Like many a one-day cricket match in which more runs are scored in the later overs , we saw a major part of action from our Section in the past three months ( March , April and May 2018 ).

We also had , at Mu Sigma , ITPL , the last Tech talk in the series with the theme ‘ Extracting Value from Data - Reaping the Tangible Benefits of (I)IOT

ISA members are professionals involved in their career and personal goals. But some of them volunteer extra time and energy to assist in the section activities as Office bearers and Executive Committee members. We have an article in this issue on their motivation and experiences.
