This will empower enterprises with the foresight to anticipate what’s coming next and make critical decisions that not only protect their business and people, but in turn contribute to a healthier, safer, and more prosperous world.
TORONTO (PRWEB) February 08, 2023
BlueDot Inc., a leading artificial and human intelligence organization for detecting, assessing, and responding to global infectious disease threats, announced today that it is now a global Microsoft partner with its Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) intelligence offering.
This enables its ecosystem partners to harness the power of data and human expertise, in strengthening organizational readiness and resilience in the face of a growing number of disruptive infectious disease threats.
The COVID-19 pandemic exposed how operations and employees are left vulnerable if effective disease surveillance is not available and acted upon. Microsoft Azure users will now have the ability to seamlessly process and consume BlueDot’s disease intelligence data directly via Azure. This includes alerts and risk assessments, in addition to a wide variety of disease and environmental datasets, analysis, and modelling which support employee health and safety, emergency response planning, supply chain risk management, and demand forecasting for essential medical products.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Microsoft and bring our global infectious disease intelligence and forecasts to its ecosystem partners” stated Dr. Kamran Khan, CEO and founder of BlueDot. “This will empower them with the foresight to anticipate what’s coming next and make critical decisions that not only protect their business and people, but in turn contribute to a healthier, safer, and more prosperous world.”
Known for alerting organizations of COVID-19 five days before the World Health Organization, and correctly predicting an outbreak of Zika virus in Florida, U.S. six months before it occurred. BlueDot has since expanded datasets and modelling to address shifting global trends in infectious disease. BlueDot’s intelligence is available via dashboards, emailed alerts and analyses, and APIs to integrate directly and smoothly into an organization’s business intelligence systems and decision-making processes.
BlueDot's intelligence platform empowers public and private sector organizations to rapidly identify, understand, and effectively respond to global biothreats. Combining human and artificial intelligence to track hundreds of infectious diseases and syndromes worldwide, it applies academic data science expertise to anticipate global spread and impact. BlueDot ensures clients know first when disease events emerge, are prepared to respond, can focus on what matters, and can act swiftly and confidently when needed. Founded in 2013 and used by the City of Chicago, Taiwan CDC, Air Canada and more, BlueDot helps clients make critical decisions with clarity and confidence. Learn more at http://www.bluedot.global.
