I am exploring ways to enter the SAP field and I would appreciate your suggestions in choosing between technical and functional areas of SAP.
I'm a computer engineering graduate with 10 years of experience in software development working as a Systems Architect (a SUN Certified Architect) and I'm also currently pursuing an MBA with finance management major, having long-term plan to move out of the technical line and into management.
I am bit confused whether to pick technical aspects of SAP or the functional area. I learned finance only as part of my MBA with some simulation exposure. I have no actual real-life experience.
I appreciate if you could throw some light in making choice between SAP technical or functional consulting. Which would would be better in regards to growth prospects and also better rates?
