Excelling in the SUSS-Microsoft Analytics Hackathon 2018

The final round of the SUSS-Microsoft Analytics Hackathon 2018 was held at the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) on 15 September 2018. The competition drew many participants from a range of institutions and eventually 7 teams were shortlisted for the final round.  

The competition required participants to deliver an analytics solution for a company specialising in food order delivery services. The teams were tasked to improve the company’s delivery order assignment process, design an automated system to optimise the delivery order assignment and suggest a route schedule for their delivery riders.

Two teams from Temasek Polytechnic’s School of Informatics & IT were among the 7 teams that made it to the final round of the competition. Both teams are from the Diploma in Big Data Management & Governance. Team Chilli, comprising Candy Salome Lim, Ng Zhi Quan and Goh Jian Cheng emerged as 2nd Prize winners with their innovative solution that enables more efficient deliveries, while Team Hackadas, comprising Das Arpitt, Adrian Ong and Wong Jun Wen earned a consolation prize as finalists at the event.
