The ALM-athon is a Hackathon  from SAP in the ALM space powered by the

SAP ALM Summit EMEA 2022

It focuses on SAP Partners who want to leverage ALM solutions and develop own extensions with SAP ALM tools.

The CHALLENGE 2022 was given as follows:

"How could partner solutions or 3rd party integrations add benefits
to customers by extending SAP Cloud ALM with standard APIs?"

The challenge started with an optional ideation workshop at ALM partner conference in May, and
it ends at SAP ALM Summit EMEA with the pitches of the TOP teams.
The winning team will be decided by voting of all summit participants.

Stay tuned I will inform here in that blog, who the winner will be.

The ALM-athon is a virtual challenge between as many teams as wanted to join. This year 12 teams hase registered. Only the TOP 6 team pitches will be presented live on stage at the ALM Summit in Mannheim on 20th of October.

I plan to publisch the links to the video pitches from several teams here after the event to watch them online again.

These are the TOP6 finalist teams from this year´s challenge:
