A client has just been on the blower and wants me to do technical interviews, over the phone, tomorrow afternoon, on some of you lot (i.e. fellow contractors), for a SAP Architect post.

Need some questions!

Thanks in advance.

Do you know anything about SAP?

If not, why in the hell are you doing it? How absurd if this is the case.

To advise you, I'll need a lot more detail. Send me a pm. SAP keep changing their definitions. As far as I'm aware, at the moment, technical architect means "Basis". But again, that's got more complicated recently.

Ask them what SAP stands for. Catches most out every time.

ABAP originally stood for Allgemeiner Berichts-Aufbereitungs-Prozessor. Or, in English, Common Report Analysing Processor.

Well, that was relatively painless.

What I did was ask each of them to give me a good questions to filter for the best SAP architects, and then to answer them.

Respect due, it was you who gave me the idea!

Worked very well, 'cause if I knew the answer, then it weren't a good enough question. ;)

i guess if I was in your position,

I would start with an open philosophical question like in a .Net environment as Architect of these .Net components where would you begin with planning an implementation, and then from their answers I would just dig and dig and dig into their answers to the point where they cannot answer to see what they know like, how would you do that, how would you do that etc right down to nuts and bolts level of the design and implementation, sizing, capacity, disk space, installation, network, dns, high availability, integration, maintenance etc, why this, why that, how this, how that

the one who knows it will be able to just keep answering the one who is blagging will ultimately get stuck and hit a brick wall
