One master student in information systems, Mathilde Krause, was part of the winning team at the SAP InnoJam in Hannover. With her team, she had to develop a solution to increase the visibility of IT donations and their impact within non-profit organization. She will have the opportunity to participate at the next SAP InnoJam in Las Vegas this Summer. Mathilde’s classmate Amelie Pipoz won the second place.
From March 7 to 8, four HEC Lausanne students in information systems attended the SAP InnoJam in Hannover, which took part during the CeBit. More than 100 university students across the Europe joined this experience that consisted in designing and developing a software within 30 hours, using SAP’s recent technologies. Students were dispatched in teams of 8-10 before one challenge was assigned to each team. The challenges were based on a real problem that companies or associations were facing. For instance, betterplace.org wished to redesign the volunteer matching experience for organizations and the volunteers in order to be able to track successful matches with special emphasis on mobile technology, or Stifter-Helfen, who wanted to increase the visibility of IT donations and their impact within non-profit organizations. For each challenge, at least one project’s representative was on site to present the challenge and help students.
After more than 30 hours of intense effort, the participants received their prize on the SAP stand at Cebit.
