I started my SAP career as an ABAP developer and with due course have migrated towards SD functional support person
in a span of three years. My current profile is about 80% functional skills and 20% technical. If I have to grow further in the SD side, is it best to do my SAP certification in the SD module and then try for a full-time assignment in SD module?
The only thing you might want to do is to consider skipping over SD entirely and going right for SAP CRM. SD skills are still marketable, but SAP CRM is having a very good year; and since it's been around a lot less longer than SD, you won't have to compete against functional consultants with eight to 10 years of experience.
