Your Research Team Applied The Following Strategy
Information on the funding history, revenue, estimated number of employees, number of customers of DataRobot and Amazon Sagemaker in the healthcare segment is not available.
Our first strategy was to look for information on the company website of Datarobot and Amazon Sagemaker. Our idea here was to review the company websites, press releases, annual reports to find the required information. This strategy worked to an extent as we were able to find information on the funding details, customer names of these companies. However, there was no information on the funding history, revenue, number of employees, on the healthcare segment exclusively. We had thought that this strategy may work as companies publish information about its organization stats on its website, annual reports, however, since these companies provide services to other industries including healthcare, there was no separate information found. Datarobot being a private company does not publish annual reports, and Amazon Sagemaker which is a part of Amazon company (public company) has also not published this information exclusively only for Amazon Sagemaker.
Our second strategy was to search for information on health publication sites like healthcareitnews, Healthline, medicalnewstoday among others. The idea here was to find publications on the healthcare industry that would include commentaries by industry experts, company spokespersons that could be used to devise such information. However, no such information was found. At most, we could find details about the company’s services in the healthcare segment, we had thought that this strategy may work as sites like these publish information on emerging technologies, tools, in the health industry and may have published this information. We then looked for interviews of the company employees like executives from the healthcare segment on sites like business insider, and CNBC among others. Our idea here was to see if any of the industry executives have quoted stats about the company in their interviews, however, there was no such information found.
Our third strategy was to look for information on company database sites like Crunchbase, Pitchbook, Hoovers, zoominfo among others. Our idea here was to see if any of the database sites have published information on these companies along with stats for the healthcare segment. This strategy did not work as the database found was for the overall company and not exclusive for the healthcare segment. For Amazon sagemaker, the database found was of the parent organization and not of the business unit. We had thought that this strategy may work as database sites publish information on the company overview like the number of employees, revenues, and would have published this information.
