Invent Value is a collaborative innovation platform that empowers organizations to tap the mindshare of their people for gathering diverse input, generating new ideas, and evaluating possible solutions to complex challenges.

Background

Invent Value is a web application that was running for 5 years with accumulating technical debt. The project begin when the owner reached out to me to add Machine Learning capabilities to their service. After I delivered an initial prototype service that leverages image classifier, we discussed several options to integrate it to their existing service. After discovering the enormous amount of technical debt that has accumulated over many years built with technologies that no-one likes to learn and touch, we decided it's time for the reboot.
