Get to Know the Winners and Innovators!

Now, I work for SAP, and the SAP Service and Support team that I work in is called SAP Custom Development.  In case you don’t know about us, we are in the business of designing and developing mission-critical business solutions that address the individualized and competitively differentiating needs of the customer. These innovative solutions can extend or enhance a customer’s base SAP software on premise, on the SAP HANA platform and in the cloud.  Basically, our team lives and breathes innovation.

For the last few DemoJams, teams from SAP Custom Development have been in the winner’s circle (check out the winners from Las Vegas in November).  So it came as no surprise to me to learn that my colleagues were again the top finishers at DemoJam Bangalore.  In fact, the top 4 teams were all from our organization!  While all teams that entered deserve recognition for their efforts (it’s not easy coming up with new and exciting ideas), I’d like to personally congratulate all the SAP Custom Development  employees who took the challenge. Their entries focused on making life safer and easier for everyone – from aiding in search & rescue missions to easing commutes and making homes safer for children.


Over the next few weeks, I will be interviewing the top four winning teams to learn more about what inspires them and posting the interviews here.  For today, I’ll just give you links to the winners so you can see for yourself.

  1. Rescue Bots powered by SAP HANA helps search and rescue teams reduce risk. Team Members: Tanushree Das, Trinoy Hazarika,  Lokesh Rajak, Phanibhushan M
  2. SAP Glide: A new view on carpooling Team Members: Shailesh V, Kopperundevan K, Meet Shah, Naman Kumar
  3. Tiny Steps: Tiny steps helps monitor kids indoors and alerts parents to danger. Team Members: Pooja Jain, Priyanka Sadana, Harshit Jain, Sakshi Goel, Vaibhav Arora, Neha Varshney, Mitali Gadi
  4. EaseMyRide helps commuters on public transportation travel more comfortably. Team Members: Neha Bansal, Sudarsan Gokhale Raghunath, Amritha Dilip, Sauradipta Mishra, Ankit Saxena

      Awesome. Curious to hear more from the winners, how they came up with their innovative ideas and how they made it happen. Proud to be part of the SAP Custom Development organization - we drive innovation beyond standard.

      It was a proud moment to know that all the teams are from Custom Development Organization. Seeing the track record of Custom Development in TechEd reminds me Aristotle's quote that "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit"...  Congratulations to all the teams!
