ABOUT THE CIO SURVIVAL GUIDE HUB
Cloud adoption in Malaysia is on an upward trend, but Malaysian CIOs are struggling to effectively implement and manage cloud environments due to a capability gap. The gap represents a lack of experience and skills in adopting the burgeoning cloud services now available versus the legacy app-focused capabilities. The key for enterprises to effectively overcome the challenge is the need to use these new technologies effectively and to adopt a new delivery model that is flexible, scalable and cost effective rapid deployment.

About MDeC, MSC Malaysia & Digital Malaysia The Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) was incorporated in 1996 to strategically advise the Malaysian Government on legislation, policies and standards for ICT and multimedia operations as well as to oversee the development of the Malaysian Multimedia Super Corridor (now MSC Malaysia).
MSC Malaysia became the platform to nurture the growth of Malaysian Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the IT industry whilst attracting participation from global ICT companies to invest and develop cutting-edge digital and creative solutions in Malaysia.
In 2011, 15 years after the introduction and successful implementation of MSC Malaysia, MDeC’s mandate was broadened by the Prime Minister to include driving Malaysia’s transition towards a developed digital economy by 2020 through Digital Malaysia. Following this, in 2012, Digital Malaysia was officially unveiled as the national transformation programme to achieve this aim.
Founded on three strategic thrusts, Digital Malaysia is a natural progression to harness the building blocks already laid by MSC Malaysia. It will drive wealth creation, stimulate efficiency and enhance
quality-of-life by harnessing and building upon Malaysia’s varied ICT initiatives, resulting in a nation that connects and empowers government, businesses and citizens through a vibrant and demand-focused digital ecosystem.
