SAP Community Network: Year in Review – Best of 2010

It was a year without parallel.  As social media, social networking, and social commerce gained in stature in the broader marketplace, SAP Community Network continued to refine, extend, and leverage social business as a strategic mechanism to deliver positive results to our customers, our partners, and SAP.  This past year, we reached many milestones and set new records of achievement.

As we close-down 2010, I want to share several highlights from the SAP communities, the SAP TechEd events, and SAP EcoHub that we can all take pride in delivering together.
