Tell your story

We work with nonprofits to tell their story through data and technology.

Our story

Hikaya, which means story in Arabic works with nonprofits to introduce a set of integrated tools that re-engineer how data are used within these organizations.

By building open source solutions on common data standards, we help leading nonprofits worldwide improve their delivery of goods and services to those most in need while making reporting to funders more transparent.

Data Ecosystem

Data Ecosystem

We believe the way to transform into a digital organization is through utilizing a set of integrated tools that promote sharing and consistency across the organization.

Data Standardization

Data Standardization

By investing in upfront system design, we build tools and processes that help standardize data and keep it up-to-date. This helps us reap the benefits of our systems by making it easier to roll up data and answer common questions like “Where do we work”, “Who do we work with?”, and “What did we achieve?”

Data Collection

Data Collection

Digitizing the way we collect and process data has never been easier with access to affordable, rugged technology to operate in low connectivity settings. We can eliminate manual entry and data cleaning steps in record time while improving the flow of data through real-time monitoring.

Data Storage

Data Storage

By integrating data in a centralized and consistent manner, we can reduce duplication and encourage organizations to access more of their data for in depth analysis.

Data Visualization

Data Visualization

Once data starts to work its way through our tools, it is coupled with automated and self-service reports and dashboards that give greater insight into all levels of the organization. By utilizing modern business intelligence and easy-to-use visualization tools, organizations can access relevant and timely information for informed decision making.

Commitment to Open Source

Dots

Dots

Connect and visualize your data from anywhere

Built using open source tools like Apache Airflow and Metabase, we’re architecting a common data pipeline for nonprofits to manage their unstructured datasets.

Dots helps import datasets from third-party data collection tools while hosting a series of pre-built connectors that let organizations integrate their ERP systems. The application provides a workspace to perform cleaning and join operations alongside scheduling imports and exports between systems.

Standard form designer that automates KPI tracking

We are building a progressive web application that helps design, offline data collection forms that are standardized and are immediately linked to key performance indicators so that nonprofits can easily automate their reporting.

This application is based on a micro-service architecture for high performance, scalability, and availability using Angular 8 and Python / Django.
