Are you ready to become a Social Hero?

We’re getting excited about seeing everyone at the upcoming SAP TechEd conference in Las Vegas. This year, in addition to all the amazing sessions, keynotes and show floor activities, we have a challenge set just for you!

We know you’re just as committed to the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development as SAP is, with everyone working to do their part. For SAP TechEd 2018, we’re inviting you to turn your attention to UN Global Goal #14: Life Below Water and #12: Responsible Consumption and Production. Specifically, to the plastics pollution problem.

Of the 6.3 billion tons of plastic waste that we have accumulated, just 9% has been recycled and 12% has been incinerated. That leaves 79% in landfills or the natural environment, with 8 million tons of plastic added to our oceans each year

To address this problem, we’re looking to you, our Social Heroes, to dedicate some time (and have a little fun) creating impactful use cases using data and intelligent technologies. We want to see what you can do with SAP technologies including machine learning, the Internet of Things, blockchain, advanced analytics, and cloud app development. From data beginners to data experts, this event is for attendees with a wide range of experience.

So what do you say? Are you up for the challenge? Then join our Social Hero Ideathon on the evening of October 3rd. Light refreshments will be provided during the event to keep your minds fueled and bellies full.

Participants will self-select into teams and then present their ideas to a panel of SAP judges. The team with the best idea will be awarded with an innovation prize pack (in addition to SAP goodies), and claim their title as the 2018 Social Heroes at SAP TechEd Las Vegas! Prize packs will include a mix of items—from Google Home Minis, to Raspberry Pi kits. There are prizes to be won!
