I am ready for a career change and would like to break into SAP as a certified consultant in the NetWeaver area. I already bought a SAP XI book and I am going to pursue the development courses to become certifed as a SAP development consultant for XI.
I understand that this is more architecture than development. But I want to move away from development. So my question: Is NetWeaver or XI in high demand?
Of course, in the short term, you may have some trouble breaking in. It may be that the development side would generate more work for you in the short term. I would stay open-minded and try to find the area that fits best with your skills. With your data warehousing background, you might want to consider BW (now a part of BI) opportunities as well.
