The ASUG BI Community thanks you for completing the survey.  We continue to reach out to our ASUG Members to better understand where ASUG can help and how we are doing in delivery to your educational, networking and SAP influence requirement.  In this latest survey we asked for your feedback on 2017 and what we needed to strive for in 2018.  This year we created new survey questions.  Back in October I provided preliminary updates on the survey, and below is the final result.


Q: Which tools are you currently using?

You can see from the above that Web Intelligence is the top client used.  It will be featured at the February BI+Analytics Conference – be sure to check out the agenda.  Additionally I am grateful that SAP’s Pascal GAULIN will present on February 14 How to Become a Visualization Guru: Tips & Tricks on Web Intelligence Charts

Crystal Reports is third and we have a webcast this week on January 18 Crystal Reports 2016 to Crystal Reports for Enterprise Migration

Text analysis for the Other (please specify) category shows this:

Q: Rank topics of interest

The BI clients are the top topic of interest, with BI platform a close second. BI client upcoming webcasts include:


We heard you early about BI Platform and have the following webcasts scheduled next month:

Q: What are your company’s plans for the next 6-12 months?


It’s a tie!  Upgrading to Lumira 2.x and BI4.2

Upgrading to BW/4HANA:

Jan 16 – Simplifying your upgrade and consolidation to BW/4HANA 


Text analysis for “Other” response is as follows:


Q: Where do you go to obtain your information?


You can see that most respondents go to the SAP Community for information.

The “other” text analysis shows this:


Q: What other topics would be of interest to you for Webcasts and Conferences?

Responses were wide-ranging, and the text analysis shows 13 words and phrases:


For sure the BI+Analytics Conference in February will cover many of the topics above and so will ASUG Annual Conference in June.

Q: Do you have plans to move BI into the Cloud?



In the responses, some said they have already moved to the cloud.

On May 7th, ASUG is planning to re-launch the ASUG Analysis Influence Council, and we’ll be recruiting at ASUG Annual Conference.


I want thank everyone for taking the survey – this helps plan for 2018.
