About the Hackathon


To foster entrepreneurial spirit, SAP offers students the opportunity to participate in free hackathons and other coding competitions. The goal is to introduce students to cutting-edge SAP® technologies as well as to enhance their IT skills and innovative thinking. During our hackathons, students will get hands-on experience using SAP´s latest technologies as well as support from on-site SAP domain experts and mentors. Within a limited time frame, they will collaborate and co-innovate with fellow students in small teams to develop solutions to real business cases.


SAP Customer Experience Live is SAP´s largest CRM conference worldwide. This year SAP is inviting partners, customers, young professionals, and students for a 24-hour hackathon before the conference, focusing on business ideas in the areas of commerce, marketing, sales, and service.


Join us in developing disruptive cloud business solutions based on SAP Cloud Platform following the microservice approach featured in the newest additions to the SAP Customer Experience product portfolio, such as a solution for sales performance management.


The hackathon goes from 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 9, until 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 10. That’s 24 hours of coding, running overnight. After that, teams will present their solutions to a panel of judges including business, technology, and industry leaders, who will recognize the best results.
