CiMi.CON Evolution Award 2018

Berlin, July 5, 2018 – At the CiMi.CON Evolution 2018, held from July 2-4, gathered the top experts in the industry. Co-Hosted with the Pharma CiMi.CON, these two conferences provide a unique glimpse into the fascinating world of competitive and market intelligence. Over 300 attendees participated in this year’s event, which offers a diverse range of topics and formats.

On the evening of day one, the CI experts took part in the award ceremony. They voted for the leading competitive intelligence projects in the industry. All participating companies and projects were nominated prior to the conference by the CiMi.CON jury.

Paul Santilli (WW OEM Business Intelligence & Customer Insights, Hewlett Packard), Christina Sterenborg (Head of Market Intelligence, Telekom), Edwin Vlems (Marketing Manager, MCB), Jim Xu (Executive Director, MSD) and Dr. Leila Kossou (Market Intelligence Manager, GEA Group) formed the independent expert jury, who reviewed all applications. Based on their experience, knowledge and expertise in the corporate intelligence field selected the nominees.

The Award is divided into two categories:
1. Community Award (determined by live voting at the award dinner)
2. Jury Award

Community-Award decided by live voting
Winner of the CiMi.CON Evolution Community award 2018 was Ericsson with their project ‘Emerging Data - MI Analytics’. Jonathan Ferland and his team set up a text analytics programme that looks at over 10 years of publications from over 50 companies that are of interest to Ericsson. Using this data they are able to identify how these competitors are discussed by the different target groups. The identified focus topics and keywords are the basis of future product innovations.
The 3rd place went to Philips, who was awarded the two times in a row, and their innovative ‘CI Mobile App for Sales’.

Jury Award for best CI Integration project
AFGA Healthcare convinced the Jury with ‘Global Savory Category Growth & Mix Influencers Analysis’ project. They successfully demonstrated how to build an efficient information analysis system on a limited CI budget to optimize information search, gathering & analysis. This data is used to understand the changing competitive landscape and the ongoing pharma industry transformation.

Award Winners support German children’s cancer society
The award winners did not only receive a trophy and certificate proving their excellence but also donated 1,000 € on behalf of we.CONECT to support a charity project. This year’s German children’s cancer association is a not for profit organization, that was founded 1995 by parents with cancer diagnosed children. The society supports these children and their families with competent counsel, financial support if needed and projects such as the “Waldpiraten-Camp” to ensure a complete recovery. The children’s cancer association also sponsors patient-orientated researches with the main goal to improve healing chances, enhance secure treatment methods and find new therapeutic approaches.
