Radnor-based QlikTech, the user-driven business intelligence software vendor, today announced a competition that may appeal to the very enthusiastic open data and civic hacker community in Philadelphia and elsewhere. Its "Take Action Open Data Challenge”, a global competition, will offer three cash prizes, including a top prize of $10,000, for the best apps built on QlikTech software using open, public data sources to analyze important societal problems such as poverty, healthcare issues, education, transportation, and the environment.
The Take Action Open Data Challenge is open to all QlikView customers, partners, developers, and fans, the company's website says.
The app submission deadline is October 31, 2013, and the top three winners will be announced on December 2, 2013. Participants can download the QlikView Personal Edition for free and get more information about the competition here.
