SAP coder competition

This year our company participated in SAP coder competition for the second time.  SAP CIS proposed several tasks on behalf of the customers. Our choice was “Service for automated classification of fixed assets (OKOF codes)” by PAO Severstal, where we could apply our data science and enterprise applications development knowledge to solve an interesting real-world problem. Only 4 teams could get to the final stage and present their solutions to customer during online session. As a result of internal discussion and voting our application was scored as one of the 2 favorites, even though preference was given to other solution, customer emphasized following advantages of our application:

  • Providing results of asset search in several ways (fuzzy search by asset name, results of machine learning model, making use of historical classification data)
  • Convenient and friendly UI
  • Original approach to problem solving
