Passion for SAP Community Network (SCN)
Here http://prezi.com/103156/view/ a prezi presentation to tell the passion most of the specialists working for Techedge have for the SAP Community Network (SCN).

Let me now ask to you an easy question:
Where can you ask for suggestions (forums), study specific topics (articles), watch how-to-do videos (eLearning), build the SAP specific wikipedia (wiki) and exchange great ideas (weblogs)?
and let’s see if you’ll find the right answer between the followings:
1) in Twitter 2) in Facebook 3) in SAP Community Network (SCN)
Everyone working in the SAP eco-system well knows which is the web site that provides the most value and especially if you have never been involved in any innovative project, I’m sure you appreciated the SAP Community Network (SCN).
Techedge was founded more or less in the same days of SCN (SDN) and since the beginning its focus was on innovation that in those days was everything under the NetWeaver umbrella. The ‘edge‘ in Techedge could indeed be interpreted as SAP PI, SAP Portal, SAP MDM, SAP BI, SOA, Web Dynpro and last but not least Adobe IF and Adobe Flex and many others with a special focus about SAP SRM.
I think that the success of Techedge has been possible also thanks to SCN because when you are an early adopter, SCN is really essential and it becomes also one of your best friend.
But the passion for SCN comes into its own when you begin to share your own ideas, experiences and even piece of code and in Techedge we are always happy to contribute to the community, we often discuss about its contents and we even organize our own internal Jam Sessions.
In SCN you’ll find not only SAP specific topics but also a lot of other IT related stuff; for example Mark Finner (Assemble Your Tribe – Community Building in the 21st Century) pointed the attention to prezi that is a cool online presentation tool that I used to create the presentation at the begin of this blog.
Probably, also thanks to Mark, prezi won the World Technology Award (WTA) for Arts and got an important Fund (Prezi Gains VC Funding).
