Great organizations manage their workflows efficiently. When the core operations of an organization are clearly defined and run with care, the organization runs smoothly and can focus on bigger problems than storing data and fetching reports.

The visibility of the work that comes with workflow management tends to lead to awareness of how to improve these workflows. Business  process improvement is a natural part of workflow management.

The real problem today is a lack of efficient systems to support within and across team collaborations. Sigma-Thon 2.0 is back with another series of Hackathon to solution for everyday business problems.

We invite all developers globally to register and engineer data models & architectures that identify a workflow pattern, recommend actions, track issues, analyze trends, and derive actionable insights using BI reports.


Guidelines for building your prototype solution:

  • The following fields are mandatory at the time of submission:
    1. Detailed description of the solution
    2. Updates prototype submission template - Click here to download the template
    3. Source code
Workflow Analysis

Workflow collaboration within and across teams is crucial in today’s world. Every team works on different projects and has a unique way of delivery. Every project is inter-related, thereby connecting multiple teams to a single product roadmap. There are multiple workflow tools like Jira, Trello, Zoho, etc. Multiple reports are available at individual team levels that can be analysed for project-level analytics. In this hackathon, innovate on:

  1. A scalable data architecture to store huge volumes of data 
  2. Build a Business intelligence reporting (BI-report) that derives actionable insights from workflow reports at project level, team level and subsequent hierarchical levels. Reports can be about work utilization, delivery efficiency, etc.
  3. Analyse user behaviour data [time spent on each task, type of task done, spillovers, etc.] to:
    1. Recommend users for upcoming tasks, given the nature and priority of tasks
    2. Predict the estimated time of completion for each type of task for each user in real-time

Bonus points: 

  1. You have considered live streaming of data for the above tasks
  2. Ensured data reconciliation and validation checks

You can use anonymised data for this use case. Data needs to be shared along with source code and will be subject to guaranteed confidentiality by HackerEarth.

Template Generator

Identification and templatization of workflows is a resource-intensive task. You need to track and analyse issues, discussion threads, and activity performed per issue to identify a pattern. The pattern needs to be backed with insights on frequency, duration, priority, etc. to be finalised into a workflow. Design a model that 

  1. Identifies a workflow pattern by analysing the frequency of an issue and corresponding activity
  2. Recommends actions to issue owner based on latest activity and discussion threads

Bonus points:

  1. Self-learning recommendation system

You can use anonymised data for this use case. Data needs to be shared along with source code and will be subject to guaranteed confidentiality by HackerEarth.
