So it's been almost a month since I started working for infineon (hutranz). And to day the least, it's been great. Work load is definitely less. The people have been great, nice and accommodating. Better yet is the increase in pay coming from IBM (encora).
The career jump also serves and paves the way for me to get into a specialization. Sap solution manager is not really a specialization per se, but with the small number of people who have knowledge working on it, well it elevates Solman knowledge to a specialty. XI, CRM, BI, portal etc are more of the specialization category. But Solman is becoming a must to be a whole basis/netweaver consultant.
I was planning to take up some certification this December, but due to travel plans, I will have to postpone
