SLIIT strikes gold again for best software

Winners rejoicing with their awards

Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology (SLIIT), a leader in tertiary education in IT walked away with the Gold Award and Merit Award at the National Best Quality Software Awards (NBQSA) at the 10th annual award ceremony organised by the British Computer Society Sri Lanka (BCSSL) Section recently. In addition to the award under the prestigious Tertiary Student Project category, the SLIIT team also won the Microsoft Excellence Award. The Gala Awards Night was held at the Waters Edge.

Chief Executive Officer of SLIIT Prof. Lalith Gamage said: "This award clearly demonstrates the calibre of our students and the exposure they are fortunate to receive that brings out their potential. This is what sets our institution apart in a highly competitive environment from both local and global perspectives." Chairman of SLIIT Prof. S. Karunaratne commented: "Being the foremost and the leading degree awarding institute in the field of Information Technology in Sri Lanka, SLIIT brings out the best in our students with degrees and specialized training programmes based on internationally accepted curricula."

The coveted NBQSA competition that recognizes and honours significant technological achievements in the software industry serves to showcase and benchmark Sri Lankan ICT products and fulfills a much needed requirement in a highly competitive globalised economic structure. The competition creates an opportunity to gain international recognition for locally developed ICT products. Since 2003 the NBQSA has partnered with International Awards programmes such as the Asia Pacific ICT Awards (APICTA) and the World Information Technology Summit (WITSA) Awards. APICTA is initiated by the Multimedia Development Corporation of Malaysia to stimulate IT innovation and creativity and facilitate technology transfer.
