TM, Cisco to spur Malaysia’s digital agenda
Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) and technology vendor Cisco Systems have announced a new strategic partnership as part of Cisco’s Country Digital Acceleration (CDA) programme to Spur Malaysia’s ambitions to become a technology-driven nation and regional digital leader.
In a joint statement, both parties said they signed two collaboration agreements to pave the way for key projects focused on helping the country develop its 5G innovation platform as well as accelerate technology adoption and transformation for Malaysia’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
According to Cisco, its CDA programme is a strategic partnership with governments worldwide to accelerate their national digitalisation agendas and create new value for the country, its businesses, and citizens.
The CDA programme in Malaysia was unveiled as a collaboration framework between Cisco and MyDigital Corporation in May 2022.
It is aligned with MyDigital, the government’s Digital Economy Blueprint, aimed at accelerating the growth of Malaysia’s digital economy, with a focus on driving digital transformation in the public sector, building digital infrastructure, and cultivating agile and competent digital talent, TM and Cisco said.
TM’s partnership with Cisco focuses on three key pillars: digital transformation in the public sector, specifically education – which will be launched at a later date; digital transformation for service providers, focusing on 5G innovation, and digital transformation for SMEs.
