The wait is over! I know many of you are looking forward to finding out who are the SCN Topic Leaders for the contest period August 1, 2012 to July 31, 2013. Thank you for your patience as I put this list together, it is longer than it has ever been 🙂

As explained in my earlier blog post, the program now recognizes more members in many diverse areas, thus representing the breadth of contributions on SCN. I hope that you will find the list below meaningful and that it will help you get to know people in your area of interest.

As a reminder, people listed here earned at least 440 points in the contest period, in a space where topic expertise can be determined – certain areas such as Getting Started or Events are not included.

Perks

Unfortunately we are not able to give a free TechEd pass to the Topic Leaders, we didn’t do it in the previous years either. But if you are making plans to come we would like to know about it so that we give you the opportunity to meet the SCN team and SAP Mentors there, and to get well-deserved recognition on stage at the DemoJam event.

You will soon receive an Acknowledgement of Achievement per e-mail and a new shiny badge on SCN.

Acknowledgements

Many thanks to Bunchball and Sean Yang for helping me put this list together, as well as Audrey Stevenson Jeanne Carboni and Chip Rodgers for the guidance as we worked together to update the program.

Thank you to the SCN Moderators and Space Editors who reviewed the list with me.

Kudos and Thank-Yous to SAP employees who support the community in many ways but are not listed here:

Rui Nogueira for his work to encourage community engagement around the HANA Cloud Developer Platform

Juergen Schmerder behind the scenes of the Developer Community, organizing InnoJam events across the worlds and supporting the geeky SAP fans with various programs and activities

Diem Lam who manages the University Alliances Community

SCN Team members such as Jason Lax, who answers many community questions in the SCN Support space, Audrey Stevenson who manages gamification with me, and Mark Finnern who manages the SAP Mentor program together with Ali Samieivafa and Maria Farrales.

I don’t want these people to think that they are forgotten, because they did earn a significant amount of points as part of their jobs in the contest year. Thank you guys for all your efforts with these programs!

    Hi Everyone,

    I’d just like to say congratulations to all SCN Topic Leaders of 2012-2013, and also to SCN itself for making it happen. 😀

    Have a nice day everyone.


    Best regards,

    Hi Laure

    The write up says, not all will be getting the free passes.

    Unfortunately we are not able to give a free passes to all Topic Leaders, we never did it, but we will reach out to all of you to find out who is planning to come to SAP TechEd. We want to give you the opportunity to meet the SCN team and SAP Mentors there, and to get well-deserved recognition on stage at the DemoJam event.”

    I was just curious to know ,would the listed members here, get the free pass for the Tech ed?

    I guess probably many here would be having the same doubt.

    Kindly Clarify.

    Regards,

    Sara

      Hi,

      Unfortunately, the answer is NO. The topic leaders will be getting an email along with the Topic Leader certificate seeking whether they will be attending any TechEd Event. If so, they will be called up on stage during the start of the DemoJam Event on the First day of SAP TechEd.

      Hope it clears many confusions,

      (And this is according to my knowledge. You can wait for Laure’s Official confirmation! )

      Cheers,

      Kiran

      Hi Sara,

      > I was just curious to know ,would the listed members here, get the free pass for the Tech ed?

      I was wondering about the same, but then found the answer in the previous blog post about the

      SCN Topic Leader program update.

      And as always, I am looking forward to hearing your feedback. Please note that as in the past years SCN Topic Leaders are not eligible to get a free pass to SAP TechEd.                  

      Regards

      Stefan

      Sorry if it was confusing Sara, I reworded this paragraph and I hope it’s clearer now. As Kiran said below, no we don’t give passes.

      Best,

      Laure

    Congratulations to the three leaders in the workflow space (Sue, Anjan and Rick).

    The amount of time and effort they spend in there is dizzying… I don’t know how they manage to do anything else, like hold down a day job 🙂

    They are supremely patient with all the ‘newbies’ as well.

    The rest of us can only look on in amazement…

    congrats

    Hi Laure Cetin

       First my heartiest thanks for your effort to prepare the Topic Leader List for 2012-2013.

    One small query I have, like previous year(2011) is there any provision for Topic Leader for Free SAP Certification Voucher in this year? 

    Waiting for your reply.

    Thanks Again,

    Anjan

      Hi Laure Cetin

      Thanks for your effort. I do appreciate.

      Just having same concern with Anjan.

      And one more concern, if you have time plz explain to me.

      Unfortunately we are not able to give a free TechEd pass to the Topic Leaders, we didn’t do it in the previous years either. But if you are making plans to come we would like to know about it so that we give you the opportunity to meet the SCN team and SAP Mentors there, and to get well-deserved recognition on stage at the DemoJam event.

      You will soon receive an Acknowledgement of Achievement per e-mail and a new shiny badge on SCN.”

      => how can we make plan to meet SCN team and SAP mentor at DemoJam event? and when will an Acknowledgement of Achievement be issued and released through email?

      Regards,

      Woody

        Hi Woody,

        You will receive the email soon with a pdf certificate and information about what we need from you in order to organize TechEd activities. Will you be coming to TechEd yourself? Which one?
        Sean Yang and Jodi Fleischman are working together to create the certificates, it’s a lot of work and I know they’re doing their best to ensure that we send these emails soon.

        Best,

        Laure

    2. Laure Cetin Post author

      Hi Anjan,

      Thanks for the feedback. Last year we didn’t give a free certification to Topic Leaders because SAP Education had another program going on to reward contributors. But it is important for me to hear from you and others (e.g. Rick Bakker our latest Member of the Month) that it is a valuable perk for you. So I will reach out to my colleagues with SAP Education to see if they are interested in doing this again this year. This time the list is longer so I can’t promise anything on their behalf.

      I’ll add this to my To Do list, please be patient as this is TechEd season and I have a few urgent things to attend to first.

      Thanks!

      Laure

        Laure Cetin, I got a question here. Last time when I went to SAP Teched I got a free yellow color badge written “SCN the way to SAP Teched” with a symbol of flight in it, may I know where that is going to be applicable ?

          Hi Midun,

          Do you mean a round yellow pin that you can pin on your shirt? This was for a fun outreach campaign we did last year as “Scouts”. I don’t think we’re doing this again this year. And that had nothing to do with Topic Leader recognition for your information.

          Regards,
          Laure
