DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Palantir Technologies Inc. (NYSE:PLTR) announced today that it was named as a 2021 Global AWS Partner Network (APN) Public Sector Partner Award winner for its Palantir platform in its work to combat COVID-19. The AWS Global Public Sector Partner Awards recognize leaders in the channel playing a key role helping customers drive innovation and build solutions using AWS Cloud technology.
Palantir’s platform was instrumental in the fight against COVID-19 by providing customers a secure platform to integrate, harmonize, and analyze COVID-19 data. At the NIH’s National Covid Cohort Collaborative (N3C), Palantir software was used to accelerate research and improve understanding of the disease. More than 1000 researchers used N3C to collaborate on hundreds of projects that ultimately helped guide an effective response to COVID-19. Palantir was also used by other organizations across the U.S. government to better respond to the pandemic.
“Our software was designed to tackle the world’s hardest problems, and we are proud to have partnered with AWS to rise to the occasion during an unprecedented public health crisis,” said Palantir vice-president Josh Harris. “Palantir’s platform is ideally suited to strengthen the ability of organizations across healthcare systems to combat the pandemic. By centralizing disparate data sources and harmonizing that data, Palantir allowed scientists to accelerate their patient research and improve their response to COVID-19.”
