“Sentifi Intelligence convinced the jury of the Finance-IT Innovation Award 2019 because it delivers an AI-based, logically thought-through approach to analyzing the views of the market based on various data sources. Sentifi addresses the AI black box with the help of Influencer Scores and decision-relevant events which makes decision taking logical”, says Christian Dietzmann, Research Associate at the Business Engineering Institute St.Gallen and Jury Member. The jury, which examined more than 50 entries for the 2 categories, consisted of representatives from the Universities of St.Gallen and Leipzig and industry practitioners. The three best applications in both categories, “ecosystems” and “innovative technology”, were presented to the Business Engineering Forum audience.

In addition to the Finance IT-Innovation Award, Sentifi Intelligence also won the audience prize, which was awarded to the solution the audience perceived to be the most innovative.
