This is my first blog. I thought my first blog should be dedicated to SDN, so chose the topic ‘Benefits of Forums’. I would like to share, what I look for when browsing thru forums.
- Solutions to my problems
This one is self explanatory. When I encounter an issue which doesn’t seem to get addressed thru known sources, I look up to Expert Forums.
- Learning derived from others’ problems
I don’t enjoy people making mistakes but then, one can always learn a lesson out of it. This can also lead to evolution of alternative solutions to my problems.
- Validation of my concepts
It is good to read answers, which I am aware of. This strengthens the core concepts and sometimes enriches them.
- Encourage out of box thinking
Some threads put me in dilemma: Can such requirement be really there? Can it be addressed in SAP? How?
This leads to good amount of brain storming followed by discussions in forum.
- Practice consultancy
Forums provide a platform to practice consultancy for free.
Expert forums are really making a positive difference to the Consultant Community. Now with World Food Programme, SDN is making great social contribution as well.
