THE ITC SAP RECRUITERS REPORT - the European SAP jobs market (excerpts)
As in the US, there will be no return to the super-heated demand of the late ‘90's. Similar Client profit pressures, and the Boardroom's demands for budget reductions, will likewise continue to moderate European SAP (and naturally European SAP employment) activity.
SAP's very recent, but far clearer focus upon those applications delivering a more attractive ROI (SAP xApps, xPD, SRM, SCM, integration, and CRM functions) will help in the current tepid market. SAP opportunities will remain moderate, although more extensive for full-time SAP jobs in Europe. Strongest European SAP recruitment activity will be for such specialisations as SAP NetWeaver, AII, XI, Web Dynpro, BW, SAP xApps, SRM, SCM, mySAP ERP migration, mySAP PLM, Enterprise Portal, and SAP HR employment. Likewise, overall SAP employment opportunities increase for those with significant upgrade experience.
On-going modest demand through most of the year. Increasing demand in several select sectors.
Forecast/Market Accuracy Rating, through prior 24 months: Very High
