The Melbourne Business School’s ‘Business Analytics Datathon’ with $25,000 prize money is aimed at showcasing how advanced analytics can ‘transform decision making’ using SAS' analytics software and Zetaris' Cloud Data Fabric. The final data sets and question will be revealed to competitors on the kick off weekend.
Who is it for?
The Datathon is aimed at both corporate and student teams with not only advanced analytics and data science capabilities, but the ability to generate and communicate insight to ‘transform decision making’. The total prize money is $25,000, including a student team prize of $5,000.
Why do it?
The mission of Melbourne Business School’s (MBS) Centre for Business Analytics is to ‘Transform decision making through business analytics’. The final pitches of the Datathon are being held as the finale of MBS’s ‘Melbourne Business Analytics Conference’ in front of ~900 Australian senior executives where Australia’s top analytics talent will showcase what is possible through advanced analytics and actually solve a real business problem that could impact on the lives of all Australians.
