“Having access to an integrated set of diverse COVID-19 data sources with a common data model can help accelerate analysis of critical supply chain issues in our work with FEMA and other agencies. For example, as we look to understand the distribution and availability of COVID-19 testing equipment and materials – or the pandemic’s impact on freight flows throughout the country – the C3 AI COVID-19 Data Lake provides a valuable resource in unifying and simplifying access to the necessary data without having to waste time on finding, cleaning, and preparing the data for analysis.”
