Since the re-launch, the SCN team says they’ve experienced record levels of engagement and feedback, with members weighing in on the new platform’s pros and cons and reacting to the inevitable hiccups of a large-scale migration. With time to absorb the change, however, user feedback is trending more positive. Ivan Femia, senior SAP NetWeaver consultant at Techedge Group and SCN member since 2007 says, “The new SCN gave visibility to my blogs and I like the ‘areas of interest’ – it’s a better way to organize the content. You find what you need when you need it.” Femia is also an SAP Mentor, a group of more than 100 bloggers, consultants, and technical wizards who are highly engaged in SCN activities.
The SCN team has closely monitored member sentiment since the launch and offers advice on how users can best engaged with the revamped community in the Getting Started and Meet the Community areas of the site.
With the recent upgrade, SCN has evolved from a place to simply share best practices and answer questions to a comprehensive, powerful source of the information IT and business professionals need to be successful in their work with SAP.
“The new SAP Community is beneficial to users on three levels,” says Gail Moody-Byrd, senior director of SAP Marketing. “You can find the help you need to be successful, increase your influence on SAP’s direction, and discover new ways of working to introduce to your SAP teams.”
