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.
