The Indian School of Business (ISB) has launched a first-of-its-kind initiative titled — IndiaPulse@ISB — that will bring together large amounts of data at one place and act as a dashboard in exploring indicators of economic activity, healthcare, jobs, skills, migration and other related sectors.
It was launched by Digital Identity Research Initiative (DIRI), which targets a multidisciplinary research initiative.
It was launched on July 5, 2017, in collaboration with the Omidyar Network. This initiative remains committed to producing timely research that facilitates policy and strategic decision-making in India.
Professor Bhagwan Chowdhry, Executive Director – DIRI said IndiaPulse@ISB will serve as a ready reckoner for various stakeholders who wish to benefit from this analysis.
He also said that deeper insights are not readily available across platforms. ISB, through its thought leadership, is enabling the country to embrace an objective data-driven approach in policy formulation, decision-making and research.
The first edition of IndiaPulse@ISB focuses on GST and brings to fore various insights, covering states across the country.
