Data storm 3.0 was an advanced analytics competition organized by the Professional Development Avenue of Rotaract club of University of Moratuwa and University of Colombo, Faculty of Science, in partnership with OCTAVE, the Data and Advanced Analytics Center of Excellence of the John Keells Group. It was held for the 3rd consecutive year and was successfully conducted with nearly 300 delegates for the series of webinars and competitions.

The final five stars of this competition were Binary Trio, Data Dreamers, Team Pan, Team Ares, and Decision Makers over its journey of nearly two and half months. Breaking the traditional approach of a data analytics competition while catering to contestants with the opportunity to interact with the professionals of the industry is the major specialty of this event. Moreover, Data storm 3.0 allowed its participants to identify the way to deal with a particularly given scenario creatively through feasible solutions rather than the usual way of understanding links and patterns between the data presented.

Even though there was a pandemic, the great effort of the committee was able to ensure the flow of the project smoothly as well as successfully. The involvement of OCTAVE was a major driving force. because their support, guidance, and representation were key factors for the accomplishment of the data storm to this extent.

The journey of data storm 3.0 consisted of 6 stages namely;

1. Introductory webinar series through zoom and facebook,
2. Master class 1.0
3. Storming Round
4. Master class 2.0
5. Semifinal Round and
6. Final Round.

In this way, it can be understood the efforts of Rotaractors led to the creation of an extraordinary generation of analysts while making each and every participant, a competent individual.
