DIGITAL INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM

CATALYSING DIGITAL INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM

The future lies in innovation, and at MDEC, we believe that being ahead of the technology curve is the way to future-proof businesses. Big Data Analytics (BDA), the Internet of Things (IoT), E-Commerce, and Data Centre & Cloud are our key focus areas that have been identified as catalysts that will kickstart and sustain an ecosystem of digital innovation, keeping us at the forefront of technology.

Focus Areas

Big Data Analytics (BDA)

Unleash the full capabilities of Big Data in this digital revolution. Unlock it's vast potential & identify new opportunities today.

Data Centre & Cloud

Utilise Malaysia's strategically located data centre parks. Subscribe to world-class data management services today.

Big Data Analytics

Malaysia is one of the few countries with a structured BDA roadmap to fully unleash the value of big data. Business owners, government, and citizens all stand to gain from Malaysia's vision as ASEAN’s leading BDA solution hub.

Our strategic initiatives are:

  • Proliferating the usage of BDA in private sector.
  • Catalysing the adoption and usage of BDA in public sectors.
  • Building the BDA industry in Malaysia.

Data Centre & Cloud

MDEC is positioning Malaysia as a regional hub for data centre and cloud services by leveraging on various factors such as cost efficiency, availability of skilled workers and a strong foundation of data governance laws.

Supported by world-class infrastructure, we work to strengthen our local data cloud players by offering regionally competitive, high-value services. MDEC also facilitates the growth of data centre parks for large data cloud service providers and consumers.

e-Commerce

Expand market access to accomodate rising digital buyers. Tap into the booming world of online transaction today.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Ride the wave of technology integration in our daily lives. Take the power of connectivity to the next level today.

Ecommerce

ECommerce is a critical stepping block to “future proof” existing businesses as well as “expand market access". Despite a strong internet culture where half of the population are digital buyers, Malaysia is still at a nascent stage in terms of the maturity of the e-commerce ecosystem development.

According to A.T. Kearney findings under the National e-Commerce Strategic Roadmap, Malaysia is now in the inflection point of e-commerce growth which must be accelerated through government intervention to resolve the following issues:

  • Lack of offerings;
  • Poor fulfilment experience;
  • Low adoption and awareness; and
  • Lack of supporting ecosystem.

It is imperative for Malaysia to move beyond the nascent stage via strong support and focused Government interventions to leapfrog into the growth stage.

Hence, through our efforts such as #MYCYBERSALE which was started in 2014, we have achieved RM67 million GMV in 2014 and RM117 million GMV in 2015, through close cooperation via our e-commerce ecosystem players, thereby transforming Malaysia’s e-commerce landscape.

In addition, the National e-Commerce Strategic Roadmap was developed to double the e-commerce growth rate from 10.8% to 20.8% (in year 2020) via specific government interventions along the Six Strategic Thrusts as follows:

  • Accelerate seller adoption of eCommerce
  • Increase adoption of e-Procurement by businesses
  • Lift non-tariff barriers
  • Realign existing economic incentives
  • Make strategic investments in selected eCommerce player(s)
  • Promote national brand to boost cross-border eCommerce

IoT

IoT offers insight into how consumers are incorporating technology in their day-to-day, data which in turn offers valuable insight which can be utilised in various domains. As such, we have focused our efforts on key verticals that we believe will not only increase the adoption and growth of IoT in Malaysia, but change the way they operate. This includes, but is not limited to, Smart Agriculture, Smart Manufacturing, Smart Transportation, and Public Safety.

Our strategic initiatives are:

  1. Industry Development, that ensures IoT companies remain globally competitive at an optimised value in order to drive industry demand.
  2. Digital Transformation, that facilitates the proliferation of IoT in government, businesses, and citizens.
  3. Ecosystem Development, that builds and sustains IoT's enabling environment.
