Global Survey for SAP NetWeaver Process Integration 2011

As one of its regular activities the International Focus Group for Integration performs a yearly survey for SAP NetWeaver PI. The survey was scheduled from April 14th to July 5th 2011 and was open for all users and companies using SAP NetWeaver PI or XI as an integration platform. The survey contained 21 general questions and 9 questions about this year’s focus topic monitoring.

As in the past, the survey results enable the GSIG to better address the needs of the PI users and serve as a basis to discuss further enhancements and product improvements with SAP. The results for 2011 will be published within the user groups that participate in the GSIG around August / September. Also watch out for the new SDN blog about the 2011 survey results planned for end of September/ beginning of October.

    What are the needs that you identified from last year’s survey?  I like the facts and figures.  But I was wondering about the result.

    Just curious,

      Last year’s major needs where in the areas of stability, connectivity and monitoring. The results helped us in the discussion with SAP, but also supported SAP’s internal management to justify development resources and budget. The survey influenced the new enhanced PI monitoring based on SAP Solution Manager 7.1 and SAP’s announcement to offer own B2B adapters for AS2 and SFTP in the near future.
