Perhaps first we need to talk about what the SAP Idea Place actually is. In a nutshell the Idea Place is a forum for anyone to share their ideas on how to enhance and improve almost any SAP product. And since we are in the SAP Lumira SCN Space, this is the link to the Lumira Idea Place:

SAP Lumira: Home

If you are interested in the process of how the ideas are evaluated, visit the How This Works page.

But, does it really work? In this blog, I want to specifically look at SAP Lumira and the ideas that have been delivered in 2015. I decided to do this in a matrix where I present the Idea Title (hyperlinked to the actual idea) and a very short description of the idea. In 2015, there were 27 ideas delivered, or implemented in Lumira. Additionally, there is a umber of ideas in the "Accepted" and "Under Review" state, meaning that there is a good chance these will see the light of day soon. The gears grind slowly, but grind they do.

Your ideas do count, they do get implemented and we thank everyone that has submitted an idea ((and voted for an idea) for taking the time to help us improve Lumira!

Here is the matrix of "delivered" ideas in 2015:
