Challenge: no. 3: Reinventing Corporate Creativity
Problem: Innovation is key part of keeping up with current trends and the competition . It is therefore necessary to collect and maintain new ideas. The first issue is actively supporting empl oyees to come up with their own ideas. The second part contains tracking, evaluating, and supporting accepted ideas during their lifespan from feasibility study to eventual completion and implementation. We aim to tackle these challenges in our proposed solution.
Solution: We propose a web board-like application for ideas submissions. Users are incentivized to share their ideas by obtaining tokens whenever their idea passes to the next stage. Others can interact with these submissions, give ‘kudos’ and comment their thoughts, further incentivizing user interaction. Idea managers, using different part of the UI then can review and guide the ideas through other stages of development. Integration with Azure ensures scalability and integration with MS ecosystem.
Impact: Minimal barrier of entry and gamification aims to increase the number of idea submissions. Board-like structure prompts employee interactions and will lead to other employees becoming invested, incentivizing cooperation, and grouping on projects with hopes of cultivating innovation driven culture. Managers are provided with a streamlined process that will help them transform ideas into reality, saving their time and keeping every stage of the way in one system, reducing chaos.
Feasibility: The whole system is built to rely on Azure, making it very scalable according to company needs. For our system to be functional we need cooperation and support from CEPS, however cost-wise system is really undemanding for deployment and managing.
What you built: We completed web application, that is built to be deployed on Azure with all its infrastructure. It has overview of all the ideas that are processed in CEPS, with option to add details, that are needed for the idea to be processed and has automatic evaluation of ideas. Based on this platform we created PowerBI dashboard, that shows in real time information about ideas that are currently processed. https://github.com/balooooooooo/greenhack2024
What you had before: We had no code for this challenge before. We created every aspect of our platform on hackathon. We used these open source technologies: we use Python backend for our app and Flask for temporary server.
What comes next: We want to deploy our solution in cooperation with Ceps on their Azure infrastructure, our system should be fully functional and used to manage employee ideas.
