Celebrating the movers and makers

The Cloudera Data Impact Awards celebrated the movers and makers recognizing organizations moving swiftly towards the future and building innovative solutions by making what was impossible yesterday, possible today. The winning organizations' implementations demonstrate outstanding achievements in fulfilling their mission, technical advancement, and overall impact.

Winners were announced at a virtual ceremony hosted by Cloudera Field CTO and Cyber Security Lead, Carolyn Duby, and her colleague Daniel Hand.

Tackling workplace and societal challenges

The Awards saw a number of categories however one category, the People First category, celebrated organizations tackling some of the most difficult workplace and societal challenges affecting companies and the world, transforming the future of workplace culture and society as a whole through the employee lifecycle.

Cloudera Chief Diversity Officer Sarah Shin introduced the winner, Bank Mandiri, explaining that the People First category sees Cloudera "look for stories of inclusive impact, business benefits, and innovation."

During the pandemic, Bank Mandiri used Cloudera Data Science Workbench (CDSW) to provide agile banking solutions that were more adaptable, flexible, and quicker at making decisions. With dashboards powered by CDSW, Bank Mandiri can achieve insights from numerous data sources that streamline banking operations and allow faster customer care. These dashboards help the bank monitor its branches, tracking data such as footfall, volume and value of transactions, frequency of transactions, as well as the changes in geographic zones designated by the government as high or low risks. And with these insights Bank Mandiri can dynamically open or close branches as needed and proactively inform customers and staff accordingly. With such an agile response, customers can transact with minimal disruptions and get access to financial services, without putting employees at risk.

The United Overseas Bank was a finalist in this category.
