Understand and test-drive the possibilities of big data
One of the challenges the Municipality of Almere faces, is how to provide her citizens with integrated social support, youth care and social benefits, meanwhile stimulating community support and reducing costs. Administration and council need information on the implementation, effects, and opportunities of this transition. At the same time, our Research and Statistics team faces challenges of diminishing survey response and increased perceived administrative burden for implementing agents, forcing us to rethink traditional monitoring and evaluation tools.
Xomnia’s Big Data Fundamentals has helped us to understand and test-drive the possibilities of big data for the Municipality of Almere. During an intensive three days course, we learned in both theory and practice how to apply big data in the social domain.
