The Denodo University Challenge invites students to solve real-world data integration, combination and visualization problems using Denodo's cutting-edge data virtualization technology. Over the course of the challenge, you'll tackle a compelling problem statement and leverage Denodo Express to create innovative solutions.
The challenge is exclusively for university students.
Groups of 1 to 3 students
Challenge phasesChallenge encompasses the typical phases in a data project: Integrate, Manage, and Deliver, each presenting distinct tasks and evaluation criteria to assess participants' data integration, management, analysis, and reporting capabilities.
Participants will use Denodo Express' Design Studio to connect provided challenge datasets and additional researched datasets. Apart from creating data source and base views for each dataset, these views need to be combined with relational algebra operations like join, group by, and projections to create the final views.
Participants should consider both process efficiency and security/data governance for those views using Denodo Express' Design Studio. By prioritizing these factors, participants can enhance their operations, protect valuable data, and minimize risks.
Participants will utilize the final views generated from the previous phases to extract valuable information and solve the challenge problem. They are encouraged to demonstrate their data analysis and visualization skills through custom views, as long as to provide adequate justification.
Submission DetailsCheck the requirements and guidelines for participants to submit their work in the Denodo Community Site at the conclusion of the challenge. The specific submission requirements will be published along with the Challenge information.
Prizes and RecognitionPrizes are awarded to the three top-performing teams and to the university that presents the highest number of teams.
