Hi Everyone

I am not sure if this is the right place to put this thread but I would appreciate your feedback.

i have been a JAvA DEVELOPEr 3 years and have currently been doing XI from last year. Right now I found a CRM functional position in our company an i have put an application. This is a business analyst position and I will be eventually trained to be a CONFigurATOR. The company will spend money to send me to training..

however being a funcional i am worried I will be leaving my technical background alone..i will not be doing jAVA or

XI. I was wondering which would be a better decision in the long RuN. If I stay technical or go to the functional end given the opportunity. Any advices or insights will be

highly appreciated... or is it just to early to jump into functional

    I would like to extend my feedback of what I think regarding your issue. SAP is moving towards ESA architecture. Until now, most of the applications can be developed by technical people itself. But in an ESA architecture, most of the functionality will be out of box and exposed as webservices. In this landscape, a technical person cannot survive without a functionality. Hence, <b>if you are interested</b> you can very well go for functional domain. But don't think you programming skills will never be useful. It will help you one day.

    If you find the feedback which I gave, to be useful to you, just give some points 😉
