Proven ICT Solutions
Nikia specializes in providing proven world-class integrated ICT solutions with in-country support to deliver a full range of customized services to support nation-wide education programs at scale. Our approach is grounded in an understanding of the realities of rural & peri-urban school settings & the challenges of delivering and supporting information and communications technologies (ICT) in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Best Practices At Scale
We apply best practices from world-class Global ICT solutions providers, software & application providers, & work directly with over two hundred regional ICT partners to install, implement, & provide long-term locally sourced support for our integrated solutions. This approach has the added benefit of promoting immediate & long-term local job creation, staff development, & revenue opportunities for in-country ICT & educational content partners. Through our local partners, we are able to effectively address challenges ranging from providing basic power & security to providing custom educational content & supporting educational assessments at scale.
Nikia utilizes a holistic, National Leadership supported approach, with comprehensive program management methodologies & extensive partnership ecosystems. We start with an in-country agile discovery & needs assessment process customized to a specific nation’s Education, ICT, & Economic Development Goals. Once a design framework and set of solutions are identified, we work across our ecosystem of partners to advance & assess pilot implementations to ensure the success of subsequent large-scale deployments. We work closely with national ministries & local stakeholders to design, deploy, & support school-based infrastructures for virtualization, application delivery, digital content, communication, data services, security, and power.
Human Centered Design
Our design methodology is rooted in human centered design to ensure high quality & locally supported deployment that addresses national & local educational needs. In this way, we design & deliver smart technology solutions that meet the specific needs of the organizations & communities in some of the most challenging environments in the developing world.
