Why are you spreading false rumours may bw your ABAP skills and other SAP skills are in stone age. IBM is heavily hiring new SAP developers.

Reducing SAP support is a bad idea, Large corporations are 100% tied into SAP, trying to do even little things like enhancement packs or heaven forbid an S4 migration of an up an running system is a huge undertaking, it's VERY disruptive. DevOps and silly web apps are nice and they make for exciting power points, but they don't run a business or close quarters.

I think SAP will regret this decision, as will IBM.

Prob is competing with people from India who can afford to work for 1/4 less due to the cost of living. They rotate here, work six months, go back and live like kings where houses cost 5k and you can feed a family for 50 bucks a month.

ABAP, SQL, JAVA, are also old code going the way of the dinosaur. Coding is less important now with applications doing the heavy lifting.

In my opinion, an abap developer with deep industries knowledge is very marketable.
