Three teams brought their solutions to the judges, each playing to different themes. Competing with the winning team, Raja Chithambaram created a completely serverless AWS data collection and profiling environment, showing how elastic cloud computing can be. Bhavin Shah and Bala Pellaru created an enterprise data lake with Talend and AWS which demonstrated how SQL and noSQL repositories can supplement each other. The winning team combined UiPath for Robotic Processing Automation (RPA) , Talend to clean and load the source data, and AWS s3 containers for daily file storage.. They collected and stored both traditional and new sabermetric player stats, historical pitcher vs. batter stats, weather, alignment of the stadiums, and other data to be used in future hackathons to predict the best lineup for daily fantasy baseball.
