CWG Chapters

The Board of Directors is currently forming local and regional CWG Chapters globally. 

Our mission is to provide information and education about the SAP Variant Configuration (VC), the Internet Pricing Configurator (IPC), and SAP CRM configurators and historically the primary venue for this information sharing and networking has been either this website or at the European Conference in the Spring and the North American CWG Conference in the Fall.

Each CWG Chapter has their own website page and please visit for more information by clicking on the Chapter Title below.

With 500+ member companies, 250+ partner companies and 2,500+ members, not everyone can or will attend a European or North American conference to get specific answers to questions or meet and network with other VC and IPC professionals.  This website has been the only alternative to the two conferences per year. 

So, the CWG Board is enabling companies and members to have their own "mini conferences" to discuss and share issues, network and find out how to solve some of those tough problems through the formation of local CWG Chapters with face-to-face meetings and webinars.  Each Chapter will also have a specific Chapter LinkedIn Group for networking and receiving Chapter announcements   There is also a LinkedIn Group for all CWG members.

Chapters are designed to share and discuss issues that you may have in your everyday implementation, integration or modeling problems.  It is also a place to learn more about the VC and IPC.  Education is one of the primary goals and now this can be accomplished on a local level. 

The CWG Chapter has to be self-sufficient though.  We encourage their formation and will assist in building the member base and helping to get out the message to local members, and sharing information presented at the chapters, and the Chapter in return has the freedom to meet and have presentations about their local issues.

First live meeting of the South German CWG Chapter

The first live meeting took place on Wednesday 18th of July 2012 at SAP in Walldorf. Participants of 9 CWG member companies (18 people) and 2 guys from SAP took part.

We had a time frame from 1 to 6 p.m.

All the participating companies had prepared presentations on what exactly they do with VC/IPC and adjacent topics within their organisations.

We spent almost all of the time for these very detailed presentations and some discussions around them.

There will be a follow up meeting in late October.

Twin Cities Chapter Meeting Held!

Next meeting will be set for November 10th from 11 - 1.


August 3, we had our first chapter meeting.  6 companies were represented.

We discussed future meetings/topics.  We are planning on meeting quarterly and also looking into meeting with ASUG.  Topics that were of interest are items like lessons learned, tips and tricks, and demos of how companies are doing VC.

I reviewed our current process at TE Connectivity and did a demo of the Quote and Sales Order process.  I also talked about things that we may do differently than what others do!
