This past week ASUG Volunteer Joyce Butler, Cathy Kennedy of Deloitte and Ashish Morzaria conducted this ASUG webcast.

This is a new ASUG Influence Council specifically focused on SAP Lumira.

Figure 1 describes what Influence Councils are.  It is a unique benefit to ASUG and something that if you are an ASUG member you should take advantage of.  It gives you the opportunity give feedback to SAP in a collaborative manner.  It is also an opportunity to learn and network with others.

SAP said this council would focus on the "Planned Innovations" shown in Figure 4.  I also believe it will have input into the future direction as well.

Figure 5 is the council's charter.  I like the emphasis on how to make it better.  It is important to note that councils are not an area for support help.
