The ASEAN Foundation and SAP concluded the ASEAN Data Science Explorers (DSE) National Finals at the Makati campus of the Mapua University. University students from all over the Philippines, who took part in the competition, were awarded the top three awards for their insights and innovative ideas addressing social and economic issues in the ASEAN region.

This is the second consecutive year that ASEAN DSE was organized across all 10 ASEAN member states as part of the strategic partnership between the ASEAN Foundation and SAP. First introduced in 2017, the ASEAN Data Science Explorers (ADSE) is a data analytics competition that aims to enhance awareness and appreciation of the ASEAN community amongst young people through digital literacy intervention. By using the SAP Analytics Cloud, participants are encouraged to deliver data-driven insights which highlight issues in ASEAN across six United Nation Sustainable Development Goals, namely (1) good health and well-being, (2) quality education, (3) gender equality, (4) decent work and economic growth, (5) industry, innovation & infrastructure and (6) sustainable cities and communities.

Titled “Today’s Youth for Tomorrow’s World”, this competition allowed youths from ASEAN member countries to play a key role in tackling today’s social issues in the region and help create positive change for a better future.

We have witnessed great and inspiring ideas presented by all contestants that could be the important key an improved ASEAN society,” said Edler Panlilio, Managing Director of SAP Philippines, who acted as one of the judges in ADSE Philippines National Finals 2018. “We at SAP operate on the mission to help the world run better and improve people’s lives and wish to involve the youth in the same mission and use technology to contribute to the Philippines and to the ASEAN region. Leveraging the first-class insights provided by SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP enabled the students to access and analyze real-time data of the current social and economic crises in ASEAN member nations,” explained Panlilio.

SAP has operated in ASEAN for over 29 years, engaging over 18,000 youths in 100 institutes of higher learning annually with SAP’s curriculum. Through their partnership with the ASEAN Foundation, SAP has a goal to help prepare more young people for the digital economy and support ASEAN drive sustainable socio-economic growth in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. “In our first year, we impacted 800 students. In 2018, to date, we have trained more than 2,000 students across Southeast Asia on SAP Analytics Cloud and tripled our number of submissions,” added Panlilio.

Students who registered for the program earlier in the year gained access to ASEAN datasets as well as the SAP Analytics Cloud platform, which allowed them to analyze the data and derive insights. The SAP Analytics Cloud is new generation software as a service (SaaS) that redefines analytics in the cloud by providing business intelligence (BI), predictive, and planning capabilities all within one tool. Using this cloud platform, the participants could analyze and visualize data to come up with their innovative recommendations.

The assessment was based on three criteria: the relevance and credibility of data, the quality of analytical insights, and the feasibility of recommended solutions to the problems addressed by each project. Out of 11 finalists, the first place winner will proceed to the Regional Finals happening on 25 October 2018 in Singapore, where they will face the top winners from other National Finals rounds.

About ASEAN Foundation

Three decades after ASEAN was established, ASEAN leaders recognized that: there remained inadequate shared prosperity, ASEAN awareness, and contact among people of ASEAN. It was of this concern that ASEAN leaders established ASEAN Foundation during ASEAN’s 30th Anniversary Commemorative Summit in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia on 15 December 1997. ASEAN Foundation is an organization from and for the people of ASEAN. The Foundation exists because of one vision: to build a cohesive and prosperous ASEAN Community. As an ASEAN’s body, the Foundation is tasked to support ASEAN mainly in promoting awareness, identity, interaction, and development of the people of ASEAN.
