Analytics and Business Intelligence
"Data are the lifeblood of decision-making and the raw material for accountability."
Report of the Secretary-General’s Independent Expert Advisory Group on a Data Revolution for Sustainable Development.
Innovative technologies and data are critical to overcoming the challenges we face, not only within the United Nations but throughout the world. Data is being generated at ever faster speeds and from countless sources. The public, Member States and UN personnel struggle, not only to find and access this information, but to benefit from it in meaningful ways.
Unite Analytics provides a solution: easy access to reliable real-time information and analysis. It is a prime example of the UN's commitment to foster a more data-driven culture, one that strives for effectiveness at the global, regional, and country levels.
Developed by the Department of Management's Office of Information and Communications Technology (OICT), this comprehensive service provides key insights and facilitates decision-making across the UN's mandates. The solutions offered support policy formulation in a wide range of areas, such as land, climate, energy and electrification, as well as gender equality. In addition, Unite Analytics applications reinforce reporting and analysis of UN entities and their stakeholders, by bringing together both substantive and operational performance indicators in clear and concise ways.
Unite Analytics also offers business intelligence (BI) solutions for senior management. Decision-makers gain new insights into the Organization’s internal operations, supporting improved efficiencies and accountability. Managers can explore and exploit key indicators in areas such as finance, human resources, performance, and support services.
From ensuring clearer transparency within the Organization to facilitating achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, data and analytics are a critical catalyst for the success of the United Nations and its stakeholders.
