From the official announcement:
A video featuring an intrepid corporate reporter and her real-time hunt for her on-the-move CEO was the winner of the Sybase “How We Did It” Video Challenge.
“Finding Jono,” created by Anne Walker of St George Bank, Treasury & Valorem Systems Australia, follows Walker from Valorem Systems headquarters to the local mall and ultimately the mall parking garage in her quest to find CEO Jon Tinberg. She is able to track his movements thanks to a company system featuring such Sybase solutions as ASE, PowerBuilder, PocketBuilder and MobiLink synchronization technology.
Attendees of TechWave 2008 selected “Finding Jono” as the winner of the challenge after viewing it and other video submissions over the course of the conference week and voting via text message. Walker won the top prize of $5,000 for the submission.
Second-place winner in the contest was “Desktop Widget,” produced by Team Sybase’s Bruce Armstrong. The second-place ranking earned Armstrong a Flip Mino compact video camera.
Contest voters rated the videos based on originality, creativity and how well the video showcased the company’s innovative use of Sybase software to solve a real-world challenge.
Sybase extends its congratulations to the winners.
