Making Sense of the Covid-19 Pandemic Using Power BI

With all of us saturated with statistics and disparate information, PacteraEDGE used Power BI to provide a global view of the situation.
Making Sense of the Covid-19 Pandemic Using Power BI

Like many of us, PacteraEDGE’s own Data Strategy Director, Joe Thomas, longed to make a contribution to society by helping keep us informed of how each country going through the Covid-19 pandemic as faring against others.

 

IN HIS OWN WORDS

“The lack of detailed analysis options beyond reporting of numbers alone is what prompted me to embark on this journey of preparing a comprehensive dashboard that attempts to paint the full story from the origination in Wuhan China, to its abatement and pick up around the world.

I hope this dashboard (built on PowerBI and intended to be refreshed daily from its sources) will serve to shed a light on the gravity and reality of the situation through a more detailed and informed representation of data.”
