We also made heavy use of CouchDB during the Ebola crises to collect data on the impact to
each country.

The technology is not highlighted in the case study, but our SMS and analytics platforms are
both powered by CouchDB (Cloudant).  The data analytics at the bottom of the article was built
using a CouchApp.
