    The ASUG BI Community thanks you for completing the survey.  We continue to reach out to our ASUG Members to better understand where ASUG can help and how we are doing in delivery to your educational, networking and SAP influence requirement.  In this latest survey we asked for your feedback on 2017 and what we needed to strive for in 2018.  This year we created new survey questions.
