Innovathon 2018

Innovation in action – at SKIDATA Creative thinkers and innovative minds met at the SKIDATA Innovathon 2018 from the 10 to 12 of December to jointly develop new ideas and products.

For the fourth time in a row the event took place at SIKDATA and broke all records with more than 60 participants from all over the world. The venue and Thinking Factory was again the Austria Trend Hotel Salzburg West. Software and hardware developers, architects, UI designers, project and product managers and many more met to develop prototypes for new products, services or features. Innovations in software, hardware and productivity were in demand.

The SKIDATA Innovathon offers tinkerers the chance to turn their ideas into reality in a unique way. Even those who didn't come with their own idea could still get involved.

On the first day, before the official start, there was a chance to meet different teams and join one when there was a connection over shared research or development. Not only did the participants have the opportunity to work on new ideas, but also to meet new people who shared a passion for innovation.

At the end of the event, the jury had the difficult task of appointing the winners of the fourth SKIDATA Innovathon. The criteria were innovation, business potential, usability, and technical progress.

For the first time, the overall winning team with the highest points was also awarded two second places for the most innovative idea and the exceptional business value for SKIDATA. After the award ceremony, the winners were well acknowledged.

All those who have a feeling for digital trends and want to work in a creative environment will find their chance here:
