Managing flexible, reliable, and simple solutions for digital government services

The use of cloud computing in global government, business, and academic settings is accelerating. Malaysia is one nation that is embracing cloud computing at a rapid rate, driven by the expansion of digital transformation and other trends in the region.

To evaluate prospects for cloud adoption as well as the open issues that will serve as the foundation for future study, it is necessary to flesh out current patterns and efforts in the use of cloud computing technology in the country.

Malaysia must continue to reform, or it will fall behind in the increasingly cutthroat digital economy. Public cloud adoption and working on its complexities must be embraced because it raises living standards and economic success. In the long run, digitalisation will also contribute to sustainable growth.

Citizen experiences at the forefront

Customer-first applications can be created, tested, and released globally without fear of disrupting the system. The organisation’s IT staff must be able to develop and build on a reliable, consistent platform created by cloud-like deployments. Enhancement of consumer experiences across all market categories is achieved by introducing cutting-edge products that greatly simplify dealing with public services.

Combining the dependability of a typical on-premise data centre with the seamless functionality of public cloud allows for increased resilience and business continuity while conveniently sustaining uptime.

Reduced complexities in hindsight

By looking beyond legacies, organisations must upgrade data centre infrastructure to balance on-site and "within-cloud" activities in order to construct next-generation infrastructure.

The complex demands of IT can no longer be met by a traditional infrastructure that is cumbersome, doesn't give DevOps a solid base, can't scale up significantly, and is prone to bottlenecks. In order to maintain their competitiveness and make sure their data centres are prepared for the cloud, organisations are choosing hyper-converged infrastructure more and more frequently today.

Several IT developments in the region, including increased demands for automation, sustainability, and edge computing, are connected to the expanding cloud demands. This reduces complexity and enables better performance and reliability.

Wave adieu to legacies and skills gap

With technological unemployment at or near record lows and limited immigration as a result of COVID-19, Malaysia reportedly faces a specific challenge from the global IT skills deficit. This dilemma will necessitate increased automation spending and a rethinking of the best way to close the skills gap.

In the past half decade, government CIOs named cloud services as one of their top priorities. This novel approach is regarded as an absolute way to increase IT agility, quickly conform to ever-changing needs, and fast-track digital government initiatives.

To manage shared infrastructure and applications, a cloud architecture would offer a unified IT operating environment that spans both private and public clouds. Another surefire way to fortify defences would be to future-proof existing systems and focus on functionality and readiness to support innovations such as AI and big data, along with current workloads.
