Data Analytics and Reporting for Non-profits
CBIG recognizes that in order to maximize the potential of Big Data and BI solutions on behalf of non-profits and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), it is crucial to shift our thinking and adopt a different view in terms of goals. Most non-profit organizations have an altogether different agenda that involves using financial resources to achieve mission-based aspirations to create communal, social value rather than increasing profits or paying dividends to investors. Hence, Bi and Big Data analytics solutions must be sensitive to the unique objectives of non-profit groups and respond accordingly.
For non-profit enterprises, any analytic reporting initiative should be able to ultimately address the fundamental question, “Do our programs make a difference in the challenges we’re trying to resolve?” To help answer this challenge, CBIG has developed specific data integration, reporting, and analytic tools around the tasks necessary to create and manage business intelligence solutions relating to non-profits that best serve their specific objectives. CBIG Consulting works with all types of non-profits, from entities that advocate and fundraise for social change, education, and healthcare-based research, to groups that focus on community outreach and intervention programs, among others.
CBIG understands that non-profits with limited budgets have a distinct responsibility to spend their finite resources wisely, and our non-profit services modules comprise highly functional, cost-effective frameworks to help these groups implement constructive big data initiatives that offer the best chance to derive valuable intelligence and positive outcomes. CBIG’s data analytics consulting services involve helping our non-profit clients develop creative business intelligence solutions to take advantage of the following benefits:
- Implementation of best-practice master data management, data integration, data warehouse and data privacy processes relating to non-profit business models;
- Administration and management of grants and donor and fundraising initiatives, with the ability to quantify campaign success rates in terms of demographic, location, and donation data;
- Ability to use real-time, evidence-based data to better direct and more quickly develop and deploy initiatives and program efforts on behalf of specific population groups;
- Monitoring and evaluation of spending vs. program success rates to create insights into future endeavors;
- Improvement on accountability and transparency to oversight committees, non-profit board members, and government agencies;
- Identification and assessment of need for social intervention/program focus, and follow-through in terms of targeting and deploying specific programs in areas of greatest need for maximum impact.
