    Hi Team,

    I have around 9 years of experience in end user computing (Application Packaging and Software Distribution using Microsoft SCCM tool). This comes under Infrastructure services\Support where in we deal with Creating Wrappers for applications and distributing them remotely to end users. If any issues with applications we will be providing support as well. So I don’t fall completely under System Administration and not completely into Application Support but my role overlaps both. My next career path would be moving as SCCM admin or be in the application virtualization side (Citrix or VMware). from the coding side I worked on Vb Scripting and AutoIT Scripting to Automate tasks or customize the user settings.

    I want to move to the SAP HANA now….so not sure which will be the right path to choose. Whether HANA Admin or HANA Modeler? Please suggest so that I can take the right step. Thanks.

    Your blog has very good content and I reached this page where most people think if they should get into HANA or Hadoop.
    I am an ABAP developer trying to get into Big data technologies, obviously HANA is the only platform where I have little knowledge since I am working on SAP.
    So, my question is.. Is getting into HANA is more easy for Database, BI developers only?
