  2. Why?

  3. yes, i agree with Jayce. announcing that is just a business strategy. in my opinion lah 😀

  4. Pikom counts on domestic demand

    PETALING JAYA: Information and communications technology (ICT) players are cautiously optimistic about the industry for the rest of the year despite fears of double-dip recession, according to the Association of the Computer and Multimedia Industry of Malaysia (Pikom).

    Its president, Shaifubahrim Saleh, said the weak economic situation in the world today would affect the growth of the global industry but the possibility of this happening in Malaysia seemed quite remote.

    “We will need to count on domestic demand to drive further growth in the event of a double-dip recession,” he told StarBiz.

    “There are numerous factors that will contribute positively towards ICT growth this year. This includes the state of the overall economic climate, government programmes such as the one million netbook programme, increased spending by large corporates and consumers as well as initiatives such as the National ICT Month 2010.”

    Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are also likely to speed up usage of ICT. There are currently about 900,000 SMEs in the country.

    Pikom is maintaining an 8% growth this year compared with 5% last year. Growth next year will be further fuelled by the 10th Malaysia Plan as the industry was expected to play an even more important role in the innovation and high-income economy, he noted.

    According to a recent report by Business Monitor International (BMI), the Malaysian ICT market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12% from 2010 to 2014. BMI predicts that Malaysia’s value of software market is expected to increase to US$760mil in 2010.

    Outsourcing Malaysia, a chapter of Pikom, was also positive about growth. Chairman David Wong said local outsourcing was picking up. At the moment it is growing steadily at CAGR of 15%.

    The outsourcing market in Malaysia is dependent on three factors, namely the Government and industry initiatives on outsourcing, the local economy and factors relating to population, culture and society.

    Sectors in Malaysia like financial services, oil and gas and logistics leveraged on outsourcing operations to serve their global counterparts, he said.

    SAS Malaysia managing director Jimmy Cheah said the enterprise information technology (IT) sector would continue to see cautious investments by corporations in the second half of this year and next year.

    The sector would be driven by the current worldwide obsession for a sustainable green economy, he said, adding that there would be demand for renewable energy-friendly solutions and wastage of resources.

    “Green IT” would be a key driver for enterprise IT spending across major sectors, including government, manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, retail and others, he noted.

    Signalling his confidence in the ITC sector, IBM Malaysia managing director Ramanathan Sathiamutty said one of the main challenges facing the industry was human capital.

    “To compete on a regional and global scale, the industry and Malaysia must retain, attract, develop and manage well their human capital.

    Talent and leadership development help companies to succeed. The single most pressing challenge that probably all companies face is cost. “However, in spite of cost pressures, leading companies like IBM remain committed to building leadership capabilities within their organisations,” he added.
