Influence

You Talk. SAP Listens. Everybody Wins.

The ASUG Influence program plays a vital part in shaping SAP product and service offerings by connecting SAP professionals with SAP product teams in a collaborative effort to leverage the collective voice of the customer to guide development. 

Influence Councils are member-led task forces organized to make the business case for change. Participate in roadmap validation, use-case scenarios, and the next round of product enhancements.

Share your experiences. Reimagine the future of SAP solutions and services. Impact every stage of the SAP development cycle with ASUG Influence.
