SAP is one of the largest vendors of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, with a variety of modules to manage business operations and customer relations. The SAP Australian User Group (SAUG) is an independent not-for-profit member organisation with the sole purpose of working as a strategic partner of the Australian SAP community (including SAP acquired companies – SuccessFactors, Ariba, Concur, hybris, Fieldglass and Qualtrics).
The SAUG provides a forum for individuals and companies within the SAP community to share knowledge, network with peers and influence the direction of SAP solutions. The SAUG is the only SAP endorsed user group in Australia and represents the interests of over 5000 individuals from more than 400 companies.
The SAUG offers a comprehensive schedule of events, including webinars, in addition to face-to-face events such as the National Summit and conferences in Canberra, Brisbane and Melbourne. Each of these events feature a significant number of SAP customers who share their experiences using SAP solutions and provide an incredible opportunity to network with other SAP users, experts, consultants and executives.
The SAUG also facilitates Special Interest Groups (SIGs), led by customer members across the country that cover a wide range of topic areas including utilities, enterprise architecture, S/4HANA and more. These groups gather on a regular basis to discuss areas of common interest, exchange knowledge and raise areas of concern that can then be fed back to SAP.
