a World Leading Christian University
For the Data Science & Innovation labs within International Business Engineering (IBE) program at Petra Christian University, our involvement with Covid-19 came when we learnt together in the BE4140 Project Business Analytics class (February – June 2020). In early March (Saturday 3/7/2020 WIB), we were contemplating to have a real-life project to predict the Covid-19 using data available from GITHub as prepared by John Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering, and building a Dashboard using MicroStrategy Analytical Platform that allow the Data to tell stories and sing loudly with some kind of predictions of when this social distancing will end. This is the main purpose: to build a closed-loop Business Intelligence system since there are new data daily.
In particular, we collected (crawled) official data over several years from Departemen Pendidikan & Kebudayaan, build an Enterprise Data Warehouse (i.e., Warehouse Database), performed an ETL (Extract Transform Load) to build an OLAP data model, and quantitatively answer the research questions (supported by data).
All findings are presented in a Dashboard.
