Why not pursue an area of SAP that you can make a contribution to from day one? This makes your background more appealing to potential employers. It's true that SAP CRM is a bit hotter of a market than SAP SRM, but your skills tend to match up a little better with SRM, and there are plenty of consultants doing very well in SRM. I think you would be successful in either area, so it makes sense to pursue what is out there. I like your thinking about taking your current knowledge and leveraging it in an ERP environment. I don't see any reason why you couldn't do that. As always, the biggest challenge is landing that first project. I frequently answer questions on breaking into SAP in this Ask The Expert feature, so check out some of the previous answers for more on this.
