From inception, the institute had emphasized the building up and use of advanced systems and services through its own initiatives, innovations and applications. This is unparalleled in most institutions of the country. Procuring essentially the basic servers, systems and some key productivity and applications software, using free and open source software, the institute has put together a formidable variety of complex systems, solutions and services ranging from multimedia services, online library services, GIS, e-learning suites, wiki, discussion forums to advanced cluster computing systems – all accessible over platform independent browsers. In the process, our professional staff have become highly proficient in developing and servicing complex systems. These are used regularly with the faculty and staff enjoying terminally mobile information – interaction and collaboration environment and knowledge centre. As byproduct of this, we support technology incubation, students’ projects and exploratory projects that lead to sponsored projects in due course.

The Sun Cluster comprises Sun Blade 150 Workstation 650 MHz UltraSPARC-III, SUN FIRE 280 R server and SunRay 100 Network Appliances – 25 Nos. There are two Compaq Prolient servers, with a memory of 512 MB and 260 Giga Byte of HDD, which mainly acts as the Gateway to the Internet World. There are three more Pentium III servers, network attached storage server with RAID 5 that can host more than 80 Giga bytes of data. The three Linux servers along with IIITMK portal, EduGrid portals are running round the clock. The servers support 110 computers under one network and domain.

Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management - Kerala (IIITM-K) is a non-profit making autonomous institution registered under Section 8 (old Section 25) Companies Act 2013 and the management of the Institute is vested with Board of Directors comprising eminent industrialists,academicians & senior Government officials appointed by the Government of Kerala.

Information Technology is an important tool for development of different areas of knowledge economy. India is emerging as a global player in the field of Information Technology. There has been a steady rise of software and IT sector in India since 1990’s. As the IT industry is expanding rapidly, manpower requirement is growing exponentially. In order to develop manpower for different areas of the knowledge economy, education and training of information technology is a core prerequisite. The MHRD department of Central Government has decided to start IIITs in different states.

Government of Kerala is always in the forefront for providing quality education and has excelled in the sphere of literacy and has been a guiding example and inspiration for the other states in India. Realizing the growth of IT sector and the need for highly trained manpower within the state, the state has taken positive steps towards establishing leadership in the fast growing Information Technology field, a high-power committee consisting of leading figures of Industry, Academia and Government was constituted by the Government of Kerala, to initiate steps towards establishing a premier institute of Information Technology and Management. Based on the deliberations of the committee, the Government of Kerala decided to set up the Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management-Kerala (IIITM-K).

The Honorable Governor of Kerala, Sri Sukhdev Singh Kang, formally inaugurated the institute on November 23, 2000 and the foundation stone laid by Shri. A P J Abdul Kalam. The Government of Kerala has constituted a Board of Directors chaired by Shri K. P. P. Nambiar and invited Prof. K R Srivathsan, who was the Head of the Electrical Engineering Department at the Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur (IIT-K) as its founding Director.

The first batch of students was admitted in the month of March 2001 for the coveted Postgraduate Diploma in Information Technology (PGDIT) of 18 months duration. The convocation of the first batch of students was held on April 7,2003. Shri F C Kohli, a father figure for the IT industry in India, awarded the degrees to this pioneer batch of students. The leading Indian software giant, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is the creation of Sri Kohli who built the company virtually from scratch way back in 1960s when software was even not heard of.

The first batch PGDIT students were enthusiastically received by the software industries and almost all of them got excellent placements in reputed IT companies. 9 batches were passed out from the institute with flying colours and almost all of them well placed in top IT firms and other organizations.
