Sales Strategy Guidance

- Lead with new TM1 SAP Package Connector for all SAP-related
opportunities
- Only position old TM1 Connector (Syskoplan) for SAP if write back
or security replication required to win opportunity
- Alert FPM management (MRC, Sanna, Ciperski) and Jason Lovinger
whenever planning to position old TM1 Connector (Syskoplan) for
SAP
