Let's face it: today's business is connected and collaboration is key to supporting it. And the SAP® Jam™ social software platform is a leading force in driving it. With more than 15 million users, SAP Jam helps companies to evolve the way they work and invent new approaches for the work of tomorrow. Today, SAP SE SAP, -0.45% announced that it has been named a leader in IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Enterprise Social Networks 2014 Vendor Assessment*, as a result.

SAP Jam helps customers solve problems and drive results via its market-first "work patterns," pre-built processes that bring together the people, data and decision-making capabilities when and where people need them.

Take SAP Jam customer, Sharks Sports & Entertainment, Inc. A privately held corporation that owns and operates a number of sports properties, including the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League, the company implemented SAP Jam to improve employee collaboration, increase engagement and enhance understanding of common corporate goals.

Sharks Sports & Entertainment, Inc.'s improvement of employee collaboration is just the latest in a growing trend of businesses transforming collaboration through the use of social tools. According to the IDC MarketScape, "Enterprise social networks (ESNs), and more broadly, social workflow, can play a significant role in this [digital business] when thought of as both a platform and a social workflow embedded in business systems where users are getting work done."
