Please forgive me if this is not the right place to ask this question, but could not find any other forum, so posting it here. Apolozies in advance.
I have a friend who is an IT graduate who likes to talk and just talk. He is quite good at communication and often tells me that he wants to work as a consultant for an IT company where there is a lot of talking required rather doing coding or other technical things. When I searched on some job sites I came across that various types of consultancy jobs. For example this one on monster.co.uk site
It lists a lot of jobs for something called SAP Consultant. As far as I know SAP is an ERP package and that is all I am aware of. Is there any other ERP/CRM etc. kind of packages in the market that require these kind of consultants to sell them. What qualities one needs to become a consultant? If any body is experienced/professinal ERP/CRM consultant then I would like to hear from him/her. Thanks.
