The Partnering for Success conference - organized by Wageningen University Centre for Development Innovation (CDI) - attracted talented Monitoring and Evaluation professionals from around the world as well as experts in Partnerships.
It was the first time DevAlto Technologies attended a conference "not for technologists" and got to take part in the larger conversation on monitoring and evaluation (M&E).
We believe innovation and sustainability (for the development of our software LogAlto) can greatly benefit from partnering with M&E experts and M&E training institutions.
At DevAlto Technologies, we are exploring a partnership-based business approach, where we not only work for our client within the international development community but also with them to create adaptive M&E Information systems (M&EIS). This means: 1) Conducting research to ensure LogAlto is adapted to any type of project or organization; 2) Ensuring that we are developing features in a sustainable way; 3) Integrate the M&E IS to a Monitoring and evaluation plan as the software is not a solution in itself but a component to a larger framework.
While the conference focused on how M&E can strengthen partnerships for sustainable development. Here are the 3 key takeaways from the conference on how DevAlto can contribute to the sector and become a partner for success:
Nevertheless, small private businesses have a long way to go before carving out their place in the public-private partnerships. As NGOs are seeking more and more solutions to improve their M&E systems, DevAlto offers limited consultation and flexible pilot testing plans to assess an organization's capacities and needs. We believe that before promoting our software, we need to listen and understand our potential clients’ needs and make sure a partnership will be mutually beneficial.
