Dallas, Texas has been chosen as the host city of the Official Big Data World Championships 2014.

Professional Services Champions League, together with its sponsors and global event partners, is delighted to announce that Dallas, Texas has been chosen as the host city for the official 2014 Big Data World Championships event ("TEXATA").

The 2014 Big Data World Championships will comprise:

  •     Two Online Rounds (Commencing April 2014); and
  •     Live World Championship Finals Event held in Dallas, Texas, USA (June 2014).

How It Works
Each competitor will individually answer a variety of multiple choice questions and Data-related case studies – including Practical, Theory and Data Techniques and Understanding. Specific questions related to Big Data sets will focus on exploring business approaches, decision-making and accurate predictions for driving discovery and decision-making.

Round 1 will be conducted entirely online over 3 hours and commence in April 2014. Participants compete individually. The World Championship is technology agnostic – therefore participants are free to use any technology vendors and products. Participants require familiarity with the basic data analytical techniques involved with managing the large and complex volumes of data with heterogeneity, diversity and developing meaningful analytical insights. Case studies will derive from the fields of Health, Energy, Government, Insurance, Earth Science and more. Round 2 will be structured very similar to Round 1, with greater technical, conceptual and commercial difficulty.

Live World Finals Event – Dallas, Texas
Top 16 World Finalists will be flown to the Live Finals Event in Dallas, Texas to compete for the title of Big Data World Champion and Cash Prize of US$25,000 dollars. Five world-leading judging authorities will be announced in the coming months.

Corporate Sponsorship and Partnership
Key global sponsors will be announced in the coming months. Please direct all sponsorship and media enquiries to the contact details below.
