Data driven donations
Many not-for-profits strive to be data driven, but lack the resources to implement and drive these programs. Cloudera Cares is committed to helping bridge these gaps for not-for-profits, from both a data and people standpoint. In 2014, Cloudera Cares partnered with DataKind, to help enable not-for-profits to drive their own data strategies and implementations of advanced analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
Cloudera Cares continued the data-driven theme with Thorn, who built their Spotlight tool on Cloudera software. In 2016, Thorn’s Impact Report noted that 6,000-plus sexual trafficking victims were identified, of which 2,000-plus were children, through the use of Spotlight. Cloudera Cares and Thorn expanded the partnership in 2016 to include Cloudera’s Enterprise Data Hub and professional services hours.
Our most recent joint partnership, announced in 2017, is with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and Intel. We are running a hackathon series with the quest to bring children home.
