SAP NEWSBYTE — Millions of new subscribers across industries, geographies and use cases are relying on SAP Jam for results oriented enterprise collaboration, according to SAP SE (NYSE: SAP). According to latest data from SAP, subscribers of SAP Jam, a product that SAP released in the fall of 2012, grew from 20 million in mid-2015 to 34 million subscribers currently – an increase of 70 percent in less than 12 months.
SAP Jam delivers collaboration in the workplace connecting customers, partners and colleagues with the needed experts, business insight, process and content to transform how they engage and work every day. The rise in subscriber growth adoption can be attributed to SAP Jam’s unique design to integrate collaboration directly into the tools, work processes and technologies that employees use every day to make them more effective. This contextual, value-based approach to collaboration brings together the right people at the right times to drive real business results.
“SAP Jam gives us a new space where our employees can collaborate, share ideas and integrate communications,” said Alejandro Bonsignore, Systems Strategy Manager at Argentinian energy company YPF. “Their ability to integrate with our existing intranet system takes our social capabilities to new levels, allowing our employees greater engagement and interaction with our content. We chose SAP Jam to help us experience the real benefits of employee collaboration, and we look forward to seeing its impact on our business.”
Recent innovations introduced to the SAP Jam portfolio across key lines of business include:
- For corporate learning and human resources, SAP Jam recently announced a new offering that helps companies to foster a culture of continuous learning. This product comes integrated with the SAP SuccessFactors Learning solution to blend both formal and peer-to-peer learning.
- For E-Commerce and retailers, SAP Jam recently announced a new Communities product that integrates with SAP Hybris Commerce to expand a company’s brand reach by delivering real-time product and service-related insights to aid consumers on their buying journey.
- For IT operations, SAP Jam recently enhanced its work pattern capabilities that improve real-time ticketing systems and improve interaction between IT and the rest of the business.
- For companywide collaboration, SAP Jam Collaboration is increasingly deployed to augment or replace on-premise intranets, due to its cloud-based, modern and easy to use approach to collaboration. SAP’s HANA Cloud platform brings the needed integration capabilities to connect SAP Jam to SAP and non-SAP systems.
“We’ve heard a common industry refrain that enterprise collaboration is too challenging or too fragmented to drive real business results,” said Sameer Patel, GM, Collaboration and Communities at SAP. “Four years ago, we set out to change this. Our recent growth is a sure sign that not only is results driven collaboration possible, but that it can transform how employees, customers and partners digitally connect and engage. As a result, we’re extremely privileged to see millions of new subscribers – equal to the population of Tokyo – embrace our cloud collaboration platform to drive business performance.”
