The SAP Customer Engagement Initiative gives you early insights into new SAP product development. Afterwards, product managers will ask for the participants’ honest assessment,
input, and ideas.

  • Participate in remote or on-site sessions to discuss ideas and see if they fit customer requirements
  • Collaborate with SAP product management to shape new product features
  • Build a network with other SAP customers and partners using the same product


You can see a complete list of all projects online if you click here to access the SAP Customer Influence site ( An overview is attached for your reference; however, you should check the site for the latest details.
