InterSystems

Mapping all the stars in the Milky Way Galaxy? InterSystems is there. Providing interoperability for over a billion medical records around the globe? InterSystems has that covered. Processing over a billion transactions a day for a global investment bank? InterSystems is quietly at work in the background.

Whether it’s healthcare, business, or government, digital transformation has changed consumers’ expectations about how their data is accessed and managed. Speed, scale, transactional processing, cloud deployment, and high availability, are all cornerstones of what users expect out of their applications.

InterSystems challenges you to explore and build your own business solutions using our IRIS Data Platform tools to solve for healthcare, business, or consumer-facing problems. InterSystems will offer a $4,000 prize for the best use of our IRIS for Health platform to solve for healthcare challenges and $4,000 for best use of IRIS Data Platform to solve for business or consumer application challenges. Use of our extensive libraries that enable connectivity both within and between hospital systems is not required for healthcare solution proposals.

Plaid

Fintech has made managing money easier—from facilitating new ways to save, pay bills, budget, and so much more. Yet, innovation has lagged behind when it comes to a critical piece of financial health: loan & debt management.

Today, consumer debt in the U.S. exceeds $4 trillion. In particular, student loans and credit card debt are two of the biggest debt categories impacting millions of Americans who often put off saving for emergencies or retirement, getting married, buying a home, or starting a family.

To win our $10,000 prize, use the Plaid API to build an app to disrupt how consumers understand, engage with, manage, pay off or reduce their student and credit card debt.
