University App Rumble Contest Overview

Submissions are now closed. Thank you for all those who submitted ideas. 

Listen to our kick-off call to learn more!

Are you an undergraduate or graduate student at a University in the U.S. with a great idea for a mobile application?  If so, then SAP wants to hear from you!  Students are asked to take a design thinking approach incorporating both SAP Mobile Platform and the breakthrough database, SAP HANA.  Ideas can fall under any SAP Industry, and can be business or consumer focused.  For more information on these topics, please refer to the Useful Links.  For the Official Contest Rules, click here.

Students can be any major, either undergraduate or graduate.  Teams are allowed up to 2 members.  Three finalist teams will have the opportunity to work with SAP developers to build out their application.  Students are asked to submit their ideas using the steps of design thinking:

  1. Empathize - Understand the problem at hand
  2. Define - Research the problem and the topic
  3. Ideate - Come up with ideas that leverage mobile technology and real time data to solve the problem
  4. Prototype - Come up with the design and functionality of the solution, using any medium (paper, PowerPoint, white boards, etc.)
  5. Test - Survey the idea among users and gather feedback. Be sure to take advantage of this platform's functionality when performing this step.  You must do this step before you complete your entry.

Students must outline these steps in a double spaced page paper that may be up to 5 pages.  This paper must include an overview of their Design Thinking process, and any major references and citations.  No cover page is necessary.  Additional mediums are also highly encouraged (video, interviews, digital story-telling, etc.).  Be creative!!  The sooner you submit your idea, the more feedback you are likely to receive. The final date to submit an idea is April 8th, but the week leading up to that is crucial for fine tuning.

Students submissions will be judged using these criteria: desirability, feasibility, viability, creativity.  The finalists will be asked to work with SAP to build out their final mobile application.  These finalists will win a trip to Orlando, Florida to compete in the final competition at SAPPHIRE NOWThe grand prize winner of this competition will have the opportunity to continue their engagement with SAP to build out their final application product.
