Announcing the SCN Topic Leaders for 2014-2015

Since the most recent SCN Topic Leader contest came to a close on July 31, the SCN team has been enthusiastically working in the background to bring you the list of winners. For those of you who are new to the community: the SCN Topic Leader contest is a way of highlighting the most active experts in certain topics in the community.

To find out more about the 2014-2015 contest and its rules, check out this blog post by Caroleigh Deneen: Updates to SCN Topic Leader Contest | SCN.

As Caroleigh explains in that post, the first criterion for winner selection is that you be one of the top three members in a topic space in terms of points earned in that space during the 12 months of the contest period (in this case, August 1, 2014 through July 31, 2015).

Like last year, we included a point threshold as one of the criteria as well: this year the threshold is 480 points. And as was the case in the past, we applied this criterion to select active and meaningful areas of expertise—certain areas such as Getting Started or Events are not included.

It’s All About Recognition

What do the winners of this contest earn? Topic Leaders will receive an Acknowledgement of Achievement per e-mail (please be patient, it will still take some time to get those out). And of course, there will be a nice badge to post in your Me-in-3 selection on SCN!

If you are listed below as a Topic Leader, and you will be coming to SAP TechEd in Las Vegas or Barcelona (this year’s remaining venues), we would like to hear about it, as we plan to give you the opportunity to meet some folks like SAP Mentors there. Note that, unfortunately, we cannot give Topic Leaders a free pass to SAP TechEd. (We have not done that in the past either.)

A Final Word Before We Get to the List

A lot of hard work goes on in the background to prepare this list, and I want to give a shout-out to a few folks who deserve it here. Bunchball and SAP IT had a hand in providing us with the report we needed to start with, and Caroleigh Deneen and Sajid Amir were instrumental in moving the vetting process along. All of this under the unwavering support and guidance of Jeanne Carboni.

And of course, we could not have finalized the list without the SCN Moderators and Space Editors, who gave their time to help review it.

Thank you to all of you, and to other SAP employees who work unwaveringly to support this community. We could not run it without you!

And now… Join me (and Bill McDermott)  in congratulating our winners, the 2014-2015 SCN Topic Leaders!  BillClapping2.jpg
