Last week’s DataGenius SAP TechEd Las Vegas Viz-a-Thon #SAPtd
To follow up from Help Tackle Slave Labor Data at #SAPtd Vegas w/ #DataGenius – Register Now , I was honored to be a judge with SAP’s Jayne Landry, Don Ginocchio, Jamie Oswald, Ben Hafner and Adeline Lambert of Made in a Free World. I took some pictures using Animoto from my iPhone of the entries.
Information provided by SAP:
On Tuesday, Oct. 20…
• A sold-out room of DataGenius brains came together to tackle 7,000+ rows of data, with 16+ DataGenius Experts leading the way.
• 40+ top-notch University Alliances students representing 4 different schools went to work, while…
• 6 expert judges, including 2 Made in a Free World representatives, shared their feedback and insight.
After 4 hours of inspiring data wrangling and storytelling…
• 80+ DataGeniuses worked together to bring…
• 50+ SAP Lumira dashboards to life…
• And moved closer to helping free 30 million people from slavery.
I didn’t realize the event was 4 hours – time flew by very fast. I was impressed with the high quality of entries, visualizations, the abilities of teams to creatively include outside data, and then present it to a full room. Additionally students from the SAP University Alliance presented – I ask myself if I could have presented at their age, and my answer would be no.
Pictured above is SAP’s Eamon Ida – kudos to Rachel Ho, Mitush Patel and team for organizing a great event. If you participated, the SAP team encourages you to submit your viz-a-thon entry and your independent entry at www.sap.com/DataGenius

My thanks to everyone who participated last week – it was a great event and great to meet attendees, experts and fellow judges.
Love it! Thanks for sharing your story, Tammy!
We're lucky to have you as a DataGenius mentor! Thanks for taking part in the viz-a-thon and helping shape the event into an outstanding milestone.
Had fun. Glad Dell and I earned bragging rights! BTW you tagged me on my old gmail SCN ID. I'm hoping 1DX will help us kill old SCN IDs one day 😉
OK, Mike, I updated to Mike Howles
I struggle to get this to work
I am linked wrong all the time.
Congratulations on your winning entry
Thanks for your summary, Tammy! This event really does fly by!
