From the ground up, Dedoose was always designed to support researchers, evaluators, and their teams looking to incorporated qualitative and mixed methods approaches in their working with text, audio, video, images, and survey and test data. We recognized from our own work and what we learned from others that many people needed multiple software programs to accomplish the things they were trying to do in their work. When you look to move beyond traditional software and whatever other tools were out there, you crave solutions that increase efficiency. And, when you do your work with others an entirely new set of challenges exist. Enter Dedoose, the natively collaborative environment that is ready to support your:
Living in the ‘cloud’ gives Dedoose endless advantages over traditional software, including:
Tools are only useful when they are accessible and sensible. We’re active academic researchers and evaluators, so we know, as well as anyone, what most people are doing with their qualitative and mixed methods technology. Yeah, there are times you will need complex filtering and other features and we’ve got them dialed into Dedoose so they are there when appropriate. BUT, what most people are doing most of the time should be straightforward and many people who work on teams the basics of building a project are the only thing they will be doing. This simple idea has never escaped us and so we have laser focus on making sure the learning curve is as shallow as possible. Yes, we are ‘shallow,’ so you can get yourself and your team up-to-speed as fast as possible.
Dedoose delivers a full set of interactive charts, tables, and plots to:
Again, it’s all about mixed methods, so, yes, Dedoose is ready for you to import all types of media into a project for qualitative and quantitative data integration and analysis including:
Dedoose allows full importing and full exporting of all your data. Unlike some, we will never try to lock you into Dedoose. Also, beyond the survey importing wizard described in the spreadsheet media import, Dedoose is ready to receive your projects who may have lived in NVivo, Atlas.ti, MaxQDA, Saturate, HyperResearch, Quirkos, and others. Just check into our support materials or with our support team and we’ll be delighted to see you loving your data in the Dedoose environment and all AT NO COST.
Dedoose has historically remained at the cutting edge of web-based technologies. The possibilities for what takes place in the cloud are expanding rapidly and our development team tracks this growth closely so we can be sure to bring you the best of everything. We like to push boundaries and its awesome to see how fast the boundaries are moving. As they do, we are able to evolve and build in new features and functionality along with our constant efforts to assure maximum performance.
Yes, of course, we work in universities too, so fully appreciate the need for top rate data security and privacy protection. If we didn’t do this well no one could use Dedoose. You can learn all about the details in our terms of service, but all you need to do is consider our use of Hyper Text Transfer Protocol SECURE (HTTPS)—like when online banking, Transport Layer Security (TLS), customizable Dedoose project-specific encryption, FedRAMP Moderate, AWS GovCloud, Private Deployments, HIPAA compliance, SAML / OAuth2 support for enterprise clients, and more.
It is in our DNA to be extremely supportive. We’re educators, right? Yes, of course we want people to use Dedoose, but we also want them to use it well! This all really matters to us because if people use Dedoose well, their work will have high quality, they’ll be happy, their work will have positive impacts and, if they are happy with Dedoose, the value they offer in sharing their Dedoose stories is gold to us. How do we deliver?
