A Few Updates About Me

Few updates about Me

I have not been very active in the blog for the past two months, but many things have happened to me in that time. I became a father of a wonderful baby girl and  a member of CIMA (UK). I also got  an attractive SAP job  and now I am attending a few SAP official trainings thanks to my new employer.

Becoming a father is wonderful experience and there is nothing in the world which I can compare it with. The name of my princess is Maya and she is a real cutie :). Anyway, every parent says the same thing for his/her children, so don’t be surprised :).

After 1 and half years I decided to complete my practical experience application for CIMA after passing 15 exams in the past few years. I could only say good things about CIMA which really helps me to get into the skin of every financial professional starting from every junior accountant to the CFO. So I am entitled to use designation letters ACMA and CGMA.

ACMA stands for Association of International Certified Professional Accountants and CGMA stands for Chartered Global Management Accountant. The CGMA designation letters are relatively new to CIMA, because they came from partnership between AICPA and CIMA. For those of you which are not familiar with AICPA, it means American Institute of Chartered Public Accountants.

I got a new job in the beginning of January. My new role is being  a SAP BPC Analyst in a Shared Service Center of a leading global company. Thanks to my employer I am able to attend expensive SAP trainings which will definitely help me with my work.

So more or less from now on I will also cover topics about SAP BPC 10.0 and 10.1 on HANA. I decided to get into BPC, because I think it fits many of my skills and knowledge developed in the last 10+ years. Probably I could write more detailed post about my decision why I decided to switch to BPC.

The few following posts will be regarding building a relatively cheap SAP HANA home training server. I will use it for sharing videos and guides regarding SAP BPC, Business Suite, Business Objects and others powered by SAP HANA.

  3. Hello Emiliyan,

    I recently did a career change and started fresh as a trainee in FICO . I left my previous experience as a Financial Planning Analyst to pursue a career in SAP and I am looking for some guidance on how to proceed. I am inclined on BPC as I feel it can be related to my domain experience and also HANA, however I am still in the leaning curve and trying to get my basic right in FICO. Please help me on the approach.


  4. HI Kishore,

    There is not a single correct answer to this question. It really depends on the career options you have or may have. I think for a FP&A guy BPC suits better then FICO, but you will have to have good understanding in FICO for sure.

    You will also need to develop BW skills as well in addition to BPC as those will be demanded in the projects if you have more responsible role. So starting with BPC, report writing, model creation, business rules and so, on and then you could move to BW.
