At any rate, I like your thinking about trying to use your Java/J2EE skills in an SAP environment. There are a couple of good reasons.
- I think you will find that work challenging and interesting -- enterprise-wide systems bring you more into the realm of techno-functional thinking and solving business problems.
- If you can tie your Java skills into a "mission critical," high transaction system like SAP, your Java skills will be worth more. I would estimate there is a $25 an hour premium if your Java skills are within an SAP environment. The challenge is breaking in.
