The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Ona is a simple, yet powerful data collection, management and analysis platform that makes it easy for everyone-from individuals to large, multi-national NGOs-to collect, manage, and make sense of their digital data. Ona is trusted by thousands of organizations worldwide for their mission critical work. Currently, it's being used by the Government of Nepal to a 1M building damage assessment and is helping power DFID's humanitarian response in Somalia.

- Advanced mapping - how to set custom map colors appearances in your forms, add custom basemaps and collect data linked to OSM in Ona.
