JICA Uganda makes partnership visit to IICS Technologies

The Japan International Corporation Agency, in Uganda has made a familiarization tour of the IICS Technologies offices in Makindye, making good on their promise, to the IICS Tech team in October. The visit follows a stakeholder engagement meeting held with part of IICS Technologies’ management team, last month at JICA offices, along Yusuf Lule road in Kampala.

IICS Technologies boasts of twelve years’ experience in building IT solutions for the public and private sector. The firm over the years has scouted, groomed and nurtured youthful software developers into cutting-edge, highly resourceful talents that match global standards. Prestigious global organizations like Google and Microsoft have been beneficiaries of coders who have passed through the rigors of IICs technologies. Malaysia, India, Italy and Kigali are other countries in which our alumni have been absorbed.

While, banks, IT companies, insurance corporations and government institutions have also benefited from IICS’ trainings and incubation on the local scene.  

JICA Uganda seeks to make contributions in the health sector and Road infrastructure as well as ICT which aligns with the core mandate of IICS Technologies. According to Mr Uchiyana Takayuki, JICA country representative, the institution is currently in partnership with the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance, to upscale IT skilling and also explore areas that can strengthen human resource capacity building in the ICT sector.

He further commended the effort made by IICS Technologies in contributing toward the quality of software developers in Uganda. “The very fact that a number of your alumni are well placed in global organizations proves the quality of human resource that passes through your organization”, he commented.

In 2012, Governments of Uganda and Canada voted IICS Technologies, in recognition as the best innovator in the public sector. The Integrated Hospital Management Information System (iHMIS), a system the organization was credited to have developed, is currently deployed in all (government) regional referral hospitals and some general hospitals. It has also gained prominence in the private sector.  Important to note is that IICS Technologies, is contracted by government to roll out iHMIS to public hospitals country wide.

IICS Technologies in a presentation, reiterated its aspirations “to support communities with simplified, result-oriented, software solutions that enhance productivity and decision support.” Dr. Silver Kiyimba, the MD, reiterated the Organization’s practice to prefer rooting for fresh University graduates to join it’s work force. This he said, enables the company to skill them with adroit software development principles that befit even the global market. However, the ideal plan is to extend this effort to early secondary; students with interest in Mathematics would be identified, nurtured and groomed through specialized programs that would make them exceptionally standout and pursue carreers in Software Engineering.
