Attention students in Germany, Austria & Switzerland! arcplan’s student relations arm, arc|ademy, is holding its first annual BI Challenge! A total of 15,000 euros in prize money awaits the winners.

Challenge Categories
We’re inviting students who are using the BI platform arcplan Enterprise 7 as part of their studies to create an arcplan application and enter it into one of three categories: “Innovation,” “Fast Movers,” and “Business Excellence.” In the first category, the winning application will be particularly innovative in its visualization, methodology, or technical approach. Fast Movers are applications that have been deployed in an extraordinarily short span of time or can be deployed particularly quickly. Finally, the Business Excellence category is for applications that aim to improve the quality of business decisions. Each winner will receive 5,000 euros.

Submission Details
Students wishing to apply (as individuals or as teams of up to six people) for the arc|ademy BI Challenge 2012 can submit their applications as presentations – in PowerPoint or PDF format (in German) – or as arcplan documents together with the databases. These documents should not contain any confidential information and the overall size of the application should not exceed 10Mb. When submitting only a presentation, temporary access to a live test system should be provided.
