In 2013, ASUG launched a cloud integration Influence Council which spanned several integration topics between SAP Business Suite (with a focus though on SAP ERP) and SAP's recently acquired cloud solutions. While the initial focus targeted cross-solution topics, this year the councils narrowed their focus further and formed separate groups focusing on integration with Ariba, HCI, and a broader council looking at the full Cloud for Customer solution development direction.
At this year's 2015 ASUG Annual Conference in Orlando, we hope you can join us at one of two events to influence SAP's development of more simplified and streamlined integration capabilities for SAP Business Suite integration with Ariba;
Arriving on Sunday or Monday? During the all-day "Ariba & SAP Business Suite Integration 101" ASUG Pre-conference session, attendees will participate in a full-day deep dive workshop covering Ariba & Business Suite integration. Hear options, best practices, and the roadmap for Ariba Integration with SAP Business Suite and gain a deep dive into the integration options to simplify the integration including options for SAP HANA Cloud Integration, Ariba Integration Tool Kit, Direct Connectivity, and SAP NetWeaver PI, and what packaged SAP Best Practices are available in SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions. We'll have several "bring-your-own-PC" hands on exercises using offline simulations you can take home with you, and download project tools to help you get started.
During the lunch break, we'll host Influence Lunch Table discussions with workshop participants, hosted by our ASUG Influence Customer Chair, Nick DeCenzo, and SAP Product & Package Owners including , Lisa Sammer, Cathal O'Sullivan, Kirsten Loegering, Sindhu Gangdharan, and Andreas Muno.
To participate, learn more here and note that ASUG preconference sessions have an additional fee; $595 for ASUG Members, and $695 for Non-Members
2. ASUG SAP Ariba Influence session in the ASUG Hub on Wednesday, May 6th at 4:15PM
Join Ariba Integration ASUG Influence Council Customer Chair, Nick DeCenzo and several Ariba/SAP Product Managers regarding future development plans and ASUG member needs regarding Ariba integration with SAP Business Suite.
Last year the ASUG Cloud Integration Influence Council was run as one council with a bigger cross-cloud solution and technical focus, but has since been split into separate influence councils focused on specific cloud solutions. In several cases in the past we collaborated with the existing SRM focus/influence group as well where possible, and will continue to do so. During this session we'll have several SAP Product Management teams represented to hear your ideas and requirements, and to share their areas of development where SAP is actively seeking ASUG input via integration between ASUG Influence Councils and SAP CEI projects. Join us to learn more!
Hope you are able to join us at one of these sessions!
