In the same year we introduced a database management system built on Knack  by our own team, called the Evidence and Impact Hub (EiH). With our programme teams in 32 countries as primary data entrants, EiH tracks the delivery and results of our programmes and fulfils different reporting and insight functions. This basically custom-built web app has gone through a range of iterations in line with user feedback, a process which continues to this date as more business processes are moved onto the tool and we discover new needs for structuring our data to generate insight. Our new Data and Insight Officer will play a key part in translating our innovative approaches into embedded use of data and insight in all programme decision-making processes.
