Odisha partners with SAS & CSM Technologies to create COVID-19 Dashboard
The Odisha government has been working in association with SAS India, and its partner CSM Technologies for a COVID-19 dashboard. The massive graphic data visualization dashboard depicts multiple real-time statistics on Odisha’s COVID-19 administration across numerous KPIs via interactive charts, graphs, diagrams and designs.
The page also portrays the status, location, demographics, spread and trend analysis of cases at the most granular level. Thus, state officials are using dynamic visualization capabilities and advanced analytical tools to chart COVID-19 resistance plans.
The state COVID-19 plans are based on the analyses of the data on the number of patients, the potential increase of the disease, and existing bed capacities and ventilator reading. These are being ascertained through the help of the following factors:
- An estimate of infection risk profile
- Data on the responsive population of geographic regions
- Impact of lockdowns and migrant influx on the infection rate.
Signs of Progress
Noshin Kagalwalla, VP & Managing Director, SAS India, said, “The key to containing the COVID-19 pandemic is to harness and analyse related data and offer actionable insights. By offering SAS COVID-19 Outbreak Management Solution to the Government of Odisha, we reiterate our commitment to helping governments and organisations globally to help save lives and contain the pandemic by leveraging the power of analytics”
The Odisha government has attained a balance of public safety & economic activity, as they have shown digital leadership by factoring in dynamic outputs. “Odisha is pushing the frontiers of digital transformation by investing in emerging technologies such as big data and advanced analytics. We looked at COVID-19 as an opportunity to leverage data to take proactive decisions and remain one step ahead in our war against the pandemic. And that marked the genesis of the Odisha COVID-19 dashboard which is accepted today as the single version of truth for citizens and administrators alike,” said Manoj Kumar Mishra, Secretary, Electronics & Information Technology Department, Government of Odisha.
