The Hackathon, as this video shows, can help map data and create a viable solution in just 24 hours. In the process there is a huge amount of learning on how to digitize, map and link data together and generate useful visualisations in a user-interface.
"The agility of a Hackathon can leapfrog months of agonising over whether you have the right data, the right technology and the right idea," she says.
It's also very cost-effective. Big businesses tend to go on a long and protracted journey, using large amounts of manpower and resource, that too often lead to a dead end. A Hackathon can get you the answer quickly, or at least inform what the art of the possible is to facilitate further business casing – and a crude but functioning product, with far less resource.
