To enter the Contest, students must first register their team on this website.Each team should consist of 2 members and a school can register any number of teams. Participating teams will submit their original app idea by sending a 4 minutes video presentation (incorporating and explaining the Design thinking approach and SAP HANA) upon confirmation of their registration. Students are required to explain their app idea using the steps of design thinking:
- Empathize – Understand the problem at hand
- Define – Research the problem and the topic
- Ideate – Come up with ideas that leverage mobile technology and real time data to solve the problem
- Prototype – Come up with the design and functionality of the solution, using any medium (paper, PowerPoint, white boards, etc.)
- Test – Survey the idea among users and gather feedback. Be sure to take advantage of this platform’s functionality when performing this step. You must do this step before you complete your entry.
Each team can submit only one entry. The sooner you submit your idea, the more feedback you are likely to receive. The final date to submit an idea is August 4th.
Students submissions will be judged using these criteria: Desirability, Feasibility, Viability, Creativity. Top ten teams will have the opportunity to work with SAP developers to build out their app idea. Based on the prototype submission, the top five finalist teams will be shortlisted who get to compete and present their prototype of app idea in the DemoJam at SAP Techniversity, Bangalore on 28th September 2013!
