NCS, a leading Info-Communication Technology (ICT) provider in Asia Pacific launched today the NCS Technology Evolution book to commemorate the Nation’s IT transformation from the very beginning of Singapore’s computerisation journey.

“The history of NCS is closely intertwined with Singapore’s IT story, from the start of computerisation in the early 1980s to the new era in the digital age. We are deeply committed and will continue to provide our fullest support as Singapore stands at the cusp of another exciting transformation – its re-invention as the world’s first Smart Nation,” said Chia Wee Boon, CEO of NCS.

Through the lens of NCS’ history, this book will take you back to the very beginning of Singapore’ computerisation journey, when IT pioneers like Minister Lim Swee Say, Philip Yeo and Dr Tan Chin Nam helped seed and steer a massive effort to computerise Singapore’s civil service.

NCS will be donating the NCS Technology Evolution to the National Library Board (NLB) as part of Singapore’s jubilee year celebration.

The public may visit the public libraries and discover Singapore’s IT transformation journey over the past five decades.

Copies of the NCS Tech Evolution will be available at the public libraries by 30 June, 2015.
