As the previous years, the International Focus Group for Integration (IFG for Integration) conducted its annual survey for SAP Process Integration, SAP Cloud Platform Integration and topics around SAP integration. The survey was scheduled from May till September 2019.
Based on the feedback from the previous year the number of questions was significantly reduced from 36 to 15.
Again many thanks to all participants from all five continents that replied to our survey!
The complete survey results were forwarded to all participants who included their email address in the survey registration.
The following section shows an extract of the results. The numbers without percentage sign show the absolute number of responses.
