Sri Lanka’s pretty popular with the NOA, the European trade association that awards the outsourcing industry. Sri Lanka, which grabbed the Outsourcing Destination of the Year Award in 2013, has been shortlisted this time.
“Sri Lanka has consistently offered a unique value proposition for UK and EU companies,” stated SLASSCOM Chairman Jayantha De Silva. “Especially for software product engineering and accounting outsourcing. Many UK and EU companies have for many years had successful operations in Sri Lanka. These honors that we have received are a testament to the tremendous momentum our industry has built up in the recent past and our growing International recognition”.
Foreign entities that have invested in Sri Lanka have already begun to tap the local talent; HSBC, Industrial & Financial Systems (IFS), Copal Amba, RR Donnelley, WNS,Virtusa, Pearson,Valista, Millennium Information Technology (owned by London Stock Exchange), and Innodata Isogen are overseas investors that have sizable assets here. There’s also a large pool over 300 other local IT companies – such as Informatics, hSenid, John Keells, DMS,Microimage and WSO2 – that also operate within a fiercely competitive environment.
