I require a little guidance towards a career in sap.

Just to brief....... I am currently a progress 4gl developer with 1 years experience but previous experience includes techincal support on windows and other applications. I have also gained experience through work experience where i have used web development technologies and languages including c++.

I have been doing alot of research into SAP and have found various comments as to what and what not to do.

I am based in the uk but need to know which area is the biggest the demand within SAP? I would like to have a role which involves doing hands-on work.

I read that ABAP's growth has declined escially with outsourcing.

Wheres the best point to start? as in to buy books ??

I look forward to your reply and hopefully it will help me decide my future career path.

    I would say a practical approach would be to analyse the job postings in your region to quantify those SAP profiles which are most in demand.  A search of job sites on the 'net mentioning SAP positions should do the trick?
