Siebel CRM – I wish I knew !

A lot of time when we look at the things that we have done in past we get a feeling that If I would have known a few things earlier I could have done a lot of things in a different and better way.

This is specially true in case of Siebel, being a specialized technology there aren’t many people who can guide us in right direction. When I started in Siebel everything was a blur for me. I had absolutely no idea, what siebel is all about? what choices do I have?
I had to learn things gradually from my experience through my mistakes and I of course my luck. I was lucky enough to be put in Siebel EAI and had intresting assignments and most important of all I wanted to do it, but there were others not so lucky on whom the choices were thrust upon because they had absolutely no information to base their choices upon.

Through this article I would like to spread the awareness of the choice that we have when we enter the world of siebel, different aveneus that we can explore .

So, that we can take our own decision based on our interest and taste rather than sitting back and let somebody else make the choice for us.
According to my knowledge following are the major functional areas in siebel from which you can choose to specialze.

Each area has its own Pros and Cons. I will enabling links once the detail information is put on that particular area and also I will aslo be putting in comments from my friends and colleges working on siebel in these particular domains. From the areas metioned above Siebel Configuration and Siebel Scripting are the areas that you need to have basic knowledge. They can be considered as a kind of must to progress in any area of siebel development.

  7. CRM as of today is the only way to keep pace with the changing facets of economy. i say this because these days companies look at existing clients more than aquiring new clients to enhance their profits. With this in mind companies look at a total crm solution to have a customer centric approach between corporates. This is why they invest in crm when the volumes are large and it certainly makes a mark in the value chain.

    I would say that after the acquisition of siebel by oracle, siebel has a better opporunity to touch base with big ERP solution users mainly because oracle is the world’s 2 largest erp solutions provider. i beleive this acquistion will open better doors for oracle in the CRM platform
