Confusion for switching my career from IT Infrastructure Management to SAP Basis or not?

Former Member

Hi Guru's,

I am in IT Infrastructure Management and I have more than 10 years of working experience in multiple companies. I have completed MCA, BCA, CCNA and ITIL and in my last job I was Sr. Manager IT.

I started my career as a Customer Support Engineer in 2004 and then promoted as a Network Engineer and then Team Leader and then Project Manager and then Asst. Manager IT and finally Sr. Manager IT. I switched 6 companies (ISP,IT,Pharmaceutical, Education etc.). Unfortunately my field demands lot of hard-work and payed very little(I got only 5 lac pa) on the other hand I saw several people who moved in SAP they get higher salaries and growing rapidly.

I have good knowledge of system administration and network administration. In 2008 to 2011, I worked for a Pharma company(Production Plant) where I saw SAP implementation and was little involved in it. I was involved in client Installation, SAP Solution Manager roll-out etc. I saw SAP basis syllabus and I feel it is easy for me to learn the BASIS fast rather then other SAP modules.

Now my questions are:-

Is it worthwhile for me to switch my career in SAP Basis?

Will the recruiters consider me as a fresher or they consider my experience?

What is the future growth in SAP Basis with our without certification?

Which is the best institute to get the training and job placement?

Your suggestions are appreciable.

Yours faithfully,
