ISUG-TECH Enhancements Process
One of the most important roles played by ISUG-TECH members is that of helping to improve SAP's Sybase products. Through the enhancements request process, members draw on their own experience to suggest fixes and new ideas for the future releases. Any member may submit an enhancement request, but only those with paid memberships/subscriptions Regular Members may vote on enhancements in the system. (Join ISUG now)
How the Submission Process Works
All enhancements requests submitted by members (using the Enhancement Request Form) are sent to ISUG-TECH's enhancements committee. Once the request is approved the following steps are taken:
At this point members can now rank the request and provide comments. The requests that score highest both in voting and in needs stated in the comments will be submitted to SAP's Customer Connection Program for consideration. The SAP/Sybase engineers who subscribe to the list will be able to give us an indication if plans for that request already exist.
The Voting Process
ISUG-TECH uses an absolute voting process. Each request is given a vote independent of any other requests. Members may cast one of 6 possible votes:
Once submitted, the status of an enhancement will change based on where it is in the process:
Note that ISUG-TECH also has product entries for third party products. In those cases, the enhancement requests are handled by the vendor rather than SAP, but the status shown in the enhancement system is reflective of where that request is in their system, not the SAP CCP.
