Program Goals and Status for FY18/19[edit]

  • Goal Owner: Nuria Ruiz
  • Program Goals for FY18/19: We will maintain and increase public access to past, present and real time data for Wikimedia projects. We will provide the infrastructure to measure the impact and reach of projects and features for editors, communities and WMF.
  • Annual Plan: TEC14: Smart Tools for Better Data
    • Primary Goal is Knowledge as a Service: Evolve our systems and structures
    • Tech Goal: Supporting our Community of contributors
