As the Olympics have come to an end, we know the community needs the excitement to continue, and what is more exciting than the announcement of SCN’s Topic Leaders 2011-2012!
Every year, in August, we recognize the Top 3 contributors – Topic Leaders – in SCN point categories. The launch of the new SCN is special and although that happened in the middle of the contest (March 2012), we still wanted the community to be recognized for their contribution points in the 43 old point categories. We looked at your contributions in the old SCN point categories as well as in the new SCN topic spaces and mapped them all to the same point categories.
We know the community has been patiently waiting and we are excited to announce the Topic Leaders for 2011-2012!

The SCN team wants to give special mention for Patrick Whitty who has contributed a lot in the SCN Wiki, giving other members a place to learn (see the Troubleshooting Guide) and contribute, as well as a platform for well-structured content. Patrick has scored a lot of points on SCN but has been kind enough to give room for other people to be recognized as Topic Leaders in the NetWeaver area.

Congratulations! I’ll be reaching out to you to send you the certificate per email and see if you plan to attend TechEd. Unfortunately, there will be no free pass.
We added 3 new categories in key strategic areas that have shown a lot of popularity (Cloud, Developer Center, and HANA). We wanted to highlight areas that are established trends, important to the community and strategic to SAP. As you know, because they are fairly new, these topics wouldn’t have been singled out if we hadn’t created new point categories for them.
Additional recognition and certificates are one thing, but I know that most of you are waiting for something more tangible, something valuable in your daily activities. With a new, more social SCN, we have opportunities to make your engagement fun and help you grow your expertise and showcase it in the community and outside as well. I will be working with my new manager Laure Cetin to introduce extensive game mechanics later this year. This will change the way people are rewarded for their contributions on SCN, and you can also expect changes in how we recognize Topic Leaders, experts in their fields. More information will come soon in a series of blogs as we kick off the project.
