Crowdsourcing is essentially an open call to a group of people or the public to develop a technology, design an object, or, in the case of SAP, generate ideas for new software and innovation. Because crowdsourcing involves a large number of participants who usually have a direct connection with the end product, it has the potential to deliver more relevant and fresh ideas than conventional R&D. After all, no one knows where there is room for improvement in a given SAP solution better than the partners and customers who work with the software on a daily basis.
In the Idea Place, the entire SAP ecosystem can submit, comment, and vote on ideas for software improvements and innovation.
