About TAG Data Science & Analytics Innovation Awards

The TAG Data Science & Analytics Society aims to connect and inspire analytical minds to foster innovative uses of data. Every year we provide a platform for the best and brightest to show off their incredible accomplishments in this increasingly pivotal functional area.

  • Have you developed a unique solution for a worthy social cause?
  • Has your team enabled business value through novel analytical approaches?
  • Have you worked with COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) and open-source tools to build new solutions?

The DS&A Innovation Awards tells 3-5 of these amazing stories to hundreds of local data sciene and analytics leaders in consulting, government, industry, and academia.

The purpose of the Innovation Awards is to highlight innovative and impactful solutions in Data Science, Analytics, Big Data, and related domains. Georgia based organizations are invited to submit nominations describing the solutions (implemented in production during 2020, ’21, or ’22), highlighting results and verification of impact (business, social, or organizational), and other insights.

Do you think you have what it takes to be a finalist? Please submit your project by September 9th to be eligible. Finalists will be notified by September 26th and asked to present their efforts to a panel of judges. Finalists will be invited to, and recognized at, the Innovation Awards Dinner on November 17th*.

We know software vendors and solution providers work on amazing projects with their clients. We encourage you to work with your Georgia-based customers to submit their solutions. It’s a fantastic way to increase exposure for their brands in the analytic space; differentiating themselves in front of high-end analytics talent and strengthening their brand as a dynamic technologically forward-thinking place to work.
