The heads of SAP user groups from around the world are planning to meet SAP senior management in Boston in December.
This is the first time all groups will be meeting in one place. The goal of the SAP user group is to present a global voice from all users, covering what businesses want from SAP.
Speaking to Computer Weekly, Glynnn Lowth, chairman of the SAP user group in the UK, said, "We will work with other user groups to influence planning. Lowth said it was hard for a single user group to influence SAP, but together, the groups represented a large number of users.
The agenda for the meeting has not been set yet, but from a UK perspective Lowth wanted to see the development of SAP Support Services in the UK.
Lowth has begun collaborating with user groups in France, Spain, Germany and Holland to call for better support services.
He expected the groups would focus on influencing SAP's overall product strategy rather than asking for new functions and features to be added to SAP's software.
