DevInfo 6.0 is a powerful new version of DevInfo database technology. It delivers significant enhancements for easy access to information on human development. The system has been developed under UN partnership and is distributed royalty-free to all end users. Now national statistics offices, UN agencies, donors, NGOs and civil society can all prepare reports and presentations using this common database platform.
The DevInfo system has been endorsed by the UN Development Group and is being used in many countries to help track the Millennium Development Goals and other national priorities. DevInfo 6.0 has evolved from a decade of innovations in database systems which support informed decision making and which promote the use of data to advocate for human development. The system organizes data by indicators, time periods, geographic areas and sources with extensive metadata based on international standards.
The new functional requirements of DevInfo 6.0 are in response to the experience and insights of thousands of DevInfo users around the world. These requests for enhancements and new features were reviewed and formalized by the DevInfo Field Reference Group with participation from 10 UN agencies.
