REPORT: Investing in Impact Infrastructure

A Landscape Analysis by the Technology Affinity Group

This landscape analysis is an attempt to cut through the clutter around impact for IT leaders and their executive teams.

Too often, IT leaders are stymied by discussions on “impact,” as such discourse can be too wide-ranging for translation into operational strategy. Other times, technology leaders will charge nobly forward in stewarding impact data standards only to find such initiatives wither from lack of adoption. This body of research and analysis attempts to find a middle-ground where leaders can assess their current state against the backdrop of existing efforts in the sector and chart a path forward.

Now is a crucial period for philanthropy to address pragmatic questions regarding what it means to measure and understand impact.
