As you are completing your SAP TechEd conference filled with the many great educational and hands on sessions, consider including one or more of the ASUG Influence Council sessions for business intelligence (BI) and enterprise information management (EIM) in your schedule. 

The ASUG Influence sessions are planned to be interactive and discussion-oriented, and some will include presentations from SAP about future product and roadmap direction. This is a unique opportunity for you to give feedback to SAP about current product development and help SAP shape a strategy for the future. SAP welcomes input from all users at these sessions, so make your voice heard and attend.
