I’ve been gliffified! Take the Gliffy Challenge

My last blog about the WIKI Gliffy Plug-in announced its presence in the SDN / BPX Wiki area and showed how to use it.  This blog will showcase a few of the SAP-relevant possible diagram types and will initiate the Gliffy Challenge on the WIKI.


 A Caveat:  I didn’t know if the correct term was “Gliffed” or “Giffified”.  I choose the second, because it sounded better.  


Based on my experience working on the Community Pilot, I have already tried out a series of interesting diagram types.  I have included screenshots below.

I think Gliffy has great potential in the WIKI space.  Therefore, I have created a WIKI page called the Gliffy challenge. This page has different categories of Gliffy-based diagrams where users can post their examples of Gliffy-based diagrams.  Of course, you could draw your new kitchen but I think the more important challenge is creating SAP (and perhaps) IT-relevant diagrams. Maybe if we are lucky, SAP might offer some cool prizes for the best diagrams.


So, just like the MTV show – “Punk’d”,  anyone who creates a Gliffy diagram on the SDN/BPX WIKI space has the honor of saying that “My Wiki Page just got gliffified!”

      And I'll up the ante and see to it that anyone creating good Gliffy content gets rewarded.  Thanks Dick for really getting the ball rolling with this exciting capability.  We already see an internal buzz and hope it spreads to the entire community.
      Maybe some brief demos would help.  Looking forward to featuring you and Gliffy in the clubhouse in Munich at TechEd.

      Just wanted to say that this is a great idea and that Gliffy is a nifty tool.

      I agree it is a cool tool. The question is how to best use the tool in the WIKI. I've started listing the digram types that we needed in the Community Project but there are probably a lot more that are possible that I just haven't discovered yet.
