Proving that they are a force to be reckoned with, the IFS Quiz Team (IFS Ostrinus) emerged winners of the ‘IT Category’ and runners-up of the overall quiz at the recently concluded SLASSCOM Quizathon. This prestigious quiz, which was held at the Kingsbury Hotel on the 27th of September 2013, saw 30 teams spanning several sectors including IT, Business Process Management, Banking & Finance and Education, as well as several individual teams, competing to win this battle of minds.
IFS was well represented at the competition by two teams – IFS Ostrinus and IFS Albus. IFS Ostrinus outshone their rivals to win the “IT Category” while its second team IFS Albus was placed 3rd in the same category. In a highly intriguing competition IFS Ostrinus were neck and neck with the individual team of Mr. Vindana Ariyawansa– and were equally placed at the end of the competition, requiring a tie- breaking round to determine the winners of the overall category. After a tough fight in the tie-breaker IFS Ostrinus became runners-up in the overall quiz.
Vice President and COO of IFS World Operations Sri Lanka Ranil Rajapakse said that he is very happy with the result and is proud of the achievements of IFS Ostrinus and IFS Albus. “At IFS we encourage our staff to utilize their creativity and talents, and their success at this competition shows that we are in the forefront on many playing fields in addition to Software Development. We are proud of them”.
