Powering ICT-enabled Business Innovation
Welcome to the Centre of Excellence and Innovation (COE) at the Mona School of Business and Management (MSBM)!
As one of the five institutional pillars of MSBM, the Centre of Excellence seeks to provide activist leadership in realizing information and communication technologies (ICT)-enabled business innovations, in the wider business community.
The Centre of Excellence and Innovation (COE) is a multi-disciplinary research and application-oriented technological environment for information and communication technologies (ICT)-Enabled Business Innovation.
The Centre of Excellence and Innovation (COE) relies on grant-funding to advance its work and has mobilized over US$1M in grant funds to support an expanding research portfolio, focussed on Open ICT Ecosystems. This includes Open Source software, Open Data, Digital Capacity Building and Data for Development.
The COE is involved in a number of innovative projects that demonstrate the value of Open Source tools and applications to rapidly develop and deliver business value.
The MSBM Centre of Excellence and Innovation will become the preferred source of information, knowledge and expertise, within Jamaica and the Caribbean Region, about the application of Open Source Software to drive business innovation.
