Continuing the ASUG SAP TechEd && d-code meet the speaker series (Las Vegas), I am pleased to introduce speaker Joyce Butler

Joyce has been an ASUG Volunteer since 2002 and she is also anSAP Mentor

Joyce is presenting session EA 117 End Analysis Paralysis with the ASUG Analysis Influence Council


Meet Joyce (pictured left with SAP Ingo Hilgefort) :

Joyce is an SEC Alabama Crimson Tide football fanatic.  She is also the lead for the ASUG Analysis Influence Council.

She has “led over 14 full life cycle SAP BI projects within both supply chain and finance Since 1999, implementing SAP Business Intelligence decision support applications for use in financial and supply chain reporting and analysis ASUG volunteer since 2002” according to her speaker profile.  In addition to leading this ASUG Analysis Influence Council, she also leads the Design Studio Influence Council and services as the ASUG Analtyics Special Interest Group chair.

I asked SAP’s David Stocker to comment on Joyce and he said the following:

Joyce’s hard work as an ASUG leader is instrumental in connecting SAP to the heartbeat of our BI user community; and the community to SAP.

Joyce helps lead the council in gathering requirements, driving towards a better solution for the customer and SAP.  You can see the Council’s achievements How ASUG Members Influenced Analysis Office (and Sneak Preview)

The council helps drive product strategy for the next major release and upcoming releases.  It is one of the best benefits of ASUG.  Here is the abstract for this session:

Influence SAP at this open and interactive session for the ASUG Influence Council for SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, editions for Microsoft Office and OLAP. SAP would like your feedback and the ASUG Influence Councils are the best form of input back to SAP. Learn how this Influence Council has already influenced SAP.

I asked Joyce what else she is doing at SAP TechEd && d-code and she is attending the SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1 and SAP BW – All in One Day Pre-conference session on October 20th (see more information here)
