Two weeks ago, the Swiss Consulate in San Francisco hosted a series of workshops called "Everyone a Humanitarian." As part of that effort, a breakout session was hosted by Malcolm Johnstone, an information specialist who worked with UNHCR, just back from Iraq. He reported the need for one data platform that interfaces and analyzes data from many sources. Right now, data is collected and processed through Skype, google forms, and a call center taking upwards of 250 calls a day from all over the country. There has to be a better way.
