Non-profit sector, as any other sector, produces a wealth of data that plays a fundamental role in the strategic and operational decision making of the organizations. Nevertheless, many NGOs face a major challenge on storing and integrating the data produced in the field, hence limiting its decision and learning capacity. Data warehousing and integration is an approach that could help fill this gap and Catholic Relief Services is about to embark on this journey. During this workshop the facilitation team will work with participant NGOs to foster collective thinking to help us learn from each other on the topics below:
a) Identifying needs. What are the major challenges and needs in terms of data warehousing, integration and visualization?
b) Sketching the characteristics of a successful data warehousing, integration and visualization solution, within and outside your organization in terms of:
-Best practices and standards
-Technological platform. Most important features.
-Governance. Data access and sharing.
-Privacy and protection.
c) Foundational conditions that enable a successful implementation, and potential risks
d) Opportunities for collaboration and interchange of experiences
The results of the workshop will be shared among the participants.
