This initiative enables the university to provide comprehensive training on ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems to lecturers and students. At present, the lecturers cover ERP topics, but donít possess anything to demonstrate them for the benefit of students in the IM labs. The students will also have the opportunity to understand ERP architecture and technology with its many benefits. Another objective in installing the fully functional solution is to help students get involved in industry-related projects and assignments, thereby providing them a path for career advancement. The donation of the ERP system to the IM department of the University is a boon that will enable them to produce well-qualified students familiar with the latest IT and management concepts, which in turn will do much to enhance the quality of Sri Lankaís workforce.

ABAS sources stated that they selected the IM Department of the University of Kelaniya because it has evolved into one of the best academic departments in the country, teaching IT and management skills. In fact, it pioneered the teaching of management in the faculty of science in Sri Lanka. Furthermore, the university prepares students to face the challenges of industry through an industry placement program, which sharpens their skills by engaging them in projects and assignments. Also, its IM Department has state-of-the-art computer laboratories that cater to the ICT requirements of students following the undergraduate and postgraduate programs.
