ASUG BITI Survey Results
We thank everyone for completing our survey. This gave us great insight as to what content and information is most valuable to our audience. Some key findings were that over 84 percent of respondents use ABAP, and that over 50 percent use SAP HANA® and SAP Workflow. We also found that SAP S/4HANA® is a topic of interest, and will be incorporating this topic into our 2019 content.
Read more here about the survey results, and congratulations to the random prize drawing winners.
