The competition is aimed at University Alliances program member students and challenges them to create dashboards using the SAP Crystal Dashboard Design Software. We are teaming with Junior Achievement Philadelphia branch, a non-profit empowering young people to own their economic success, in an effort to help them analyze KPIs.

This competition has been very successful in other parts of the world, now we are pleased to bring it to North America UA universities for the first time. In 2010 and 2011 students across APJ engaged in the competition and enjoyed the benefits of attending TechEd Bangalore and other events. The NA Competition allows student teams to register until March 1st, 2012 and submit their dashboards through March 22nd, 2012. The three finalists teams will be invited to SAPPHIRE NOW Orlando 2012 and participate in the SAP University Excellence Program.
