I want to raise the SAP BUSINESS ONE blogs issue here? Does anyone consider those blogs issued for each and any patch of B1 to be useful?
I don't question the value of the info per se but isn't this to be found on the marketplace anyway? And if this info is to be expexted on SDN, wouldn't a WIKI space be enough? Or a sticky forum?
The problem that I have with those blogs is the fact that they clutter the Most Recent page, which is my favourite entry point to read interesting things all across SAP. Patch annoucements is one of the few things I am definitely not interested to see HERE. Now, I could filter out B1, but I want to read new stuff/content about B1 too.
What do you think?
As a proof of my argument, I conider to build a service marketplace grabber, which collects information from service.sap.com on each of the following components:
SAP application components (SAP APO, SAP ERP, SAP R/3, SAP R/3 Enterprise, SAP CRM, SAP SCM, SAP SRM, SAP SEM)
SAP industry-specific components (SAP Banking, SAP Discrete Industries, SAP High Tech)
SAP NetWeaver and the components SAP BW, SAP Web AS, SAP Enterprise Portal, SAP KW, SAP MDM, SAP Exchange Infrastructure, SAP Mobile Engine
SAP Technology components (SAP Solution Manager, SAP Marketplace Connector)
SAP XApps (SAP xApps for Mobile Business, SAP XEM, SAP XPD, SAP XRPM)
SAP Solutions for Electronic Marketplaces (SAP MarketSet)
Country Specific add-ons (SAP HR-CEE, CCIS, C-CEE, HR-CIS)
Supplementary Components for Cross Industry Solutions (ABC Connector, BackWeb Infocenter, SAP PLM Recipe Management, SAP Records Management, SAP Workforce Management)
SAP front-end components (SAP GUI, SAP ITS, SAP IGS)
Plug-Ins (SAP Plug-Ins, SAP Solution Tools Plug-Ins)
Additional Components (SAP SPAM/SAINT Update, SAP DB, MaxDB, SAP Kernel, SAProuter, SAP Exchange Connector)
I'll (autmatically) create a BLOG announcing each and every patch of the afore mentionend components (correctly tagged of course).
Will anyone of you consider this to be a great service of mine? Do you mind if you have to search for real content really hard between all the patch announcements?
Feedback welcome. anton
