Humanitarian Networks and Partnerships Weeks
HNPW 2024 (29 April - 10 May 2024)

Session title: Empowering humanitarian analysts with SOPHIA – Solutions Platform for Humanitarian Information Analysis
Organizer(s): ACAPS
9 May 24 14:00-15:00   (Salle 2)

Since early 2023, ACAPS is working on the development of a new Software as a Service (SaaS) product. Solutions Platform for Humanitarian Information Analysis (SOPHIA in short) is a suite of software modules designed to help humanitarians navigate the complexities of daily data collection.

With SOPHIA, ACAPS brings together the organisation’s many years of data collection experience and processes, materialising them into a standalone product. Through partnership with international software development company, SOPHIA incorporates design ideas and functionality choices that are successfully implemented in fintech, AI healthcare, education, and media tech sectors.

This session will take you through the journey we embarked on when we started working on SOPHIA. We will briefly talk about:

  • the product discovery and its initial design driven by the daily challenges our analysts face,
  • SOPHIA’s impact and cultural change of data collection at ACAPS,
  • our vision of SOPHIA roadmap for 2024–2025.

While the session primarily targets humanitarian information analysts from INGOs and NGOs, we would love for all HNPW participants to be part of our journey and share their feedback.

Looking forward seeing you at the HNPW SOPHIA session,

The ACAPS-SOPHIA development team
