Could you win the 2014 European Web Idol?
Do you have a great software solution to an enterprise problem? Are your users simply stunned when they use your latest release? Have you helped customers crack a digital challenge?
Once again, vendors and agencies will have the opportunity to participate in the J. Boye Web Idol competition to be held next on Conference Day #2, Wednesday 5th November.
As always, we are looking for innovative vendors from across the entire marketplace; semantic web, enterprise portal, search, website governance, wiki, analytics, blogging, CMS, mobile, social media – you name it!
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 presentations to long-winded demonstrations, this is the session for you.
A new challenge for vendors
We have changed the format somewhat. 6 vendors met the deadline and submitted a brief proposal in the comments box below:
We will now summarise the entries and have a public vote here on the site, and the 4 most popular proposals will enter the live contest at the conference.
The 4 competing vendors will present 7-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 trophy for a year.
We will have a distinguished panel of judges who will ask questions throughout, offer constructive feedback and help you interpret the rapid-paced product demonstration. In 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 participants 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. For an example of how it can done, enjoy the winning pitch from Siteimprove at the J. Boye Aarhus 2013 conference.
The judges will be judging the presentations on:
- Relevance and importance of the business problem you are addressing
- Ease of application
