Overview

Are you the test series or the ODI kind? Do 20/20’s excite you? Oh wait, you are here because the world of technology excites you more. So let’s make things a little different here. Time to roll up your sleeves to play a One Day Hackathon (ODH) with Unisys. Presenting Unisys Hackathon 20/20!

But before that, a little about us…

We are Unisys. We have an immense history of 144 years and today are better known as a global information technology company that specializes in providing industry-focused solutions integrated with leading-edge security to clients in the government, financial services and commercial markets.

In 2009, we conceptualized Cloud 20/20®, the flagship event of Unisys, which has grown to be one of India’s biggest online technical project contests today. We began with the idea of identifying vibrant and exceptional technology innovators, by offering a platform to young talent from several educational institutions. If our journey excites you, you can also check out our Year 8 highlights.

Today, Cloud 20/20 Year 9 is a compendium of several initiatives that brings together professionals and budding talent on the same platform, and where young minds are recognized for their unique ideas around the latest disruptive technologies.

Unisys Hackathon 20/20 is one of our very first country-wide hacking competitions under the cloud 20/20 umbrella. We are here looking for master hackers who not only wrack their brains out of pure love and passion for technological innovation, but also believe their ideas can influence the way the world thinks. By being part of our very first Hackathon, your name will be etched in the history of Unisys, in the many years to come!

So here are our focus areas for ideas. If you have your creative juices overflowing already after hearing these topics, wait no more. Your challengers await you!
