I’m currently doing a survey on how SAP XI/PI/PO developers started. The survey is still in progress, but I would like to share one interesting result with you.
There are currently 89 responses, collected in one week. I will evaluate the survey next week, so please help out by responding to the questions. I can see most people spend around 5 minutes completing the survey.
One question that I have asked is how many years of experience you have with SAP XI/PI/PO. And the responses were diverse, as shown below.
This question received 59 responses. Of those 59 responses 7 or 11.9% indicated less than one year of experience. Most respondents had between four and eight years of experience.
This means that the product is quite mature, and the developers have a lot of experience with these tools.
Obviously, there might be some issues regarding those who had completed the survey. Most of the people on the server are persons from one of my email lists or followers of their community. It is possible that the responses were not given only by new followers of the SCN community.
I do find it interesting that people stick with their SAP PI/PO skill. Normally for a developer a few years is enough before moving on to other areas. But for SAP PI we have a lot of people with more than five years of experience. This is great because customers can expect to receive the services of experienced consultants and developers.
For us developers it’s also interesting that it makes sense to stay in the community, because we can still learn. Obviously, there are jobs for us as well – this must mean that the tool is good and it’s being widely used by customers.
To all those working with SAP PI/PO: I hope you could help me out with the survey. That way we can get even more responses on how people learn SAP PI/PO.
Currently there are 85 responses, in just one week. The responses are anonymous and I will only be posting general information and feedback from the survey, therefore I will not disclose your level of engagement with SAP PI.
