Improving Avian Influenza Emergency Response with Alteryx: USDA, Inspire 2016

1,998 views

Published on

In 2015, the United States poultry industry experienced an outbreak of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI), affecting 15 states and costing the industry an estimated $1.6 billion. As part of the response, Veterinary Services supplied maps and epidemiological analytics to people in the field, trade partners, and other officials. The level of support needed would have been impossible without automating many processes. In this session, you will hear how Alteryx helped support the outbreak response by automating many time-consuming data management and analytical tasks. We will highlight the tools and techniques used that helped simplify what would have been an almost impossible task to deliver and accommodate response areas: weekly mapping, epidemiological analyses, and ad-hoc data management and analytical requests.
