What Happens in Vegas.......

Las Vegas 2016 CWG Conference is over... So let's start planning the spring conference... The voting is leaning towards Hamburg at this particular moment..


But I wonder... In Vegas we had around 115 people. On day 1, a question was asked of the audience; "How many people voted for Las Vegas?" I think 5 people raised their hands.. Not sure why this happened, but it does make me wonder about the whole "voting" thing..

Although, I admit... I'd rather do Hamburg than Barcelona... I like German beer better... :)



Will I See You In Las Vegas?


Time is growing short... The October conference in Las Vegas is quickly approaching. Hopefully you have taken advantage of the early bird rate, reserved your hotel rooms, and booked your flights already..

Design Validation of new VC app for S/4HANA on day 2

Dear CWG members,

SAP is working on the S/4HANA app for variant configuration. The design of the new app is still rough, and we would like to get end user feedback right from the beginning, so that we head in the right direction right away. Felix Haeusser and Uwe Betzin would like to validate the current design ideas on day 2 by doing usability tests with end users.
