PUTRAJAYA: The government has agreed to appoint four Cloud Service Provider (CSP) panels to provide the best, safe and guaranteed services to empower MyGovCloud.
The appointment was made via Cloud Framework Agreement (CFA) between the government, CSP and local Bumiputera CLOUD provider known as Managed Service Provider (MSP).
Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, the CFA contract with the government, CSP and MSP involves four CSP companies namely Amazon Web Services Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., Google Cloud Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., Microsoft (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. and Telekom Malaysia Berhad.
Meanwhile, the four MSP companies are from Cloud Connect Sdn.Bhd., Enfrasys Solutions Sdn. Bhd., Radmik Solutions Sdn. Bhd. and Awantec System Sdn. Bhd.
“The involvement of CSP and MSP is expected to attract potential investments into the country worth between RM12 billion to RM15 billion towards 2025.
“The investments will be the backbone to the development of a strong digital ecosystem to achieve the sustainable economic growth, hence making Malaysia as the future main digital hub in ASEAN region,” Ismail said in a statement, Monday.
The Prime Minister added, MyGovCloud initiative is expected to produce more cloud computerisation experts via continuous trainings and certification programmes that will be provided by the CSP and MSP.
“This will raise the competency of the civil servants in line with the needs and the current technology. Through the implementation of CFA, the public service sectors will enjoy the CLOUD services better, faster and targeted at a competitive price via bulk discount offers from CSP and MSP,” Ismail said.
The Prime Minister also mentioned that as a whole the CFA agreement is an innovation in providing CLOUD services in all public sector agencies in line with strengthening the future functions of the Malaysian Administrative Modernization and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU) .–Malaysia World News
