XI and Xmii
I have been doing XI for some time and came across a job asking for XI person to move onto xMii.
I've read a little about xMii but still do not understand what the relationship is between it and XI.
Is there one ? So wondering how much SAP XI skills you need in a xMii role ?

I think from what I have seen from my SAP XI colleagues that it is helpful to know something about mapping and using XML and XPATH (maybe XLST but not first place). Of course it always helps to have experience in using a middleware tool for connection and mapping tasks.
However, if you start with MII, I would recommend to have a formal education to learn about the new or different concepts of MII compared to XI (MII business logic, MII portal, visualization and User Interface etc.). MII is no native SAP product but bought in from a US company, so the user interface to MII for developers needs getting used to.
Maybe you find the following links useful.
