  14. 14. Ordex : pros and cons (“business case”) Development organizations / projects / NGOs  Spend less on PM&R (tooling). Spend more on other things.  Better data-quality leads to better decisions and less failure.  Better p.r. through transparency. Helps to get things funded.  Additional training (using Ordex) and consulting (indicator definition)  Transparency also means risks that need to be managed.
  15. 15. Ordex : Challenges Technical / Development  High performance vs. generic vs multi-dimensional  Code quality & documentation  API development  Search index optimization  UX improvement Organizational  More people on board  Embedding in larger structure Financial  Current development funded by Catalist (30%) and Ophileon (70%)  Additional funding needed, preferably from clients
  16. 16. Ordex : Challenges (continued) Policy  Will data really be open?  Who is ready to share? Conceptual  Indicator / variable definition is key. “a piece of cake”  Generic concepts are a challenge, also marketing-wise
  17. 17. Ordex: Summary Generic, cost efficient platform for PM&R Fast (faceted) search and information discovery Multi-dimensional data-entry, dynamic dataforms Flexible report generator Content available as open data for maps, graphs , apps Implemented in Rwanda, Burundi & DRC Enough challenges to keep us busy .. any help appreciated
