Collaboration with CommunityCloud: The Value of Time



On Wednesday, February 15th from 11:30AM to 12:45PM ET, we will present a free webinar:


Collaboration with CommunityCloud:

The Value of Time


Simplicity in technology may seem counter-intuitive. Many of the popular collaboration platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Slack, etc.) are fueled by our commitment to spend lots of time using lots of widgets to manage relationships and share information. We struggle to keep up with the selected solution(s), and Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) compels us to move from page to page to page in hopes of finding what we need, when we need it.


Damir Simunic and his colleagues at CommunityCloud have given careful consideration to the way NGOs use collaborative tools, particularly in relationship to the time it takes. They focus on the surprising effectiveness and simplicity of some common technologies that have been around for decades, and evaluate some modern technologies (natural language processing, machine learning, deep neural networks, real time translation and artificial intelligence). The question they ask is “Can these solutions be used in a simple, seamless way to empower nonprofits and NGOs around the world to save time?


Join Damir Simunic & Joe Canda from WA Research in Switzerland and some of their NGO clients as they discuss CommunityCloud’s unique solution to foster collaboration and knowledge sharing, currently in use by organizations like USAID, WHO, DFID, John Snow, and Management Sciences for Health.



Damir Simunic is a founder and CTO of WA Research, the company behind Community Cloud. He believes that computers exist to save us from doing boring things, and has spent 30 years building software products that do exactly that.

Joe Canda is an American/Swiss national. He has nearly 30 years’ experience in the IT industry ranging from systems engineering to managing world-wide IT teams in multi-national corporations. He is now the Managing Director of WA Research.

Craig Duncan is the Head of the Information Management Unit at The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR)
