SAP Jobs Salary range
SAP Jobs Salary

Let's Discuss on SAP JOBS salary comparison at worldwide with real picture:
We have discussed on my blog why SAP Jobs Salary is higher than other functional jobs. But like every other jobs here also the hike depends on many variables, experience , your location, education level, as well as the location of the company you work for and the industry type you are in.

A very good and vast research has been done by panayainc.com on SAP salary worldwide, let’s find some of those real facts.

  • The salary of SAP professionals in North America is 25% higher than in Europe and those working in Europe is getting 35% higher than Asia or other parts of the World.
  • SAP Jobs Salary trend is much higher for high revenues companies, the partners and integrators than the companies using SAP or SAP clients.
  • The survey found that the education level is playing a great role in salary hike or SAP jobs.


The World’s uncertain economic environment for last few years seems to have a mixed effect on the salaries expectations of SAP professionals worldwide:
  • Among 8000 SAP professionals 62% got an increase in their 2011 earnings compared to 2010, and for trend to get more frequent Increases were more common for SAP professionals working for companies based in Asia (66%), Latin America (67%), European (57%), and American companies (61%).
  • And more about 65% employees (SAP Professionals) are Looking ahead to 2012, to have an increase in their salaries.



  • Company and Job Characteristics:

  • SAP Professionals come from SAP clients or SAP partners. Among 805 individuals the majority of the survey respondents (55%) come from companies that run their own business on the SAP system. (43%) from SAP partners.

    • And if you compare the 2 company types “SAP Jobs Salary range” or “average salary SAP” you will get to know SAP pay scale for employees of SAP partners/integrators is (4%) higher than the average salary SAP of those working for SAP customers or SAP using Companies.
      Which is just opposite than the same survey result on 2011
      We can have a look at the below chart for the SAP Jobs or SAP recruitment in world wide.  39% d in North America, while 33% for European companies. 28% for companies based in other parts of the world.
      The salary of SAP professionals in North America is 25% higher than in Europe and those working in Europe is getting 35% higher than Asia or other parts of the World


      On the other side 51% work in organizations that have more than 50 SAP professionals. Over a third (36%) work for organizations that have more than 100 SAP professionals.


      Job Function, Experience, Gender, Education
      As normal, the most earned professionals are in director and manager positions, But the difference of the highest earning position (ERP or Application Director) is as much as 75% higher than SAP Super User. Bellow we can find the salary range and sap salary package of the various SAP Jobs positions like:

      • SAP Project Managers Salary
      • SAP consultant salary
      • SAP functional consultant salary
      • SAP senior consultant salary
      • SAP Technical Consultants Salary
      • SAP Programmer salary
      • SAP Trainer Salary
      • SAP Super users Salary
      • SAP Users Salary
      • SAP salary for fresher’s
      • SAP starting salary



      All the SAP jobs salary range depends on job experience levels. The SAP average salary range for respondents with more than 10 years of experience is 44% higher than for those with 1-6 years of experience.
      In SAP salary range for women or female are not that much difference than men. But female should get encouragement as because the first 1-6 years shows higher salary for SAP jobs salary for female or women than men.
      Obviously as expected higher education corresponds higher earnings for SAP professional’s salary range.

      Our survey respondents have some insightful advice for advancing your SAP career:

      1. Get certified
      2. Understand the business side
      3. Develop your communication skills
      4. Keep up to date with new technology
      5. Be flexible and open to change

      According to the survey, project management (49%) are the most important for securing higher pay and additional job options and about other on the row are business function expertise (38%), communication (34%) skills  and analytical (37%).

    SAP hardware sizing/requirements and cost saving.


    SAP Hardware
    SAP Hardware

    SAP Hardware Sizing by
    *Next Upcoming Post: SAP S4HANA Hardware Sizing- How to build worlds most cost effective hardware for S4HANA on premise editions.

    SAP hardware requirements Calculation for right size SAP hardware.

    • What is the right hardware or how to choose hardware for SAP
    • SAP hardware requirements
    • what is SAP hardware sizing
    • SAP hardware upgrade
    • SAP saps to cpu converter
    • Cost of SAP hardware
    • SAPs vs CPU core or socket
    • SAP saps calculation or SAP saps cpu
    • SAP saps

    SAP Sizing and Choosing a Hardware to save you cost.

    A lot of the companies invest huge in buying right hardware for their SAP to run. I know lots of companies having SAP license but not going for implementation because of the implementation cost is huge. And one of the main expense is hardware expenses. Most interestingly most of the companies are not aware of the right hardware. If you analyze you will find most of the small and medium size companies having SAP installed hardware are less than 25% resource use. That is it’s a west of your invest. SAP has certified about 100 Three-Tier systems and 724 Two-Tier systems worldwide benchmark. For any new hardware for any SAP implementation or migration is a huge invest and sounds like a lot. So choose right hardware is a challenging part definitely. I will try to describe based on my experience and SAP’s guideline. click here for sample benchmark

    The first we need to know our scope in details, lets summaries as on the bellow questions which will help you to make your scope well defined and fixed.

                                  1. What are the SAP components you are going to use?
                                  2. How many users for each server (Development, Quality, Production, Solman etc
                                  3. Which hardware platform you like to use, UNIX or x86?

    I think if you have the answer on those 3 questions than you can start for SAP QUICK SIZER to know sap SAPS benchmark after that you can go for hardware vendor. Let’s analyze how we can get those questions answers:
    01. Most common component now a days is SAP ECC 6.0 and may have some other add-ons for example AFS. You may use SAP Solution manager, BI, BOBJ, PI etc. here I will discuss about the main component SAP ECC 6.0 so that you can get the bigger picture.

    02. Hmm. This is a tricky question. I have seen lots of companies misunderstood this count. They count as many as employees they have all will be SAP named users. But the truth is you have to consider only the users who will be directly needs to use SAP. Suppose in your organization you have 1000 employees among them only 600 will need to enter data in SAP and use SAP to have reports. And moreover it depends on what are the module you are taking, suppose among the 1000 employees 200 are HR and 300 for production department but you are not taking HR and PP module so those users will not come under SAP users. A easy count I understand is that the number of Employees you have count 40% to 50% for next 3 or 4 years.

    03. Here is another chance of banging your head. In market there is a perception is that UNIX system performs better that x86 systems. You have only 3 companies produce UNIX based hardware IBM, HP, SUN for their UNIX OS.

    04. But do you know at what point you should consider UNIX? Or should you consider UNIX at all?

    05. SAP Products or components can be scale out by Application server, so why you will go for UNIX socket scale up?

    SAP Benchmark ? SAP has tested most of them are UNIX and those are about 3 to 4 years in age, so now a days you cant get those system In the market. And for core per processor count both UNIX and x86 is having up to 16 core/processors. So you can consider less socket now with most cores.

    Lets analyze the core with SAPs count. I believe you will get interest here. A general term is the performance is depending on core. So more core more performance. Do you know how many SAPs can deliver per core? If we analyze the SAP’s benchmark data we will get the bellow picture which shows x86 processors delivers more than 1400 SAPs per core and UNIX processors delivers about 1400 SAPs per core.

    So that’s the point to calculate or choose your right hardware. So if you need 4000 SAPs you can choose 1 CPU with 4 core or 2 processors with 2 core. Got shocked? Yes it’s the secret which your hardware vendor will not tell you, they will force to buy the latest costly hardware. Now it your call to choose the right hardware and cut the SAP hardware cost for implementation and migration.

    For more information on SAP Benchmark on Hardware: www.sap.com/benchmark


    For perfect SAPs to CPU or IOPs convert always get 75% of your total core multiply by 1400 SAPs. As the bellow table:


    Check the model detail on website :

    The hardware here i have given in example is the sample. so please choose your hardware by your need.

    Don’t worry my calculation is having proof here:
    For 500 SAP Named Users Licenses is having 7800 SAPS.  the SAPs Calculation is as bellow from SAP Quick Sizer:

    If you have add-ons component with SAP ECC than you can flow SAP's document for extra SAPs count like the bellow example: AFS Sizing - https://websmp104.sap-ag.de/sizing

    Her is the guide tells what to do to add 40% of your total SAPs count to run AFS smoothly:

    I will write another blog about SAP SAPs calculation…..

    In each fiend quality is the tune. Without quality training and education it’s impossible to make skill manpower. Same to SAP training also. SAP is having domination or monopoly of the education to a extent, but the cost and availability makes it impossible to avoid the unauthorized training centers which raised in demand of the people. Those training centers are not authorized that doesnt mean then they cant provide the quality education or training. Only thing they cant give is the authorized certificate but they are delivering rapid skill manpower.
