We have just kicked off a new customer connection project for providing improvements within SAP Process Orchestration.
If you are not familiar with the customer connection focus topic within the SAP customer influence program, in short it’s a time bound project that allows customers and partners to suggest enhancements and subscribe to the same leading to a ranked backlog based upon customer needs. For more details, refer to SAP Customer Influence: Home.
The current project is about improving integration capabilities of SAP Process Integration / SAP Process Orchestration based on the feedback from the involved customers and partners. The scope of the project is not restricted to any specific topic however we would like to stress that the topics selected here should be aligned with our overall strategy for SAP Process Orchestration which goes clearly in the direction of a Java-only ESB.
The project phases and timelines are depicted in the figure blow. It starts with the collection phase where you can submit new requests and subscribe to requests from the peers. The collection phase goes until 4th of Dec 2015. In the selection phase, we select and decide on the improvement requests which will be implemented based on demand, feasibility, etc. The selection phase is closed with a selection call where we will present you the list of selected items. Development is targeted around Feb to April 2016.
If you like to participate, go to the Customer Connection for SAP Process Orchestration page within the Customer Influence area on SCN. If you have missed the kick off sessions, on Documents & Events tab you find information material and recordings of the kick off calls.
