SAP Lab fosters innovation through joint projects

A private online collaboration workspace is just one of the projects that has stemmed from SAP AG’s Co-Innovation Lab in Palo Alto, Calif.

The Lab was established in June 2007 – with support from founding sponsors Hewlett Packard, Intel, NetApp and Cisco Systems – and provides an environment that supports the execution of joint projects towards developing new business applications and technologies that address specific customer needs.

Through blogs, wikis and online forums, the collaboration workspace is enabling 13 different programs at SAP to be more effective and efficient, bringing together more than 3,700 expert users from more than 275 companies, participating in more than 200 unique workspaces. Users include partners and customers participating in SAP’s communities of innovation, including the Enterprise Services Community, the Business Process Expert community and the SAP Co-Innovation Lab itself.

Other projects include support for enterprise services-oriented architecture management, a disaster recovery tool, and a real-time reporting tool for manufacturers.

Besides enabling joint projects, the Lab also supports other collaboration-rich activities like seminars and Webinars, thought leadership forums, and onsite and online collaborations with SAP and other corporations.
