Global Payment Systems Survey


  • Client: The World Bank
  • Date: August 2018 - Ongoing
  • Tags: Survey Analytics, Economic Development, Institution Building, Payments, Finance

We provide data-visualization technology and data lifecycle advisory services to support the World Bank’s financial inclusion mission. Specifically, we created a fully online streamlined survey process for hundreds of metrics from 140+ central banks that capture a snapshot of the status of payment systems, and elevated analytics and reporting capabilities across regions and subjects with a custom-built one-stop analytics platform and custom designed charts for print and publication. Our platform offers quick, visual, interactive, thematic analysis features for the GPSS team, and bespoke charts for public consumption and presentations. Our approach improves speed and efficiency of the GPSS workflow, facilitates collecting more data from more countries, and enables new perspectives, deeper analysis, and improved visualizations for communicating the results.

Mapping and Analysis of Prevention and Deradicalization Projects Dealing with Extremist Radicalization

  • Client: Institute for Interdisciplinary Conflict and Violence Research (IKG)
  • Date: April 2018 - Ongoing
  • Site: www.mapex-projekt.de

We applied our data-visualization technology to develop a dynamic, analytically powerful and customized data visualization platform to support the Institute for Interdisciplinary Conflict and Violence Research (IKG) and its institutional partners to map out, evaluate, and analyze over 1000 local initiatives focusing on prevention, de-radicalization, and disengagement from extremist groups and ideology taking place across Germany. Using Keshif, IKG and institutional partners can easily and intuitively navigate across and analyze multiple local initiatives, identify potential blindspot regions that require interventions and re-allocation of resources, and use this information to assess the outreach of initiatives on the ground.

Field Monitoring Survey for Humanitarian Operations in South Sudan


  • Client: UNICEF in South Sudan
