The annual Summit by PIKOM is aimed to inspire a new generation of leaders in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry. This year the theme that was adopted was ‘The Road to Success: Tales from Successful Leaders’. As a strong advocate for the adoption of technology as a means to improve businesses, modernize cities, and change lives for the better, Fusionex was invited to participate in the Summit, in line with its plans to drive digital transformation across the country and region.

This push to create, educate, and inspire a new generation of data professionals is in line with the MDEC’s aim to have 20,000 data professionals by the year 2020. Fusionex continues to do its part in this farsighted effort by contributing the services of its Fusionex BDA Academy, which include training courses in Data Analytics, Data Engineering, and Data Science.
Another highlight for the event was a donation being made to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS) for the Penang flood relief efforts, in an effort to foster the mindset of constantly giving back to society. Through a charity drive made up of several events, PIKOM raised RM20,000, where the amount was matched by Fusionex to raise an additional RM20,000, making it a total of RM40,000 donated to the MRCS.
“The world has gotten smaller, and is now much more interconnected. The people of today must have a global mindset. Innovation knows no boundaries. The revolution of the digital era will impact every corner of the earth,” said Fusionex CEO and Managing Director, Dato’ Seri Ivan Teh, Organizing Chairperson for this year’s Summit. “I hope this event managed to motivate and inspire everyone about the endless possibilities that this innovative industry of technology holds.”
Fusionex is an established multi-award winning data technology provider specializing in Analytics, Big Data, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Its offerings are focused on helping clients unlock the value and derive insights from data.
KUALA LUMPUR: It has been more than a year since the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) initiative was launched in Malaysia and although public attention was only revived a week ago during the launch of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd’s first regional office here, several local companies have already been hard at work making the ambitious project a reality.
Big data analytics firm Fusionex International Plc is one of them, having led a consortium which secured a contract to provide the e-Services platform for the DFTZ from the Malaysia Digital Economy Corp.
The awarding of the contract was announced in November last year and according to Fusionex, has since been up and running with more than 3,000 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) on board currently.
“More and more of [these companies] are starting to appreciate that it is important to level up and capitalise on the robust growth in e-commerce and the export market,” said Datuk Seri Ivan Teh, Fusionex founder and chief executive officer of Fusionex.
He added that many local SMEs that Fusionex has spoken to are receptive, open-minded and cognisant of the global language.
“They are open and want to embrace technology as long as it’s easier, faster, better, and more cost-effective than the status quo. In short, they are constructive but might be facing challenges in areas such as market access, funds, modern skills and technology. This is where DFTZ’s e-Services can assist them,” Teh told The Edge Financial Daily in an email exchange.
The platform is key to realising the e-World Trade Platform (eWTP) that has been one of Alibaba’s key initiatives under the DFTZ banner and aims to provide Malaysian SMEs access to global consumers via e-commerce.
“The e-Services platform functions as a one-stop digital trade facilitation platform, that is integrated with a multitude of business service platforms, e-marketplaces, government agencies, logistics providers, freight forwarders, agents, SMEs and other service providers,” said Teh.
The platform aims to “bridge the gap in terms of know-how, reduce costs, as well as avoid or minimise unnecessary delays and encumbrances associated with the old way of manually doing things,” he said, adding that it is meant to be highly scaleable and inclusive.\
According to Teh, the platform is powered by big data technologies, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning and is “designed to help merchants — regardless of shape and size — to level the playing ground, and do so without incurring exorbitant costs”.
Fusionex is also riding on the strength of Alibaba Cloud, what with being the latter’s official strategic partner in this region.
“They are a great, committed partner,” Teh said of Alibaba Cloud, noting that the collaboration is synergistic as the latter “has a great cloud offering, whereas Fusionex is a leader in big data technology, AI and machine learning with a strong international reputation.”
While fusionex founder may not be a household name to most Malaysians, it has certainly made waves overseas. The company had, until July last year, been listed on London’s Alternative Investment Market.
However, Teh had decided to take the company private after five years on the market due to what he reportedly said was a persistently undervalued stock.
Without disclosing any figures, Teh shares that Fusionex has “invested significantly” and will continue to invest as it is fully committed to ensuring the success of the e-Services platform.
He did not reveal the names of the group’s partners in its consortium, but that they are local players with the relevant expertise and experience.
Teh pointed out that like the DFTZ itself, the e-Services platform is not constrained to physical hubs such as the KL Aeropolis logistics hub being developed by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd and Cainiao Smart Logistics Network (Hong Kong) Ltd.
“e-Services will be an open platform that welcomes multiple business service providers, be it forwarding agents, logistics players, and of course very importantly, good local SMEs with great Malaysian products.”
“The cost benefits and efficiencies these players enjoy would ultimately trickle down to consumers [in the form of] faster, more efficient and more cost-effective products and fulfilment,” he said.

Instruction is actually usually the very first step, observed through enlisting in a trained power education and learning course at either a neighborhood university or even field university. After satisfying the job hrs and also learning certifications an assessment or even tests are actually commonly the last measure just before having the ability to obtain your journeyman or even expert domestic electrician certificate.

Power codes are actually improved a minimum of every handful of years as well as electric programs must maintain. Along with sun and also wind electricity obtaining in appeal there are actually likewise programs for domestic electrician Singaporeto maintain all of them on the reducing upper hand of modern technology as well as give all of them a lot more options for job.
Lots of people presume that electrical contractor’s only take cable as well as hook up changes to lightings and also channels. The project of an electrical contractor really calls for lots of hrs of knowledge as well as thousands of hrs of concentrated instruction and also education and learning just before having the capacity to service their very own or even possess their very own electric recruiting company.
Electrical expert programs as well as job expertise demands differ relying on condition or even city government.

This indicates that you might need to have to become certified in numerous urban areas or even areas so as to function as an electrical expert in each.
What this definitely boils down to, is actually that you ought to take into account that there are actually numerous options around one thing. Oh, which you need to possess your pipelines frequently inspected, simply in the event that.
The pitter-pattering of cracks combined along with the sprinting of rodents’ feets can easily occasionally make up the creepy audio of shaking establishments. If you presume that it is actually fairly unlikely, simply envision what a singular, thin decline of water on a steel surface area might seem like if it was actually amplified through mirrors after mirrors throughout the below ground pipelines.
Possibly, however, perhaps certainly not. You will be actually amazed at what negative plumbing system can possibly do to a house-enough to make it appear that our home was actually possessed through bogeys craving blood stream!
Individuals discount the suggestion of possessed properties. Furnishings carrying on their very own, macabre appeals during the course of advanced hrs, disembodies grumbling vocals as well as disturbing chains-the common tales. These are actually the accounts that were actually implied to frighten youngsters right into their beds-stories that are actually mainly fear as well as mythology. Within this current and also grow older, undoubtedly those accounts are actually merely ordinary platitudes, right?
Mirrors may additionally figure in making that supernatural, incorporeal grumbling noise. The thrill of sky inside an echoing steel pipeline may make a range of noises, relying on the rate of the sky going through. A slower movement can create a reduced, dark-toned groan, while fast hurrying warm air (just like your house’s radiator pipes device) can easily make a piercing, banshee-like shriek.
What journeys inside the set of water pipes below your house is actually certainly not simply water. Sky may additionally journey in pipelines, as well as sometimes, bugs like cockroaches as well as rodents. Each of these factors generate audio when they hurry to as well as coming from the water pipes, as well as while many noises are actually stifled due to the miles-long proximity of void in between the water pipes, some may execute vents as well as drains pipes.

Like what was actually mentioned, perhaps, however, possibly certainly not. While it holds true that some supernatural-seeming situations may be clarified through science-and a straightforward understanding of exactly how pipelines work-it can easily certainly not be actually merely presumed that none of the various other stated plagued residences are actually brought on by transcendent creatures. You must admit-no concern exactly how poor the plumber Singaporesystem of a property can easily receive, it can easily certainly not result in furnishings to proceed its very own, or even result in females in white colored outfits to show up in ghostly stairs in the course of the moon.

The typical mindset when considering IT outsourcing partners is to look far away, but it may be more beneficial to find a neighboring team through nearshore opportunities and not just because of the usual benefits.
There’s no debating the value of outsourcing as it pertains to software development. In the NextGen Global Outsourcing Survey conducted by Deloitte, 78 percent of respondents indicated that they feel positive about their outsourcing relationship and the advantages it offers.
There are many different types of IT outsourcing services, some of which are more common than others and provide greater value, depending on your goals for outsourcing. Nearshore software development, for example, is an extension of the outsourcing industry that does have its differences from conventional applications like offshoring.
What is nearshore development and how is it different?
Conventional IT outsourcing involves a direct relationship with a third-party or “provider” outside of your company or team. Outsourcing is a general term that encompasses varying degrees of third-party engagement.
For instance, inshore and offshore are two separate forms of outsourcing. Inshore means you’re working with a third-party located in the same country as your business or organization, while offshore means exactly the opposite. Then there’s dualshore, which is a hybrid of the two — teams are often split between separate locations.
Comparably, nearshore is a similar concept where you’re still working with a third-party; only they’re are located in a neighboring country or region. For instance, a U.S. based company working with another party in North or South America would be a nearshore engagement.
It may seem similar, and by all rights it is, but there are some exclusive benefits of adopting a nearshore relationship as opposed to offshore or even inshore.
[MORE INFORMATION: Need to know more about managing your outsourcing partnership? We’ve got answers.]
Traditional benefits of nearshore software development
For North American based companies, nearshore development relationships with Latin America partners are particularly attractive.
For starters, time zones remain relatively similar. This is a direct improvement over conventional offshore outsourcing because there are considerable challenges whenworking with a partner or company that operates under a separate time zone. This can also hinder direct relationships and communication when you have a 12 hour difference or more, especially when collaboration hinges on prompt or immediate responses, like it outsourcing.
As PSL Corp says, “we are in the Americas, [so] we can be agile because we are awake when you are awake.” That’s exactly true when it comes to nearshore partners.
Also, because the region is similar, there are fewer language and cultural barriers to work through. You may be working with a partner in Colombia, as is common with nearshore relationships, with workers who use proper English, and live in a near identical time zone.
In fact, working with companies located in Colombia is a good move for any company considering outsourcing. According to the Global Location Services Index, which measures the suitability for outsourcing services by looking at metrics that indicate which countries display the, “strongest underlying fundamentals.” Colombia ranks 10th on the list, up 10 slots from 2016.
Then, of course, there are much lower rates or costs associated with outsourced development. In fact, lower operating costs are one of the major reasons any organization or business decides to outsource IT and software development. A whopping 59 percent of businesses cite that “cost-cutting” is the primary reason for outsourcing projects.
In Latin and South America, highly skilled programmers or developers work at much cheaper hourly rates. In these countries the average wage is already lower because the cost of living is lower, but often the local currency is weaker than the American dollar. Essentially, this means you get much more for a lot less when you choose a suitable outsourcing partner. This also happens to be what provides nearshore IT development a leg over inshore or local outsourcing and development opportunities.
But, there’s more to it than that
The benefits of outsourcing, and developing a long-term partnership with the right provider, go a long way in allowing companies to innovate and maximize performance. One way this becomes possible is by investing the money saved into R&D, making it possible to innovate faster. The other possibility is by outsourcing the non-essential items and allowing your skilled teams to focus on what they do best.
Then, there’s another way, evidenced by the responses in the Deloitte’s Global Outsourcing survey. “Some companies, [35%] for instance, look to their service providers to help them capture and integrate marketplace advances, such as tapping creative methods for improving quality and enhancing the user experience, to propel competitive advantage at a velocity they could not otherwise achieve by themselves. The savviest organizations use their providers to help them find, filter, and manage the many transformative products and services the marketplace invents to improve business performance.”
Your nearshoring partner is not just another vendor, but rather a valued partner committed to innovation and anticipating and working towards achieving shared goals. It makes sense, what’s good for you is good for them. More and more, these relationships are becoming crucial to the success of organizations. Find the right partner and start innovating, the success of your organization depends on it.
Say “yes” to those nearshore outsourcing opportunities
Despite its many benefits, many companies or teams overlook the idea of nearshore IT outsourcing. The typical mindset dictates that “outsourcing” means shipping the work far away, such as to a completely different continent in the far East.
Just be aware that’s not necessarily the case, and you can definitely find a suitable partner or collaborator in a neighboring country.

Let us help you face your most complex software engineering challenges by deploying high performance outsourcing teams in your same time-zone. https://www.pslcorp.com/it-outsourcing-services-companies/

Is Software Application Outsourcing the Answer to Your Software Application Issues?
Figuring out whether software application outsourcing is the answer to your software problems is not always a tough concern to address however it is a concern which includes careful factor to consider. There are a series of questions which ought to be asked to help evaluate whether or not nearshore software development is a wise choice in a private situation. Examples of a few of the questions which should be asked are:
* Exist internal employee experienced enough to fix the software application issue?
* Do present workloads enable internal employee to toil on this issue?
* How costly will it be to outsource the work?
* Exactly what are the benefits of outsourcing the problem?
* What are the significant drawback to outsourcing the work?
This article will examine each of these questions and supply understanding into how these concerns can be utilized to assist make this extremely crucial option.
The Abilities of In-house Personnel Members
” IT Outsourcing and globalization of production allows companies to reduce costs, advantages customers with lower cost goods and services, triggers economic expansion that reduces joblessness, and increases productivity and job production.” https://www.pslcorp.com
Many software issues demand profoundly specialized experience to repair the issues. It is regularly the case that a business’s internal employee do not possess the abilities of fixing these software application concerns. When this occurs software application outsourcing to a professional is the indisputable option. However, in circumstances where the internal staff members are experienced enough to repair the problem, the concern of whether or not to outsource becomes more complex.
Those tasked with figuring out the choice often weight the choices by taking into consideration the expenditure of software outsourcing versus the speed at which the problem would be repaired in both cases. If there is an authority easily available to tackle the issue it will probably be fixed comparatively quickly. That said, if internal staff members are presently overburdened, they may not have the ability to make this issue a high priority.
The Work of In-house Personnel Members
The work of internal staff members usually comes into concern when taking a look at whether to contract out a particular software associated job or jobs. In the previous segment we talked about the value of software outsourcing when the internal team member are not experienced enough for certain tasks. Nevertheless, this is not many times the circumstance. Regularly in-house team member are completely efficient in achieving a task but they are not able to do so because of their present workload. In a circumstance when all of the internal staff members are unavailable to take on extra tasks, software outsourcing once again becomes a practical choice.
” The other part of outsourcing is this: it just states where the work can be done outside better than it can be done inside, we ought to do it.”
~ ~ Alphonso Jackson– Secretary of the United States Department of Real Estate and Urban Development
Will Software Application Outsourcing Conserve Cash?
One of the primary factors companies think about when they contemplate software outsourcing is whether or not they will save loan by software outsourcing. Employing an authority on an agreement basis can certainly be expensive but it is regularly a profitable investment particularly for extremely specialized tasks. The cost of software application outsourcing is normally greater in terms of the hourly pay of the staff member however overall the overall exspense may be lowered. When considering tasks performed by internal staff members it is exceptionally crucial to understand the cost of the work consists of the employee’s per hour wage, the expense of benefits such as social security, Medicare and workers’ comp and resources such as workplace, hardware, office supplies and extra incidentals. After considering all these expenses it ends up being crystal clear that software application outsourcing isn’t always the more expensive selection.
An extra element to consider when determining the expenses of software application outsourcing is how rapidly the issue can be fixed by contracting out rather than handling the issue in-house. This will hang on the capabilities and availability of the in-house employees. If there is not a capable worker easily offered it may take substantially longer to handle the problem in-house.
The Advantages of Software Application Outsourcing
At last, the benefits of software outsourcing have to be considered in choosing whether or not to contract out specific jobs. We have actually formerly touched on a few of the benefits of software application outsourcing but for the benefit of efficiency we will incorporate a list of a few of the most considerable benefits listed below:
* Reduced labor expenditures
* Access to market specialists
* Versatility in scheduling
* Increased manpower
With a lot of benefits it is totally clear that software outsourcing can be a practical option to lots of software application issues. The bottom line in picking whether to contract out a specific software problem frequently includes comparing the benefits of contracting out to the costs of software outsourcing.
Even China’s wunderkind billionaire Jack Ma was amazed at how quickly Malaysia set up its Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ), complete with the 1,900 enterprises needed to start it up.
Promised as the best thing to happen for Malaysian small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in a long while, the DFTZ is seen as a way for small companies to ride on the coat-tails of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd — one of the world’s biggest tech companies — and reach markets they usually would not otherwise.
“With DFTZ, small businesses can use the digital way to sell and buy things. They can also buy global and sell global,” said the Alibaba founder and executive chairman at the launch early this month.
SMEs will mainly see the benefit of easier customs clearance, currency conversions, as well as a dedicated hub to send and receive goods at the DFTZ’s e-fulfilment hub being built near the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang.
Officially to be known as the “KLIA Aeropolis DFTZ Park”, the hub is expected to double Malaysia’s air cargo volume to 1.3 million tonnes a year within 10 years.
This can be achieved because Alibaba plans to make Malaysia its regional hub that will be part of Ma’s Electronic World Trade Platform.
“The KLIA Aeropolis DFTZ Park will optimise border clearance and handling from six hours to three hours, with 90% service level agreement and improve cargo terminal operations from four hours to 90 minutes,” said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak at the launch.
Another component of the DFTZ will have nothing to do with cargo, and will be physically located at its services hub being built as part of the Bandar Malaysia project in Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur.
The services hub is planned to be a creative and conducive environment where startups can be created and prosper.
Taken together, the two components are expected to make huge contributions to the economy.
Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd chief economist Dr Mohd Afzanizam Abdul Rashid said the DFTZ and its network will enable Malaysian SMEs to expand and tap into a larger market, and hence, increase revenues.
“The government will benefit from all this activity in both tax and non-tax revenues, while at the same time, creating more high-skilled jobs and using state-of-the art technology which can be gross domestic product-accretive in the long run,” he said.
“Implemented properly, the whole project will produce more Malaysian entrepreneurs as a side effect.”
The first project at the satellite services hub will be the Kuala Lumpur Internet City (KLIC) which will be developed through another strategic partner, Catcha Group.
The KLIC will be the centre for creating and marketing Internet-related services specifically for the South-East Asian market.
It will group together companies that would provide a complete eco-system for companies to create, develop and market products for the Internet and e-commerce platform.
“DFTZ will encourage the development of more startups, as well as SMEs that focus on technology and the digital or mobile sector,” an analyst said.
“DFTZ also improves our local technology, products and services as there will be a healthy competition and accessible business knowledge for them as the result of technology.”
Sunway University Business School economics Professor Dr Yeah Kim Leng said its close connection with a US$400 billion (RM1.67 trillion) company will virtually ensure that DFTZ will be successful.
“DFTZ will act as a regional distribution hub for Alibaba, becomes part of its logistic supply chain to the e-commerce sector which will encourage companies from Malaysia and China.
“Our local companies will leverage on this platform provided by Alibaba, to reach the world markets,” Yeah said.
He said the tough pre-requisites to become a DFTZ-registered company will ensure that those companies gain a valuable branding standard that is accepted globally.

FUSIONEX International Plc, a big data analytics solutions provider, believes that its new big data analytics solution can help the company to win more clients and gain market share.
The analytics solution, known as Fusionex GIANT, allows companies to have a holistic view of its business operations, understand trends, buyers behavior, and even predict outcomes. Unlike larger big data companies from the US or Europe, the company’s big data solutions are more user-friendly and easier to deploy.
“Our solutions may not be as powerful as some of our rivals’, but it has the features and characteristics that meets the needs of the chief executive officer, the chief information officer, and chief financial officer,” Fusionex Ivan Teh told Digital News Asia recently.
“Today, CEOs want a fast-to-deploy big data solutions, they can’t wait 18 months or more for the implementation. CIOs and CFOs want a solutions that are easy to manage, easy to use, and does not cost a lot to maintain.”
According to Teh, the new GIANT, dubbed the Fusionex GIANT 2017, is far more superior than the predecessor. He said that it is now able to make sense of trillions of data sets — making it a suitable tool for banks, stockbroking firms, hotel chains, manufacturers and others.
Like the previous version, the GIANT allows users to get key insights by just ‘drag-and-drop’. For example, dragging the company’s sales data and customers data could allow the company to find out which particular products are more popular among the young working adults.
“More importantly, the new GIANT allows user to get insights in the easiest way possible — by talking to it. The new GIANT comes with a natural language processing (NLP) capability that will perform various tasks. For example, you simply only need to tell it to show you sales number, or sales number based on region, and those data will be produced immediately,” said Teh.
“Gone are the days when you need days or weeks to generate a report.”
Penetrating the SMEs
The company also introduced its first big data analytics solutions catered to the small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
The product, dubbed ANT, is the “mini-version” of the GIANT. It has most of the features SMEs need when comes to making sense of their data.
“For a long time, the SME market has been underserved. It also has most of the features that SMEs are looking for.
Expecting strong response
In late 2016, Fusionex invited 10 companies to take part in the pilot run of the Fusionex GIANT 2017. From the 10 companies, 8 of them have already signed up for the solution.
“Our vision has always been to create innovative technology that meets the business needs of today’s market. Innovation drives growth and we strongly believe Fusionex GIANT 2017 is the answer to an IoT driven world that is in constant need of better, faster, cost optimised and commercially-feasible technology,” said Teh.
“Analytics can help bridge the gap between business and consumer needs and we are ready to assist our customers to stand above their competition.”
