Logi Analytics, an insightsoftware company partnered with United Way of the National Capital Area (United Way NCA) to host a month-long virtual hackathon. Participants, both existing and non-Logi users were given access to a large, anonymized dataset from United Way NCA's programs and to a virtual instance of Logi Composer as their primary embedded analytics tool. Their task was to deliver a new analytics dashboard that provided insights into United Way NCA's dataset.
The winners of the United Way NCA Hackathon are a team of Data Scientists from STCHealth comprised of four people: Sawyer Koops, Kaye Kleine, Jordan McKinney, and Roni Salman who received a $1,500 gift card for their accomplishment. Hackathon participant Yu Song also received a $500 gift card for his time and effort in building a solution as a first-time Logi user.
The STCHealth team developed a two-prong solution providing insight to the target population, supporting volunteer activity and financials and program outcomes/efficacy. United Way's Landing Dashboard is the starting point for exploration and descriptive analysis. It includes volume key performance indicators as well as visuals to stratify program participation, income/age/race across regions, and veteran/employment/justice system contact across the dataset. Clicking a program or region here provides users a link to a filtered view of the United Way NCA's Outcomes Dashboard. This dashboard provides the "so-what" analysis for United Way NCA's programs, with visuals representing target vs actual volumes, target completion percentages, and financial metrics.
Logi Analytics would like to thank all the participants for their hard work and submissions, and offer congratulations to all the winners.
We hope to host another hackathon soon.
