Hi ,

I am working in a renowned Organization,nad i was trained in Basis 6 months back.

I worked on a project in Sap _ basis and Security in 3 months and its been a complete year that i am learning Basis,Now i am getting a Project in which My skill would be ABAP.

Seeking suggestions my Tl says that Abap would be agreat future.

Coming to my interest i can work in both and it will take me a months time to get into Abap.

But thinking from the career prospective Abap will ruin my entire 1 year contributed to Basis.

Please suggest from Career Prospective what should i go for?

Should i raise a Concern that my entire one year knowlwdge of Basis would not stand anywhere if i switch to Abap.

Please suggest asap.

since you already working on BASIS and got good knowledge on BASIS. i suggest you to go with BASIS only.

you can grow in career with BASIS also. if you search in any jobs website you can find lot of jobs on BASIS.

finally i suggest you to go with BASIS.

You have worked on system admin side (Worked on Basis), and t the same you trained on "Security" also. i would like to suggest continue in this and touch the "breadth" of this model. If you are interested, concentrate on mostly "security",

net weavers and portals integrations like that.

Coming to "ABAP" which is is complete programming language, where you can tight your hands with only "Programs" (Perhaps, With different logic's). But i can say strongly, its very powerful language.

All the best.
