Public Sector ICT Strategic Plan 2016 - 2020

The Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU) is spearheading the ICT agenda, responsible for setting the direction and planning for ICT implementation in the Public Sector. One of the key strategic thrusts is optimise shared services and enhance cyber security. This is to be achieved through strengthening the Public Sector Data Center (PDSA).

Demand for DC facilities has been robust

Just a few years ago, the data centre industry in Malaysia was a vastly different one. More and more agencies are beginning to cope to be in line with the government regulations. The impact of big data and the Internet of Things has been extraordinary and it has only just begun. With this data explosion comes increased demand for data centre capacity – demand that many data centre are not equipped to accommodate.
Government agencies and department need to  ensure their  data centre infrastructure management is business-outcome oriented, whether it’s for their existing or future date centres. However, there are still many challenges with lack of visibility of critical facility operations, capacity, reliability, availability and ageing infrastructure being the biggest issues In summary, many government agencies have begun their digital journey to reduce their energy consumption, maximise efficiency, reduce operating costs and align to ICT strategy guidelines. So as CIOs and IT leaders start to take stock of how they store and use data, there are two important factors they will need to carefully consider:
  • how easy it is to scale up or down
  • how to stay lean and green

What’s the best way for IT leaders to respond to this demand?

The answer lies in a data centre solution that matches infrastructure density to application requirements and can scale to meet changing demands.
