How do we select the winning team?

All participating teams have one vote and the SAS board has one vote. Teams cannot vote on their own contribution. All participating teams will record a 20-minute “showcase webinar” of their contribution(the WebEx recording will be done by SAS Institute) – Similar to a “TED talk and a live demo”.

The recording will be published on the SAS hackathon site, “Smarter Together”. On this site, you’ll also be able to cast your vote. The winner will be the team who can demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the power of analytics. The recommended evaluation criteria: Value (business or common good), the “smartness” and usability in relation to the new analytical economy and the implementation of the analytical life cycle in the contribution.

The winner will be presented and showcased at SAS Nordic Forum. The winning team will receive a trip for two to SAS Global Forum 2018 in Denver in April.
