Palantir creates software to manage, analyze, and secure data and is helping some of the world’s most important institutions use their data to solve their most urgent problems
For example, during the COVID19 outbreak in Q1 2020, more than a dozen countries used data-mining software provided by Palantir Technologies Inc. for coronavirus response efforts
The firm’s software enables customers to integrate and analyze all their data so they can investigate questions they couldn’t easily answer before. Palantir makes it easier for customers to manage data like software engineers manage code. From delivering disaster relief by helping agencies marshal emergency data and resources to building safer automobiles, Palantir can help make their partners better at their most important work.
