Just In Time Group holds JIT Solutions Day 2018

Just In Time Group (JIT) held its ‘JIT Solutions Day 2018’ invitee-only event exclusively for its customers last week, at Hilton Colombo.

The objective of this event was to introduce JIT’S proven solutions to its customers and strategic partners, by providing new technologies with valueadded information specific to each industry vertical.

The event was split into two segments: the morning session, themed ‘Tech Disruption’ and the afternoon session, themed ‘Tech Space’, both of which extensively served the purpose of conveying information and guidance to JIT’S customer base.

The morning session kicked off to a welcome speech by JIT Group CEO Chrishan Mendis, followed by the first topic of the day, ‘Continuous Disruption: Are You Ready?’, hosted by CA Technologies Chief Technology Officer Asia Pacific and Japan Stephen Miles, where he covered digital transformation challenges, creating an agile business, building better apps faster, making security a competitive advantage and modernising IT architectures. Gemalto Asia President and Government Business Unit and Singapore Country Head Teck Lee Tan took over the spotlight with a presentation on ‘Enabling a Trusted Digital Environment in Sri Lanka’.

‘Next Generation Businesses Powered By APIS’ was the following topic covered by Axiata Group Chief Information Officer Anthony Rodrigo. He distinguished that “practically every industry has been or will be disrupted” and spoke on the disruption of both the banking and telco industries.

He stressed on the importance of application programming interfaces (APIS) in disruption of technology and unveiled a case study on how telcos are transforming the businesses with APIS. “An API is a very useful mechanism that allows two pieces of software to exchange messages or data in a standard format. Thus, it becomes an instrument to search for new revenue streams, open the doors to talent or automate processes in an innovative way.”

Concluding the energetic ‘ice breaker session’, Infosec Regional APJ and Risk Advocate RSA Ramon Karingal presented on ‘Are You Ready With Data Privacy?’, where he covered the risk challenge, regulatory burden, ‘what’s needed to close the gap’, a strategy to manage data privacy and the proven path to take command of risk, followed by datawerks CTO and Founder Tony Andris presenting on ‘Draining The Data Swamp’, where Andris discussed the evolution of modern data architecture, the end of data duplication, ‘Data lakes = data swamps’, Internet of things (IOT) and m2m, resulting in massive data sets and real-time enablement being key. The event moved on to a live discussion, which was moderated by Daily FT Editor Nisthar Cassim, which was on ‘Regulatory Economy Vs Disruptive Economy’, which closed the morning session.

The afternoon session, ‘Tech Space’ was entertained by technical sessions designed with six track sessions covering banking, telco, enterprise, security, government and emerging technology.

Ending the afternoon session, the evening was concluded with a cocktail evening to connect, network and celebrate with JIT Group’s stakeholders and customers.
