OBDD Hackathon
In the early years, Big Data was discarded as yet another fad. Today, Big data has gone from buzzword to business necessity. However, Big data analytics has always startled Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) because of the inability of SMEs to fund it. Now, there are many cloud services that enable you to create your own analytics and allow you to scale up your requirement or stop the service when your project is complete, keeping control over the cost. We believe that it is the right time for SMEs to exploit the power of Big Data Analytics. So, join OBDD Hackathon to empower SMEs with Big Data Analytics. This year’s Oslo Big Data Day will feature a 48 hours Hackathon event with the theme “Democratizing Big Data Analytics for SMEs”. Fill up the participation form here: The winning team will pitch in front of real life investors during the Oslo Big Data Day at BI Norwegian Business School and the team will be offered to start a full fletched company. Who can participate? Full stack and front-end developers UX Designers Business Analysts and Data Scientists System Architects Go-to-market strategists AI and Machine Learning experts Anyone with domain knowledge in Management, Finance and Marketing Others
