As I said, career growth depends on what you do for a job. Whether you are fortunate or chose well, it sounds like you happen to be deploying the toolset of a company that is a leader in information management, and who will participate strongly in defining how information management is shaped in the next decade. Congratulations there. Also, let's face it, many end-user companies branch out within a software company's toolset, providing you opportunities to broaden into other areas. Well-roundedness across the information management spectrum is good for a career and it seems your company would have some good tools to do that with.
As for how well you do your job and who you do it for, you need to coldly assess that for yourself. If you choose to change companies, it would be good to have the breadth that gives you flexibility in your search. Good luck.
