Siddhi Complex Event Processing Engine has won the bronze award in Tertiary category at the recently concluded National Best Quality Software Awards 2011 held in Hotel Galadari, Colombo, Sri Lanka. The winners are now published at NBQSA official website. Further, Siddhi has been nominated to APICTA (Asia Pacific ICT Awards) 2011 which will be held during November 8 – 11, 2011 in Thailand.


Siddhi was our final year project at Dept. of Computer Science & Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Moratuwa. It was a four member project with other members being Suho, Isuru, and Subash. We were overwhelmed with joy on the day we heard that we have secured a place at NBQSA. They weren't specific about the exact award we got. So, we have been waiting with nervously, and full of excitement for the moment for winning the award. It's really a pleasure to know that a year old hard work has gained benefits.

Along with us, another two other projects from our department has won a merit, and a special recognition award. Further, another two projects from Dept. of Electronic & Telecommunication of University of Moratuwa also able to secure a merit and a special recognition award. In total, it's five awards.

Special thanks should go to our supervisors, Dr. Srinath Perera, and Ms. Vishaka Nanayakkara who have given us enormous support. Our project coordinator Dr. Shantha Fernando, Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana who has provided us guidance when in need should also be remembered.
