Reader Survey - Share Your SAP User Sentiment at ASUG/SAPPHIRE 2010

Already on the ground in Orlando - and deep into an SAP Enteprise Architecture pre-conference deep dive, I received word from Ray Wang, one of the key analysts in the enterprise space, about a groundswell organization to poll SAP user sentiment. And that’s where you come in. Please help us gauge the sentiments of SAP users by filling out our  "Sapphire user sentiment survey."

A bit of context for the motivations here: Sapphire in particular is SAP’s chance to clarify its own position, product line, and messaging with its users. But users may very well have different priorities in mind. It’s important to make your voice heard and keep SAP in line with the top items on your real-world list.

An esteemed group of colleagues is helping to gather the information for the survey, including Enterprise Irregulars Michael Cote, Larry Dignan, Michael Krigsman, and Vinnie Mirchandani; SAP Mentor Dennis Howlett and Thomas Wailgum from CIO magazine. It will be interesting to find out how the issues in our poll stack up with SAP’s agenda at Sapphire.

Here’s some of the topics covered in the poll:

  • Confidence in the leadership team
  • SAP Innovation
  • Upgrade sentiments
  • Cloud and ByD
  • Certification of ecosystem partners
  • SAP Sybase
  • NetWeaver Adoption
  • In Memory
  • Third party maintenance.

Thanks in advance for your participation. You can look forward to more updates in all forms (podcast, videos, blogs) on what I learn at ASUG/Sapphire 2010. I’ve already picked up on some interesting skills trends in the Enterprise Architect/techno-functional perspective. OK, have to head back into my deep dive session.

We’ll fill readers in on the poll results after the show. If you’re heading to Orlando or Frankfurt, safe travels!

"Jon, you are definitely spot on with your analysis of the SAP market. I've been using your websites for over five years now. Instead of buying all the SAP books, I use your stuff to catch up with what's new in the ever-increasing SAP market." - Mark Reader Feedback

"I've kept up with your site for a long time and your articles via and elsewhere. I just realized a few months ago that you were also the author of the first SAP Consulting book that I read when I decided to take the leap from working at a Utility company to becoming an SAP Consultant. The SAP Consultant Handbook is a staple for any SAP consultant, new or experienced. I just wanted to thank you for the quality work."
