If you are an SAP partner who is active on EcoHub and in the SAP Community Network (SCN), you can now connect your SCN activity to your EcoHub profile. We call this EcoHub Community Conversations.

Community Conversations let you enhance your EcoHub entry with links to forums, blogs and wikis in the SDN, BPX and BOC communities. This way, you can demonstrate your expertise and thought leadership to customers and prospects in an easy way. Directly on your EcoHub profile, readers can see the forums in which you participate, read your blogs, or participate on projects with you in wikis.

EcoHub Community Conversations is part of our efforts to provide maximum value to our partners and customers, and it is free. So, leverage the latest Web 2.0 tools to beef up your EcoHub entry and give your target audience the content they are looking for.

Read the EcoHub Community Conversations Wiki to get all the details of this opportunity, or send an email to SAP EcoHub Community to get started.

If your certified SAP solution is not part of the EcoHub partner solutions catalogue yet, find out how to get started on EcoHub or contact the EcoHub team directly at ecohub_partners@sap.com.

Happy Holidays!

    I think it is a good idea to bring the two communities together but EcoHub-based participants in SDN must be aware that there are certain set of rules and community etiquette considerations that have tradition in the SDN/BPX space. For example, if someone creates a “marketing” blog about their partner solution, there is a high possibility that they will get a negative -perhaps, hostile – response from the community. I’m not suggesting that EcoHub content is unwelcome in SDN/BPX. I’m just suggesting that the particular flavor of the community is respected.

    I looked at the material in the EcoHub wiki and found that there are just vague suggestions on what to publish. I’d like to suggest providing examples of “useful” content as examples in the wiki. Such examples might help avoid potential conflicts in the future.

      Interesting observation, Richard.
      I always thought that SDN/BPX community just avoided commenting on – basically ignoring – blogs with marketing spin.

      Product managers always have to create a marketing buzz – whether they work for SAP, or for a partner. By ignoring such content and by not commenting, I think the community delivers a strong message that we don’t tolerate fluff, and we need substance. Other than for plagiarism or something really bad, I have rarely seen a noticeable negative reaction. Maybe the partner posts will push some of the community there 🙂 – I am very curious to see how it will work out here.

        In a community where collaboration (in whatever form – a comment on a blog or a forum post) is a sign of positive reaction, ignoring a blog is a negative response. There have also been hostile reactions to particular blogs but I’d have to search for them to find them again.

        I also want to foster more partner-based content but on the community’s terms and not the other way around.  Just like anyone else new to the community, new partner-based members must also build a reputation based on collaboration.

      I really appreciate this feedback to my blog post. While I am in marketing, I have learned and fully understand that SCN is NOT a traditional marketing medium. The only thing the community will tolerate is relevant content that helps solve a problem at hand or educates (ok, sometimes we also entertain). The “EcoHub Community Conversations” project includes a direct “training” of each partner who we invite to connect. That means, we explain how SCN works and that marketing/sales content will be rejected and create a negative image. Hopefully, our advice will be heard. In my opinion, being ignored or getting negative comments back is worse than not getting published at all. The community regulates itself. Viva Web 2.0 :-).
