The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Limited Capacity filling up

The data management burden of large OVC programs is enormous. Services for OVC are need based, in the face of limited resources, services are provided first to children most in need. In large programs, paper based tools alone pose a challenge for service prioritization and client level monitoring.
The NOMIS is a web application design, using Java technology, it is easy setup and very user-friendly. It has in-built data validation rules to minimize data entry errors and enhance data quality. It generates custom reports, service statistics, client lists and a dashboard of selected indicators. It exports data to MS excel and other related tools for further analysis. CRS Nigeria's SMILE Project adapted and enhanced NOMIS in order to respond to her data collation, analysis and reporting needs.
SMILE has utilized NOMIS as an ICT4D solution to enhance data use and evidence based programming on a large scale OVC program that integrates data from approximately 50-plus partners. NOMIS facilitates data entry and analysis that is able to present key OVC programming indicators of vulnerability categories, enrollment and service delivery, all with disaggregation capabilities of age and sex. It captures client level data, and then aggregates at CSO, LGA, State and national levels. In addition, NOMIS supports case management and guide monitoring of CSO activities.
Experience with the NOMIS has demonstrated that it is possible to utilize electronic records to capture store and manage program data in OVC programs in a resource limited setting.
The adoption of the National OVC Management Information System (NOMIS) as the National OVC database by the FMWASD represents a giant step towards revolutionizing OVC programming in Nigeria and creating a solid MIS.
