Chris: excited for expert chat – available for most components – everything you need for Support incident you need for expert chat

Jelena: To clarify: when you call CIC, you can request “escalation” or “speed up”. “Escalation” = raise the priority (needs justification). “Speed up” = “poke” the respective team in hope to get them moving on your ticket

    I guess this is the perfect blog since no one is asking any questions.

    Well, in the name of many SAP employees and customers, I say “Thank you” for putting this together, Tammy.

    Best,
