COVID-19 is a public health crisis that has profoundly impacted the way in which we live our lives resulting in substantial changes for all businesses across industries. It is critical that organizations swiftly work with internal and external data to understand trends and patterns and react appropriately to shifts in their markets. Databricks offers a compelling data engineering and data science platform that can be leveraged to unearth these critical insights, and Thorogood has experience developing and deploying Databricks solutions to this end for enterprise organizations adapting to the current situation.

Effectively leveraging internal and external data has been a strategic priority for most enterprise organizations over the past several years, but the importance of tapping into data and extracting meaningful signals has never been more apparent than during the current pandemic. Organizations that quickly shift resources towards COVID-19 data analysis are well placed to react to the changed business environment and understand how competitors are reacting.

This analysis is aiding decision-making in terms of reallocation of resource and priority, especially with respect to customer development, marketing, and supply chain. By taking advantage of cloud data platforms and powerful data analysis and integration tools such as Databricks and Power BI, valuable and timely insights can be delivered to decision-makers.
