Axway Supports Les Echos’ First Hackathon as Technology Partner
Axway , a market leader in digital business enablement, is pleased to be the technology partner of Les Echos, the leading business and financial daily media in France, in support of its premier Hackathon event, “Hackapress des Echos ” in Paris, France. In less than 48 hours, 50 developers and designers in eight teams will compete to deliver the most innovative code that will better enable Les Echos’ use of data to enrich editorial work. With a successful track record enabling hackathons and other digital transformation initiatives, Axway will provide the digital platform for the event.
Today’s digital economy forces organizations to reinvent traditional business with innovative services. Many of them take advantage of hackathons to find new creative ways to provide better customer experiences and to build a digital culture between teams.
With the objective to reenergize the way Les Echos journalists work with their content in today’s digital age, “Hackapress des Echos” will help to forge connections between student developers, designers, and startups. Axway commits to innovation by supporting partners’ hackathon initiatives with API Management , providing technological means for hackathoners to utilize data intelligently to engage with their digital ecosystem, harvest information from data sources, and develop new methods for their projects.
“We are looking forward to seeing what creative and original projects the teams are able to develop, and this is exciting,” said Jeanine Banks, executive vice president, global products and solutions. “We believe that the future of digital business relies not only on APIs and other digital transformation technologies, but also the young minds of those who innovate.”
To stimulate and assist participants in preparing their projects, representatives from Les Echos (including journalists) will be present as mentors, observers, or participants. Teams will then present their projects at the conclusion of the event. The jury will be composed of Francis Morel, Chairman of Groupe Les Echos; Henri Gibier, Director of Editorials Developments Groupe Les Echos; Digital Village (start-ups and individuals freelancers specialize in digital); and Raise investment company.
The prize for winners, sponsored by Axway, will be presented by Francis Morel, and Bruno Patino (Director of the Journalism School of Sciences Po).
