Time doesn’t stop for anyone but as the Coronavirus hit the world, it brought time to a standstill for some but for others, there were decades where nothing happened; and then there were weeks when decades happened. Here we analyse the Indian Economy to understand what businesses gained traction during the pandemic and what sectors faced resistance to their performance. We'll try to explain what exactly caused the 23.9% drop in the Indian GDP for April - June 2020 compared to the erstwhile year and also try to analyse which sectors have come out of this slump and which sectors are still lagging behind after measures have been taken to open up the economy. For this, we consider January 2020 as our base month and give it a score of 100 and the sector-wise monthly performance is compared to this base month’s consumption.

DESIGNING THE LAYER This step involves conceptualizing the solution and defining the components required for implementation Storage: Bring data to an internal storage layer. This is a very important step, considering that the sources are purely for data transfer and there is no guarantee of persistence or availability.

The normalised files would then be picked by scheduled batch processing jobs DATA INGESTION COMPONENTS File Watcher: Identifies new files and triggers data processing jobs Workflow Orchestrator: Runs defined data processing workflow to [...]
