Our company is currently implementing SAP BPC and BO

I was given the opportunity to take some training but I am not sure which way to go about it.

I have 8 years of mostly ABAP experience with web dynpro(and some java and other OO languages). I am quite interested in BO for the fact that it integrates with 3rd party software/DBs and I dont have to be tied to SAP till eternity.

But at the same time, I have some reservations going the BO way because of my many years of ABAP experience which I think BW will suit me better in the short term( less learning curve).

Can someone who has been in my shoes provide some insight into my future?

One of the reasons I am leading more towards BO is for the fact that HANA will provide most of the BW functionality build into it in the future. This argument alone makes me hesitant to invest myself in BW at this time.

Also , does BO have much to do with SAP BPC? I hear is that most of the development work will be done in EXCEL and BW? is this true? will there be need for BO developer?
