(Systeme, Anwendungen, Produkte in der Datenverarbeitung or Systems, Applications, and Products for Data Processing)
The SAP product suite covers a broad range of functionality for everything from Business Intelligence and Corporate Performance Management to Finance, Human Resources, Supply Chain, Manufacturing, Operations, Sales, Marketing, and Service. In addition, SAP continuously releases new features and versions for 24 major industries and multiple sub industries to meet the system and business process demands of the global business community. As a result, there exists a plethora of micro SAP talent pools with a mosaic of specialized skills that are dynamic, constantly evolving and in high demand. Recently it was estimated that there were 5 SAP job openings for every 1 SAP professional.
As a result, our prospective clients frequently tell us that, while they can be bombarded with SAP resumes from a variety of sources, they still cannot find the talent with the right skill sets to meet their needs in a timely manner. This lack of timely access to SAP talent causes them to delay initiatives or rely on expensive contract talent. What’s more, they tell us that their hiring managers are spending precious time sorting through preventable recruitment issues such as skill set mismatches, inadequate technical screen results, incompatible interpersonal skills, and company culture concerns only to find that the professionals or executives they are really looking for still are not in their candidate pool.
That’s where iHs comes in.
At iHs, we understand that Information Technology organizations have a duty to ensure that their SAP systems and initiatives align well with their organization’s overall business strategy, and also achieve budget, operational, and service level objectives in ways that demonstrate the positive value of these investments. We also understand that having the right talent on board at the right time is critical to achieving these objectives. To this end, we continually invest in the development of our personal SAP networks through targeted research and participation in industry events and communities in the SAP space independent of our search engagements. As such, we maintain the industry’s leading, proprietary database of SAP professionals AND their preferences. What’s more, because our Principals have held positions such as Managing Director of the SAP practice at a global professional services firm and been responsible for leading the deployment and sustainment of SAP themselves, we deeply understand the needs of both our clients and prospective candidates. As a result, iHs brings its clients not only an unmatched ability to quickly identify and attract the rare talent they really need but also the expertise to properly evaluate it too.
The majority of our SAP searches last year were conducted for repeat clients. Clients who frequently tell us that we “get it” and we “nail it” for them.
