Our services in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) are designed to maximize our client’s use of knowledge to increase their organizational performance. For organizational success, knowledge as a form of capital must be exchangeable among persons and must be able to grow. ICT can promote organizational learning, leading to further knowledge creation.
The practices used by organizations in knowledge management – identification creation, representation, and distribution of knowledge – are extremely important for its reuse, awareness, and learning across the organization.
DevSpaces ICT services are designed to assist our clients in meeting their organizational objectives and needs and are intended to lead in the achievement of specific outcomes, such as shared intelligence, improved performance, competitive advantage, or higher levels of innovation.
With ICT services ENSURE will facilitate the documentation of organizational memory and experiences (of individuals and the organization) into one location so that this knowledge may be efficiently used and capitalized upon for the benefit of all the organization and future use.
To achieve this, an efficient and accessible ICT system that supports individuals and the organization in its activities will be designed. The end goal of our ICT services is to allow you to be a “Learning organization with an environment that ensures its sustainability and continuous improvement of performance”.

Monitoring and Evaluation
We believe in the intrinsic value of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) from start to finish of any project or program, and was founded in response to the found gap in the supply of firms and individuals who can ensure professional and proper M&E in the Egyptian market.
For many years monitoring and evaluation was considered to be part of the end stage of the project, and, at best was implemented in the final stages. M&E was considered to be a last-step action to measure the end results of the project.
TODAY, the conceptualization of M&E has completely changed. M&E is now an essential part of project design, planning, budgeting and implementation. This trend deepens the responsibilities and workload of M&E professionals making management of the processes and data much more difficult and complex.
INTEGRATION of information and communications technology into the process of M&E at all phases of project development helps project staff, and specifically M&E people, to carry out their responsibilities in an easier and more effective way. Web-based applications, for example, facilitate data collection, analysis and information dissemination especially in remote locations. Database Management Systems can be used effectively in data storing, retrieving, processing and updating. All these technologies together can make a difference to the speed, effectiveness, cost and accuracy of results.
M&E Services include:
- Design and developing monitoring systems, tailored to the client’s project purpose, goal, and objectives.
- Developing logic models and M&E strategies, plan and reporting systems.
- Ongoing support to implement the tailor-made monitoring systems
- M&E Training for the project’s team and staff in techniques, new developments, and methodologies.
- Conducting monitoring, baseline assessments, ongoing M&E, mid-term assessment, final assessment – at all phases of the client’s project.
- Developing web-based M&E tools to collect, store and analyze qualitative and quantitative data.

Research is complementary to M&E and is an invaluable aspect of any development intervention. Research provides the in-depth understanding of the people, the locality, the culture, the history and socioeconomic and political contexts in which development interventions take place.
For M&E research is a mean to assess the project’s activities and the context in which they are taking place, to assess the initial conditions and to be able to compare them during and following a project. Research is critical to understanding how to affect change and how it is being affected by interventions and initiatives for development.
For this reason, we offer research services to complement both your research needs and your M&E process. DevSpaces believes that research is the foundation for knowledge generation, strategy development and intervention implementation.

Quality Assurance Systems
Quality is critical factor for success in all business and development sectors. One simple definition of quality is "a program for the systematic monitoring and evaluation of the various aspects of a project, service, or facility to ensure that standards of quality are being met".
In providing products and services, quality assurance is any systematic process of checking to see whether a product or service being developed is meeting specified requirements and positively respond to customer expectations. Quality Assurance principles apply in all aspects of business starting from the conceptualization of product or service till end user receives this product or service. In business sectors (manufacturing, service, IT, etc.) the international Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards are usually followed and respected. ISO certification became one of the requirements for export and trading for example.
One of areas that focuses on quality standards now is the education sector. All institutions are required to develop and deploy a quality system that comply with the standards of the National Authority for Quality Assurance and Accreditation (NAQAA).
DevSpaces through a team of highly qualified experts in diversified fields of business (food, chemicals, textile, shipping, transportation, etc.) provides unique service in quality systems development and deployment. We assist our customer to start and build their own QMS according to ISO and other international standards.
