What a day!  Full of enjoyment, excitement and lot of learning!!

Thanks to the Leon Limson and his SIT’s members who organized this event. In this, I got a chance to express my views on SAP HANA Cloud Platform Gamification Service.

Here is the contents from my slide deck

What is Gamification and its relevance?

To explain Gamification to the audience I have used the standard definition which is

Gamification is use of game design elements in non-game context

                                                                                    [Deterding et al. 2011]

This means that use of game design elements such as points, badges, levels, missions and leader boards in non-game context something that is not really a game but idea here is to make it game-like.


Gamification is very useful to business as it is being used in various sectors like educations, government, telecommunications, social media ,eCommerce and many more. The reason is it engage and motivate people by improving their work experience and create excitement and fun. This not only improves user engagement and adoption but also improves productivity, satisfaction, people morale and helps in making better decisions.

Integrating into an application


I have used my JIRA-SAP HCP GS Gamification blog series to show how easily gamification concepts can be introduced into an application using SAP HANA Cloud Platform Gamification service. This basically covers step by step detail on how game mechanics can be configured and how Gamification service API end points can be used to gamify an applications.

I really enjoyed SAP Inside Track Gurgaon and my audience of-course 🙂   as they showed good interest by asking lot of questions related to game mechanics , SAP HANA Cloud Platform Gamification service API end points  used in above SAP applications. I also liked the other presentations during the event.

      Hi David,

      Yes Success Factor Learning Management System and Jam are good scenarios for HANA Cloud Platform Gamification service.

      In both cases we can configure game mechanics using Gamification workbench provided by SAP HANA Cloud Platform Gamification service so that whenever any event trigger from SF LMS of kind like enroll for a course, complete a course/training

      or from Jam social collaboration like write an blog , join the group, publish any event etc then achievements like Points, Badges can be assigned to the user.


      Further we can also create Missions, Leader board, Levels etc using  SAP HANA Cloud Platform Gamification service. I hope this helps.

      Best Regards,
