New Year’s Competition

in panagenda news

They say tin or aluminium is the traditional gift for a 10th anniversary. Well panagenda is a software company so we’ll have to modernize that thought somewhat. How about a Microsoft Surface Book 256GB/Intel Core i7? We’re turning 10 next year and we’ve decided to celebrate this milestone with our community.

Leading up to the new year, our New Year’s Competition consisting of 3 tasks is the first of multiple birthday surprises throughout 2017. A new task follows every Wednesday at 3pm CET and will be released on this blog. To notify you of the release follow our social media platforms where updates will be posted on a regular basis:

 The ultimate Laptop: The Surface Book i7

Having completed and submitted all tasks by the 27th December 3pm CET, you will go in the draw to win a brand new Surface Book i7. The final prize draw will be held on the 28th December, in time for you to take delivery in the new year and celebrate our birthday with us.

Task 1

The first task is to find six stars in our solutions section. For example on the page “Analytics” or “Migration and Transformation”. These stars hide different words and when combined will make a phrase that you need to send to to be part of the draw.

Task 2

As experts for analyzing and optimizing business collaboration landscapes we experienced, that it’s often the little things that make the big difference and hence your working day way easier.
For our second task, post the little things that optimize your day as a picture or statement underneath this video on our Facebook page.

Task 3

Our iDNA Foundation Report gives companies exciting insights to Big Data. Probably the most popular visualisation is our Bubble Chart. The question for Task 3: What is the color of the applications category in the iDNA Bubblechart, which you can find HERE? Please send the answer to

Prize draw

There were three tasks that needed to be completed by 27.12.2016. From the participants that completed all three tasks we will be drawing a lucky winner on Facebook Live today (28.12.2016) at 3pm CET.

As we are using a random number generator live online (, we have assigned a number to each participant. You can find your allocated number below. As participation name, we have used either your Facebook or your blog entry name to publicize all participants.

Of course we will also contact the lucky winner per email. Good luck!
