We had our first ever SAP Mobile InnoJam in Beijing this year, July 25th. It was a day before the China SAPPHIRE.
The Beijing Mobile InnoJam was targeted specific for partners that are working on SAP Mobile solution. The InnoJam event was announced on June 21st. We had an online kick off for participants on June 25th. During the four weeks period, our SAP Mobile experts supported the participants remotely. We really appreciate that!
During the event, we have 20 partner companies with about 60 participants handed in their applications (24 demos). There were 10 other companies that could not finish their demos on time, we would like to see you continue working on them and hopefully, we will see you soon later this year in our follow-up event.
For the 60 participants who made it to the InnoJam on July 25th, they were showcasing their apps and sharing their lessons learned and problems that they encountered. The discussions were so packed that we had to skip our breaks and continued into the demo session (and not to mention a huge rain storm that was coming to Beijing…)
We had 5 winning teams:
1. Best Business Value: Neuosoft, Patient Care
2. Best Customer Experience: Delaware, Sales anywhere!
