I like the idea of Basis and SAP Security. And I applaud your strategy of taking advantage of your existing skills. Several questions in this batch emphasized wholesale career makeovers, and that's not the best way to break into SAP. The best way is your approach: "map" your current skills into SAP and see where the most relevant intersections are. Obviously, Basis work plays to your strengths, and the continuing expansion of SAP security work might be the specific opportunity you need to get your foot in the door. You may know this already, but as more and more companies are impacted by Sarbanes-Oxley compliance guidelines, security and authorizations takes on every more complexity and importance. Perhaps this can help you to hone your strategy further. Good luck!
