Hi Everyone – Happy New Year…although we are nearly 3 weeks into January already!
I took a couple of weeks off for the holidays, the longest since 2001, and had a really great break with family. My two oldest kids came home and it was nice to be back together again.
Upon my return, I had hoped that I could update folks on process in place for getting folks who don’t have S User IDs into the beta. Although we’ve tried different options, we still don’t have a process that can enable access through the Service Marketplace (SMP) without the an S User ID.
While I realize that many of you are frustrated by this, please know that as soon as v15 is available, we will have a trial version for testing. And, being able to provide PowerBuilder 15 beta to any customer with an S User is very different from past betas at SAP. I am excited that PowerBuilder has been able to help increase access for developers by being the first product to participate in this new model, and we will continue to play a role in expanding access.
I am also excited to announce that Dave Fish will be more involved with PowerBuilder activities, and we are looking forward to working with partners and customers, rebuilding the community, and finding ways to help PowerBuilder developers leverage the other services and products in SAP.
I will keep you updated as more info is available.
