List of SAP Modules - keywords for SAP jobs/titles functional and technical

posted Nov 18, 2010, 1:04 PM by Cezar Maroti   [ updated Nov 28, 2010, 12:42 AM ]
In the recruitment world most of the people still use the "old" names of the SAP technologies.
In the recent years SAP AG has changed the names of the SAP Solutions.
This is why the old names of the modules are not so relevant anymore in the world of SAP implementation and upgrade project teams. 
But in the conversation with the recruiters they are still pretty useful.
I think that it could be interesting to have a list of all the components as they are still known by the IT and SAP recruiters.
Most of the SAP jobs will have some of these keywords in the title or in the description
