I have been Product manager with the SAP BusinessObjects BI team for over 3 years now and handle roadmap for supported platforms. For quite some time we have used Idea Place to hear interesting feature requests from our customers. The enthusiasm has been great and we have generated tons of ideas from this forum. Hard part for me personally has been choosing the ones to be prioritized for development from amongst the hundreds of requests.
While this forum has been great in generating ideas, we have lost out on some of the details and pain points that come with individual customer cases. We believe a more focused approach to hearing from customers will help us prioritize requests better than the current voting mechanism in Idea Place. Given this, along with new influence programs at Customer Influence (https://influence.sap.com), we decided to close the Platform Support Idea Place session to new ideas. The site will be accessible till Oct 2017.
We will continue hearing from you through our various Customer Influence programs. You could also reach out to me with pain points or requests for new supported platforms. Do continue providing us your valuable feedback and we look forward to hearing from you.
