Fusionex wins Malaysia Airlines project for information collaboration and data management platform

SOFTWARE solutions provider Fusionex has been awarded a contract of significant value with Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAB) to provide a group-wide data management platform that will increase work efficiency and ease of communications within its group.

MAB seeks to address the challenges encountered by its thousands of employees to work and communicate efficiently. With millions of travellers flying on MAB every month to almost 60 destinations, MAB requires a scalable platform to cope with the volume as well as complexity of data and information gathered, in MAB’s bid to better serve its customers and staff.

The platform will allow for collaboration within the company and also facilitates messaging and information sharing between employees. With all employees using the same platform, any communication, whether textual, imaging etc. would be accessible quickly and easily.

Apart from work purposes, the platform will allow employees to participate in leisure activities for an optimized work-life balance to be achieved. An enterprise social network feature will be deployed for employees to use as a social collaboration tool, in line with MAB’s objective to promote a strong and united corporate community.

Fusionex chief executive officer Ivan Teh (pic above) commented: “This initiative is applauded as it is targeted to bring Malaysia Airlines’ corporate performance to greater heights, as well as to foster closer communication among MAB employees. Coordinating thousands of employees with a huge amount of data across the globe is no small feat. This win showcases the vast potential for data management and data technology to empower a variety of sectors including aviation towards digital transformation, and we are delighted to be a part of this journey with Malaysia Airlines.” https://www.digitalnewsasia.com/digital-economy/fusionex-wins-malaysia-airlines-project-information-collaboration-and-data

Pikom inks MoU with Fusionex to achieve goal of training 20,000 data professionals

The National ICT Association of Malaysia (Pikom) has signed an MoU (memorandum of understanding) with big data analytics solution provider Fusionex for it to train local talents in the area of Big Data.

Fusionex will equip ICT professional with the right skills in line with the Government’s goal of achieving 20,000 data professionals by 2020, the organisation announced at the Pikom Leadership Summit 2017.

“We found there is a talent mismatch today as many graduates are not aware of what the industry is looking for today,” said Pikom chairman Chin Chee Seong.

“We are also working very closely with the Education Ministry and universities to design courses to align them with the demands of the tech industry.”

Fusionex managing director Datuk Seri Ivan Teh agrees, adding that many jobs of today will not be the jobs of tomorrow and the jobs of yesterday might not even exist in two or three years time.

“There is a real importance to align what the academia produces versus what the industry wants and that is an ongoing challenge and something we are really working hard to tackle now,” Teh said.

Among the skills that are in demand include data analytics and project management.


The industry body also inked an MoU with CyberSecurity Malaysia (CSM) to combat the recent rise of cyberthreats. It will give CSM access to security services and solutions from its members.

It also signed an MoUs with the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) to promote the adoption of digital platform in the travel industry.

Chin says that most SMEs (small and medium enterprises) in the travel industry have yet to embrace and reap the benefits of digitalisation.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai who officiated the event, said that with the partnership, travel and tour agents should take the opportunity to market their services online and this is a step in the right direction in embracing digital economy.

“These initiatives will certainly help in expanding opportunities for the SMEs in their respective sectors and we need to keep up and embrace change as there is a rapid convergence between the physical and digital world,” said Chin.
