arcplan arc|ademy BI Challenge 2013 was won by two information technology students from the university of applied sciences Cologne. They won the categories Fast Mover and Business Excellence.
In the category Fast Mover the Jury decided to award the application "Fuel Change – Fuel through ages“. It is based on arcplan Enterprise 7 and supports users to choose the right car. The solution provides insight in the development of fuel prizes and the average fuel consumption of a car and calculates the cost related to the driven distance. Furthermore the solution offers interfaces to online map providers that enable users to retrieve the most cost-efficient routes.
The arcplan Enterprise 7-based "somingo Management Dashboard" won the Business Excellence category. It brings together social media data, competitive information, revenues, and other financial data such as EBITDA in a unique market analysis and leverages the decision making process in organizations. Especially impressing: Data such as stock prices and facebook comments are automatically stored in the somingo online database via PHP scripts.
There was no awardee in the category Innovation this year because no submission was able to convince the Jury. We are looking forward to receive innovative submissions this year.
