Matthew Parker - Director, Lamplight Database Systems

About you:

I am the founder of Lamplight Database Systems Limited. We supply a monitoring and case management system to the voluntary sector, and are committed to helping voluntary organisations and non-profits capture and demonstrate their impact.

Where are you based?

London, UK

Where do you work?

Across the UK

What policy areas do you usually work in?

We are looking at open data and working on more innovative and user-friendly ways of visualising and capturing data.

What are you working on at the moment?

We are setting up baseline indicators of a community and then measuring changes over time with periodic review of indicators. For example, measuring the health indicators in a defined area (in a “food desert”) then coming back to those indicators to see if they’ve improved after a fresh food retailer comes online in the area.

Is there anything you would like to share, discuss, or work with other SIAA members on?

Open data, data sharing, and data standards.
