The ASUG BITI 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 2018 and what we needed to strive for in 2019. This is the first year this SIG has created a survey.

Other survey comments:
” Basically how to migrate ABAP and Workflow created in ERP6 to S/4 HANA ”
“ASUG.com discussion areas need to more focus to go back to being useful for customers. No one posts and no one answers.”
It’s fitting that when I logged on to ASUG.com this morning I found the Jim Spath One Last Nail from the Hammer. Jim not only lead this group for several years, he took the time to engage and mentor other volunteers. It won’t be the same with him.
