At the conclusion of the Hackathon, the judges’ criteria for evaluating each project hinged on its potential customer benefit. In fact, participants were informed their ideas may be shared with the broader Workday community if they demonstrated potential for use beyond the event. Rounding out judges’ criteria was the coolness factor of each project.
Each team produced innovative and compelling projects, but in the end judges could only select three winners:
First Place: Team Teal, comprised of five people from a Workday customer organization, for a new approach to employee recognition, including feedback tools that would support it.
Second Place: Sunday League, including a Workday employee, members of a Workday customer organization, and a someone from a partner organization, for its integration visualization tool.
Third Place: The Champs, comprised of multiple partners and someone from a Workday customer organization, for a tool that automatically determines the correct taxation for remote workers.
Many thanks to Workday Altitude attendees who participated in this year’s Hackathon. There are countless other ways they could have stayed up all night in Vegas. In this case, the stories didn’t need to “stay in Vegas.”
