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.

Mercy Corps
Software Developer/Business Analyst
Portland, OR & Nairobi, Kenya
I'm a software developer and systems architect and business analyst for Mercy Corps since 2011, previously working in the same capacity for regional, state and federal government agencies in the United States as well as small to large business and corporations like Hewlett-Packard and Nike since 1997 . I have spent the last 2 years working on a new open source data management platform for Mercy Corps for field based programs and M&E. I'm an Open Source software advocate and supporter of the adoption of open data principles of transparency and sharing in non-profit and government agencies. TolaData and Open Build are my two primary focuses, especially where they intersect with both data security and transparency as well as STEM based education initiatives and open science and open hardware based learning.
