At the most recent DSAG Annual Congress, they made it official: the German User Group (DSAG) announced its union with the Austrian Association of SAP Users (Austria CCC Forum).
According to Alfons Wahlers, Head of the DSAG
Executive Board, the merging of Austrian and
German SAP users will strengthen DSAG both
internally and externally: "We are extremely pleased that the Austrian users recognized the benefits of uniting with DSAG and decided to join us. Through the exchange and cooperation with our Austrian colleagues, DSAG's
work will become more international, and with
that, more diversified. We want to continue
to pursue ways to involve regional working
groups in the entire German-speaking area,
thus strengthening our position in collaborating
with SAP. We are very pleased about the exchange
and the cooperative work with our Austrian
Working in close cooperation with Austrian SAP users will enable DSAG
to enhance its market position in both Germany and Austria. By combining interests, member companies of the new, expanded DSAG will also be able to strengthen their working relationship with SAP.
New Working Groups Provide Region-Specific Member Forums
The Austria CCC Forum consists of 60 Austrian companies, organized into six working groups: Basic & Technologies, Costs, Human Resources, Security, Solution Manager, Business Warehouse. These groups will now exist as regional working groups within DSAG, and all DSAG members — both German and Austrian SAP users — will enjoy guaranteed access to them.
In the future, Austrian SAP users will also be able to establish additional regional working groups and provide country-specific development requests and feedback to SAP.
Tapping into DSAG's
As DSAG members, Austrian SAP users will be engaged in the well-established information network between DSAG
and SAP, and they will profit from the extended access to all of the information and services that DSAG offers.
As a representative of the Austrian working groups, Nikolaus Putzenbacher speaks to the benefits that DSAG can offer Austrian SAP users: "The Austria CCC Forum has now reached such a size that our resources have been fully extended. Through our affiliation with DSAG, we now have a better market position and are able to continue operating our regional working groups. On top of that, being able to take advantage of an excellent infrastructure and all of DSAG's services is also very important to us."
New Name, Enhanced Collaboration with SAP
As a result of the merger between the Austria
CCC Forum and the German SAP User Group, the
members and executive board of DSAG have decided
to offer a new take on the DSAG abbreviation,
deeming it the German-Speaking SAP User
Group. With this
official announcement, member companies look
forward to a strong partnership between German
and Austrian SAP users and, as a result, an
enhanced working relationship with SAP.
