Introducing: Charith Handagama, Lead Technical Consultant at Change8

Charith’s technical expertise helps ensure our customers’ enterprise software projects go to plan and get the results they want.

He was a key part of our Change8 team who recently completed the UK’s first ever IFS Cloud implementation. Our client – a leading UK manufacturing business – has now gone live with its upgrade from IFS Apps 7.5 to IFS Cloud.

Before joining Change8, Charith spent 13 years at IFS, starting in consulting and finishing in research and development. His experience and knowledge are invaluable for successful ERP projects.

Based in Sri Lanka, Charith speaks two languages (English and Sinhalese), and works remotely to support our UK clients and his Change8 colleagues.

Outside of the world of tech, the father-of-two is a keen cricketer, so can often be found at the crease with his friends. He also loves nature and travel, and has ticked off destinations including Paris and Budapest

More From The Team

IFS Apps 9: upgrade to Cloud or go to Apps 10 first?

Lots of IFS customers are considering the move to Cloud. For customers of Apps 9 there’s been a question over whether to move to Apps 10 first, to get used to the new look and feel of Aurena before the bigger move to Cloud.
