    As Phanikumar Valiveti already pointed out, it all depends on what you are interested in.
    Still, if you are looking for something, which will fit S/4 HANA, then SAP WM does not make much sense - in the simplifications list for version 1610 it is mentioned, that The Warehouse Management (LE-WM) is not the target architecture anymore within SAP S/4HANA and that the alternative is SAP EWM. If you don't have already access to a S/4 system or to a EWM environment in your company, learning EWM will be realy tough: even if you can afford to purchase some good books, you still need to practice, and the official SAP trainings can be expensive, unless your employer agrees to cover the fees at least partially. I am actually considering EWM as one of my future areas for improvement, but the main problem is that most of the big companies have already invested huge amounts in external warehouse systems, which they won't be willing to discard in favour of EWM - the competition is really tough in that area. Most likely, who already has an external warehouse system, will continue interfacing with it after the transition, instead of switching to EWM.
    I believe, LE is a good choice with and without S/4 HANA, and usually SD consultants are expected to know LE. Still, DSD (which is a nice thing to have in certain projects) is yet to be supported (on the roadmap).
    GTS and CRM are good choice, even though this is very different from what you currently deal with, but you need a system to practice.
    FI is huge! If you have some accounting background, if you like that kind of stuff, if you are willing to invest a lot of time into it - then yes. On top of that, if you have some FI knowledge, it will be easier to learn FSCM, which will be used more in S/4, than now: for example, configuring SAP Credit Management.
    If I were in your position, I would probably try to expand my knowledge in various localization topics (at least you can do that in the sandbox your company has built, plus there are good sources of information in SAP notes), EDI and workflow (both are mature, but quite relevant and useful everywhere).

    Dear Atanu Datta

    It completely depends on your choice & Interest.

    There are other new modules like Simple Sales,Simple Logistics & simple Finance by keeping your S/4 HANA demand..

      Thank You very much for your suggestion.

      I have interest on SAP Sales and Distribution because I have worked on it. I don't have more knowledge on S/4 HANA platform. I need some clarification on below questions.

      Is Simple Sales is same as SAP SD ECC6.0 module?

      Is SAP SD is available in S/4 HANA ? If yes what is the module name?
