DICT wins Snowflake award for rapid vaccination rollout

CloudHealthcareMore NewsPhilippines

Snowflake, the Data Cloud company, has collaborated with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and local analytics company, Intellection, to build a single unified view of vaccine data in support of the Philippine government’s mass vaccination program. 

Snowflake presented DICT with an award at the annual Snowflake Data Drivers Awards under its Data for Good category. This award recognizes an organization leveraging enhanced data analytics to make informed decisions to save, extend and improve lives and/or the environment.                                                      

The collaboration began in March 2021 and to date, the platform built by Intellection, which is powered by Snowflake, has processed 95 million vaccine records and 500,000 input files coming from 8,100 local government units (LGUs) with zero maintenance staff, zero downtime and a 24×7 operation that is fully automated.

This enabled the smooth importing, distributing, administering and monitoring of vaccines to 81 provinces, 146 cities, 1,500 municipalities and 42,046 barangays across the archipelago.        

DICT partnered with Intellection to configure and build a repository data warehouse within one week, following the mandate that obligated all qualified Filipinos to register and submit necessary data to their respective LGUs.         

“If there is one way to counteract the severe resource limitation, it is through informed decision-making with the use of accessible, organized data,” said Sonny Halili, CEO of Intellection.
