I am a Banker with an experience spanning almost 5 years in Corporate Sales/Acquisition and Servicing. Besides, my Educational qualifications encompass a Bachelor of Business Administration (3years) and a 2 year Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration (Marketing and Finance)
Now, at this point I am willing to take a turn in my Career prospect and make a switch to an ERP (SAP or as you would suggest..) based profile. I would prefer to keep my Banking Experience ie.Domain Knoweldge handy in the new switch.
A little about my Current Profile - I am a Assistant Manager for Business Banking, i.e. my Roles and Responsibilities primarily deal with the Credit Appraisal, Banking Operations, Forex and Risk Management and majorily functioning on Acquisition of High Net Worth Corporate Clients and servicing the same. In a nutshell it deals with Frontline Sales and Servicing aspects (Client Relationship Management) in Bank. I also have operational experience with the Front End Banking Application 'Finacle' as it is the prime application upon which most of the Banks work.
Now, I do not have any core functional experience in ERP, and this might be a Fresh Start, but here I would be grateful if you could suggest a pathway via which I could work on ERP in the Banking domain.
What I need to know is -
1. Is it actually feasible for someone with my experience to make a switch to such an avenue as ERP?
2. If Yes, then what are the tools (Training / Certification etc..) necessary for equipping myself to make this transition from a Core Sales or Operation profile in a Bank to a more ERP based Analytical one (preferably in a Banking Domain)?
3. Whether there is any avenue other than SAP, for example BI, Analytics, IS - Banking (whatever that is), which might be more suited for my profile.
Will be much grateful for you replies and insights. Am really looking forward to a move.
Thanks & Regards,
