SAP TechEd Shanghai 2012

2012 December, I had the chance to visit Shanghai for my first SAP TechEd. It was my pleasure to meet Chinese mentors, members and SCN China team on the event.  Thanks to everyone who came to SCN demo pod to support us. Because of you, I had a wonderful time and incredible experience in Shanghai!

Meet SAP Chinese Mentors

Four out of six Chinese Mentors attended SAP TechEd Shanghai 2012. On the 1st day of the event, we had a Meet SAP Mentors Session. We saw a lot of people came to SCN demo pod and were eager to talk to SAP Mentors.  I took this chance to do video interviews with SAP Mentors to know what they think about SAP Mentors Program.  You can watch the full videos by clicking links. Since the interviews were recorded in Chinese, I had translated some highlights for your reference.


        (Shengtao Tan, Qiang Sheng, Yang Lantao, Zhao Xumin)

“SAP Mentors have valuable experiences and knowledge in SAP related products or solutions and are willing to share with the community. I think that SAP Mentors can be the model of the community, help grow and develop SAP ecosystem” – Yang Lantao, Solution Expert, SAP Lab China, video

“SAP Mentors are the people who we can ask for help and support when we are facing challenges. I used to receive help from Mentors and now I would like to pay it back to the community.  I’m very honor to be a SAP Mentor and I hope I can pay it forward, pay it back!” – Zhao Xumin, General Manager, Dimension Info Tech, video

“I’m much honored to be a SAP Mentor. I feel like it’s my responsibility to grow and let more people know SAP Community Network in China.” – Qiang Sheng, Application Developer Manager, Chen Chou San Chuan Shih Pin, video

Meet SCN Chinese Members

As a community manager, it is important and also a very good chance for me to know Chinese members’ perspectives of SCN. I met a topic leader in Chinese Language Community and the winner of Demo Jam and get to know what they say about SCN…

“SCN is a very good platform for people to share and learn new knowledge. Just like Facebook and Weibo, New SCN connects us with people and topics that we are interested and keeps us up to date with the latest news. New SCN has a great improvement and is very helpful for us! ” – Chi Chu, ERP Architect, China National Offshore Oil Corp

“Thanks to SCN, I had the chance to attend Demo Jam and learn. Whenever I have questions about products and technologies, SCN is my first place to look for answers. There are so many experts on SCN and it is just like a talent pool!” – Chen Yueng Lin, Shanghai Chuang Li Info Tech

SAP Community Network is SAP TECHED to-go

Like Vegas, Madrid and Bangalore, we continued SAP Community Network is SAP TECHED to-go program in Shanghai. We successfully delivered all 2,000 buttons in 2012, spreading SAP Community to the Oriental world. We noticed that there were some people who wants to get the button but did not get one this time. We promise you we will bring more in 2013!

      Hi Sylvana,

      Excellent blog! Thank you for sharing the photos and interviews with the community!

      I love the interviews in Chinese (good example of our global community), and what the Topic Leaders, Demo Jammers and SAP Mentors have to say!

      I had a lot of fun attending TechEd in Shanghai with you, and expect the event to be even more successful in 2013. If I'm not mistaken, I think we can also expect to see a whole new 'branch' of Blog It Forward blogs coming from our Chinese Community soon!
