Hortonworks Data Heroes

Data Scientist Finalists for the Americas
Hortonworks Data Heroes Program

Winner to be announced at DataWorks Summit
San Jose, USA | June 13-15

Congratulations! You have been chosen as one of three Data Scientist finalists for the Americas in the Hortonworks Data Heroes customer awards program.

A panel of experts will choose the winner, to be announced at the 2017 DataWorks Summit in San Jose. This web form is for you to submit your heroic information that those judges will review to choose a winner.

In order to accept your invitation to DataWorks Summit, you must complete and submit this form before end of the day on Friday, May 19. All information you provide in connection with this submission form will be shared with the Data Hero judges and may also be publicly disclosed for marketing or promotional purposes. Contest rules apply.

To set yourself apart from the other two San Jose finalists in your Data Scientist category, we recommend these best practices for the information you provide:

  • Be as descriptive as possible. Our panel of experts will choose winners based on this written information. Make sure that you detail the areas that set you apart.

  • Focus on innovation. How are you using Hortonworks Data Platform and/or Hortonworks DataFlow to ask new questions, create new algorithms and/or design new applications that just weren’t feasible with your prior data architecture? How did you deliver new actionable intelligence to your business, organization, partners and/or customers?

  • Describe the transformative impact of your data science. What new insights are you delivering with Hortonworks solutions? How have those insights transformed your department, your company/organization, and your industry?

  • Share results. We love data. Share whatever statistics you can on the impact to your business or organization (such as cost savings, improved results, increased customer satisfaction, etc).
