Malaysia is quickly maturing into a fully-fledged Cloud Computing hub. A total of MYR 21.6 bn was assigned to the National Fiberisation & Connectivity Plan (NFCP) in and 2020 and has seen developments throughout 2021.
As the roll-out of 5G connectivity throughout Malaysia accelerates towards a head, the resulting high-speed access from NFCP, allows for a total evolution of how businesses exist in the digital sphere.
At the very heart of the question of the rise in Cloud Technologies in Malaysia, is the market position that the country has its sights on.
With its expansive terrain, and proximity to relatively developed cloud computing hubs such as Singapore, Malaysia has begun to tease at challenging mature markets.
Recognising this yet to be maximised window of growth, global players like Alibaba have shrewdly moved to set-up operations in Malaysia, with other companies such as Microsoft recently following suit.
Join us at The Malaysia Cloud and Datacenter Convention 2021 (MYCDC2021) to be at the forefront of the discussion the massive game-changing developments in the industry, and the reverberations it carries for all major players in Malaysia’s Cloud Ecosystem.

Keynote Presentation: The Implementation of Malaysia 5.0 on the 4IR Technologies
Malaysia has the opportunity to re-engineer the human experience using technologies by transiting into Malaysia 5.0 and directly addresses financial inclusion, access, performance and growth through the 4IR tools. 4IR represents new ways in which technology can be embedded within societies. The integration of robotics, machine learning, AI, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, financial technology (fintech), data analytics and drone technology with the synergy of 5G infrastructure will displace conventional technology and significantly alter the way consumers, industries and businesses operate. In this session, we will look into how the 4IR technologies will transform and develop from the implementation.

Case Study: The Current State of Data Sovereignty and Localization in Malaysia
People are effectively relying on either international regulation, or blind trust in the self-policing of data storage firms. With proper data sovereignty policies, the jurisdiction falls to the government, which should safeguard the protection of it’s citizen’s data. For years, our data practices in both the public and private sectors have been sufficient. However, continuing in such a state will hamper Malaysia’s nation’s efforts in building a well-rounded digital economy. For example, oil and gas players that conduct maritime subsurface scanning. The data collected is highly sensitive, with an impact on national security. However, such data is exported out of the country to be processed because the technology for this is still not available in Malaysia. This panel discussion will explore what are the considerations when navigating Malaysia’s data sovereignty ecosystem.
Keynote Presentation : Going Hybrid: How Malaysia businesses are Balancing On and Off-Prem
Closing Panel Discussion: Next Generation Green Data Centers : Performance Metrics and Sustainability
Green data centre (GDC) as an enterprise class computing facility is entirely built, managed and operated on green computing principles. Global technology companies are constantly challenged on how to make data centres more energy efficient in a growingly digital economy. The main challenge in Malaysia is the reluctance of businesses to try unconventional methods of air flow and power management, despite the return of significant savings. Thus, in this topic, we will look into different types of reliable metrics to create a green dc environment.
