sovanta highlights in 2018
An exciting year lies behind us! Here, we look back on 2018.

Dec 28, 2018

January – Roadmap for 2018

We started the year at full speed and set our goals for 2018: customer events, sponsorships, internal activities and much more. Our goal: to increase awareness of sovanta and win exciting new customers.

February – A new sovanta office in the North and winter sports in the Alps

Office opening in Hamburg! All tables and chairs, cups and teaspoons are in place and our second sovanta office in Germany can finally be opened and filled with life. Take a look at our new location in the Hafencity here: Office Hamburg. Wintertime also means: sovanta goes skiing! Traditionally, our winter sports enthusiasts travel together to the Alps to conquer the slopes.

March – Voice technology and data science with LIDL and Endress+Hauser

The first Business Innovation Day of the year in Heidelberg was devoted to voice technologies and data science. In addition to interesting presentations and hands on technology, two customer presentations with LIDL and Endress+Hauser were also on the agenda.

April – Spring awakening in Heidelberg

Spring is finally here! And so it was time for our sovanta Spring Party, of course including the fiercely contested sovanta Spring Cup in table football. In addition, we were again a gold sponsor at the international music festival "Heidelberger Frühling".

May – sovanta on stage at the German Foundation Day and E+H Infodays

May had two event highlights in store for us: At the German Foundation Day in Nuremberg, we were able to present our sovanta Foundation App - the digital companion for everyday foundation life. Almost in parallel, our data science and design experts gave lectures on the topics of big data, machine learning and data thinking at the E+H Infodays.

June – Young designers, Dockers, and future technologies

sovanta supports young designers! This year we supported the UNCOVER Design Festival in Mannheim and sponsored the sovanta UX Design Award, which is awarded with 2,000 Euro. Of course, our chief designer Sven Marten didn't miss the opportunity to personally present the prize to the lucky winners of GoCaspr. In June, all development specialists could enjoy the Dockers Meetup at sovanta! Around 40 enthusiastic developers exchanged ideas about the open source system Kubernetes at the event. In addition, our Business Innovation Day in the Heidelberg office went into the second round: everything revolved around innovative apps for sales and HR as well as future technologies and chat- and voicebots.

July – German top innovators and a conference by employees for employees

Second place for sovanta! We came second in the TOP100 competition and are thus among the most innovative companies in the German SME sector. The award directly took a special place in our office. That of course was a reason to celebrate! At the traditional sovanta summer party we celebrated with our colleagues at summer temperatures and with delicious barbecue food. Another highlight of July: Our internal soanta DevCon by employees for employees. For one day, everything revolved around SHAPE®, our model kit for developing innovative business apps. The program included 20 sessions, which, in addition to development topics, also offered space for design content and sales pitches. Here we captured a few impressions: Aftermovie DevCon 2018

August – Finalizing the design tool

September – With new energy into autumn

“Healthy body, healthy mind!” – this was the motto of the first sovanta Health Day. During the varied program we could let off steam and learn a lot about our bodies. We used this newly gained energy at the Volunteer Day of the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region. Again, we participated with many hardworking colleagues and refurbished the garden of the F+U Bildungscampus in Heidelberg. We think the result is something to be proud of!

October – Two times stage time for sovanta at the DSAG-Jahreskongress

One of our major event highlights this year was the DSAG-Jahreskongress. sovanta was on stage twice! First of all, our data science experts, together with Endress+Hauser, gave insights into an exciting business case about machine learning and cross-selling. Afterwards, we continued with our expert lecture on the topic of Business Bots.

November – 100 students visiting us in Heidelberg

Also in November, our sales team was on the road in Germany and Switzerland at various congresses - including the Strategy Days Supply Chain Management and IoT in Bensberg as well as the Strategy Days IT DACH in Zurich. We also successfully continued our recruiting event series: for the sixth time, we invited students from regional universities to the sovanta University Day. The approximately 100 participants were able to take an exclusive look behind the scenes at sovanta.

December – Time to celebrate!

An exciting and successful year is coming to an end - and where better to celebrate than at our traditional Xmas party at the PMA?!
