Re: Data Analytics Challenge Rules

Hi nirmala,

 

1) Yes, you can send your submissions as a group, but only one Super Prize Pack will be given to the winning submission. (You're welcome to split it within your group, though!)

 

2) Yes, you are more than welcome to enter even if you can't make the Data Insights Summit in person.

Re: Data Analytics Challenge Rules

I almost cancelled my registration to the summit after reading this.

 

1. In the past, we had project that were really creative works...not work for someone else who can't or won't pay. I feel this is wrong.

2. Who created this challenge at Microsoft?

Are we allowed to add external data sets to the given data sets? For example: adding viewership data to the Simpsons.

If we are doing Advanced Analtytics and wish to include R, that means that for people to be able to run the Power BI Report we create will have to have R installed to be able to run it.  Will we be penalized because to evaluate the report R is required?

Re: Data Analytics Challenge Rules

Just a minor point of clarification - the rules require submission of the best "report". Is a dashboard allowed in leiu of a report?

Re: Data Analytics Challenge Rules

Hi Scott, you have to send in a PBIX file as part of your submission, so it will have to contain a report and not a dashboard. 

 

Hope that helps!

Re: Data Analytics Challenge Rules

Submitting a report that uses R risuals is fine.
