Tackling the hardest questions in global development is an information-intensive process. Different people understand different aspects of the issues, but how can managers assemble and collate distributed expertise about hard-to-quantify concepts? How can they get from qualitative knowledge to data they can use to evaluate, analyze and compare? And for those of us interested in creating global indexes, can anything help manage the chaos of that research process? 

Amida Technology Solutions and the Open Gov Hub invite you to a re-launch event for Indaba, a purpose-built, data collaboration platform already in use that answers these very questions. Whether you’re interested in index creation, qualitative M&E, research process improvements and collaboration, or support for data-driven decision making, Indaba can help you bring your network of experts to bear on the questions you care about.


Please join us. Come to learn more about how Indaba can work for you. Stay for break out discussions with similar organizations touching on topics like researcher recruitment, methodology, and publishing and promoting the results of your work. Together, we will cover the rewards and challenges of measuring the things that matter the most, even if they are the hardest things to measure.

Indaba is an open source platform operated by Amida Technology Solutions, a DC-based, software company focused on using data to solve human problems. Amida’s provides program management, integration support and operational oversight to a broad array of commercial and public sector customers.
