Why is data collection important in healthcare? Or Biohazard? Or Education, or even retail? Well, most businesses, NGOs, and healthcare organizations know that data offers insights to allow you to make decisions for your mission, clients, and patients.
In this video from Strata 2013 in New York City, Data expert Sharmila Shahani Mulligan of ClearStory spoke on the suggestion that you need to “Rethink How You See Data.” As she states it, whether your data is being analyzed by Hadoop or Java, and coming to you from internal sources, external, mobile apps or other systems, blending data is a crucial task in analyzing the knowledge you gather. Shahani Mulligan refers to her company’s app as telling a “Living Story.”
We can really relate to that at iFormBuilder, where we speak to people every day that use our iForm mobile apps to help fight poverty and famine in Africa, or audit a teacher’s abilities to educate America’s next generation of leaders. We hear the stories about one NGO’s mission to keep healtcare facilities clean and efficient, and how a transportaion service for the elederly makes that trip to the hospital that much easier for an elderly citizen.
Living stories are everywere, and we’re proud that so many use iForm to make the living a little better.
