GDMS in partnership with the Department of Digital Technology (DDT) of the Lao Ministry of Technologies and Communications (MTC) have been selected by UNICEF to host the Lao PDR Education and Sports Management Information System (LESMIS) platform.
This GIS-based data visualization and aggregation platform aims to improve data quality, ensure easy access and increase the use of data for monitoring and planning by schools/institutions and communities, districts, provinces, MoES, and development partners.
The LESMIS platform will also support the monitoring of progress under the 9th Education and Sports Development Plan (ESSDP) 2021-25 by extracting key data from the different MoES MIS, using data collection applications (e.g. on the response to COVID-19) and browser-based tools.
GDMS will rely on its sovereign cloud infrastructure to deploy the LESMIS platform. GDMS’s role is to provide a high-performance cloud infrastructure as well as value-added services such as backup solutions, level 7 firewall solutions, and a managed service offering.
