Innovation Award.jpgSAP is dedicated to a Run Simple approach because in today’s world, everything and everyone is connected.  Whether it is via mobile devices, social media, or connected networks of devices, we have access to immense data at our finger tips, and life as we know it is transforming.

Complexity is the enemy of the innovation, but by simplifying the way we run business, we optimize the value we can achieve. Technology is here to help along this journey, and if your organization is simplifying and transforming its business with SAP HANA, we want to hear from you. (Learn more about SAP HANA here.)

Like last year’s competition, the 2015 SAP HANA Innovation Award is already a month underway. Share your company’s SAP HANA Story and you can win up to $5K for charity.

This year, the competition has been enhanced.

Here’s what you need to do:


Identify the category under which your organization fits:

  • Analytics Wizard: Is your organization delivering real-time analytics to empower your workforce and customers?
  • Process Simplifier: Is your organization operating business critical processes in real-time
  • Technology Trailblazer: Is your company harnessing big data and/or the Internet of Things for breakthrough business results?

Once you’ve identified your category, select your Stream:

  • Business Scenario stream: For customers achieving business value with SAP HANA who went live on or after Jan 1, 2013
  • Business Application stream: For customers that have developed an innovative custom application with SAP HANA, either in production or in Proof of Concept/Prototype (new for 2015)

Share your story:

  • Create a 2-3 minute video or a 200-300 word blog that describes your SAP HANA project
  • Highlight how your company or organization is optimizing its workforce, partners, customers, and/or society by running SAP HANA technology
