Its been 3 days  since our new SCN has gone live. First of all kudos to the whole SCN team for all the hard work and unbeatable dedication.  I have been seeing a mix of emotions from people online as well as from my colleagues regarding the new SCN.

Some say we have taken a big leap towards the future while some say old was good and better.  Through this blog i would like to share my own views regarding the new SCN.

Let me take an example for our professional life.  What do we do we work on different projects. What happen before a project goes live the end user are trained with  system processes and how to use it. Do you think they are comfortable with this change no they are not. Change is one thing which is always difficult to adapt to. After a project goes live there is a hyper care phase where all the critical bugs are fixed and then the project gradually becomes stable.

In the same way i was observing the reaction of our fellow community members by reading blogs and bug fixing threads etc. Most of them are really happy and waiting patiently for the system to get stabilize. Our SCN team has come a long way to the place where we stand right now.  But few of us are talking about old SDN was better. Aren’t we behaving like being redundant to change same as end user behave. We do understand that we have some issues but believe me its not a small project. Its huge amount of data being moved to new SCN so many threads so many articles, e learnings etc etc… For me its the biggest. So many users going live at same go so many advanced features.In case few small hiccups are there they will get resolved soon.

Actually new SCN has brought more life into our community..a power to interact .so many powerful features…simply one stop shop for SAP related info..queries..more organized.

I should also mention about Mark for being so much transparent in communicating us the right status. In how many projects do we see such kind of transparency. Kudos to Mark and whole SCN team. Please keep up the good work as you are doing.

What i feel is lets wait for few days and you will see the improvements. Feel free to share your opinion on the same.

    nabheet madan – very nice blog! 🙂

    I believe we are all part of this “MIGRATION” period. So, let us continue to support the development team of SCN rather than  criticizing their works. 😀 Keep it up SCN! Kudos! Kudos!

    quite simply, I consult sdn forums for my technical issues. I didnt feel there was any need to change anything in the forums. the previous layout and search function was much more comfortable. there was no need of changing anything

      Hi Bhakti

      Thanks for the reply. the point here is not about searching only. the point here is as a whole making this forum more interactive more lively. For me getting to know the SAP contirbutors more closely, following them, Learning from them,interacting with them and finally in the end ..TRYING MY BEST TO GIVE BACK TO THIS COMMUNTIY IN WHATEVER SMALLER WAY I CAN FROM WHICH I HAVE LEARNT A LOT IS AMAZING


      1. Bhakti joshi

        hi nabheet, i have also learnt a lot here and would want to contribute back.

        but – how do you search the forums ?!

        could you guide me a bit please……

    Yes True said Nabheet.

    • The Fact is SAP itslef is Evolving at such high pace that the Applications linked to it need to pace along as well.Else we would never have Upgrades.
    • But the underlying fact remains true that we need active contributions in the latest areas of SAP.
    • Soon I realized that this SCN new Version is more user friendly and with little initial efforts it can give us best results to our queries.


    Trying to learn (SAP-GRC, SAP-FPM , SAP-BRF+) 😐
