Free platform, data and resources to lift public sectors during the outbreak
Dun & Bradstreet, a global provider of business decisioning data and analytics, has launched a data platform for government agencies to inform mission-critical response and relief efforts across state and local communities. The firm is also making a number of resources available to private and public sector organizations to help mitigate risk and support continued business activity.
“We recognize that communities are managing through unprecedented circumstances. Our team of data scientists are lending their skills and analytics capabilities to help organizations across public and private sectors as they face the economic downturn resulting from this global pandemic,” Stephen Daffron, president of Dun & Bradstreet, said in a statement. “We are all in this together and consider it our duty as a trusted advisor to find ways to use our insights and mission-critical data and analytics to help businesses manage risk and turn uncertainty of the moment into confidence in the future.”
Dun & Bradstreet is actively supporting governments and communities through these challenging times and using its insights and resources to help power business recovery efforts around the world.
Data for Decisioning
Agencies need data to inform mission-critical decisions and to address this need, Dun & Bradstreet launched a complimentary COVID-19 Business Impact Research Platform. The platform provides data, analytics and insights to help government agencies and officials determine the full impact of the virus on their communities to:
- Plan risk mitigation and recovery initiatives
- Prioritize emergency management and economic support for the industries, businesses, and communities with the most pressing needs
- Determine workforce disruptions and supply chain risks
The COVID-19 Business Impact Research Platform is built on Dun & Bradstreet’s Data Cloud, containing comprehensive global information on more than 355 million businesses. The Platform is available to U.S. federal, state, and local government agencies, as well as members of Congress and their staffs.
The firm also joined forces with several U.S. federal, local and state government agencies, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the National Economic Council at the White House, and the U.S. Small Business Administration to provide the essential data and insights needed to inform the development and distribution of CARES Act funding, and the process for economic recovery.
“With 178 years of experience and the ability to understand the needs of the public and private sectors, our role as a trusted advisor becomes ever more important in times of crisis as we work in partnership with government agencies, businesses and communities,” Daffron continued. “Now is the time for us to do our part to work together to support our communities and help them plan their recovery efforts in order to embark on a prosperous future.”
