While Malaysians are generally digitally savvy and connected, there are challenges that still need to be addressed to transform the nation into a digital economy, according to a panel discussion organised by national ICT custodian Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC).
MDeC will be holding four events in conjunction with the fourth Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) which be held in Kuala Lumpur from Oct 11-12.
DNA founder and CEO Karamjit Singh has decided that ‘How’s business?’ is a question which he refuses to get used to. He explains why.
The Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) said that since its launch in July 2012, the initial eight projects under Digital Malaysia have cumulatively contributed RM288 million (US$87.8 million) in Gross National Income (GNI) and saw the creation of 3,335 high-value jobs.
An announcement may be made today that MDeC is going to be moved to the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia from its current ‘home’ in the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation; Karamjit Singh explores the implications.
Plans are underway to move MSC Malaysia’s Shared Services and Outsourcing (SSO) Cluster up the value chain by concentrating on high value Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO) services.
In Part 3 of his interview with MDeC CEO Badlisham Ghazali, DNA’s Karamjit Singh asks if there have been too many reorganisations and if the goal of hitting three companies with US$500mil revenue a year is gone.
National Instruments has been accepted as a technology partner for MDeC's ‘Grow the Embedded Systems Industry’ project, one of the initial entry point projects under the Digital Malaysia programme.
The intense and inseparable relationship the Generation Y segment has with their smartphones and staying connected was further underlined by the findings of a recent survey by Cisco.
The national ICT association of Malaysia (Pikom) announced a three-in-one technology fair, maintaining it remains “the voice of the ICT industry” and that such fairs were part of its mission to promote the local industry.
