It is exactly one year ago when I had the pleasure to accompany the first Your Business Process Expert Community is expanding rapidly ! during their launch at SAPPHIRE Atlanta and Vienna. Since then another 6 industries built their homes on BPX. This was a very important step forward for our community, because an industry focused discussion is fundamental to understand the detailed business needs and the traps in a business process definition.
I remember A New Higher Education and Research Community Has Been Launched in which he expressed his excitement about the new founded Higher Education & Research (HE&R) community and today we see a continuously growing number of peers sharing experiences and supporting each other in the SAP for Higher Education & Research .
There are many more evidences for the importance of industry-oriented collaboration like e.g. the Utilities Wiki where customers form Italy can find a description how they can implement Accise, a tax that the Italian authorities levy on gas consumption. Here they can contribute their own experiences and help to fine tune this how-to guide.
At SAPPHIRE Orlando we will extend to our industry family by two new industries: Professional Services and Travel & Logistics Services. Please join me in welcoming our new companions on BPX and stay tuned for more news from the industry space.
