Maximize your efforts and your outcomes
A collaborative program between ASUG and SAP, Benchmarking and Best Practices helps identify aspects of your organization that excel and those in need of improvement. Relying on systematic surveys and studies that detect strengths and vulnerabilities, the program also explores current and emerging best practices that you can integrate into your operations.
The value of accessing data that can drive organizational improvement is only enhanced when you consider that participants play a key role in determining the types of studies conducted by the program.

Benchmarking allows you to track your performance, compare your performance to that of your peers and other SAP users, determine the value of adopting best practices, and better understand how IT drives performance. Through its studies and surveys, the program empowers you to take action that includes the following:
- LEVERAGE your results to pinpoint opportunities for cost reduction and increased productivity
- MITIGATE IT exposures and risks
- EXPLORE best practices and industry trends in order to facilitate strategic IT planning initiatives
All Benchmarking and Best Practices survey participants receive an ASUG and SAP Benchmarking and Best Practices report for each completed survey they submit. The report provides highlights of key findings and detailed results in surveys such as Business Intelligence and Analytics, Value Management, and Best-Run IT. The level of participation ensures that participant reports provide valuable insights around best in class KPIs and best practice adoption.
As the Benchmarking and Best Practices program extends to our SAP BusinessObjects members, survey results across several of our established surveys are available using the SAP BusinessObjects OnDemand tool. This allows those who have already participated in a Benchmarking study to manipulate their results in real time by posing value scenarios. This Benchmarking Overview Webcast offers more insight on the impact of benchmarking. Please note, this (free) Webex player is required to view the .WRF file recordings.
The Benchmarking and Best Practices program is a vital part of our continuing effort to provide ASUG members with the tools to overcome organizational challenges. Enhance the value of your membership by participating in this program today.
