I would like to go for certification. Will it be helpful for me to grow my career?
Now, as for your question about Basis or ABAP, you could really pursue either direction. Since you are a developer, you may have a better chance on the ABAP side. But at the same time, the ABAP market remains very difficult due to the impact of offshore on rates and the number of available opportunities. Basis jobs are a bit easier to come by. But, you could still find success on the SAP development side -- especially if you expand your focus from ABAP to include a range of Web-based programming tools and techniques. Those skills will help you to stay marketable inside AND outside of SAP environments.
