Welcome to iCOMMS at the University of Cape Town

iCOMMS, Information for Community Services is a research team, formed in 2011, within the Department of Information Systems at The University of Cape Town

The focus of the team is to understand the use of information systems in the context of planning and delivering services in under-resourced environments. Mobile technologies and ICT4D applications have created an opportunity to improve the ways in which data is collected, information is distributed and workflows are improved in order to increase efficient decision making.

The research contribution lies in developing models for context-based information system design and development with a focus on supporting service delivery and local governance.
