Louis Vuitton’s second Hackathon with Anaplan a huge success


PARIS, June 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — “Unlock Supply Chain,” the hackathon organized last weekend by Louis Vuitton with Anaplan, the Smart Business Platform™, and BeMyApp at Ecole 42 was a resounding success. The idea involved inviting several students to dive into the world of Louis Vuitton’s Supply Chain in a 48-hour hackathon, with the ultimate goal of developing a future supply chain model for the luxury leader using the Anaplan platform.

“The results are stunning, it is incredible to see what can be the output of several intelligent brains working together during less than three days,” declared Franck Le Moal, Louis Vuitton’s Information System Director.

“It has been tough for the jury to decide on the winner. We are amazed by the solutions brought up in such a short period of time. Some of the students had never even heard of the supply chain before the challenge,” explained Vincent Barale, Louis Vuitton’sSupply Chain and Logistics Director.

“The Hackathon experience has been a great privilege for Anaplan,” says Edouard Fourcade, General Manager France, Anaplan. “First, we were faced with the strategic issue that Louis Vuitton operates one the best supply chains in the world, if not the best. This demonstrates the potential business value that Louis Vuitton sees in Anaplan. In addition, the Hackathon format meant that students had only one weekend to complete a project based on a new technology they have never seen before. This just proves how versatile and user-friendly the Anaplan platform is, providing the ability for enterprises to deal with an ever-changing world. It is with enthusiasm and gratitude that Anaplan experts lent themselves to the game of coaching in this innovative project.”

More than 50 students and post-graduates from leading French Business and Engineering schools came to participate in the supply chain challenge (HEC, Centrale, Ponts et Chaussées, Ecole 42, Efrei, Epitech, Kedge, Etna, Essec and Arts et Metiers…). The scope of the hackathon was centered around 13 suppliers, seven workshops, 500 product references, a central warehouse, and six distribution centers.

The first prize was granted to the PLAN!T team (Coach Gabriel Eteneau’s team). It answered the following challenge: to anticipate production needs according to the daily sales level. The purpose was to simplify both the operations and planning, and to speed up the information process. A better life for all operational and executive users! The team won a trip to Los Angelesand a selection of Louis Vuitton products.

Second prize was awarded to the Make It Easy Team (Coach Soichiro Ando’s team). Their focus was to make the supply chain simpler and more efficient while taking into account the volatility of demand and the environmental impact.

Team “Supply The Future” finished in third place (Coach Xavier Rouault’s team). The goal was simple: to use new technologies like RFID to anticipate in real-time future sales in Louis Vuitton stores.

A special Anaplan prize has been awarded to the Maru’s Angels team (coach Maru Vasquez). “We recognized the relevance of the Anaplan model built by the Maru’s Angels team,” says Jérémie Brunet, EMEA Senior Consultant Manager, Anaplan. “The students were able to grasp the power of our platform in short notice and to produce an accurate supply chain solution.”
