Achievements

  • Developed Ghana’s first GNU/Linux Operating System called Nyansapo Operating System Solutions (NOSS). The Educational version of NOSS called EduNOSS has been endorsed by the UN Secretary-General’s Roadmap for Digital Cooperation to offer critical support to countries in the West Africa sub-Region to meet SDG 4: Quality Education by 2030.

  • The Centre has collaborated with Donors and Development Partner in providing digital skills to Ghanaians to support the development of the Digital Economy in Ghana and to promote digital inclusion, especially among marginalised groups and communities.

  • Trained 40,000+ people in Ghana, the West African Sub-region and Africa as a whole in various programmes and training interventions in areas of Information and Communication Technology. Several of our graduates are in influential positions in the Information Technology departments and organisations in Africa and beyond.

  • Ghana’s Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises(MSME) sector has benefited from an information-sharing platform to help MSME’s acquire and share important business-related information. The platform also known as the digital gateway was designed and developedby AITI-KACE with support from UNDP to help MSMEs share and access real-time information that will enable appropriate action for decision makers, MSMEs owners/leaders, and academia. The digital gateway has three main modules namely Info hub, Forum and Market Place. As a result of the digital gateway, MSMEs can now have access to relevant business, tax, financial, training and other information to improve their business operations. With this new platform, MSMEs can have business discussions and post issues they experience in the course of their trading activities. Service providers across Ghana also can advertise their services to the registered users of the system.
