Regarding Cancer’s objective was to improve its database infrastructure to more adequately address core reporting functionality required for their organizational objectives. The organization was utilizing a nonprofit cloud service with a database that had a high cost and did not offer the flexibility required for their analysis and reporting needs. Regarding Cancer engaged with Valkyrie to find a more efficient system for their matchmaking process which is vital to the organization’s mission.
Valkyrie assessed the state of Regarding Cancer’s data ingestion, database schemas and common access patterns. Valkyrie also conducted research on alternative platforms to find a solution that would more adequately address the organization’s volunteer matching and report generation requirements.
Valkyrie was able to recommend an alternative database to Regarding Cancer that brings its annual cost from $3,000 per year to under $400 per year. Valkyrie provided Regarding Cancer employees with training sessions for the new platform and tools to use that will help to improve its matchmaking and reporting processes.
