Are XI skills in high demand?

We will soon introduce SAP XI during an mySAP CRM implementation. I will be heavily involved with SAP XI. Are XI skills likely to be in significant demand or will it remain just a niche skill?

I have a hard time believing XI will remain a "niche" skill because it is an integral part of SAP's next generation NetWeaver architecture. I think XI will be a very viable integration option for many SAP users. True, not many have embarked on XI projects yet, but I do think that XI is going to be an important part of the technical SAP toolkit. However, I would make sure that your XI skills are also centered on other marketable skills.
The XI-CRM combination is excellent, for example, because the mySAP CRM market is doing so well. So, I would feel good about pursuing XI, but hopefully in conjunction with other marketable areas. XI overlaps with so many areas of SAP that this seems like a viable plan for you.
