- The goal of the second-annual Edmunds Minsk Hackathon was to create innovative and effective data products for Edmunds – products that would drive manufacturer and dealer revenue while improving the car-buying experience for consumers. EPAM teams were challenged to leverage Edmunds’ extensive technology and Big Data infrastructure to create innovative minimum viable products that could dynamically incorporate real-time streaming data and historical data with predictive models.
Edmunds Minsk Hackathon 2015: EPAM Big Data Innovation
Edmunds.com is the leading car shopping destination for car buyers, dealers, and researchers in the United States. When it comes to making the car buying process in America easier, no one does it better than Edmunds, which is why EPAM engineers and subject matter experts were thrilled to partner with Edmunds for a second-annual hackathon in Minsk, Belarus.
The value of the Edmunds Minsk Hackathon 2015 – as with all of EPAM’s Hackathons – is the tremendous ideation generated by such an event, often resulting in many of those same ideas becoming real products in the months following the Hackathon.
