      Hi Michael, nice to hear from you. When you say you like to join the SAP Defense interest group do you mean the community group on At SAP we also have a Defense and Security group (DOD etc) and a group for Aerospace and Defense OEMs (Airbus, Boeing etc). Which one would you like to join? Best Thomas
