I am having 8 years of exp in Mainframe and I want to do Hadoop or SAAS. Is it a right choice for me to learn Hadoop? Or shall I go into SAAS ?

Please help me!!.

Hi Dev,
Welcome to the Ranch!

For Hadoop, you can learn and write Pig scripts to run Map-Reduce jobs. Pig script is quite easy to pick up, so, you can start quickly on that.

Your option of SAAS has a broad meaning. You can build a SAAS application with a variety of technologies. You should choose one and work on that.

If someone asks me this, then I'll find out the background experience that person has. A mainframe expert like you would be proficient in dealing with batch centric jobs. As Ranganathan put it, SAAS has a broad meaning.
In my opinion, mapreduce and big data management has got more in common with mainframe people than cloud centric environment.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
