UPDATE: Extended until the 14th of Feb
BraveNewCoin.com would like to offer 1 Million Reddcoins for the best Case-Study submitted for the use of Reddcoin in a business environment.
Here is the Criteria:
Create a useful reference document which highlights how and why Reddcoin can be used in a commercial setting.
What the Business-Case should cover:
Identify the technology/problem combination
Actively seek the
problems ReddCoin can solve,
combining market research with
Identify the ‘Customer’ or 'Business Type’
Find out who has a clear
need for the technology, how much it
will mean to them, how much it would cost to
develop/integrate/rollout and the monetary,
intellectual or social benefit this technology
will bring to them.
Understand the chosen customers’ needs.
Move the emphasis away from
marketing and find out who is really in
the buying centre, as it may not always
be the engineering or R&D department.
It is important to write the Business Case
with the decision makers in mind.
Research and feedback.
It will be critical to gain actual feedback
from a relevant business type to
ensure the business-case is palatable to
real businesses needs. This market
feedback component should aid point
2 & 3 above in gaining actual data
around costs and savings.
Conclusion or 'Presenting the Business Case’
By now, the problem has been
explored in details, including the
details of the market size the target business
type operates in, the cost and consideration
to implement, and the benefits of using Reddcoin.
Therefore this section needs to summarize
the above 4 steps in the form of recommendations
for deployment, with all considerations from 1-4 in mind.
Target Industry/Business Type
The document should aim to outline a problem and present a comprehensive case for how how Reddcoin can offer a solution. There may be several use-cases, we do NOT want to see more than 1 Use-Case per Business-Case unless there is obvious synergy and the solution solves more than 1 problem for the target Business Type.
How not to present your report: http://www.itpro.co.uk/mobile/21581/google-glass-10-use-cases-for-wearable-technology.
We will keep the format open to your interpretation of the term ‘professional business case’: but we do not want to see a blog style dump of words on a page.
Deadline: 1st Feb 2015
Two weeks should be more than enough to put together a 4-8 page business case.
Please feel free to use any charts, references, attached supplementing documents etc.
The Prize will be issues on the 3rd of Feb.
Please create a PDF and email to [email protected]
In the event that we receive a few HIGH QUALITY submission, we will reserve a further 2 Million Reddcoins, for this competition. This is not a 2nd or 3rd place prize.
This is for the purpose of ensuring submitters motivation - It’s a bit of work - hence the prize size.
So in the event that we receive say 5 high-quality submissions and they offer different use-cases to each other, the best 3, will receive 1 million each.
In the event we receive 10 submissions not to the quality we are after, the 1 best of these will still receive 1 million.
This will be judged by Fran Strajnar, CEO and Founder of Techemy Ltd (which operates Bravenewcoin.com & bitcoin.info). He is experienced at creating Business-Cases for Technology use and came up with this competition for us to present to you.
If you have any questions, please place them here and we will endeavor to reply in a timely manner.
Thank you for your interest.
