The New SCN: Simple, Advanced, Powerful
The SAP Community Network (SCN), has consistently been recognized for being progressive in how it engages with its huge community members. In keeping with our constant push to evolve and serve users, SCN has initiated a migration of its platform to Jive SBS 5.0, which will enable an even more open, collaborative and easier-to-use environment for users. To help you understand the reasons behind this change, and to educate users on how to use Jive, we've created this repository of useful tools and resources.
