One of the questions that I always get asked by people who come to SAP HCM Exchange, the internal SAP Jam Group for HCM colleagues, is how will people know what content to look at first and whom to follow to get information on specific topics.


Since the release of SAP Jam internally for SAP and SuccessFactors Employees, I have been exploring it pretty closely to see how some of the new features can solve these real world problems that we were facing.


The recommendations feature in Jam has addressed this problem we were facing to a great extend. The algorithm acts a bit like a news paper editorial team that picks the most important and most popular news and puts it on the front page. However unlike the news paper editor, the importance of the content is determined by the popularity of the content and the relevance of the content to a particular individual.

Users can also go and see more recommendations where they can filter content by day, week and month.

The SAP Jam team has taken a good first step towards making social media updates more manageable for users, particularly the new ones. I am sure that this feature is going to speedup Jam adoption and usage inside SAP.


You can read about all the features in the latest release of SAP Jam in Keith Hamrick’s blog post.

    Hi Prashanth,

    SAP Jam almost seems like an extension of SCN, even more so in your use case! Having seen your screenshots above I can certainly see the benefits of this platform.

    Best regards,

    Luke

      The Streamwork and SuccessFactors teams coming together has been wonderful. I see them putting their skills together and taking the product to the next level with every release. The product also has outstanding business and technical leadership. As you can see, I have great expectations from this team.
