Metrics All the Rage: PDMS with Clinton, NYTimes, BizWeek

By Acumen on September 26, 2008

We’ve previously mentioned our Portfolio Database Management System (PDMS), the tool we are developing (with the help of many) to aggregate and evaluate data about social enterprises. Yesterday was a big day for PDMS: the social metrics platform was announced yesterday at the Clinton Global Initiative, and articles about it appeared in both BusinessWeek and The New York Times.

Also announced at the Clinton Global Initiative was the launch of the ANDE network, which Brian blogged about here. The PDMS is currently being tested by a number of beta users, and we anticipate launching officially at the beginning of 2009. We’d love to launch with a name better than the bland PDMS acronym — any suggestions?
