SLASSCOM, which is the IT and Knowledge Services Industry Trade Chamber in Sri Lanka, has apparently been brewing under the hood: the first ever strategic review targeting the IT/BPM industry. Prepared by Pricewaterhousecoopers, the report focuses on the current state of growth Sri Lanka’s IT/BPM industry and emerging trends.
Key highlights of the report reveal some interesting facts. For example, the export revenue of the IT/BPM industry increased from $ 213 milllion IN 2007 to $ 720 million in 2013 – a growth of 238%. The number of companies has also grown from 33,700 then to over 75,000 now.
We’re not surprised – the Sri Lankan BPM industry has been bagging some top awards recently – but hard facts always impress. The report also points out the recent activities of major players in the game – such as Intel’s acquisition of Aepona (based across Belfast, Dublin, Sri Lanka and the United States) and global healthcare KPO MediGain establishing itself in Colombo and Kandy.
