Do you ever dream about clean reliable data that can be manipulated and reported on across your various teams, stored effectively and always accessible to all who need it, when they need it? These three organizations do! This session is for those who are exploring or implementing a technology system or data warehouse solution to respond to their organizational needs for information. Join us to learn about the nuances, complications and victories of three mid-size nonprofit organizations who are at various stages of developing and executing organizational wide technology solutions for M&E. Panelists will describe the relationship between their M&E framework and the approach to their technology solution. Whether you are just starting out or knee deep into your own system, participants will leave the session with a very comprehensive and practical list of do’s and don’ts.
