    I am assuming that they are running SAP on the IBM i as there is a very strong link between the hardware, OS and the SAP application. You do not say what your background on the IBM i is. If it is administration and they want to enhance your admin skills by adding the SAP administration function to that then this is a natural tie in and it will not only pay better but give you added windows of opportunity. If you are a developer in RPG or COBOL and they want you to learn C++ or Java or what ever language SAP uses then it will again enhance your skills and abilities and if your SAP environment runs on the IBM i platform then even better as you know and trust then underlying OS to keep everything working. Good luck with your choices Lovemyi

    Do your homework before you leap at the SAP program. WMS manhattan is also a progam for warehsouing inventory/ship/receive. My company recently made the switch from AS/400 to the SAP, and there are numerous wholes in the system. After spending 100k an additional 40k was spent do to tacking issures of material being lost in the system. this may not be the case for you but look before you leap.

    IMO, it depends on whether or not training is being made available, and whether or not you feel confident that you can go successfully in either direction. I would never argue against a decent training opportunity even if I saw no personal future in it. Every technology and methodology that you learn will return value to you. If the "opportunity" means that you will quit one job in order to take a different job, and you won't know what you're doing in the new job, then it's a major risk. Training would be an absolute requirement. It's not likely that you'll learn SAP through basic on-the-job experience unless the employer clearly understands that it's a true entry-level position. If it is, is the platform still AS/400 (or iSeries, etc.) or is it a completely different platform? Learning SAP and a new platform at the same time might be more than twice as difficult. Training will be that much more important. If training comes along with a paycheck, it's hard to argue to turn it down. If you have to do it on your own, only you can tell how good the idea is. Tom
