skill set requirements for SAP E-Sourcing and CLM
We are about to implement SAP-E-Sourcing 5.1 and CLM 2.0 (on Netweaver Platform). What are the skill sets required to support and do enhancement and customization to this solution?.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Velu -
E-Sourcing technical consultants will require SQL skills if you are developing custom reports. The E-Sourcing query and reporting tools utilize "annotated" SQL statements the result in a SQL query being executed against the relational database. It is also useful for the report developer to have skills specific to the DBMS being used (for example, Oracle skills) - often times, using DBMS specific SQL constructs can provide improved reporting.
The E-Sourcing workflow capabilities also utilize BeanShell, so if you plan to implement any workflows, you will also require such technical skills.
Many other features of E-Sourcing such as user interface customization can be done with less technical individuals. Programming is not required.
Hope this is helpful.
