As you may heard there is an mobile app for the SAP TechEd conference Las Vegas. Check out the SAP TechEd Conference webpage and download the app.
I am curious as my SAP TechEd Team (for SAP Ecosystem & Channels) was asked if we would like to join with a special badge. And we “own” one – the SAP Partner Champion Badge!
How can I unlock the “SAP Partner Champion” mission?

Why these Badges? Why this app?
“gamification, gamification, gamification”! Do you know “Foursquare”? Apps like this are used more and more (yes and also in a business world – hey, I just do remember the days when we laughed about social networks as part of our business communications).
Event planners (and here our wonderful TechEd planners) are also turning their attention to “games”. To be honest, who does not love gaming? I (as a attendee) am now asked to get in action, to jump from one level to another, earn rewards, unlock badges, and to compete with other attendees (on which place is my name on the TechEd leaderboard??).
But gamification isn’t just about fun and games. Event planners do use gamification to turn attendees into more engaged participants, and there’s good evidence that this can be an effective strategy.

— Attention!! The App is currently only for SAP TechEd Las Vegas, but will soon (after Las Vegas) be tailored for Amsterdam!.. Once it is online and available for Amsterdam you will receive an official note and you can find an announcement on the SAP TechEd Conference webpage.
Hey, I do really look forward to participate my sessions and to unlock my “SAP Partner Champion” Badge! 🙂 Enjoy the app and have a great show!
