The government lacked insight into the (logistical) chain from vaccine supplier to the vaccinated citizen (purchase, ordered versus delivered stock, vaccines and aids), consumption/waste (batch and/or resources).
It was organisationally and politically very challenging due to current data leaks in NL versus managing a crisis. There was a need for an operational planning tool to manage the vaccine distribution process.
In close cooperation with our Gold Partner Microsoft, we convinced RIVM to use the proven power of Azure Public Cloud.
We implemented daily COVID-19 dashboards for the Dutch Government and developed a future state Azure Data Platform: One platform for COVID-19 related data to enable business decision-making.
