My aspiration is for ISS to build on its strengths as it continues to focus on nurturing leaders, transforming businesses, and developing practical ICT skills to enable the future economy, expand and deepen industry engagements, and to be the centre of excellence for all things digital and tech for continuing education in Singapore.
From its beginnings in 1981, ISS has helped to educate and train people for the Information Age, creating a bridge to where we want to be in the future. It is a journey, and ISS will continue to prepare the ICT leaders of tomorrow, today.
ISS was there when the country took its first concerted step to push for an IT agenda. ISS was the institution that trained the first batches of IT professionals that led the nation in implementing our IT master plan. ISS was a pioneering effort. The spirit of being in the forefront, playing a critical role in the nation’s IT development has never left ISS. It has had many firsts, and will continue to innovate.
I presided over the period when old ISS was merged with ITI and new ISS was spun out. It was a period of change; it was a difficult period for people because it had operated in this way for 10 over years. The report card, as it turned out, was quite good. I think ISS has found its own niche since separation.
I hope ISS will always be a key pillar, a leading IT architect in updating, spearheading and reinventing our IT and ICT manpower strategies in Singapore and the region. After all, whether Singapore will be able to transform itself into a knowledge-based economy and information society depends a lot on our ability to nurture innovators and early adopters. This is a very important challenge for ISS and Singapore.
ISS is inseparable with the national computerisation effort of Singapore since its inception. With various versions of the national IT plan, ISS is able to make itself relevant and this includes IT education, consulting and R&D. Our vibrant startup culture can be traced back to that phase of ISS development when IT R&D was part of its mission integrating Information Technology Institute of the National Computer Board. As we evolve our Intelligent Island to become a smart nation, ISS still has much to contribute.
It was a collective effort, driven consistently by enthusiasm and excitement. It was a time of striking out into untested areas with only common sense and inspiration as guide. That it had succeeded was purely fortuitous and certainly not confidently anticipated.
