About African SAP User Group

AFSUG brings together SAP customers and partners from different industries and business processes in order to exchange ideas and accelerate successful business implementations. Members of AFSUG can influence SAP Africa and SAP AG’s local and global directions.

In order to promote the interests of the User community, AFSUG regularly communicates with its members, its business partners, and SAP Africa at all levels.

Additionally, this relationship allows SAP Africa to manage the challenges posed by rapid growth.

Our Specialisation

AFSUG is the sole SAP user group in Southern Africa, but important to note that it is independently run and is a nonprofit organization.  It is run by a volunteer Board of Customer and Partner CIOs.

AFSUG hosts up to 10 SAP Special Interest Groups based on the SAP solutions it offers as well as industry-specific events throughout the year. Events take place in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban. During Covid-19 Pandemic, we will host digital and webcast events.  Our Special Interest Group Meetings (SIG’s) feature local and international SAP experts and we host webcasts with our partners and customers monthly.

SAPHILA’s biennial conference date will be announced soon
