As the previous years, the International Focus Group for Integration (IFG for Integration) performed its annual survey for SAP Process Integration, SAP Cloud Platform Integration and topics around SAP integration. The survey was scheduled from May till September 2017.
The survey contained 35 questions. Apart from our every year’s questions the focus topic for 2017 was IoT and cloud integration.
Different to the years before, the survey was published in multiple languages (English, German, French, Spanish and Chinese) which definitely helped to improve the response rate compared to the last two years.
