Come Get Social at HR 2013

SAP Jam, announced in November of 2012, brought social technologies together from SAP and SuccessFactors. See what press and analysts said:

“I can conclude that SAP is seriously attempting to provide an effective solution that’s aimed at what the industry largely believes are the remaining gaps in making social business perform at its best. …Yet I suspect…given the careful intent to get deeply into what companies do using social engagement (and its enormous captive audience of installed base), that SAP can get some big wins and stay there.”

An enterprise-wide vision for social business: SAP’s new take

Dion Hinchcliffe,

“Truth is, SAP isn’t willing to concede this market to the likes of, Jive Software, Lithium, or Microsoft, which now owns Yammer as well as SharePoint…SAP is trying to snag a big, fat portion of the next frontier in enterprise software: tools to manage interactions with employees and customers in social media  In a brash challenge to, SAP is selling new social tools for salespeople and call-center workers.”  

SAP Challenges

Julie Bort, BusinessInsider

“The risk to Salesforce if they don’t address this misplaced picture of their ecosystem…is that someone else is going have a compelling story that does. …The most direct threat, ironically may come from SAP, if they don’t shoot themselves in the their own foot. SAP GVP Sameer Patel created a compelling social ecosystem that is threaded throughout by a entirely redesigned cloud-based collaboration focused product and services line.”

“With SAP Jam, SAP moves to the front of the pack for enterprise social collaboration solutions. It is a rich, social platform that supports multiple collaboration modes, making it much more useful to wider swaths of a mid-sized to large company.”
