Results of the global Survey for SAP Integration 2019

As the previous years, theĀ 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.

      Thanks Holger for sharing the survey results. Since SAP provides 2 integration platforms CPI and PO, the comparison between the two is inevitable. I read that SAP plans to release further version of SAP PO after some time. Is there a platform to provide suggestions regarding adding new features and functionalities that we would like to see in future versions of SAP PO.
