DDP is an open-source data pipeline platform to tackle data ingestion, storage and transformation that can be used by NGOs to drive actionable insights

Automated data pipeline platform for NGOs

This platform came about from our experience of working with multiple organizations in the Indian NGO ecosystem where we saw challenges in disjointed data sources. It was influenced by how we can work with NGOs to use data in a “smart” manner to provide better, deeper and more meaningful insights for greater impact.

DDP platform is composed of open source software elements to tackle data ingestion, storage, transformation and visualisation. It mirrors a modern data stack found in the private sector, while specialising in integration tools and is tailored to the needs and goals of the development sector. 

DDP leverages the power of data to optimise processes and program operations. The platform replicates data from multiple existing tools used by the social impact space organisations (like CommCare, SurveyCTO, Glific, Avni, Google Sheets) as part of an open source data integration pipeline that has high visibility of issues and maximum uptime. Using top of the line open source packages for transformations and visualisations, DDP aims to satisfy the analysis and visualisation needs across most NGOs. 

We are currently in beta mode piloting with a few non-profit  organisations.

  • Goalkeep at the Tech4Dev Sprint Jan 2023

    How do we build data culture within nonprofits, and what does that even mean?  … is a question we have been obsessing over at Goalkeep this past year. We’ve figured that one key element of data culture is the ability to put data into the hands of individuals and teams with minimal repetitive effort. But…
