GovTech: Making a Difference in the Public Sector

In partnership with BUILD Lab at the IT University of Copenhagen, PUBLIC Denmark invites you to join this talk on making a difference with GovTech.

The GovTech Program is a challenge-based initiative, which seeks to initiate, support and bolster collaboration between the public sector and technology companies with innovative solutions.

The program invites Danish and international tech companies to bring their most innovative and value-adding solutions to the public sector. The companies with the most promising ideas will be invited to join a 5-week PoC phase that includes a bespoke market dialogue with government officials and domain experts. In the final phase, the program presents a number of recommendations on how the given challenge could be solved. Companies participating in the program receive economic compensation for their efforts.

The 2nd round of the GovTech-Program features 6 real-world, public sector challenges that are currently open for applications. Join the talk to learn more about each challenge and how GovTech has an impact on society. Free coffee and cake will be provided by the university.

If you think your startup can solve one of the GovTech-Program challenges, submit your application by November 18th or show your interest here: https://bit.ly/2kNBs1S

Event Recap: Microsoft Azure Workshop with Avanade

On April 23, 2019, we held a Microsoft Azure workshop with Avanade about cloud technologies and how enterprises use them to improve their business.

This workshop is an introduction to the fundamental cloud technologies and how they are used by companies in the market today. The workshop will include a practical element where you will learn how to easily deploy and manage your own resources in the cloud. A cloud infrastructure can be used for various needs, including CRM systems, AI or IoT solutions, and Avanade will provide Microsoft Passes with credits to run several cloud resources free of charge. The workshop will be led by Jacob Foss and Michael Jonsson from Avanade. Michael is a Cloud Architect and Microsoft Azure expert, with extensive experience in enterprise-scaled cloud solutions. There will of course be pizza, snacks and drinks to keep the energy running.

Avanade is a consultancy company and joint venture of Accenture and Microsoft. In Denmark we are 60 people and globally we are around 30.000. Avanade works with clients, helping them utilize their Microsoft 365 license and transition to Azure Cloud.

If anyone would like to get in touch with Avanade, or if you’d like us to host a similar workshop, feel free to reach out to build@itu.dk!

A Local Non-profit Combatting Food Waste Needs your Help

Co-Founders Michael Jeppsen and Kristian Bonde Jensen started this passion-project last year and are looking for purpose-driven students to test out their web-based MVP.

    Stop Madspild!

Today, students, start-ups, and non-profits are all looking for opportunities to lend their skills to a purpose that drives them.

DelDinMad is no different, a non-profit dedicated to lowering the instances of food waste in Denmark.

It started last year when the start-up’s co-founders realized that by some estimations over 30% of food waste in Denmark occurs in the household.

The concept allows users to share pictures of the food that they won’t be able to eat before it goes bad, and set up rendez-vous with other users who can use the food before it spoils.

Michael and Kristian’s solution is people-based, “we bypass the market,” explains Kristian. “and of course it costs nothing for new users to sign-up.”

Join the Movement as a Beta Tester

The team has just rolled out a web-based MVP that they are hoping to get feedback on as they work towards further app development.

Does the concept intrigue you? Do you want to learn more and try this innovative approach to combatting food waste?

Then sign-up and help the start-up gain vital knowledge that could help them take this passion-project to the next level.

UX Designers Wanted!

Are you studying UX or have a UX background and want to use your knowledge and skills to make a positive impact on the environment then join this passion project!

Robotics Process Automation within Danske Bank — A presentation for Process Innovation Masters Students

This week, Digital Innovation and Management students enrolled in Process Innovation were given the opportunity to learn more about Process Automation, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence through participating in a workshop facilitated by Danske Bank. This post will briefly explain a few concepts surrounding Process Automation, share students’ thoughts on the experience, and offer suggestions for those interested in how they can learn more about process automation as well as collaboration opportunities for students, researchers, and industry.

Danske Bank – An Industry Partner

Danske Bank is Process Innovation’s Industry Partner throughout the entirety of the semester and as such has worked closely with its professor, Raffaele Ciriello, to integrate a number of workshops and projects into coursework. Raffaele finds the partnership to beneficial to his students, “they can better relate to the concepts they learn in class and understand how their acquired knowledge can be applied in practice.”

To learn more about our Industry Partnership services for companies and outside organizations, feel free to contact us, here at BuILD.

Robotic Process Automation

Last month, Process Innovation students were introduced to the Process Mining Tool Minit, through a workshop facilitated by Nordic Consultancy, Bizcon. This week, gears are shifting to the role of Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS), Robotic Process Automation and Nordic banking industry giant, Danske Bank.

Process Automation and Process improvement is something that Process Innovation students have been working on all semester for Danske Bank concerning their Danske Gave Plus product, but workshop took a more holistic approach to the adoption of automation technologies as a way for the bank to optimizing all aspects of the customer journey.

Natascha Wang is a third semester Digital Innovation & Management Master student enrolled in the course. “The robotic process automation presentation was really useful and I learned a lot, it offered a glimpse into how the bank currently uses robotic process automation,” Natascha said of the experience.

One way they are exploring to achieve these goals is marrying Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS) with Automation and software robotics. So long as processes are rule based manual tasks, a software robot can conduct these faster and more efficiently, freeing up employees to focus on interacting meaningfully with customers.

What to learn more?

As always, we hope this post has been useful and informative and we encourage you to contact us here at BuILD if you have any questions or would like to hear more about our services.

FOR STUDENTS

If you are a student and are interested in conducting researching related to process mining whether it be for a thesis, an industrial PhD, or something else altogether, then we at BuILD encourage you to reach out to us directly.

FOR ORGANIZATIONS

If you are an organization with a wicked process-related problem and are looking to work with ITU students, commission research with our faculty, or fund an industrial PhD, we encourage you to reach out to us here at the BuILD lab; we offer services that can help facilitate this process and guide you to the correct resources from start to finish.
