SAP (OR ANY ERP SOFTWARE) 

Do any BA's out there have roles as Project Manager's or Implementation specialists? I'm from the PM background but am looking to get into the BA role and just trying to grasp what skills of mine will crossover and what skills won't.

Do BA's work in this role as a consultant for ERP software implementation for company's? Am I grasping at straws here?

Thanks and I love this forum.

Yes tge BA can be into implementation if he has Technical background.

Re: SAP (OR ANY ERP SOFTWARE) 

Hi DataFriend,

Yes I know of individuals who have become BAs from either role. Many PM skills cross over, in particular planning for activities and soft skills for elicitation and people management.

There are usually BAs on ERP implementations - I've never seen an ERP be deployed out of the box. Getting the requirements to customize the solution is pretty typical.

It’s 4:30 pm on Friday and Mr. Manager comes along to tell you that he needs you to run some important ad-hoc analysis for him. Previously this meant having to stay late at the office, writing cumbersome queries to extract business information from transactional data. Lucky for you, you’ve recently started using Temporal Tables in SQL...
