A Knowledge Encyclopedia

It is really surprising for all that the way in which SDN is growing… New and New members every day; Members crossing milestones with their point each week… Really enthusiastic to logon @ SDN everyday! Now the launch of the new feature, ( Wiki ) is going to be marvelous from the beginning itself. One good thing over here is the advantage for the knowledge seekers. They do not really need to post a query over a forum and wait for appropriate answer. I agree the search option in forums will always lead you. But I could feel the Wiki web links simply enable us all the go and find our target easily than a search help. As you know the scenarios in the business varies from one organization to another. It always will be unique in all the places. Hence the way the business run at each places differs and there by, the way the problems comes as well. I sense this Wiki can be used as a knowledge share encyclopedia wherein we all can have an option to put our each unique business experiences. Along with that if we really have a place where everyone can put their difficulties/complexities while converting the SAP into each organizational business, it could be better. I mean a place where we can put the restrictions we face in SAP. This could be any, either from a technical perspective or more from functional side. This really drives others to go and refer this unique dictionary before starting their business conversions. That way it may also help all to come up with the leak parts of SAP (If at all if there is any!). That way we could share those each other and come up with either a fine custom solution or a standard one from SAP. Let’s add more and more practical knowledge as well as troubles faced in business to this encyclopedia and come up with better standards.Image

      Hi Thomas,
      The Wiki, in its present Beta version is a collection of FAQs.  It provides a dynamic tool for the community to gather frequent forum questions and blog topics and group them logically and in a way that makes good content easily accessible to others.

      If I understand you correctly, you are suggesting that members of the community could use the Wiki as a way of sharing their technical and functional experiences.  How would you propose that happening?  As separate journals?  Organized by industry?  By applications?  By processes?
      What exactly did you envision the wiki to be?
      What do others think?

      It’s great honor for me to consider my suggestions here.

      Bunching all FAQ is always good as that is going to be an instant access to the questions rather than a search. I feel this is available in any websites. But I could not find any kind of case study/analysis, with their complexities faced with SAP and their resolutions. I feel it will be really great and knowledgeable, if you could add those as discussion journals as a part of Wiki itself. The title separations can be a domain based. That way, anything which falls under the SAP umbrella can be combined together. It can be considered the best example as SPRO or the Standard area menu of SAP in R/3. The industry/processes/applications would be coming under any of these. Similar to wikipedia, the domain expertise hands could share their experiences by creating their on pages for each topic with version and discussion. This really helps for coming up with a drafted solution contributions from all over the world.

      This is going to be a great step and I’m petty sure that going forward Wiki is going to be a coherent grouping of all topics like an encyclopedia for any references.

      🙂 Thomas.
