“In the past, I would get emails from executives asking about an incident and whether it had any impact on the company. I had very little information. It was such a disadvantage for me because I didn’t have the critical information at my fingertips,” said Jeff DiPrimio, Alnylam Pharmaceuticals’ Senior Director of Global Security and Building Operations. “Now, Dataminr has put us in a much better position to respond to executives who ask us about [an event]. I can share the impact of the situation and our response plans.”(Case Study)

“Dataminr has been a critical partner in introducing this real-time alerting capability into the work of the UN. Having real-time awareness of what is happening around us wherever we work is a core capability for informing real-time humanitarian and crisis response,” said Robert Kirkpatrick, Director, UN Global Pulse.
