Call for Participants: SMB Innovation Summit Hackathon 2020
HERE WE GO AGAIN!
After an incredible result in the 2019 edition, we are going to run the SAP SMB Innovation Summit Hackathon in 2020.
We were amazed by the quality of the prototypes developed this year and I am sure SAP Business One and SAP Business ByDesign partners will reach the next level in 2020.
There is no better occasion for you to experiment with the Intelligent Enterprise and to build innovative solutions with the help of SAP Experts.
This is also a great opportunity to feature your team and your company for the entire SMB ecosystem, win incredible prizes (which I envy) and also network with other partners, SAP product experts and Solution Architects.
How does it work?
As usual, the coding marathon will happen during the first day of each innovation summit in Palma de Mallorca, Manila and Cancun. Right after lunch, we will gather in a room and code for the next ~9 hours.
We want you to focus on your prototype/concepts and not to worry about infrastructure and configurations. You will have access to Business One and ByDesign environments that we will provide. Also, the Building Blocks will help you to implement several intelligent technologies so you can create incredible solutions. We are updating the list with more resources.
Who can join?
Everyone that is registered to the SMB Innovation summit. The Hackathon is focused on developers, of course. But we also need consultants to help foster the ideas and support the coders that are putting everything together. Salespeople are also welcome and can help with the prototype demos, for example.

How to Register?
The Hackathon happens during the SMB Innovation Summit 2020. You MUST be registered to the summit of the same location you plan to join the hackathon.
Just confirm your participation below:
- EMEA – Palma de Mallorca – 19/Feb
- Americas – Cancun – 13-16/October – POSTPONED
- APJ – Manila – 02/June CANCELLED (Let’s do it in 2021)
I heard from a lot of managers that they were not aware of the hackathon, otherwise, they would have brought more developers for it.
So if you are a developer, create awareness inside your company, talk to your manager, assembly a team and join us!
This is the chance to feature your team to the entire SAP SMB community at the most important event in our market while winning prizes and having fun, that doesn’t come that often.
I am very proud of the prizes we are going to deliver this year, several nice gadgets like drones, portable sound speakers, smartwatches, noise-canceling headphones and more.
Our colleagues of the SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) will award a free SAP Certification for the Hackathon winner and also 30% discount for the other 2 finalists.
Don’t worry if you are not #1, you still get an awesome t-shirt to rock the intelligent enterprise wherever you go.
Full list to be published in the wiki. Stay tuned.

Could it be a good fit for SMB Innovation hackathon?
You have to create something during the hackathon or to enhance your current solution. We will judge only what was created during the 9 hours 🙂
You could use your NLP knowledge to develop a new prototype 🙂
