returning to SAP after a long break

Hi

In a past life I was a SAP Basis administrator and later on a consultant with over 10 years experience of SAP R2 / R3. I've done quite a few installations and upgrades working with windows / oracle, AIX & Infomix to name but a few. However 10 years ago I took a completely different career path with a very big company and whilst staying in IT I left SAP behind. How much has the basis side changed? Does SAPDBA even exist anymore? Would you think it possible for me to move back into SAP given the break I had?

Kind Regards
Tarka

moving this in the SAP Basis forum

A lot has changed in 10 years.

SAPDBA was replaced by BRTOOLS
Informix is dead

This being said, it could be possible to come back. take a junior Basis job to start out with. you should be able to get adapt your knowlege to the new stuff in about 6 mnths.
