Career shift guidance from SAP Technical to Data Science


Hello Gurus,

I am a SAP Technical with 10+ years of experience and since all these years my job was always surrounded with all kind of Enterprise related Data, I would like to harness my existing knowhow of SAP as an ERP and move towards Data Science direction. One of my colleague who joined the current firm where I am working along with me is a Data Scientist and working for a major FMCG client and the Data which these people are working upon comes mainly from the SAP SD side only. So, these all instances made me think on this direction.

So my questions:

1. Has anyone got any luck in making such shift and if yes would you like to share your experience so that it would be helpful for people like me.

2. As a foundation for this shift I have enrolled for a related course in one of the major online platforms which guides on the basic concepts like Mathematics, Statistics etc needed for this field. And once this is done I am planning for 4 months course provided by various Universities in India which provide placement assistance as well. Has anyone tried like this ?

In the nutshell I want to know whether the decision I am making is a plausible one or not.
