K’taka govt adopts Nasscom developed Covid tracking platform
Bengaluru: Karnataka government has adopted a Covid tracking platform developed by Nasscom Task Force to continue its fight against the pandemic using technology, said a minister on Saturday.
“We have been driving all our efforts tirelessly to fight this ongoing crisis and it has been great to witness the industry joining their hands against our war on Covid. In these testing times technology innovation has been our greatest ally,” said Deputy Chief Minister C. N. Ashwathnarayan in a statement.
The end to end tracking platform is based on open architecture using advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) models to help state governments take informed decisions.
Coming with a plug and play option, Karnataka government can choose the features it wants to use and can also integrate the solution with its existing platform. It can be hosted on any cloud platform as preferred by the government.
Multiple IT players have collaborated for free to build the platform whose initial set of dashboards will be offered to the government.
Six dashboards have been developed for the southern state which include Covid summary, Covid source analysis, testing summary, tests by category, hospital capacity and India summary.
Nasscom Task Force consists of Intel India, Fractal Analytics, Microsoft India, AWS, Mindtree, SAP Labs India, Infosys, Accenture, Wipro, Sprinklr, Tableau, Mapbox and others.
The IT industry body aims to deliver a similar platform to other states as well.
