I have 13 plus years of Microsoft development experience with VB, .NET, SOA, Web services, architecture, business analyst, security, Web development, portals, stand-alone Windows applications and mobile applications. I have done integration of Peoplesoft to .NET for one of my clients. I have also worked on SAP portal iViews using the Microsoft.NET PDK (Portals Development Kit). I was also involved in a CRM intialization project for a client.
I just recently expanded my skill set to include SAP XI. I am reading SAP XI books to enhance more in the area. Having no SAP XI implementation experience, would I be able to make a switch into SAP XI?
I'd appreciate your input.
What's nice about your background is that you have other experience in SAP, including the PDK. A combination of Portals and XI skills could take you a long way. You may also want to consider learning more about iViews, and maybe even some BW development also. Learning more about the NetWeaver development platforms (particularly the NetWeaver Development Studio) could help you also. What you're looking for is a diverse set of technical skills that will allow you to fill the jobs that are hotter now (BW, Portals) but also put you in a good position for future SAP positions involving .NET, XI, and other areas.
