Strata Data Innovation Awards 2012

We’re excited to launch the Strata Data Innovation Awards to recognize disruptive, innovative technologies in big data and data science, highlight data science as an increasing importance for companies, and showcase the highlights of the growing data community.

The categories for the awards are as follows:

  • Data Used For Social Impact
  • Data Transforming an Organization
  • Effective Visualization
  • Personal Applications of Data
  • Most Effective Opening of Data

The award for each category will be given to an organization, project, or individual who has made a significant innovation in the data field. The nomination can be for a tool for management or analytics, a concept, or even a methodology.

The nomination process is open to the entire data community and all entries will be judged by the award committee, chaired by Strata program chairs Edd Dumbill and Alistair Croll. The awards will be presented during the keynotes at Strata Conference + Hadoop World, happening Oct 23-25 in New York.

Submissions from PR agencies on behalf of clients will be discarded.

Please submit your nominations by midnight PT on September 18, 2012.
