It's that time of year again – when we invite students in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) to create innovative BI applications for a chance at our 15,000€ prize fund! We're looking for university-level computing and economics students to create outstanding analytics and planning solutions on the arcplan 7 platform that solve real business pains. Students can apply individually or in groups in three categories:
- Innovation: applications that are novel in their visualization, methodology, or technical approach
- Fast Mover: solutions that have been developed in a short time span or can be deployed quickly
- Business Excellence: applications that aim to improve the quality of business decisions
Each winner, selected by a jury of industry and media experts, will receive 5,000€. Last year's winners will be presenting their solutions at our arc|planet user conference in October. Winners of the 2013 competition will also get this invaluable exposure to DACH companies at next year's arc|planet.
Entrants should be as creative as possible, developing solutions such as management cockpits, web-based analysis and reporting applications, balanced scorecards, or anything in between. There's just one condition: projects must be developed during the period from September 1, 2012 to February 28, 2013 as part of an ongoing study program or college-related internship.
