“Datathon” describes a mostly digital competition with the aim of solving a data-related IT problem. The name is derived from the term “Hackathon”.
In a datathon, individuals as well as teams of computer scientists, data scientists and experts from other fields can participate in order to analyse data in a specific case and thereby gain new conclusions and insights.
A datathon encourages the development of new and promising ideas in an entertaining and challenging way. This is particularly well suited as a basis for open innovation or new business opportunities.
The data marketplace offers the possibility to create, market and conduct such competitions in an organised system in order to generate further added value from your own data.
