Could you win the 2012 American Web Idol?
Do you have a great software solution to an enterprise problem? Are your users simply stunned when they use your latest release?
Once again software vendors will have the opportunity to participate in the J. Boye Web Idol competition to be held next in Philadelphia on Conference Day #2, Wednesday, May 9th 2012.
We are looking for innovative vendors from across the entire marketplace; semantic web, enterprise portal, search, wiki, analytics, blogging, CMS, mobile, social media or something else.
J. Boye Web Idol is loosely based on “American Idol” and is a fast-paced, entertaining set of competitive demos. If you prefer succinct, comparative demos to long-winded presentations, this is the session for you.
The 5 competing vendors will present 6-minute innovative demos showing how their solution can solve a business problem. It could be a software solution, an application for mobile or even a service delivery concept in relation to for example an implementation project. After the sessions, the audience will vote for the winner – who will take over the legendary (and grotesquely large) trophy for a year.
As always, we will have a distinguished panel of judges who will provide some pithy commentary and feedback and at the end, the audience will vote for their favourite idea and select the winner.
The rules are simple: Introduce what you have got that can help solve a business problem or improve a task or work process – and sell it to the delegates using a live demo. Demonstrate the benefits of your offering and convince the audience that your entry is the most impressive and valuable at this year’s show.
The judges will be judging the demos on:
- Relevance and importance of the business problem you are addressing
- Ease of application
Are you up for the challenge? If you wish to enter, you must submit a brief proposal in the comments box below: Let us know what the problem you are addressing is and how / with which solution you are going to solve it.
UPDATE: Deadline for submissions has passed
