well perhaps we need to be a bit more clear.
It is essential imho to list the three major providers, because each of 
them have specific needs and challenges so it is three completly 
different view points to consider.
just an example: ngo needs software and probably technical training
government needs systems that could address country level issues.
entrepreneurs are looking for service to sell, yet another set of 
constraints coming in.
More over the status is quite different: ngo believes in mobile but most 
of the time lack expertise and tools. Government are overlooking the 
mobile platform.
So i believe this is three different view points to consider
