Oracle has launched a new Cloud Solution Hub in Kuala Lumpur to help organizations of all sizes, particularly Small and Medium Enterprises, to benefit from technologies such as Blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT), Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Data Analytics and Autonomous Databases. The hub is also working with local government agencies to accelerate their digital transformation strategies
Oracle Malaysia has been recruiting experienced and highly trained cloud consultants to fill close to 150 new positions for this new facility. The hub is being developed to include a regional technical cloud center focused on delivering industry 4.0 solutions to enable more companies to adopt innovative and customized applications. Previously the company had launched a digital hub, back in 2017.
The Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI) officiated the launch mentioning MITI’s ambition to create an innovation ecosystem to enable digital transformation for Malaysian businesses – SMEs are a key focus for digitalization as 9 out of 10 businesses in the country are of that size, and represent more than two-thirds of the economy.
Oracle’s activities seem to be aligned with this vision, as the company and InvestKL, an investment promotion agency under MITI, are collaborating to encourage Malaysian businesses to improve their competitiveness by embracing technology and innovation. The company’s Oracle Academy, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility project also supports industry 4.0, as it offers computing education and resources to educators. To date, the program has reached more than 45,000 students across the country.
