KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 17): REDTone Digital Bhd and UK-based Informed Solutions have partnered to offer digital transformation platforms and solutions powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to supercharge Malaysia’s digital agenda.
According to REDtone, the partnership aims to achieve a two-pronged objective — boosting the Malaysian government’s agenda to build an enabling eco-system to increase the nation’s competitiveness, and empowering the locals.
“Our partnership is timely in light of the government’s focus to build a more robust and integrated public sector ecosystem, the roll-out of 5G infrastructure, as well as the push to advance inclusiveness,” said REDtone chief executive officer Lau Bik Soon in a statement.
“This will foster a greater level of collaboration and synergy, which will enhance transparency, optimise resources and effectiveness. In turn, these will strengthen Malaysia’s proposition as a key investment destination, while delivering citizen-centric services across the entire public sector,” he added.
Lau said with the AI-derived data and insights, government agencies will be able to develop new as well as innovative services and products.
“We can also accelerate the agencies’ digital transformation by empowering public servants to level up their technical expertise in the areas of data, AI, and cybersecurity,” he said.
Meanwhile, Informed Solutions CEO Seth Finegan said the partnership will allow them to offer world-class digital services to local communities, opening-up opportunities for sustainable growth and development.
“We are proud to be among the strategic digital suppliers to the UK government.
“Our current programmes are responsible for accelerating and de-risking many of the most significant, national-scale digital transformations and data science worth over £20 billion (RM114.97 billion) to the UK economy that the government is running to transform the healthcare, policing and emergency services, environment and land management, transport, energy transition, and citizen engagement sectors,” Finegan said.
