Career Transition

Hi All,

I am in a kind of biggest career dilemma. I am from Java background. I have been a Java developer for last seven years and especial for last 4 years I have been working in the field of mobility as Android developer.
There is a big shuffle going on where I work and I have been asked to choose one of the following options.

1. Oracle practice
2. Seibel
3. SAP
I have some assumptions which might be wrong we well. Java is some how connected with Oracle and Seibel (Oracle took over Seibel in 2005). But there is no relationship between Java and SAP.

I am not able to make up my mind. I have no idea which one would be most relevant for person from Java. Or is this career transition suicidal career wise. Please help me choose.

Any kind of answer, pointer would be greatly appreciated.

Awaiting the answers.

Umm, what? Have you googled "Java SAP"? SAP even has (or used to have) its own JVM. It looks to me like the relationship of JAVA to SAP is very similar to the relationship of {any random CRM or ERP system, e.g. Oracle or Siebel} to Java. Do you have specific reasons to think otherwise?

Yeah... There might be scenarios where Java module interacts with SAP modules. Just like most of the other CRM and ERP. But I don't know anything beyond that. I am novice to the field of ERPs. That's why I need some guidance here.
I agree. Here's the link:
