Insights from COVID-19
Enterprises’ long-term spending budgets have been impacted by the fall in revenue caused by COVID-19. As a result, some businesses are rethinking their investment in analytical solutions. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on the consumer packaged goods (CPG) and retail businesses. These industries are likely to drive considerable growth in the market because they are leveraging the use of analytical solutions to analyse the ensuing changes in consumer behaviour across brands and channels. Various brands are analysing media data by region in order to use analytical tools to optimise investments in relation to a target market in a specific geographic location on the pandemic timeline. Marketing analytical tools are being used by ecommerce organisations to optimise the launch of campaigns and offers in order to raise awareness of their services.
Governments throughout the world are employing analytical methods to collect travel data and information from hospitals in order to predict the spread of the coronavirus sickness and associated risks. Furthermore, law enforcement and healthcare organisations are employing analytical methods to gain access to location intelligence in order to follow the whereabouts of people who have been instructed to self-isolate. COVID-19 has the greatest harmful impact on industries that rely heavily on human movement, such as hospitality and travel. As a result, financial analytical solutions and risk analytics, among other things, are being adopted by numerous businesses in these industries. Risk analytics solutions are being developed by a number of geospatial analytics companies, including GeoSpark Analytics and Esri. For example, Esri created a customised Covid-19 ArcGIS Hub in March 2020 that gathers and shares essential information using geographic data.
The market for analytics as a service is seeing a surge in demand for real-time data to track and evaluate COVID-19’s impact. It is intended to present market participants with attractive opportunities. As a result, firms like IBM and Oracle Corporation are focusing on developing analytical tools that allow for the tracking of COVID-19 situations. IBM, for example, stated in March 2020 that it will provide tools that leverage IBM Watson to access and analyse data from the World Health Organization as well as many national, state, and local governments. These capabilities, which include an artificial intelligence (AI) enhanced interactive Incidents Map of the COVID-19 data and statistics such as the number of confirmed instances by cities, states, and countries, have been integrated into The Weather Channel app. It also includes information like patient education materials, public health information, and the locations of important healthcare clinics. It also includes an interactive dashboard built on IBM Cognos Analytics that allows users to dig deeper into the data and filter it by location.
