The Party in 2015:

Following the success of last year’s event, where participants worked with Made in a Free World (MIAFW) data to find solutions to modern-day slavery, this year’s event will be even bigger and better. This year, we’re excited to announce a new non-profit partnership with GENYOUth. We’ll be using SAP BusinessObjects Cloud, a revolutionary new cloud analytics tool, to solve real-world problems.

Bigger and better in 2016:
On Tuesday, Sept. 20 from 7:30 – 10:30 PM, SAP data visualization experts, mentors, judges and DataGeniuses will join forces and use data to take on the complex challenges in youth health and wellness today, looking for solutions to help end childhood obesity and promote healthy lifestyle choices. GENYOUth will also be at the event to provide expert guidance with the data.

With a mission to nurture children’s health and wellness in the school environment and surrounding community, GENYOUth is committed to building partnerships and empowering youth to own change. Motivated to tackle pressing problems such as childhood obesity early on, the organization promotes the values of healthy eating and physical activity to students.

All-star Lineup:

The judging panel includes:

  • Jayne Landry, Global VP and GM of Business Intelligence
  • Byron Banks, VP of Product Marketing, Analytics & Big Data
  • SAPMentor Tammy Powlas
  • Global Head of University Alliances, Ann Rosenberg
  • 3 GENYOUth representatives

15+ DataGenius Experts will be mentoring and leading teams in the room as they work together to help identify the links between childhood obesity, education and lifestyle habits.
