28 September 2017 Big data, big deal? By Maaike Platenburg, Freddy Bob-Jones and Friso Wiegman Benefits and challenges associated with Big Data for results measurements In our last blog, we explored the use of big data for monitoring and evaluation (M&E) purposes in international development. We concluded that big data can provide us with great insights into aid effectiveness; it can show whether development projects have been successful and facilitate a more adaptive process toward designing programmes that deliver better outcomes for disadvantaged people. However, current projects are still in the pilot phase and much still remains to mainstream the use of these techniques. With this blog we would like to build on our first blog by exploring the potential benefits and practical challenges associated with applying big data.
