2015 oh what a year for Innovation! #saptd @sapdevs
Wow! I just can’t go over how well this SAP TechEd session has played out! Way back in 2010 when the SAP Innovation Weekend was born and later morphed into the SAP InnoJam, I only shared a little of my vision and dream but now 2015 complete I thought I should share it with everyone else.
I’ve been involved with the DemoJam at SAP TechEd now since almost the beginning having also been a host of it and of course as a founder of the now known as SAP InnoJam my dream was to see the two merge and this year we took the risk and we did just that!
SAP InnoJam this year in both Las Vegas and Barcelona was the sole chance for anyone wanting to get a chance to join us on stage for the DemoJam, you can check out lots of highlights here. What we did was cancelled the call for proposals this year and we said the only chance is to join the SAP InnoJam either as a team or an individual and then join a team – the best 6 would go on to be on the stage. In Las Vegas we had 13 teams and 6 really great ones moved on to the stage for a brilliant competition!
In Barcelona we had 18 teams, and for me a special treat as I was the one back on stage hosting those 6 best during the DemoJam.
I was able to see my dream come true first hand, SAP InnoJam is now the sole path to recognition, the only chance to get on stage at the DemoJam and 2016 means that we have 3 SAP InnoJam events and we hope to see all of you there competing to get your chance on stage as well!
