Why it is essential to have a meaningful community? It is easy to work or stay in isolation. If one like to stay isolated or ignorant. It’s their wish. But, being social animal, we can’t do this. Thus, for individual, community exhibit sense of cohesive results in companionship & support system. In this era of information technology community importance & association is significant, as frequency of change in organisation/customer expectation, technologies, jobs, roles, homes and locations is hard to control. And its not individual, whereas, everyone benefits from a strong community. If an individual is part of community, then they will have sense allied, collaborate, imperative, noteworthy, respected and protected.
Our community, SAP Community Network(SCN), provides global platform to help in developing supportive and interactive commune positively within individual to share a vested interest. Being active in the community can give more vital and interesting life, expand networks and feel confident. Through this people are better connected. And it helps thriving environment which assist us in learning, sharing & supporting more efficient across SAP & related technologies.
This gives me an opportunity to congratulating SCN – SAP Community Network (Formerly, SDN – SAP Developer Network) for completing 10 glorious years towards SAP community service, engagements & collaborations.
I really feel proud to part of this community and relish every moment I spend here. Community participation helped me in following way
- It provided me with intellectual, a reward which is joy of sharing & mental satisfaction.
- It helped me collaborative. Help me brings people together globally.
- It assisted me personal growth and self admiration.
- It helps me in learning & application. I’m able to share my experience & assist others with learning.
- It makes a difference.keeping me updated on new technology, idea & trend.
- It encourages responsibility and assist me making a difference.
- It gives me a chance to give back, what I earned from SAP Career.
Every journey has its own moments & milestones. So, do I:
This association formerly start immediately after my certification in 2007. When receiving my S-User Id communication. That communication stated some the online links, where I can use my S-User authentication. And SDN was one of them.
Some moments of self satisfaction during this association.
These I still relish and it gives me a satisfaction that I’m no more in shadow.
Apart from SAP SD contribution, whenever time permits I also participated in discussion for MM, FI & PS spaces.
Sometimes hear following statements from few people in my professional network:
“What is SCN/SDN?
“I don’t know SCN/SDN.
“I heard about SCN/SDN, but, use it.”
For me this means, they are really fortunate that God had bless/provided them either with really best intellect or really great team/colleague to help/guidance them.
So, I Iike to conclude with, “learn to share & learn from sharing…” But, don’t consider SCN as Training Center or Helpline.
