QlikWorld Datathons: In partnership with the United Nations, Qlik and Qlik.org are hosting two datathons this year, both with the challenge to develop data and analytic solutions to promote solutions toward achieving the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development goals. The Academic Program Datathon participants began their efforts in February, with the top 3 solutions selected for viewing and voting by QlikWorld participants as the final judge during the event. Customers and Partners will be able to access a second challenge as QlikWorld starts, with three days to complete their solutions to submit for final judging and awards. All submissions will leverage an existing data set within a Qlik application, and participants will blend additional socioeconomic and demographic data to present solutions tied to these pressing international goals. Winners will be celebrated widely and will earn a chance to present their solution to our partners at the United Nations in June 2021.
