On March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO), declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak a global pandemic which sparked economic as well as social disruption on a gargantuan scale as the number of deaths continued to rise the world over. Nations of the world were affected economically as businesses struggled to adapt leading to recession in some cases. But think about it…the first critical step was to collect and analyze data. The most obvious example was the “Flatten the Curve Graphic” (as seen below) which was used to give a visual representation of how isolation and social distancing would limit the rate of infection. Now as we near the one year anniversary of the pandemic declaration one thing has been evident from the onset – the transition to digital is no longer a “nice to have” but is now a critical requirement; and the analysis of data is crucial for making informed decisions.

Those businesses that thrived learned quickly and adjusted. Such as the COVID-19 Allocation of Resources for Employees (CARE) program used in Jamaica to coordinate the application for government assistance to the affected population. This application was launched within two weeks and received over 7000 applications within the first day a feat made possible by using an online digital platform.
