DHT: Data Harmonisation Tool for IATI

At ZZ we’ve been looking at how to integrate available data services in the IATI realm and how they benefit a usecase we are working on for IOM.

The basics:

For this to happen we created a service that we named DHT (Data Harmonisation Tool). DHT has integrated CoVE and OIPA (+ some custom scripting) into an automated workflow:

  • Clean CSV (custom scripting)
  • Enabling a CSV template as provided by CoVe
  • To be processed by CoVE
  • Export IATI XML by CoVE
  • Auto-import that IATM XML by OIPA
  • Push converted data to a Transparency Portal
  • Provide URI with IATI.XML for The Registry

DHT nows allow all of this to be automated without intervention and I have included an overview of that flow. It took us 2 days to get this up and running.

This is not a public facing service a such and will not become FTTB.

Just wanted to share this with you.
