What We Do
ASUGNews provides independent and customer-focused coverage of everything that an ASUG member needs to realize success with their SAP systems. We deliver this via a combination of content:
- In-depth, customer-sourced feature stories and video interviews on business transformations that include core SAP technologies
- ASUG Briefings that present non-SAP-marketing roadmap information, analysis of product announcements, key interviews with SAP executives, and ASUG and SAP event summaries
- Surveys of ASUG membership and written reports on critical SAP products and services that deliver influence and educational opportunities for the membership and to SAP
- Social media channels provide a conduit for connecting the greater community, sharing good ideas and disseminating the most relevant content to the membership
