According to a recent report, a major Malaysian software firm launched a Cloud Solution Hub in Kuala Lumpur.

Supported by a range of state-of-art tools and facilities, the cloud solution hub will help organisations of all sizes, particularly small and medium enterprises (SMEs) understand how they can harness emerging technologies like Blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT), Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Data Analytics, and Autonomous Databases to drive business value and growth.

The firm’s cloud solutions have seen strong adoption across the Asia-Pacific region; the firm will be expanding its premises substantially to accommodate this new cloud solution hub.

The firm has been actively recruiting to fulfil close to 150 new allocations for experienced and highly-trained cloud consultants, specifically for this new facility.

To drive further growth, the hub is being developed to include a regional technical cloud centre focused on delivering industry 4.0 solutions to enable more companies to adopt innovative and customised applications.

This cloud solution hub in Kuala Lumpur comes after Oracle Malaysia established a digital hub in September 2017.

Malaysia’s Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI) who officiated the launch, stated that the heart of Industry 4.0 is a set of rapidly evolving and converging technologies that can help transform the way we live and ultimately how businesses work to improve their overall competitiveness.

By welcoming establishments and investments by leading multinational technology giants like the software firm into the local market, MITI aims to create an innovation ecosystem to enable a seamless digital transformation journey for Malaysian businesses, especially the SMEs.

The digitalisation of SMEs remains a key focus for the country’s economy because 9 out of 10 businesses in Malaysia are SMEs which represents over two-thirds of the nation’s economy.

Aligned with Malaysia’s transformation roadmap into Industry 4.0, Oracle and InvestKL (an Investment Promotion Agency under MITI), are working together to encourage Malaysian businesses to innovate and improve their overall competitiveness.

Embracing new technologies and digitally transforming their business operations will enable local SMEs to compete more effectively in the global world.

The Managing Director of the firm stated that said the firm been present in Malaysia for over 30 years. Already the Hub has enabled the firm to work with local government agencies and enterprises to accelerate their digital transformation strategies through its latest technologies.

The firm looks forward to deepening its collaboration with the Malaysian government and businesses as they continue to support its customers across the region through this Hub.

The firm was congratulated on its cloud solution hub and look forward to the growth of additional high-value jobs and services activities. The firm’s continuous investments demonstrate its confidence in Malaysia as a hub to move up the value chain in terms of cloud and data technology, and enabling it to ride on the region’s robust growth opportunities from Kuala Lumpur.

The company’s Chief Executive Officer stated that it will continue its strong support and collaboration on their regional journey that will greatly benefit Malaysia’s digital economy in widening the high skilled talent pool, increasing employment opportunities, and strengthening economic growth.
