Better, Faster, Stronger SCN

"Within the next few months, we will be running on the most robust, full-featured, scalable, extensible, integrated community and social networking platform on the planet," says SCN SVP Mark Yolton.

In 2010, the SAP Community Network had remarkable growth. More than 9 million people visited the communities, generating more than 38 million visits. The growth trend continues in 2011 with monthly visits reaching an all-time high in Q1. Our members are active, they show a high level of engagement, and they give us exceptional satisfaction ratings.

SCN has always been a community-driven platform. We know that the thousands of daily conversations and interactions inside the communities are valuable to our customers, partners, and colleagues. The SCN team strives to facilitate these conversations, make it easier to find information, easier to communicate ideas, and easier to interact.

But we've reached the wall with our current platform. In fact, SCN Senior Vice President Mark Yolton explains, "While, over the past years our platform has served us well, we cannot innovate, extend, customize, and evolve this platform fast enough or in all the directions necessary to best serve the diverse users we need to serve going forward."

Read Mark's blog to find out why we're building a Better, Faster, Stronger SCN.
