SAP Business ByDesign

The Business ByDesign SIG is designed to bring SAP Business ByDesign specific customers together, to support each other, influence the product, understand the plans for the product and give access to personnel within the ByD world to ensure users are able to get the maximum experience from their product. Within this SIG we have a strong mix of ByD customers, from small and large organisations, all having had different experiences, which has led to shared learnings and real tangible benefits to our members and their organisations.

Your BYD group has two new Co-chairs!
