Using Crowd-Sourced Technology for Social Good

Crowd-sourcing is deemed an effective and useful tool to preserve and protect the earth’s species. As proof, the International Barcode of Life (iBOL) summons citizens around the world to collect samples to assist universities, natural history museums and research institutes.

iBOL is hosting its database on HANA, ​technology company ​SAP’s enterprise platform. This move enables researchers and citizen scientists to analyze data quickly, obtain ideas as to how species and climate change impact the environment. ​Currently, SAP is developing ​an app ​with the International Barcode of Life​ that will allow​ the public to distinguish species in an instant.
