You can register for several projects. The following projects are relevant for the SAP/ASUG BI Community Members:

About the Customer Engagement Initiative

SAP wants customer’s early involvement in the development process. Many topics will be opened only for SAP customers, but there are also topics for which the contribution of partners is requested.

Note: The above information was pulled together from various sources: SAP, ASUG and VNSG with some edits by me.

I have been involved with one “CEI” project for several years.  Some CEI’s continue, others are short term.  Registering does not involve a commitment.

Upcoming ASUG BI webcasts:

BI Platform SIG

Dashboarding SIG


Enterprise Data Warehousing SIG
