Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

One of the large business analysis software packages out there is called SAS. It’s a rather large software package but it’s used often for risk analysis as well as other data analysis.

    You would likely need these skills if you wanted to move into Web Systems administration, but not stay in your current role. The advice you recieved isn't bad advice, just not exactly what you've stated here. Remember, it's always good to look toward your next career. Basically, you may dig in and find that another similar career may interest you a little more and have a higher salary ceiling... all important things when you're the breadwinner like it sounds you and I are. good luck!
