Subject: [ODK Community] Discussion Series: Using ODK as a data source
for DHIS2 and Salesforce
To: "" <>

Hi Everyone,

My name is Taylor Downs, and I've been a big ODK "fanboy" since I
first came across it working for an HIV-prevention organization in
South Africa about five years ago. In 2010 I co-founded a consulting
company (Vera Solutions) that has since designed and implemented data
systems for more than 160 social impact organizations around the
world. As more and more of these implementations required
full-featured cloud-based backends AND inexpensive, easy-to-use,
offline-capable mobile tools we found ourselves needing to mix and
match technologies. ODK became our mobile data-capture workhorse, and our backend of choice.

The flexibility of ODK (and xForms) makes it powerful, but also
difficult to integrate—at times it feels like we're trying to hit a
moving target. Our clients demand complex forms, and the ability to
change those forms often as their programs evolve. Hard-coding
integrations for each project was too costly and time-consuming, so we
set out to develop an open-source integration platform that could be
used to quickly and easily connect "source" ODK submission data
(actually, any JSON data—provided you have prior knowledge of the
schema) to, DHIS2, and other "destination" systems.
