"Small ideas are here to stay, and generally impact and mean so much more to Partners, than the next big strategic change. Therefore, using a system that allows any Partner, working anywhere in our business, whether driving a van, restocking shelves or managing the marketing POS, to submit an idea is very important. The Wazoku idea management platform gives exactly that."
Stuart Eames Retail Innovation Lead, Waitrose

Featured Challenge

Revolutionizing Data Ingestion and Curation for Intelligence Analysis


The ability to ingest properly curated data into analysis tools is of fundamental importance to exploit information from massive amounts of data sources. When analyzed properly, the data can provide insights into relationships between entities, patterns of life, and even weak signals to suggest threat activities for intelligence analysis. The more complex the data sources are, the more difficult and time-consuming ingestion becomes, requiring dedicated data engineering teams whenever a data source with new schemas or structures is added to the ingestion pipeline. The United States Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate (IWTSD) and Singapore’s Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA), the Seekers for this Challenge, are seeking a novel solution for data ingestion and curation which can adapt its method of data ingestion and remain agnostic to data schema, types, and formats.
