing with SAP increasing the number of its programs available online – something which saw cloud subscriptions double to 183 million Euros for their Q2 revenue.

SAP Importance

Whilst the above looks at how SAP jobs have risen to fame, it doesn’t quite explain why. The answer to this question lies in the importance of SAP systems which form the backbone of numerous centralised data management systems.

SAP solutions can aid resource planning where organisations are expanding to contain a large chain of users. Where this happens, decentralised systems can cause data to become trapped within specific departments, stunting growth by narrowing the channels of communication.

With centralised ERP, data can be accessed from other departments to increase transparency and aid communication. Naturally security remains a core principle, with outside interference of infiltration protected against, but the increased visibility directly benefits the customers, clients and firms.
Salaries are relatively high for these positions due to the nature of the work and this is a reflection of the role SAP plays in the IT industry. When considering why these jobs are in demand, it is the combination of the systems’ success and importance which breeds an environment where vacancies are generated and professionals needed.

For those interested in setting foot on this rung of the IT career ladder, relevant experience and training to degree level is usually needed but the benefits are more than obvious.
