Millennium IT ESP (or Millennium IT as it was known then) was founded in 1996 as a systems integrator and SUN Micro systems authorised reseller. The following year, the company rose to prominence as it entered into software design and development when it designed and installed a straight through processing system for the Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE). The same year, 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.
These significant milestones which paved the country’s 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 Millennium IT ESP as a leading IT solutions provider in the country. The company went on to become one of the world’s leading developers of high-performance trading systems and eventually formed the exchange technology hub of the London Stock Exchange Group following the acquisition that took place in the year 2009.
In December 2017, Ambeon Group acquired the enterprise solutions business along with a 100% stake of Millennium IT ESP from London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) with management and shareholding control. As part of this acquisition agreement, Ambeon also entered into a wider ownership plan with the employees of Millennium IT ESP giving them an equity stake and enabling them to play a significant role in shaping the company’s future as owner managers.
