      While 3 quarters of customers are not looking at moving away from PI/PO, what does it holds for SAP Cloud Migration adoption strategy? What are the views of SAP to Non-SAP ecosystem Integration scenarios and what is the most preferred solution for the same?

      Great work!  Very useful!

      However, when asking customers if they are planning to replace PI/PO with CPI, I would have prefered to have two different No options.

      • No - PI/PO is our strategic tool.
      • No - (or Never thought about it / Don't know)

      One thing is a customer that states that PI/PO is their strategic Integration tool (which is quite good). Other thing is a customer that has PI/PO, could move to CPI, but didn't plan it (don't know advantages, capabilities, etc.).

      I believe those 75% are now covering both kind of answers.
