ASUG Annual Conference – Call for Presentations is Now Open

ASUG has just announced the call for presentations for the upcoming ASUG Annual Conference 2014. This year, we have aligned the portal sub-topics areas to reflect the feedback we got from our customers in previous events and based on the latest SAP UI strategy. We would like to invite you all to submit your abstracts and share your experience with other customers about on-premise and cloud, desktop and mobile, intranet and extranet, best practices for implementation, and any other experience you can share with your fellow event participants. More informaton in this blog by Aviad Rivlin.


We sent 3 of our top experts (Itay Sagiv, Yariv Zur and Ohad Levy) to SAP TechEd Bangalore, and there were also four SAP Portal expert colleagues from SAP India added to the team. They spent 3 busy and effective days fully packed with lectures, hands-on sessions, theatre/lounge Q&A sessions and LIVE TV interviews. Watch this recorded live session with Ohad and Itay (Chandramohan Sankaran as the moderator) talking this year on “SAP Screen Personas and the Overall User Experience Go-to-Market Strategy”:

Give Your Feedback to SAP Portal Notes

Until now there was no organized way for providing feedback or remarks on SAP Portal customer notes.From now on you can help us to improve our notes by opening a thread in the SAP Portal space discussion forum. We have created for that purpose a special forum category. Read this new blog by Tal Haviv to get familiar with the process of giving feedback.
