Data challenges_

Main hackathon award – best use of data analytics

Following are criteria our judging panel will follow.

Accuracy Is the project based on precise data and well executed? The devil lies in the details.
Innovative approach and creativity Did the team surprise you with their methods, approach to solve a problem or findings? Are they exceptionally creative?
Usefulness Is the project useful in real life? Can you see the potential right away?
Understandability Is the project easily understandable? Is a person from the field able to understand the insights? How well-defined are the insights?
Reproducibility As with science experiments, reproducibility is a vital component for the results to be trusted. Is the process of analysis clear enough so that it can be trusted?

This list of qualities all the projects should have is probably not complete. Please try to look at each project with as much objectivity as possible, while judging it from a professional point of view. I know that an interactive application is hard to compare to a simple dashboard, but I believe you know that there is more to it.

Yellowfin best business solution

Presentation of analytics project outcomes in a clear and easily understood format is essential. The analysis methods and technology used are only part of what makes a successful analytics project. The final project outcomes must ultimately have business relevance. A good business-focused presentation of an analytics project, with well-defined insights that are easily understood, help decision makers be more confident in their decisions.
