Hi John and Faith,
You do not necessarily need a developer to get DHIS2 setup. You can download the program your self, and we have attempted to create comprehensive documentation to allow you to setup the system your self. Perhaps the easiest way at the moment to create your own instance is with the dhis2-docker project here (https://github.com/pgracio/dhis2-docker) .
In many cases, it may be useful to engage of on the members of our experts community (https://www.dhis2.org/expert-community) to assist you with your implementation, but it is by no means a requirement. Generally, not “anyone” can do it, but it helps if you have a person who knows SQL and are comfortable working with data formats like JSON and XML. Knowing a scripting language like Python or NodeJS may be required for more complex setups.
To answer your question about a demo that does not reset at night, the answer is no, not that I know of. In general, it would be better that you establish such a system yourself.
Generally, inquiries should be directed to our users list
which is also searchable here
Hope this helps to get you started and feel free to become a part of the community.

Thanks John. We are very interested in using DHIS2 to track the impact of our existing enterprise in Haiti as well as future enterprises.
We have developed the metrics that we are interested in tracking, but have had a difficult time finding a program that allows us to
- collect data via sms, web and app,
- create relationships between data tables, and
- analyze and visualize that data on a dashboard.
DHIS2 appears to offer all three capabilities. I’ve taken a look at the installation instructions on github, do you also have a simple guide for DHIS2 setup?

The organization I work for is very interested in using DHIS 2 and we had a few questions.
We would like to know what exactly we need to set up the platform.
If we need a developer to implement the platform or if anyone can do it?
And we would like to know if there is a demo site that we can work on that doesn’t refresh every day?
