Civis Analytics Launches Toolkit for a Data-Driven COVID Vaccine Campaign

Civis Analytics | February 23, 2021

Civis Analytics, a data science firm innovating at the intersection of public good and scientific best practices, today announced the launch of its COVID Vaccine Campaign Toolkit. This resource hub includes key information for organizations looking to use data to inform persuasive and equitable COVID vaccination outreach. The toolkit provides guidance on each aspect of an outreach campaign that requires a specific, tailored approach. These include: • Messaging and messenger: Results from scientific experiments to guide messaging and spokespeople, so the most persuasive language is used for each audience. This includes new research on employer-specific messaging, conducted in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. Crystal Son, MPH, Director of Healthcare Analytics at Civis Analytics, also shares examples of counterintuitive findings, tangible advice for any vaccine campaign team, and comparisons to Civis research on other vaccine messaging. • Resource allocation: An interactive vaccine hesitancy map that visualizes which U.S. counties are most likely to need additional intervention to drive up vaccination rates. This map can guide groups that need to determine where to focus education or outreach efforts. • Process: Leveraging best practices from recent 2020 Census outreach campaigns, Civis outlines a five-step process organizations can follow to ensure their vaccine campaign is data-driven and set up for success. "Vaccine uptake is absolutely critical to herd immunity -- which is what we all need to recover from the pandemic," said Son. "Too often, we assume that a one-size-fits-all approach to public health campaigns can work. We continue to see that the language and messengers that work for one group can backfire with another -- so we really need to eliminate our own biases and rely on the data to guide our campaigns. For many of us, this is the most important campaign of our lifetime, and we need to do this right." About Civis Analytics Civis Analytics helps leading public and private sector organizations use data to gain a competitive advantage in how they identify, attract, and engage people. With a blend of proprietary data, technology and advisory services, and an interdisciplinary team of data scientists, developers, and survey science experts, Civis helps organizations stop guessing and start using statistical proof to guide decisions.

Lumenore | March 31, 2022

Lumenore, which develops and markets fully integrated cloud-based business intelligence and advanced analytics solutions, introduced today a new version of its AI-driven recommendations and conversational analytics platform. Lumenore’s highly secure self-service data infrastructure delivers an enterprise data universe and organizational intelligence and dramatically simplifies decision making at all levels of the organization. Lumenore’s platform provides seamless data acquisition, improved accessibility, and a powerful architecture for unparalleled performance. It features text and voice-based insight, utilizing natural language querying with Ask Me and automated data discovery with Do You Know to provide faster and easier access to actionable business recommendations from data. Lumenore also announced the availability of 100 new data connectors—bringing the total to more than 150—that provide fast and seamless connectivity to leading CRM applications such as Excel, QuickBooks, Salesforce Insights and Shopify and immediately help organizations visualize metrics that matter most to a business, bridging the gap between data and decisions. Donald Farmer Joins Lumenore as Strategic Advisor Lumenore also announced that Donald Farmer, former Microsoft and Qlik executive and globally recognized as a visionary product leader, sought after speaker and author, has joined Lumenore as a strategic advisor. “We all know too well that the volume of data in business is almost overwhelming. But data without analysis is a wasted asset - and analysis without action is a wasted effort,” said Farmer. “We need to bridge the gap between data and decisions and it’s not enough to have a few smart analysts or data scientists." “Lumenore has built a platform for organizational intelligence developed from a deep understanding of enterprise needs,” added Farmer. “I am impressed that their natural language capabilities are not just for cute demos but enable widespread data literacy and engagement. Similarly, their data discovery and augmented analytics features are genuinely self-service, but still built over a robust and secure data universe. It’s an impressive approach for enterprises who have struggled with the inflexibility of reporting and the risks of ungoverned self-service,” Farmer said. “We are honored that Donald has joined Lumenore and will be advising us in our product development and go-to-market strategies,” said Anurag Shrivastava, Lumenore Founder and CEO. “The pandemic has sped up digital transformation across industries and sectors which means that we now have even more data than anticipated, and it has made consumer behavior harder to predict. The solution is not to build more dashboards, because dashboards are focused on an individual viewer, but instead empower organizational intelligence and new forms of organizational decision making, which are distributed and collaborative,” Shrivastava said. “Lumenore delivers a seamless experience to the entire team which helps them to derive insights from raw data and have a transparent view of its operations.” About Lumenore Lumenore develops and markets advanced analytics and business intelligence solutions delivered through an intuitive, AI-powered platform. Lumenore’s solutions enable organizations to build their entire data universe as well as automate and optimize organizational decision-making. Lumenore utilizes a common dataset to feed its powerful platform to visualize, analyze, actionize, as well as monetize business operations.
