From SDG Group we have collaborated on the ‘Plan Cruz Roja RESPONDE’ (Red Cross RESPONDS Plan) deploying an Open Data platform that aims to share information about the Spanish Red Cross's actions to respond to the pandemic.

In March, Spanish Red Cross launched the ‘Plan Cruz Roja RESPONDE’ (Red Cross RESPONDS Plan) to take action in response to COVID-19 in all areas of society that are affected; emergencies, health, social inclusion, education, employment, and the environment. 

Spanish Red Cross, with the collaboration of SDG Group, brings data transparency in its ‘Plan Cruz Roja RESPONDE’ to take action against COVID-19

SDG Group worked with Spanish Red Cross to develop the ‘Spanish Red Cross Open Data Platform’ for its Plan to make data centralized, current, and transparent to all citizens and stakeholders. 

Project’s keys 

The project's biggest challenge was achieving the platform's development and deployment in a short time. Still, it was a success thanks to SDG Group's expertise in Power BI technology and the full involvement of Spanish Red Cross. 

Spanish Red Cross is a pioneer for sharing the ‘Plan Cruz Roja RESPONDE’ information and progress in real-time to consult and make decisions. SDG Group provided the business intelligence that enabled the Spanish Red Cross to use the ‘Spanish Red Cross Open Data Platform’ to unite, analyze, and make different data sources fully transparent. 

Some figures of the ‘Plan Cruz Roja RESPONDE’

  • More than 2 million people received care. 
  • The plan mobilized more than 56,561 volunteers who continue to collaborate nationwide. 
  • More than 590,000 people were supplied with essential goods and medicines.

This project is included within our collaborations in social initiatives in order to provide our maximum value, putting data at the service of organizations.
