Jon Reed has been publishing SAP career and market analysis for more than a decade. He is the author of the popular SAP Consultant Handbook, and he serves as the "Ask the Expert" on SAP careers for SearchSAP. Throughout the industry's ebbs and flows, thousands of SAP professionals have tracked the SAP market through Jon's commentary. Jon focuses on providing SAP professionals with straight-shooting analysis on how SAP market trends are impacting SAP career choices. The SAP Career Trends podcast series balances a look into the future of SAP with a focus on uncovering the next steps SAP consultants can take for SAP career success. The series also looks at how SAP companies and project teams manage the "human side of SAP implementations" and tackle the challenges of change management and address the cultural issues that must be addressed on global rollouts. Jon and his guests also look at SAP implementation "best practices" and the keys to attracting and retaining SAP talent on project sites. This podcast series covers the scope of the SAP product line, from core SAP ERP to the add-on suites in CRM, SRM, PLM, SCM, and other areas. The transition from a transactional system to a true business process platform is examined closely, with attention to the impact of SAP BI (Business Intelligence). Jon and his guest approach SAP from a broad view that includes an assessment of both the functional and technical aspects of SAP and how they are changing as companies upgrade to the latest versions of the software. Attention to SAP in the midmarket and a look at SAP's push towards hosted solutions is also considered. The ultimate goal of the SAP Career Trends podcast series is to provide SAP professionals with a roadmap they can use to anticipate SAP market trends and ensure that their skills remain in demand in the NetWeaver and eSOA era.
