2013 has been an amazing year, and thank YOU so much for being part of the DEXTRA journey with us. We had our launch party in June, organised 2 workshops, and rolled out our first challenge by DSM. Come celebrate with us as we usher in the new year!
Here is what we have in store for you:

DSM Sales Forecasting Challenge Round-up: Our winning teams from the DSM Challenge will be giving you lightning presentations on their winning models and ideas. Ms Clara Lee, Director of Business Information Global for DSM, will also be sharing on the experience and memorable moments of running a Data Innovation Challenge from the challenge host's perspective.

Silverline Challenge Announcement: Our next Data Innovation Challenge host, Silverline, will also be announced at the workshop. Silverline creates the first Mobile Senior Ecosystem with the Smartphone as the Hub, and aims to define the future of mobile media, community, security and health for Seniors. Be part of this amazing revolution of bringing Smartphones to the Seniors by participating in this challenge where you can use data innovation to come up with creative ideas to help shape the development of Silverline!
