In collaboration the Microsoft Tech for Social Impact team and Adatis have built a centralised Data Analytics and AI platform termed the Nonprofit Data Warehouse Quickstart (NDWQ), focussed on the non-profit sector that addresses the data challenges faced by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO’s).
The NDWQ solution has been designed to be aligned to an industry standard framework based on Microsoft Azure and Power BI, and deliver a complimentary playbook to support the rollout to multiple organisations with similar data requirements.
As part of this initiative Microsoft has built two scenarios:
Standard Quickstart – Cloud Data Warehouse that demonstrates the data movement pipeline from source through to insight.
Quickstart with CDM – Enhancing the Standard Quickstart scenario to include a data movement pipeline that utilises the Common Data Model (CDM).
In both cases, the scenarios are deployable from GitHub and include comprehensive documentation that, amongst other factors, outline how customers can extend and operate the solution and move towards production.
