What is a Blog and What Can I Use it For?

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."




  • A blog is similar to a wiki in regards to the content it can display, however where a wiki can be edited by anyone with access to it, a blog can only be edited by the individual who created it.

  • Visually, a blog can range from a simple text document to a rich media experience.  An easy to navigate toolbar allows you a range of options - from text formatting to the inclusion of links, images and even external documents and video.  
    The tools used to edit a Jam blog, wiki and discussion are actually identical, so you only need to learn to use one set of tools for all three functions.

  • Similar to the wiki, a blog can be used for just about anything.  Any piece of static information you'd like to broadcast to others can be conveyed in a blog – the possibilities are nearly endless!

    For instance:
    • Company Newsletter/Announcements
    • New Hire/Onboarding Information
    • Project Notes/Project Post Mortems
    • Company or Department Documentation and Operation Manuals
    • FAQs
    • Job Descriptions
    • IT Network Instructions
    • Company/Product Best Practices
    • And many, many more.
