- Technology: Sharing tools for data mining, real-time analytics and data visualization, or sharing storage and computing capabilities
- Expertise: Making engineers, data scientists or researchers available to collaborate on specific projects or events that support the UN, public sector, and international development organisations

As Global Pulse is a multi-disciplinary initiative with a broad network of supporters and stakeholders, to maximize impact and avoid duplication of efforts, Global Pulse has two advisory mechanisms. Global Pulse has established a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) comprised of more than 15 UN agency representatives to ensure that its work adds value to ongoing UN agency monitoring efforts. The TAG meets at strategic moments to advise the Global Pulse Team on priorities and implementation.
To ensure that the Global Pulse initiative closely and transparently engages with Member States, a Friends of Global Pulse Group has been established in New York. Members include representatives from the following countries: Australia, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, Indonesia, Lithuania, Malawi, Mexico, Senegal, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Uganda and the United Kingdom.
