IoT Malaysia is an annual event held in Kuala Lumpur. With a focus on local telecommunication companies and enterprises in key verticals, the event offers Southeast Asia’s most comprehensive program for solution providers targeting enterprise adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) technologies in Malaysia.
Asia IoT Business Platform 2017 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia will be held on 27 – 28 July 2017 at Hotel Istana Kuala Lumpur.
In 2015, Malaysia launched its National IoT Strategic Roadmap, with the expectation that the implementation of IoT would contribute US$2.5b to the country’s gross national income by 2020 and US$11.2b by 2025. The National IoT Strategic Roadmap will serve as a guiding document aimed at moving Malaysia into becoming a premier regional IoT hub.
While IoT has grown tremendously over the past few years – being heralded as the “fourth industrial revolution” that can change the way businesses and organisations operate, IoT adoption remains conservative. Concerns over cost effectiveness, interoperability and security loom over the decision-making process, creating the needs for businesses to seek thought leadership, use cases, and consultative strategic planning to better understand how to adopt IoT successfully. With this in mind, this year’s edition of AIBP will focus on concrete discussions between IoT solution providers and end users to address key challenges and pain points in implementing IoT in businesses.
The second focus of AIBP will be on Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), which make up 97% of business establishments, 65% of the country’s employment, 36% of GDP and 18% of exports. A key element of Malaysia’s Masterplan for SMEs is the focus on innovation and technology adaptation. The National IoT Strategic Roadmap also identified Transformation of SMEs as a short-term strategy.
Topics covered in the program include the use of IoT in public services, manufacturing, agriculture, transport and logistics, and many other verticals. Sustainability and efficiency are key themes in IoT conversations, especially in smart cities and productivity. From smart metering and smart grids that aim to improve energy consciousness and efficiency in supply and consumption to automation and monitoring, IoT continues to disrupt business operations positively to enhance corporate sustainability and efficiency.
This is a dynamic industry platform that should not be missed if you want to understand more about enterprise digital transformation and IoT in Malaysia, understand businesses’ IoT adoption, and establish important connections that will benefit you and your organisation in many ways.
