Heidelberg, March 9, 2018 – For the second time in a row, the Datavard team reached the final at the SAP InnoJam during the SAP Live Campus in Basel. Seven teams competed in a roughly 30-hour coding challenge to develop innovative solutions based on the SAP Cloud Platform. The goal: to expand business processes with future technologies such as Blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT), Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics.
The five-member Datavard team, The Datavardians, developed an application called Carchain based on the blockchain technology. The application collects vehicle data such as usage, maintenance history, and current status, and displays it on a user-friendly dashboard. So the driver is always in the picture about the driving behavior, upcoming repairs and the current market value of the vehicle. A jury panel with experts from IT, development and business, selected three best teams to showcase their solutions in front of the SAP Live Campus audience on the third day. The Datavardians, the only non-German-speaking team and the only team with female participation, presented their application in front of 2500 participants of the SAP Live Campus. The result: a proud third place and tickets for a football match in Munich.
