A desperate need

A part of Danish authorities urgently needed expert insight from a highly specialised data analytics team to help collect, structure, connect and confirm the correctness of critical and relevant data across Denmark, in order to minimise potential disruptions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Fast execution

Halfspace established fully automated ETL pipelines (Extract, Transform, Load) for several data sources. We orchestrated it with Azure Data Factory and transformed it with Apache Spark in Databricks. As a result, the Danish authorities were able to access COVID-19-related data across the entire country. 

A digital core

Today the Danish Medicines Agency have full transparency of their supply chains and stock levels of critical medical equipment. This make them able to navigate with high precision and speed, when the next virus outbreak might happen.

Key takeaways

Any organisation can benefit from capturing, analysing and sharing vast amounts of data to gain insights and thereby enhance decision-making. Being able to take precautions, plan and react well in advance is crucial in order to ensure supply chain efficiency whether in the public or private sector.
