Partner Information

 

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with MongoDB, which is a leading developer data platform provider. MongoDB is an open-source, highly scalable NoSQL database, which uses document-oriented data and supports a rich query language. The platform enables developers to create advanced distributed applications with exceptional performance and scalability.

You must utilize the free-to-use MongoDB Community edition that is offered to participants to create the Hackathon Solution. If you find that you need to bring your Solution up to production standards, MongoDB will supply you with MongoDB Atlas (Commercial Version) Credit to help you do so. The solution can be built using any MongoDB component, such as Mongo Shell, MongoDB Connector, MongoDB Atlas, MongoDB Stitch, MongoDB Charts, MongoDB Compass, etc.

You should use your Capgemini email id to register for the same and can download the community version from here.

Choose your Hackathon challenge

1. Unified digital platform

Exploring the multi-cloud/poly-cloud adoption services convenience through just one unified platform.

Areas to consider:

  1. Multi-cloud management, whereby workloads are updated and managed on different environments with the same security and policy settings
  2. Management of decentralized computing power using multi-cloud, hybrid, and edge capabilities
  3. FinOps to optimize cloud usage
  4. Sustainability management and reporting
  5. Cloud Agnostic Security, industry-specific regulatory and compliance standard framework

Role of Agile & DevSecOps to speed up digital transformations.

Areas to consider:

  1. Metrics telemetry - unified dashboard (Project Management, Engineering & People)
  2. DevSecOps ensures fully integrated security, considering security at an earlier stage in the system development cycle – a concept known as ‘shift left’
  3. Increase the efficiency of writing code with the help of ‘AI pair programmer’
  4. Use of Autonomous Quality Enablement Bots & AI to ensure Quality Engineering keeps pace with accelerated development

How can advanced analytics and AI support businesses to make faster, more informed and precise decisions, reducing uncertainty by delivering the right information at the right time.

Areas to consider:

  1. Harvesting data and transforming it into actionable insights that demand new data models
  2. Increased integration of BI and AI, for predictive AI capability within BI analytics solutions, enabling it to review past, present, and future
  3. Conversational, semi-structured BI approaches (such as ThoughtSpot, Looker, and AWS QuickSight), deliver analytics to users in a conversational fashion
  4. Apply AI within quality and test activities, to build truly intelligent test and validation systems

Business-driven approach to identify, vet, and automate as many business and IT processes as possible. Automate everything that is repetitive.

Areas to consider:

  1. Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
  2. Low code development
  3. Process mining
  4. Create AI-based engine for problem prediction, problem resolution & fix applications
  5. Self-healing with Robotics & AI
  6. AI based Ops & Performance Management
  7. NoOps autonomous, self-healing, and self-maintaining systems

IT-business relationship to undertake digital transformation that leads to ‘fusion’ instead of ‘alignment’.

Areas to consider:

  1. Industry-specific clouds and cross-industry solutions for healthcare, energy, supply chains, finance & more
  2. Service-oriented architecture and integration strategies that rely on standardized Industry APIs add another layer of agility at the software level, where it becomes significantly easier to leverage off-the-shelf functionality as a service
  3. Quality testing that goes beyond measuring and preventing defects in production, to measuring impact on business outcomes and customer satisfaction

How Industry 4.0 brings value and efficiency to the business to Smart factory & connected device use cases using the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud.

Areas to consider:

  1. Optimize Industry-specific processes like logistics and supply chains using connected supply chain
  2. Edge computing & cloud integration, whereby public cloud providers offer services that make enable running workloads in a multi-cloud management format, regardless of the underlying cloud platform
  3. Quality Engineering for emerging technologies

Evaluation Criteria

Team submissions will be evaluated by a panel of technology and Innovation leaders, including external experts on the following metrics:

 

SCALABILITY
Value / weight: 25%

Can the solution be implemented with current technology? How difficult will it be to create an MVP and deploy it at scale?

Can this idea be industrialized and taken to many customers? The more scalability/applicability, the better.

 

INNOVATION
Value / weight: 25%

How technically feasible is the solution?

Does it use a particularly innovative technique or many different components?

Does the technology involve a partner's collaboration and if so, which features of the partner's ready solutions does it use? Did it use new technologies or leverage our partner ecosystem, and was there learning involved?

 

MARKET RELEVANCE
Value / weight: 25%

Does the idea have a clear hypothesis and business benefits identified?


Does the solution appeal to a wide range of industries? How unique is the solution?

 

SOLUTION COMPLETENESS
Value/weight: 25%
