A critical part of collecting data is learning from it to better inform decisions and drive critical outcomes.  Therefore, the ability to have a tool which integrates raw data with off-the-shelf and customized platforms for analysis and further visualization is critical.

This session will be around technologies and platforms used for not only improving the data collection process but also for what you can do with your data once it’s been collected. A panel of three will share their practical experience in using different tools for mobile data collection and the associated tools and services used to the most out of their raw data – creating useable analysis and visualizations. Each presenter them will go over the following questions:

•    What tools were used?
•    Why these tools where chosen?
•    How were these tools used?
•    What were the challenges?

Through Q&A, the final purpose of this session is to spark discussion around the opportunities offered by these technologies and gather insight from the attendees. The panelists will approach the session from distinct perspectives, as a technology developer (SurveyCTO), an implementing organization (Save the Children) and, lastly, an independent evaluation firm (IMC Worldwide).
