SAP collects feedback to learn what are the current issues you face with the product.  They are seeking feedback for next release

It is a forum to collect and prioritize feedback for several companies

The council tries to have calls every 2 months to discuss topics, roadmaps, prioritize features

The council meets regularly at ASUG Annual Conference (SAPPHIRE) and SAP TechEd

    Thanks for sharing…

    I wish SAP had implemented the complete previous functionality in their “premium alternatives” of the BEx Analyzer and BEx WAD… instead asking for feedback (like via Ideaplace) and then taking years until it gets implemented eventually.  😡

    But I guess it is more likely that hell freezes before SAP changes its attitude 😈

    Just my 2 cents…
