TM Research & Development Sdn Bhd bagged the ‘Chairman’s Award’ at the recent WITSA ICT Excellence Awards organised by WITSA, the World Information Technology and Services Alliance, a consortium of ICT industry association members from over 80 countries and economies.
“The work that TM R&D has done is truly at the cutting edge of technology. This is an amazing accolade as the Chairman’s Award is the highest award in WITSA,” said Cheah Kok Hoong (pic), chairman of the National ICT Association of Malaysia (Pikom).
Pikom had led the Malaysia delegation to the World Congress on IT (WCIT) in Guadalajara, Mexico, the association said in a statement.
The Malaysian delegation included representatives from national ICT custodian Multimedia Development Corp, Malaysia Debt Ventures, Cyberview and Telekom Malaysia.
“It is the first time we have won the highest WITSA award. Pikom is proud of the achievement as it is testament of the strength of innovation in Malaysia’s ICT industry,” Cheah said.
Malaysia also took home two subsidiary prizes, with MDT Innovations Sdn Bhd and Soft Space International Sdn Bhd winning merit awards.
During the WITSA general assembly, Pikom was also awarded the right to host WCIT in 2020. In 2008, Pikom hosted the first WCIT in this region, saying that it attracted 3,313 delegates from over 80 countries.
At the same meeting, Pikom advisor David Wong was elected to the WITSA board. He is also chairman of Outsourcing Malaysia, a chapter of Pikom, and was chairman of the association during WCIT in 2008.
