Understanding the importance of creating lasting ties between the flourishing IT/BPM industry and Lankan undergraduates, the Kandy BPM Conference and Kandy IT Conference took place on the second and third days of the Kandy IT/BPM Week respectively, with the aim of bringing together top industry professionals and students.


The two conferences featured a line-up of some of Sri Lanka’s leading thought leaders and entrepreneurs in the IT/BPM sector, representing top local and international companies, who will address undergraduates from the University of Peradeniya and other universities in the country.


Both events took place at the E.O.E. Pereira Theatre, located at University of Peradeniya’s Faculty of Engineering and is being organised by SLASSCOM, supported by the Faculties of Engineering and Arts of the University of Peradeniya. The BPM Conference was a new addition to the IT Week initiative, in order to give equal prominence to this rapidly growing sector in Sri Lanka. 


The BPM conference, targeting engineering management, management and arts graduates/undergraduates, took place on 11thJune. 


The speakers included SAKS global CEO Hariharan Padmanaban, Infomate CEO Jehan Perinpanayagam, Accenture Senior Vice President Virendra Perera, WNS Global Managing Director Dushan Soza, Copal Amba Country Head Chanakya Dissanayake, HSBC GSC Vice President – HR Lasantha Dassanayake, CA Sri Lanka President and Ernst & Young Partner Arjuna Herath and SLASSCOM Executive Director Dharshan Cooray.

It will be held from 10-12 June 2016 in various locations in and around Kandy.
