  • SLT in collaboration with Cisco and MillenniumIT ESP announced the launch of its new managed SD-WAN services to accelerate digitization of enterprise and government customers in Sri Lanka.
  • SLT is a pioneer in the Sri Lankan telecom industry and a leader in MPLS services for enterprise and government customers.

Sri Lanka Telecom PLC (SLT) will offer the Cisco SD-WAN’s full functionality including intelligent dynamic routing, optimized cloud connectivity, and visibility into applications and performance to its enterprise customers in Sri Lanka.

This collaboration brings together Cisco’s intent-based networking solutions, SLT’s connectivity solutions and MillenniumIT ESP’s systems integration capabilities to quickly develop and deploy multiple managed services efficiently and cost-effectively across Sri Lanka.  SLT will handle the deployment and operation of enterprise WAN Service combined with its underlay connectivity options with MPLS and Internet connectivity, enabling them to offer its enterprise customers a host of differentiated services in a seamless, reliable and secure manner.

As Sri Lankan businesses embrace digital transformation, many are looking at managed service providers to simplify running their IT operations, specifically around provisioning, managing and troubleshooting services.  Recognizing the need and the general transition of applications to the cloud, SLT collaborated with Cisco and MillenniumIT ESP to offer SD-WAN. With this innovative leap forward, SLT’s business customers can have their managed services turned up quickly, managed securely from both captive and the cloud, and modified easily using software-defined networking technology.

Focusing on the concept of “grow more, pay less”, SLT SD-WAN offers the simplicity of management, better visibility, enhanced application experience, optimized cloud connectivity, and a more secure WAN for accessing multiple cloud applications. SLT SD-WAN natively integrates Cisco’s security stack to provide threat protection that is consistently maintained across branch offices and multiple clouds without compromising performance.

Cisco’s networking solutions, along with SLT’s connectivity options, makes SLT SD-WAN the most comprehensive solution. With the true separation of the SD-WAN Layers of Control, Management, Orchestration, and Transport, Cisco and SLT will deliver the best user experience, securely across any cloud, as a fully managed service. SLT also plans to expand the SD WAN to global customers in near future”.

MillenniumIT ESP shines at SLASSCOM RPA Conference 2020

MillenniumIT ESP shines at SLASSCOM RPA Conference 2020

  • MillenniumIT ESP is the winner of the Information Technology category under Case Studies

MillenniumIT ESP – Sri Lanka’s leading Information Technology solutions provider – won the SLASSCOM RPA 2020 award for submission of Case Study under the Information Technology category. The SLASSCOM (Sri Lanka Association of Software and Services Companies) RPA Conference 2020, during which the award was presented, was held virtually over a three-day course in December 2020.

MillenniumIT ESP’s winning RPA solution was a ‘Purchase Order Validation and Invoice Creation Process’ case study with proven ability to convert the same into a commercial solution. The company had chosen its own business environment as its test environment for the proposed case study: As an IT firm which plays a leading Systems Integrator role in the industry, MillenniumIT ESP receives multiple invoices for purchases of services, hardware, software, and support services from vendors. As per the company’s internal process, the invoices are required to be entered into an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and there were 3 resources from the Finance Department partially allocated for the invoice creation task in the ERP system. While creating the invoices in the ERP system, it is required to validate the invoices (each line item) against its respective purchase order prior entering the same into the system. This is a rule-based task which required a significant amount of productive human time from the Finance Team members. Key challenges identified during this process included the number of days taken to reflect an invoice in the ERP system since its receipt date, the human errors that occurred while entering the data into the system which then took a considerable amount of effort to rectify, and the significant productive time wasted in validating each line item of invoices against purchase orders.

MillenniumIT ESP is the winner of the Case Study Award under the Information Technology category at the SLASSCOM RPA Conference 2020.

MillenniumIT ESP’s Senior Consultant – RPA, Danura Lunuwilage, presented a session under the theme of ‘Supercharged RPA’ at the SLASSCOM RPA Conference 2020.

MillenniumIT ESP proposed a software robot (Bot) that connects to the email account to which invoices were sent to, downloads the PDF invoices and extracts the relevant fields by using OCR technology. It then searched for the purchase orders raised within the ERP system and validated each line item of the invoice against the same. In addition, in case of a discrepancy, the Bot highlighted the issue and sent a notification for manual validation.

After the Bot’s implementation for Purchase Order Validation and Invoice Creation Process (RPA solution), MillenniumIT ESP gained several positive business outcomes including invoices being created in the system on the same day they arrived, any discrepancies raised in invoices or purchase order being captured and escalated within the same day, no human errors (such as typos, delays or missed entries) during the invoice creation process, validation of line items in invoices against purchase orders being 100% accurate, release of 2 employees from the routine invoice creation task and their reallocation in value addition tasks for the organization, and standardizing the purchase order validation and invoice creation process to adhere to an internal SLA 93% (7% for discrepancies).

At the SLASSCOM RPA Conference 2020, MillenniumIT ESP’s Senior RPA Consultant Danura Lunuwilage who has over 4 years of experience in the field of RPA technology and trends, also carried out an interesting session on ‘Supercharged RPA’ where he shared his knowledge on ‘Next Generation Intelligent Digital Workforce’. The company was also a Silver Sponsor of this successful event.

MillenniumIT ESP is one of Sri Lanka’s leading Information Systems solution providers delivering IT solutions to several industries; including Banks and Finance Companies, Telecommunications, Apparel and Manufacturing, Healthcare, Leisure, Construction, Transport, Agriculture, Government, Public Sector and other leading conglomerates.

MillenniumIT ESP and STEMUp Partnership Strengthened by a Successful Year End Review

MillenniumIT ESP and STEMUp Partnership Strengthened by a Successful Year End Review

MillenniumIT ESP – Sri Lanka’s leading IT Solutions provider – partnered with STEMUp, a not-for-profit organization, last year as an industry advisor. The objective of this partnership was to inspire and engage local students to become interested and opt to pursue degrees and careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields in order to support STEMUp’s newest mission of democratizing the knowledge and technology access of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to every student in the island.

The partnership has proven to create a great impact in the country and has led to the integration that was envisaged by MillenniumIT ESP. It has managed to encourage and drive student involvement and participation, thereby creating a new generation of technologically sound young individuals. This venture has acted to enhance access to knowledge, expertise and information that will transform lives and drive local students to reach new potentials, making ground making discoveries and advancements that will benefit society in leaps and bounds.

“Our partnership with STEMUp was primarily one of the ways by which we could contribute towards the development of Sri Lanka and the country’s future generations. We are passionately driven towards enabling them to be ready for the revolving and evolving dynamics of tomorrow and thus be future-ready,” commented MillenniumIT ESP’s Director/Chief Executive Officer Shevan Goonetilleke.

“We are seeing enterprises all around the world rapidly adapting to emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to conduct business through innovation and efficiency. Therefore, preparing our younger generations to adapt and embrace such knowledge is a need of the hour and we believe we have been able to successfully contribute towards this development through our partnership with STEMUp,” he further added.

Supported by the partnership, various activities were initiated around the island. Student focused training sessions were conducted across different schools including Ananda College Colombo, Gateway College Colombo, St. Paul’s Girls’ School Milagiriya, and Vidyaloka Central College, Balangoda. Other public in-person activities were organized to create awareness and share knowledge – these included attending the Infotel Exhibition and hosting a stall, as well as focused training for the Imagine Cup competition and coaching students at Gateway College Colombo. An impressive total of 1000 students and teachers were addressed during the year in review.

The sudden emergence and unexpected rise of the pandemic did not deter the journey nor restrict progress. Over 15 online sessions were conducted as a part of a webinar series for the “Machine Learning for Kids” program.  These sessions were held during the weekends and were hosted in collaboration with MillenniumIT ESP, through live-streaming via the STEMUp social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Plans are now underway to host more than 10 online sessions in the coming months.

Backed by decades of experience and expertise in technology, innovation, adaptation and transformation, MillenniumIT ESP has identified that Sri Lanka still struggles to be on par with global technology adaptation trends. This is mainly due to the inadequate number of IT professionals in the country and sharing of their technical knowhow with mass audiences. Going one step further, in addition to sharing expert knowledge around the country, MillenniumIT ESP provided internship opportunities to students following STEMUp programs.

“The STEMUp Educational Platform is not just a platform to learn STEM skills. It is also a great platform to showcase your talents to the rest of the world whist sharpening your leadership, team working and networking skills – abilities that you cannot master in any traditional university or college set up,” stated Yasiru Geevinda, a Software Engineer Intern at MillenniumIT ESP’s Emerging Technologies Team. “I joined the STEMUp Educational Foundation back in 2016 as a volunteer. We used to travel to several schools with my university colleagues, including rural areas, attempting to fill students’ gaps in STEM skills. Afterwards, I received the opportunity to be the leader of the sub initiative of the STEMUp Foundation called ‘Machine Learning for Kids’ through which I was able to further sharpen my skills. Eventually, I was recruited by MillenniumIT ESP as a Software Engineer Intern. I am really passionate about Machine Learning and AI, so, STEMUp was a good platform for me to showcase my passion to the world and get hired by a great company, and most importantly work in the field I am really interested in,” added Yasiru.

The STEMUp Educational Foundation supports the view that STEM literacy is a foundation skill that will be beneficial for all careers and will help to build critical thinking abilities, creativity and collaboration skills. Gaining STEM proficiency provides the base for these skills and grants the flexibility to adapt to frequent changes in the local and international employment arena.

Commenting on the success of the partnership, Indika Dalugama, Director, STEMUp Educational Foundation said, “The STEMUP Educational Foundation is always trying to introduce emerging technologies into the national education system. ‘Machine Learning for Kids’ is a good example of that. As we all agree, it is imperative that children understand how our world works when they come of an appropriate age to learn. The best way for kids to understand the capabilities and implications of Machine Learning is to be able to use and build systems with this technology themselves.

Employees are united by loyalty to the Company and a passion for success whilst leadership is driven by teamwork, innovation, enforcement of positive relationships and a result-oriented mind set.” Goonetilleke continued.  “After twenty-five years of creating a value driven culture internally and future ready business models and strategies externally, MillenniumIT ESP has earned credibility as a trusted Employer and Service Provider/Partner. Having matured our engagement model, we are now ready to continue this journey into the next phase of growth. In the immediate future, the Company will focus on enabling new age technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) to meet near future needs and drive sustainable and profitable business outcomes across Sri Lanka and the world over,” Goonetilleke concluded.

MillenniumIT ESP (formerly known as ‘Millennium IT/ Millennium Information Technologies (Private)  Limited’) was founded in 1996 by its Founder/Director Mr. Tony Weerasinghe as a Systems Integrator and Sun Microsystem’s authorized reseller. The following year itself the Company rose to prominence as it deployed the hardware infrastructure solution for the Colombo Stock Exchange’s (CSE) trading platform.  Subsequently, the Company built the first suite of telecom software for Dialog Axiata or ‘Dialog GSM’ as it was known then, Sri Lanka’s leading GSM telecom provider.

Over the years, the organization has grown in numbers with over 400 employees who work across all sectors facilitating and implementing a wide breath of technologies to a truly global customer base. MillenniumIT ESP has managed to build several global partnerships with leading firms including Oracle, CISCO, Dell, Microsoft, IBM, and Edgeverve (“Infosys”) and the Company has also received numerous excellence, innovation and performance-based awards across various markets for its services around the globe, and continues to excel in their respective fields year on year.

As the leader in enterprise technology for the telecommunication industry, MillenniumIT ESP together with its global partners, has produced robust technology architecture and infrastructure, as well as reliable and scalable enterprise solutions for the sector. The Company provides Sri Lanka Telecom, Dialog Axiata, Mobitel Sri Lanka and all other telecommunication companies in the country with enterprise grade infrastructure solutions comprising of critical Servers, Storages, Consolidated Databases and Backup solutions and implemented Virtualized/ Hyper-converged Infrastructure platforms, using industry leading technology stacks.

In 2007, MillenniumIT ESP assisted Dialog Axiata to transform its Legacy Network to make it the country’s first IP-MPLS network, and in 2013 in order to support the increasing bandwidth, converted this IP-MPLS network to a 100G DWDM based Cisco network which was South Asia’s first 100G network for Cisco technologies.  In 2008, when Sri Lanka Telecom introduced a game changer and ventured into the television space in the country with the launch of PeoTV, MillenniumIT ESP provided the IPTV platform and digital Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions to PeoTV in this audience-empowering business. MillenniumIT ESP also enabled Sri Lanka Telecom to reconstruct the architecture of the television industry and secure the dominant design in the local Pay-TV industry.

The fast-changing dynamics of the branded apparel industry demanded the fail-proof orchestration of a complex supply chain. Upholding system integrity is crucial for delivering high-standard performance in designing, manufacturing and logistics at high speed. MillenniumIT ESP implemented a robust Security solution for its compute and endpoint which is its security infrastructure to enhance the capacity to confront the entire threat lifecycle, protect critical technology infrastructure and ensure information security and safety.

Within the Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) industries, while implementing and providing ongoing support for Core Banking, Treasury and other Enterprise software applications and enterprise grade Infrastructure solutions including Enterprise Servers, Storages, Database Consolidations, Backup solutions, Virtualization solutions and Enterprise Security solutions to almost all leading commercial banks in Sri Lanka, MillenniumIT ESP’s team of experts provide specialized banking and Fin-Tech skills and have an in-depth understanding of the business and associated technologies.

These significant milestones which elevated the Sri Lankan IT industry to new heights, not only placed Sri Lanka on the world map, inspired budding technology entrepreneurs and set the industry on a growth trajectory, but also cemented MillenniumIT ESP as a leading IT solutions provider in the country.

MillenniumIT ESP was also at the forefront of building Cognitive solutions to free talent from low value-adding tasks.  “AI BoT” applications designed by MillenniumIT ESP have significantly lessened the human interface in people operations at leading apparel companies, and customer service at prominent banks and telecommunication companies. The application of cognitive computing has accrued many benefits for MillenniumIT ESP’s customers including increased access to employee services, lowered costs, enhanced speed, and accuracy of responses; enabling them to focus on more important, critical decision-making tasks and projects.

In December 2009, the Company became a fully owned subsidiary of London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) until its acquisition by Ambeon Holdings PLC. In December 2017, Ambeon Holdings PLC – a medium sized conglomerate with market dominance in the areas of financial services, manufacturing of porcelain and textile products, real estate, technology, and strategic investments – took over MillenniumIT ESP from LSEG with 100% management and shareholding control. As part of this acquisition agreement, Ambeon Group also entered into a broader ownership plan with the employees of MillenniumIT ESP, granting them an equity stake and enabling them to play a significant role in shaping the Company’s future as owner managers.

During the latter part of 2019, MillenniumIT ESP announced the launch of the new purpose of the Company which was to ‘Reimagine Today and Reinvent Tomorrow’. In addition, the Company unveiled its new logo, depicting agility and the transformational mindset, integrating the same with the new purpose statement. The new logo also evoked the purpose driven Company values including being Pre-emptive, Versatile, Energetic and Relentless, all geared towards understanding the future, whether it is technologies, industries or customers.

MillenniumIT ESP also invested in an ultra-modern, state-of-the-art Security Operating Center (SOC) and Network Operating Center (NOC) at its third office location.

During the same year, the Company invested in the acquisition of Infoseek (Private) Limited, an innovative Cloud based Human Resource Information System (HRIS) company providing services under the brand ‘MintHRM’. This investment has become an ideal strategic fit for MillenniumIT ESP to further its interest in building a fully-fledged cloud based ‘Internal CRM’ platform.

The year 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic, brought in an array of opportunities for this global technology player, where they were able to leverage on their core strengths. As a responsible corporate citizen, MillenniumIT ESP embraced the ‘new normal’ culture within the Company by encouraging employees to work from home and take all necessary precautions at every instance. The Company further implemented all Health and Safety Guidelines stipulated by the Ministry of Health.

In addition, the Company was committed to partner with the governing bodies of Sri Lanka’s healthcare sector and support them in their approach towards tackling the pandemic. MillenniumIT ESP partnered with Cisco Sri Lanka in offering an AI enabled video and audio conferencing system to the healthcare sector in Sri Lanka. This solution facilitated instant decision making which was extremely crucial for containing the spread of the pandemic in the country. The Company further launched HealthVision – a web enabled, mobile responsive remote patient monitoring platform for medical personnel and care givers, which proved to be the need of the time.

Looking into the future, from a business perspective, MillenniumIT ESP intends embracing every opportunity that the circumstances permit.  As a global technology player, the Company intends growing its footprint in Public Sector, Health Sector, Leisure and Real Estate. Further, expanding on its product and solutions portfolio and progressing beyond strong system integration capabilities, the Company’s software development practice which focuses on product development will continue to evolve rapidly by offering cloud applications (SaaS) to the respective enterprises.  Regional and global expansions are also another area of focus for the future. The Company hopes to augment its core technology offerings using emerging technologies, while continuing to funnel investment into IP development and acquisitions.
