The importance of data standards and exchanges has been thrown around a lot lately, often referred to as the difference between “Big Data” and using data. So, what does all this actually mean? And how can it help you? This webinar will help demystify the talk and reveal some concrete ways that you can contribute to – and benefit from – this new level of detailed information.
Just a few of the things you can expect are:
- Information on exporting important grants data to share with the philanthropy sector via the Foundation Center
- Understand how the data you provide will be involved in research, knowledge tools, and mapping projects aimed to help the sector
- Information about how the data provided by the Foundation Center back to you will allow you to be more strategic, collaborative, and have the greatest impact with your resources
- And, of course, you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have. We hope you’ll join Foundant and the Foundation Center for this unique informational webinar. As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments – we’re here to help!
For more information about “Big Data,” and why it’s important that we all work together to keep it accurate and up-to-date, read The Next Big Thing – a blog post by Foundant President, Daren Nordhagen.
