SLT-Mobitel, The National ICT Solutions Provider, announce as part of the Digital Partnership initiative, the Strategic Collaboration with Softlogic IT, in introducing Data Exchange and Analytics Services. This essentially enables businesses to adopt a data driven approach in solving problems and gaining deeper insights in data using the tools and processes of the IZAC “Data Exchange and Analytics Platform” and Microstrategy (Nasdaq: MISTR). IZAC is the Global Data Exchange platform by Whiteklay and, MicroStrategy (Nasdaq: MISTR) is the largest independent publicly-traded analytics and business intelligence company.

It is witnessed by a lot of companies that a robust Data Management landscape can help an organization boost its bottom line in prioritizing its sales and operational efforts. Efficient use of Decision Science has also led to more clarity in organization messaging and strategy. The joint solution will provide to Enterprises, a subscription based Intelligent Data Management As A Service, hosted on the SLT-Mobitel Akaza cloud platform. This solution will enable enterprises visualize data patterns, and apply predictive analytics to enable enterprises take timely decisions thereby making their business operations more efficient.

Commenting on the new offering from SLT-Mobitel, Mr. Janaka Abeysinghe, CEO of SLT said, “SLT-Mobitel recognizes that Data is the new ‘source of truth’ for the enterprise customers in terms of achieving sustainable growth and fueling new innovation. By engaging with SLT on the journey transcending Connectivity, Cloud and Data, we intend to take organizations in Sri Lanka to the next level of decision making using Data Virtualization, Analytics and AI tools of the Whiteklay platform, and, thus play a catalytic role in enterprise Digital Transformation”

Elaborating on this service, Amit Kumar Parija, CEO, Whiteklay Pte Ltd said, “The true value of data science will be realized only when you have a good data engineering stack. In today’s world, not having a strong data background should not be a deterrent for any organisation to get some quick insights from data. If a trend line can be spotted in the data, analysts should be able to ask the system as to ‘what changed?’ giving them the flexibility to slice and dice on the data at a real-time level and generate a dashboard as per their liking. If they don’t need the dashboard after a few days, they can discard or edit the same. But the fact is, deploying such systems inside any organisation’s environment takes a big effort from technology, strategy and finance teams. If the tech team isn’t that strong, then setting up the system and acquiring skills to manage and run the system takes a big pie out of the budget as well as time. This is where a lot of companies are looking to engage on getting ‘data exploration as a service’- hassle free big data exchange platform enabled at the click of a button.”

Commenting on this partnership, Roshan Rassool, CEO at Softlogic Information Technologies (Pvt) Ltd said that Sri Lankan business conditions have evolved rapidly, and today, companies face a new set of challenges that threaten their leadership positions. As such, the ability to deploy “data” as a competitive business asset is what will distinguish successful market leaders. The launch of AI as a service through SLT will be the first in Sri Lanka. Together with Softlogic Information Technologies (Pvt) Ltd – a leading systems integrator in the country, Micro strategy – the leader in the Gartner quadrant for AI and Whiteklay a leading AI integration company, it will add a new direction to our local companies to collaborate with these companies and innovate in the AI landscape. The services will include the integration of data from multiple sources, centralized data management, big data analytics, backed by a data scientist and an industry specialist who will be at the disposal of the client thus enabling companies to make AI affordable for their usage. The local businesses who use AI will be at a distinct advantage through the use of data analytics to make data driven decisions that can improve business-related outcomes. The benefits include effective marketing, new revenue opportunities, customer personalization and an improved operational efficiency. Combined with an effective strategy, these benefits can provide competitive advantages over its rivals.

The Hayleys Plantations Sector set a new benchmark for human resource development with the successful awarding of Sri Lanka’s first-ever National Skills Passport (NSP) and National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) to Field Officers.

Enhancing their competencies around sustainable plantations business operations, 70 Field Officers from Kelani Valley Plantations PLC (KVPL), Talawakelle Tea Estates PLC (TTEL) and Horana Plantations PLC (HPL) successfully completed the programme.

At the convocation ceremony, Hayleys Plantations Managing Director, Dr. Roshan Rajadurai stated, “Our mission at Hayleys Plantations is to enable a new approach to Plantations Management, merging experience-based knowledge with advanced technical knowledge.

“With the introduction of the NVQ and Skills Passport, we are helping our team elevate their capabilities and expertise, in order to build a vibrant, digitally empowered workforce. I congratulate each member of the team on completing these programmes, and look forward to seeing them develop as leading plantations Field Officers in the country, continuing their professional development and making a difference on-ground.”

The programmes are a four-partite initiative between the Employers Federation of Ceylon (EFC), International Labour Organisation (ILO) – Colombo Office, National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA) and Tertiary and Vocational Education Commission (TVEC). The technical support provided from National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA), was launched under the guidance of the Skills Development, Employment and Labour Relations Ministry.

Field staff members at Hayleys Plantations with over a year’s experience and commendable performance records were selected and evaluated by NAITA on theoretical and practical aspects. On completing the programme, the first batch of Field Officers were awarded NVQ certificates and a Digital Skills Passport smart card with a QR code, facilitating convenient online access to their skills portfolio.

“Given the success of the first phase, we are confident that the NVQ Skills Passport will help empower our team to innovate new solutions to resolve long-standing challenges in our industry. Moving forward, we are committed to continuously upholding and enhancing our practices, which have already won national and International acclaim – a commitment that has ensured we are ranked among the top three RPCs in the country,” Kelani Valley Plantations Head/ General Manager HR & Corporate Sustainability, Anuruddha Gamage stated.

A dedicated NSP online portal provides NSP holders with a gateway to find suitable jobs and access to reskilling and upskilling opportunities, locally and internationally. It is connected to employees, employers, qualification bodies and labour market intermediaries.

The NSP is directly linked to the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) platform, which helps recognise informally acquired knowledge, skills and competencies through formal assessments and certifications.

This can be used to help employees create a comprehensive virtual portfolio of skills and qualifications with their references and experience, in alignment with multiple skill assessment frameworks. By enabling access to this e-document, NSP can be a career guide for workers to open future growth opportunities.

A centrepiece of the Sri Lankan economy, the Hayleys Group maintains a global presence across five regions with business interests spanning 16 diverse sectors. Accounting for USD 600 million of the country’s foreign earnings and 4.2% of the nation’s total export income, Hayleys is a champion of sustainable innovation and represents one of Sri Lanka’s most prominent success stories. Hayleys is Sri Lanka’s number one corporate for 2021, as ranked by that nation’s leading business publications.
