Highlighting the expanding importance of India within the SAP ecosystem, the SAP Developer Network (SDN) and Business Process Expert communities in India have grown to nearly 200,000 members in the last year, showing a 100 percent increase in overall membership across the country. Weekly page views and interactions on the community sites in India have also doubled over the last year, with more than one million pages viewed per week from India alone.
