With the availability and development of new technologic tools to be used by humanitarian professionals, processes have become faster and more efficient. However, due to the particular conditions of situations, different tools are meant to respond to very specific needs (WASH, nutrition and food security…), leaving a complex cluster of different solutions and methods. Not being able to ignore the necessity of specialised tools that correspond to the objectives and purposes of operations, we can ask ourselves if methods to standardize actions would be more cost-effective. As we have seen with mobile data collection (MDC), simpler processes to collect data have opened the way to more integrated and user-friendly analysis tools. Are these tools already powerful enough to cover the various needs of humanitarian specialists?
