The first year undergraduates of the Department of Accountancy organized a seminar on Cloud Computing and Internet of Things (IoT) which was held on 22nd June 2016 at the Faculty auditorium. The seminar was conducted by a group of expert representatives from “99X technology” which is a software engineering company that specializes in delivering high-end software product development services to independent software vendors (ISVs) worldwide.

The head of the Department of Accountancy Dr. Anura Karunarathne graced the occasion along with other distinguished invitees including senior lecturers and lecturers of the university, undergraduates and others who desired to participate.

The scope and objective of the seminar revolved around providing the undergraduates with a precise and basic understanding about the attributes and industry implementation of cloud computing and Internet of things which are two of the most widely improvised technological developments in the IT field during the past decade. The seminar was conducted in an interactive manner which helped the undergraduates grasp the finer details of these developments and enhance their scopes of knowledge.

Mr. Jehan Wijesinghe from 99x technology was the first speaker at the seminar. Mr. Jehan provided the audience with a brief introduction to the functions of 99X technology along with an explanation on its corresponding industry. Next, the stage was over to Mr. Manoj Fernando who conducted a major part of the seminar by covering the topic of Cloud computing. Mr.  Manoj Fernando was a graduate from the University of Moratuwa and is currently working under the capacity of a Senior Software Engineer at 99X Technology.

The next segment of the seminar was conducted by Mr. Charith Wickramasinghe who discussed the topic of Internet of Things. Mr. Charith Wickramasinghe currently works at 99x Technology as a Trainee Software Engineer under the IoT research and development section. He was able to win an Asia Pacific ICT Gold Award back in 2014 with his IoT product called - Project connect. He was also able to hold the title 'Young Computer Scientist for the year 2015' after winning the YCS competition. Hence, it was a great opportunity for the undergraduates to hear from an expert in the respective field.

The representatives of 99X technology were presented with a token of appreciation by Lecturer, Mr. Prabath Perera for their valuable and voluntary contribution to share their expertise with the undergraduates of the university of Kelaniya.
