SECC Products | DX4IT – Digital Transformation for IT Companies


What is DX4IT?

​In response to Digital Transformation (DX) global trends, organizations are constantly adapting to keep up with the rapid rate of evolution within their industries. There is always a new focus, priority, or trend impacting the way organizations operate. Organizations are ever changing to optimize how they do business and build the related key capabilities.

In doing so, organizations should: (1) reduce inefficient and unnecessary expenditures, (2) identify opportunities to invest in, (3) implement best practices, (4) follow latest technology trends, and (5) ensure that cost/benefit analysis of change projects includes the entire picture.

SECC, Egypt’s tech catalyst and home to software (SW) standards, launched Digital Transformation for IT companies in Egypt. DX4IT aims to define a standard capability-based reference architecture for IT companies in Egypt. The initiative provides a common vocabulary, reusable designs and industry best practices like ITILCOBITAgileDevOpsCMMI and TOGAF.


DX4IT covers Enterprise Architecture’s four domains: Business, Data, Applications and Technology. A fifth dimension is added to measure Outcome and Performance from the capability. The newly-added dimension ensures the alignment between the capability outcomes with the organization’s strategic objectives and justifies the capability building effort\cost. It is incremental and is targeted to be continually updated to cope with recent advances in technology and best practices. DX4IT is targeting the capabilities needed for IT companies to ensure business agility and implement digital transformation.

DX4IT – Development Roadmap

The starting point was developing DX4SW reference architecture targeting SW development and testing organizations. DX4SW is considered a part of DX4IT. The first release of DX4SW was published in 2020 and services were provided to many companies in cooperation with NGOs to minimize the service cost.
Then, in 2022, SECC started developing a reference architecture with broader view targeting all IT companies in scope under the name of DX4IT.

And due to the great need for support services to handle the governmental DX projects and to the worldwide direction to implement DevOps practices, the first release of DX4IT is targeting:

DX4IT Services, What will SECC offer me?

Journey of providing DX4IT services begins with a full understanding of “where is the company now?”. It is “where” in regards to its agile, DevOps, testing, or support capabilities, based on the agreed upon scope of work, with reference to DX4IT. SECC carries out DX4IT baseline assessment to gauge the company’s current capabilities relying on five dimensions: Process, People, Information Systems and Technology. The fifth dimension is concerned with measuring the Outcome and Performance from the capability. 

Then, assessed companies will get the DX4IT Implementation service to boost their capability levels and resolve assessment findings.
Implementation service includes the following components
