Mitra Innovation hosted successful knowledge sharing and networking evening


On Thursday 22 June Mitra Innovation invited customers and contacts to an informative knowledge sharing evening at the prestigious Eight Club in London. The event was a great success with around 30 people in attendance, networking and listening to key talks from industry specialists.

The main topics for the evening were Cloud integration, digital transformation and WSO2 middleware.

Derek Bell, co-founder and COO of Mitra Innovation, spoke about digital transformation and Agile development. He started by showing a video by film-maker Gerd Leonhard called ‘Change2’which explains the digital transformation we are all currently undertaking and will undertake – not just businesses and organisations, but individuals and governments too. You can watch it here. It is a great short film.

Chris Stone Head of IT Integration at Travis Perkins – was up next. Chris spoke about the current digital transformation and systems integration programme that the UK building supplies company is currently undergoing. It was a great insight into the problems that many organisatons are facing today, and how they can be successfully overcome.

Senaka Fernando, Director of Solutions Architecture from WSO2, was our third speaker. We invited Senaka because we regularly use WSO2 middleware on client projects, and we knew Senaka would provide a useful insight into their product roadmap for the future.

Our final speaker was Sudaraka Jayashanka, CTO and Chief Architect at Mitra Innovation. Sudaraka spoke about systems integration, and showcased a demonstration of how all types of software can be integrated to produce great results.

The evening ended with drinks, canapes and networking – some of which ended well after midnight!

The Mitra Innovation knowledge sharing and networking evening was a great opportunity for our guests to learn and network with peers from a broad spectrum of industries including (but not limited to) finance, food and beverage, local and central government, transport infrastructure, telecoms and construction.
