What is asked by the Stakeholder is to create support for the functional evaluation, to test the user experience, and to suggest new features for the general improvement of the tool.

Prodigys Group has launched a challenge that could be of interest to many T4EU Alliance Students and academic staff!

The Stakeholder Challenge consists in designing an improvement action for their Business Intelligence platform “AgrEGG” already used by many Fortune 500 companies. Thanks to its ability to quickly combine any type of data, regardless of quantity and source, the platform allows you to easily explore data thanks to its drill down, aggregation and intelligent visualization capabilities.

Data exploration is no longer just linear but becomes dynamic, scalable, flexible, and real-time. The powerful calculation engine, starting from different data sources, can process complex mathematical formulas to build statistics and graphs analysis to measure and monitor KPIs from any database or data source.
Students, with any academic background, and academic staff will work in groups for three days (10th /11th /12th May 2023) creating support for the functional evaluation of the tool, testing the user experience, and suggesting new features for the toll overall improvement.
The following work steps are planned during the three-day Challenge:

  1. User analysis: the creation of own dashboard and evaluation of frontend and backend usability.
  2. Benchmark Market: research of similar software highlighting its specialities and success factors.
  3. Tuning User Interface: redesigning some elements/sections.
  4. Concept plug-in: the creation of additional services which can increase the effectiveness of the product/service.
    Winners will be awarded 1,500 euros.
