SAP has opened entries for its 2015 HANA Innovation Awards, seeking customers who have found innovative ways to use SAP HANA to drive business value.
Entries describing how SAP HANA has positively impacted the organisation should be submitted via http://innovation.saphana.com by 5 April 2015. Partners are also encouraged to submit entries on behalf of their clients.
There are three categories for the award:
1. Analytics Wizard – delivering real-time analytics to empower workforce and customers,
2. Process Simplifier – operating business critical processes in real-time,
3. Technology Trailblazer – harnessing Big Data or the Internet of Things for breakthrough results.
Each category has two streams – business scenario (for customers that had a HANA go-live date of 1 Jan 2013 or later) and business application (proof of concept or in production).
The top three finalists in each category-stream will be those who receive the most votes from the community, and then a panel of judges will select the final winners.
All finalists will receive a pass to SAPPHIRE NOW, and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place-getters respectively will have a $5000, $3000 or $2000 donation made to a selected charity by SAP.
