Workato Announces Winners of First Annual Employee-Led Automation Hackathon


Workato, the leading enterprise automation platform, announced the winning teams and solutions of the first ever, company-wide Automation Hackathon. Created to reimagine the possibilities with automation, Workato's Automation Hackathon was open to all employees, regardless of department, technical background, or tenure at the company. The panel of judges reviewed 44 entries from across the company, with employees from India, Singapore, and the US crowned as winners. Led by Workato's Chief Information Office, Carter Busse, and Stephanie Dwight, Senior Director, Automations and Applications, the competition emphasized the low-code/no-code capabilities of all Workato employees.

With a month to ideate, develop, and execute a hack on the Workato platform, employees were able to work across departments and with colleagues they wouldn't normally interact with on a regular basis. This Hackathon encouraged all Workato employees to tap into the creative side of automation using the company's own automation tools. Workato aimed to empower employees to realize their full potential and showcase how automation is not about replacing humans, but about letting everyone focus more on valuable and meaningful work.

"Empowering every employee, no matter their technical background, to innovate and solve real-life problems through automation is a key part of our culture at Workato. Anyone can have great automation ideas, and provided the right tooling and the right guardrails, they should be empowered to build their creativity," said Carter Busse, CIO at Workato. "I am beyond proud of the 44 teams (30% of the company) that participated in our first company-wide Automation Hackathon. It is truly evident that automation is a creative medium and I cannot wait to see what's to come."

All entries were evaluated on the business value, marketability, maximization of resources, creativity, unexpected use of technology and features, and completeness. The following winners were selected by a panel of internal judges:

"To bring the idea of a global hackathon to the table and be able to execute it with such great results speaks to the type of culture and workforce Workato has been building from the start. I am beyond proud of all of those who participated across the company," said Stephanie Dwight, Senior Director, Automations and Applications. "To have over a third of the company come together with people from all over the world and build solutions using automation is truly extraordinary."

Workato's Automation Hackathon also included a month-long content series highlighting points of view on why automation is the future, discussions around the great automation debate, and social media chats to help continue the conversation.
