I haven't seen BI and XI together much lately, but I could see that combination work well. I have seen the XI and MDM combination from time to time, but we have yet to see an explosion of MDM job orders. One thing I find is that you don't have to worry too much about chasing something to mix with XI. All you really need to do is work on as many XI projects as you can, and go naturally towards the areas that you are asked to master. For example, what if you decide to pursue BI and XI, but the work you are asked to do involves Portals and XI? Therefore, it pays off to not get too theoretical about what makes the best skills mix. A better idea is to let your project work lead the way.
And of course, the more phone calls you get from recruiters about a particular skill you have, the more you should pursue it. If you let the market decide, you will almost always make a good choice for your skills choice.
