PUM – Zenterio in collaboration with LiU
Our annual PUM event was held on the 13th of December!
Zenterio has, in collaboration with Linköping University coordinated the PUM course which was finished off with an event. The course targets students of Computer Science and Industrial Engineering in their final year of studies. The topic to work on changes each year and for 2018 the topic that was chosen for the students was Zenterio Cloud, which mainly focuses on content aggregation, metadata enhancement. The course divided the students into 5 virtual companies where students organize the organizational roles themselves to be able to develop their product.
This year, we invited the students to our Linköping office to pitch and present their projects at several different occasions. This is for the students to receive guidance in how they should proceed. Final presentation was on the 13th of December at Zenterio in Linköping where the students did a demo of their final product to Zenterio employees. At this final presentation each Zenterio employee in Linköping had the opportunity to vote for the company with the best product idea.
