One device was conspicuous among the ideas, software tools, and technical implementations presented at this year’s SAP TechEd in Berlin: Of the six Demo Jam finalists, three teams used smartphones with the Android operating system as their basis. Before the Demo Jam final got underway, a team of five developers was introduced. The remarkable thing about them was that they only got to know one another on the weekend and they developed a prototype within just 30 hours.

CLUEY is a prototype that enables informal information to be integrated with standard work processes, for example, in SAP CRM and SAP ERP. Personal desktop notes, which are not necessarily intended for all members of a group, can be linked with formal and official data in a system on a case-by-case basis.

The winners of the Demo Jam final were Florian Schultz from Livescribe and Tobias Queck from SAP. The two developers used the example of quality control for beer to show how handwritten and recorded notes can be transferred to the SAP system using a smartpen and SAP Easy Document Management.
The winners were chosen completely democratically by gauging the volume of the applause – as in previous years. The duo who received the loudest claps and cheers had the honor of taking the trophy home.
