We're OFF to see the Wizard

Yes Dorothy, some of us are going to take that big silver bird (not the yellow brick road) and fly down to Orlando, Florida to go see the SAP Wizard..Not quite sure what this strange, infamous being looks  like, but I hope it isn't like this;

The SAP Wizard?

I admit, I'd rather be in Cologne drinking that good German beer and interacting with the CWG folks, but there are very valid reasons why I (along with several other CWG regulars) will be in Florida..

It's  all about 2 things;

  • New members
  • A new Influence council

For a long time, the CWG has tried to influence SAP to make various different improvements. To a certain  degree, we've had some small success. There's  a  root cause problem though....

The CWG membership is too small...

WHAT??? The CWG is too small??? But, but, but......We've grown exponentially over the past few years...

Yes, Virginia, we have....However....

Think about it from the SAP perspective.

ASUG has about 10,000 people attend their conference, DSAG has around 5,000...

CWG has 150.

Who gets the attention?? If it were YOUR business, and you had the choice of paying attention to 10,000 or 150, what would YOU do??

 

So, the CWG Board linked up with ASUG back in  2010. Great job folks!!! Love to see it...Next comes DSAG??

Now  it's time to turn our attention to that most basic, elemental function of a CWG member....

Getting new members to join.

So, if you have folks in your Company that attend ASUG, have them stop by the CWG Community lounge, or sit in on one of the CWG member presentations...We can use all the help we can get drumming up new members...

Till next time,

Steve
