Mitra Innovation talks ICT transformation at second PMO Summit

Mitra Innovation announced its second annual PMO Summit, where the focus will be on “ICT Transformation In Sri Lanka, and Defining a Shared Vision for 2025” on 19 June 2019 from 5-8 p.m. at Hatch Works (Pvt.) Ltd. located at No. 14, Baron Jayathilake Mawatha, Colombo 1.
Mitra Innovation is a fast-growing, UK-based technology solutions provider specialising in digital transformation, cloud enablement, and software development, with a powerful engineering branch in Sri Lanka.

The ICT industry in Sri Lanka has shown how serious they are about innovation and have made significant strides in recent years. However, Mitra Innovation feels that there are many hurdles to be prepared for, as the amount of technological change we can anticipate in our society in the next 10 years will be far beyond anything we have experienced over the past 20 years, and this will require Sri Lanka to truly innovate according to market demand.

“The shift in how customers access information, products, and services means that organisations need to determine whether their current processes and procedures, operating models, IT infrastructures, and most importantly the knowhow of their technical teams are on par for this inevitable change, thus requiring our organisations to come up with improved competency development plans that provide their teams with the relevant skills, knowledge, and qualifications,” said Mitra Innovation Founder Dr. Ashok Suppiah. “As business leaders of Sri Lanka, our responsibility reaches beyond just our organisation. We are all a catalyst towards a much larger growth story. To remain competitive, we need to get together and share ideas on new technological capabilities and make plans to embrace this massive transformation that we have so much potential for.”

This summit is targeted at IT project managers, programme managers, IT influencers, and entrepreneurs who will gain functional knowledge of emerging opportunities in digital transformation, managing the investment, collaboration, and the change necessary for them to be on par.
This year’s panellists are: Orion Development Founder and Director, SLASSCOM Chairman, and SAKS Analytics MD Jeewan Gnanam; HNB PLC Chief Technology and Digital Officer Rohan Philip Buultjens; Dulith Herath Kapruka.com Founder and Chairman, Grasshoppers Co-Founder, and Eisenhower Fellow; LSEG Technology Head of Strategic Account Management Vidumini Ranasinghe; and Pearson Lanka General Manager and Head of PMO Diyath Ariyaratne.

They will discuss their insights and best practices and provide guidance on flawless execution, outstanding results, and initiatives that support the future of the ICT Industry in Sri Lanka.
