    It depends, as an ABAP programmer or someone that is a functional expert?

    Anywhere from $50,000 starting off, all the way up to $200,000 for all stars depending on the niche and expertise.

    There's a lot to SAP so if you're just someone handling basic tasks that someone else already setup, you're not going to make a lot. But if you're the person setting up all these things you can make a ton. I remember SAP at its peak (late 90s) the SAP guys were making $400-500k.

    Abapers don't make much, used to do that. Also I have seen entry level SAP programmers make much lees than 50k.

    Probably the big money nowadays is in BI and Analytics , tons of SAP projects in that area.

    I do remote geosteering work from Houston (guiding wells using LWD data (gamma), ROP data (rate of penetration), mudlogging observations, and known basin structure). I went to college and graduated with an undergraduate geology degree.

    Do you have a hard time finding people for your teams? Is there a skills gap in American employees as mentioned in mainstream media or is it just business trying to outsource jobs for cheap foreign labor? My buddy was laid off and worried about outsourcing to India for programming.

    In my experience, it is easy to find somebody with technical skills. However, it's another matter to find somebody that is a hard worker with deductive reasoning and problem solving skills. There are some great technically skilled people, but they are just technicians until they understand the business and risk issues($$$).
