Giga IT collaborates with UNICEF Mexico to safely reopen schools during COVID-19.



Technologies used

The challenge

UNICEF Mexico, an organization dedicated to protecting children’s rights, needed a digital tool to facilitate the safe reopening of schools in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The tool had to provide up-to-date information on the status of schools and statistical data at the national level.

The solution

Giga IT partnered with UNICEF Mexico to develop a web application based on Azure infrastructure. The project involved a multidisciplinary team of developers in Europe, analysts and technicians from the Ministry of Public Education (SEP) of Mexico, and a team of Azure certified consultants from Giga IT.

We worked from the cloud infrastructure to implement an application that would provide information on school reopening and statistical data throughout the Mexican territory within the framework of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The results

  • Safe school reopening: The application facilitated the safe reopening of schools by providing up-to-date information and relevant data to educational authorities, teachers, and families.

  • Improved decision-making: The tool allowed authorities to make informed decisions about school reopening and operation during the pandemic.

  • Access to information: The application provided families with clear and accurate information about the status of schools and the safety measures implemented.

  • Scalability and flexibility for rapid adaptation of application capacity to traffic spikes or changes in demand.


Their collaboration was instrumental in safely reopening schools during the COVID-19 crisis. Their team developed a cloud-based web application that provided real-time data and vital information to educational authorities, teachers, and families.
