You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
We know you’re taking shots. Lots of them. We know you’re winning and helping the world win. We see your great work. Now let everyone else see it too.
Are you innovating and are your customers innovating with you?
We want to know. Every year, The HANA Innovation Award gives real companies the opportunity to tell the story of how they help the world run better with SAP. This year, there will be two tracks: customers and startup/partners. The scope of the awards has been expanded and participants from any eligible organization leveraging any SAP Platform and Technology can enter for a chance to win.
We want to hear your #InnovationStory. Here’s how to get your story heard.
Select your track: customer or startup/SAP partner and then choose a focus area from the available categories below.
Categories are the same in each track. Entrants may submit one customer track entry and one partner track entry for a maximum of two total entries to the program. Each track entry may be in different categories.
In addition, special awards will be granted to honour at least one of the HANA Innovation Award Digital Trailblazer category entrants. The Industry Disrupter Award will recognize entrants that epitomize how digital transformation is radically disrupting how an organization creates value, interacts with customers and business partners, and, changes the competitive landscape.
The categories and tracks are defined as follows:

Prepare your pitch deck and submit your entry form. You must complete all fields in the form to qualify and your entry must be in English. Additionally, you must affirmatively declare the track and category for which the entry is being submitted. If an entry is incomplete or does not comply with the specifications and rules, it will be disqualified.
Eligible entries will be judged in one round of judging against the other entries in their respective track and category. Judging period will be from March 29th to April 11th, 2017. Each entry will be reviewed and scored by judges assigned to the entry’s track and category. The entry with the highest total score in each category, in each track will be named as the 1st place winner for that track and category. The entry with the second highest total score in each category, in each track will be named as the 2nd place winner for that track and category. There will be a total of twelve winners.
