I just crossed over 50 Million skillpoints. A few months ago at 40 million, I asked the question; Now what? I wasn’t sure what direction to go. I was pretty much at the point of diminishing returns for training towards my playstyle and preferred ship.
So what did I end up doing? Well, I added 3M skillpoints to scanning to max out everything but Astrometic Acquisition. I added 1.6M skillpoints to Navigation maxing out everything but MicroJump Drives and Warp Drive Operation. I added about 1M skillpoints to Armor. From there it was a mix-match of other things (a few drone skills, e-war skills, rigging, targeting, etc).
With what I trained I can fly a passable Stratios/Astero and my fitting skills are pretty much maxed out. So now I can start training other ships and weapons systems. I remapped to Perception/Willpower at 48M skillpoints (my first remap on this character since my initial remap a few months after creation). I am focusing on getting an Arty Loki and from there I will probably branch out to other Cruisers and a variety of ships. I will also pick up Advanced Weapons Upgrades V and possibly take my Heavy Assault Missile Specialization to V.
Here is my current skill breakout (rounded to nearest 100k) with some commentary.
Armor 1 500 000: Up from 400 000. I maxed out Repair Systems & Hull Upgrades and took the Armor Comp & Layering skills to IV.
Corporation Management 1 000: No change
Drones 1 900 000: Up from 1 400 000. I took a bunch of skills to IV (including Heavy and Sentry Drones)

Engineering 3 400 000: No change
Gunnery 1 200 000: Up from 500 000. I took Gunnery to V and and working on Medium Projectile Turret V.
Missiles 9 700 000: No Change.
Navigation 3 900 000: Up from 2 300 000. I was nicely mapped to support Nav skills so I took advantage before remapping. I maxed everything but MicroJump Drives and Warp Drive Operation.
Neural Enhancement 200 000: No Change

Scanning 5 900 000: Up from 2 900 000. I now am maxed out on strength and deviation with Astrometic Pinpointing and Rangefinding to V. I only took Acquisition to IV, I just couldn’t justify the days required to save a second.
