Global PI Survey 2013: New record, 4 weeks to go
About the Survey
Focus of the survey is to collect the latest state of the positioning, use and organization of SAP NetWeaver PI and SAP integration in companies all around the globe. Target group are employees from companies using SAP NetWeaver PI as an integration platform.
The survey contains 23 general questions and 9 questions about this year’s special topic ‘B2B and EDI’. Apart from minor adjustments, the general questions stay the same each year, so that the survey can also show changes in the use and positioning of PI over the years.

Current Status, new Target
This year’s target was to reach a number of 400 participants, as there were less responses from some countries in 2012. Based on our figures from July 15th we achieved the number of 449 participants with still one more month to go. Therefore already a big thank you to all of you who have participated in the survey! New target is to set a new record with 500 responses till the end of the survey on August 24th.
Following a pre-release of two results as a motivation for all of you having not particapted in the survey so far.

Feedback and planned Improvements for next Year
One feedback we got is that the survey form currently requires you to reply to all questions. In the next survey we want to make more questions and sections optional, as not each single topic may be relevant for or known by each participant. Another planned improvement is to make an easier distinction whether you are a participant from an enduser or whether you are a consultant working for an IT service provider or a freelancer. For sure, the survey in 2014 will also put more focus on SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration and SAP NetWeaver BPM.
If you have other areas for improvement please let us know.
