The event gathered 14 committed partners who collectively developed 15 functional prototypes within a week. These prototypes were unveiled in two Demo Jam sessions held on September 8, 2023. Among the competitors, Crave InfoTech claimed the 2nd Runner-Up spot with its Intelligent Customer Segmentation Reporting and Analysis solution. Let’s rewind and relive all the excitement.
Hack2Build Journey: The Contest of Champions
At its heart, Hack2Build aims to accelerate prototyping initiatives, driving market validation, use-case exploration, and technology adoption among SAP partners. This platform allows participants to refine their ideas and gain hands-on experience with SAP technologies and expert support in nurturing these concepts into prototypes. Beyond the hackathon, participants also learn how to package their solutions for go-to-market.
During the action-packed week (from 5th to 8th September), the partners tapped into their creativity and technical skills to build potent prototypes using SAP Analytics Cloud and SAP Datasphere. The best part about the event was the contributions from carefully curated specialist teams, including the SAP Co-Innovation Lab and product management units from SAP Analytics Cloud and SAP Datasphere.
