This is not a competition, but rather a platform to allow developers to submit brief story around their business and solution that address specific areas of the Oil & Gas and Banking industry. The selection committee will preview the submission, review the demo, interview applicants and shortlist the solutions that meet the needs of the Oil & Gas and Banking industries. The successful applicants will be admitted into an incubation centre (free office space with high internet speed etc), mentored by selected CIOs of these industries. The CIOs, Accenture, Digital Jewel will work with them to define the full requirements and ensure that the solution is completely built according to international standards and quality. The programme will provide free training, free software testing, business advisory services to the developers. More importantly at the end of the development, the Banks and the Oil and Gas will uptake the solution and pay the developers. That means business for the developers - cost of development, annual maintenance and support cost of the software. This programme sole aim is to create a captive market for the local software developers.
