Focus on innovation and start-ups
The first edition of the Digital Challenge chose Ermeo as its winner to receive free participation in ROOMn. Ermeo digitises technical documents. Its goal is to simplify as much as possible the work to be done by technicians in the field when they perform maintenance.
"The Jury chose to recognise a start-up working in the industrial sector, that despite its youth has already conducted many POCs with major CAC40 companies, and whose product offers a true innovation for technicians in the field… We think Ermeo is an example of the industry of the future, connected and facilitated by mobile technologies." declares Jean-Paul Mazoyer, Digital Challenge jury president.
"Ermeo presented a clear, mobile and digital solution in a crowded sector. Starting with its first clients that it has already won over, it will bring a new dynamic to its ecosystem and could see explosive growth," predicts André Saint-Mleux, President, Arthapol SAS, representative of the Monegasque government, prize partner.
This is a great opportunity for us to meet the professionals and experts at the heart of the digital transformation. The business aspect and the One-to-One meetings of this renowned event that’s so important in its ecosystem will give our activity a real boost,” states Victor Payan, Co-founder and Operations Director at Ermeo
Enter the DataROOMn
New for 2017, ROOMn and Kynapse by Open will be holding a Datackathon.
In the heart of the ROOMn forum, students from France’s most prestigious engineering schools will be working in teams of four for 36 hours to resolve two problems based on industrial data from EDF and SUEZ.
Their goal is to propose the best algorithm and THE dataviz that will bring victory to the best team!
“We can no longer separate the computer “engine” from uses in the digital transformation, and that’s why we’re at ROOMn. This conviction pushed us to lead this Datackathon in order to combine new technologies, new agile methods and a new mindset in an original way: these are the ingredients of a successful digital transformation!” explains Frédéric Sebag, Datackathon jury president, and co-President at Open.
