Business Focus Areas
DIGILEXIS Consulting provides services in a number of subject areas including, broadly speaking, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Management & Leadership, Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Design, and others. Following is the description of our main business focus areas.
ICT Law, Policy & Regulations
We assist governments, governmental agencies and intergovernmental organizations in their effforts to adress ICT related challenges for the society with the drafting of relevant and up-to-date legislations as well as with the formulation of sound and effective policies and regulations. We also train policy-makers in matters of ICT regulations, Internet governance and digital diplomacy (international negotiations around ICTs & regulations and digital economy.)
Digital Identity & Digital Assets
We provide policy expertise and advice in the design and implementation of identity infrastructure, systems and credentials, particularly decentralized identity in the context of digital technology. Our expertise spans from the historical emergence of authoritative identity credentials since medieval Europe to today’s decentralized, blockchain-based identity infrastructure also known as Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI). Namely, we have been involved in the creation of Sovrin Foundation and the launching of the Sovrin Identity Network, participating in developing its governance and trust frameworks, along with appropriate policies, as well as in the Network maintenance activities.
Innovation & Entrepreneurship
We help governments draft well-researched, evidence-based innovation policies in Science & Technology as well as in Entrepreneurship. While our primary focus for entrepreneurship is in the digital tech sector, we also address the need for developing countries to put in place policies that promote and support individual intiatives for productive activities addressing local needs, creating jobs and strengthening the economy.
FinTech & Financial Inclusion
Several institutions are looking to tap into this creative sector to streamline financial inclusion processes for communities that have been so far left out of the formal banking services and related economic activities. If you are one of them, we can assist you in evaluating available technologies and needs, implementing FinTech projects, assessing regulatory chanllenges relating to the deployments of emerging FinTech services, or formualating enabling policies.

Management & Leadership
We deal in various aspects of organizational management including shaping the cultural foundations of organizational hebaviors, diagnozing organizational culture and effecting culture change as well as driving performance and results. In terms of management overall, we resort to Agile Management frameworks such as Management 3.0 and Scrum. And lastly, we offer Quality Management services in reference to ISO 9001 standard.
We assist our clients in identifying their strategic knowledge areas and develop a Knowledge Management (KM) framework. We design and implement KM strategies and solutions within organizations as well as across a network of organizations and agents. We help institutionalize the availability of and access to the wealth of experiences accumulated by our clients’ personnel and agents as well as on leveraging that wealth to improve their own processes and increase the value they create for their stakeholders.
Information Systems, IT Governance & Audit
We diagnose challenges to information flows and curation as well as we conduct information systems audit within an organization. We outline a proper architecture for information circulation, availability and use in ways that help our clients realize the full potential of their information asset. We help our clients build successful information systems, enterprise systems and management support systems, with a view to significantly improve their internal processes, amplify their customer satisfaction and help them get ahead of the competition. We also conduct IT & Governance audits based on the best standards in the field.
Design: Structures, Processes & Artifacts
We bring to the table an acute design eye and a deep design thinking which can benefit everything that needs designing, whether physical or non-physical. We accompany clients in designing organizational structures or re-structuring organizations as needed; services and processes that respond most accurately to the needs of patrons; communication materials and various artifacts our clients may need to support their actions and advance their goals, taking into account the audience and the cultural context. Even te development of public spaces in our urban environment may benefit from our usability-sensitive design approach.
Other domains of intervention include:
- Digital Marketing
- ICT sectoral applications (Education, Health, Agriculture, etc.)
- Project Management and Evaluation
We operate at organizational, national and international levels. We have been working for clients and with partners from all around the world. While we remain open to work with all potential clients from any sector and on any project we can contribute to based on our domains of competency, our clients so far may be grouped into three broad categories or profiles.
Public Institutions: These are government related, at both national and international levels. Namely, they include Governments and governmental agencies; Intergovernmental and international treaty-based organizations; as well as International cooperation and development agencies.
Businesses: These incldue private businesses (whether local or global corporations) as well as state-owned companies as the case may be.
Non-Profits: These include Academic institutions, Foundations and various global or transnational NGOs.
Again, we welcome any other potential clients which might not fit in these three main client profiles we have known so far but may find interest in our expertise and services.

Have you ever asked yourselves these questions: What more can we do with ICTs other than sending email, editing and storing files, and making and browsing websites? What about the Internet, that global and open communications space: How is it built and who controls it—if anybody? Can we rely on it for all our professional communications? How does it evolve and can we have a say in shaping that evolution? How can we use those ICTs to further our mission and goals for the wider public? How can we make sure we are ready to rip the most benefits for our digital economy?
