MDEC Officiates Launch of Logicalis Malaysia's New Headquarters in Kuala Lumpur

KUALA LUMPUR, 4 July 2019 – Logicalis Malaysia today officially launched its new headquarters based out of Sunway Velocity in Kuala Lumpur.

The event was officiated by Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) Vice President (Investment and Industry Development) Hew Wee Choong, who later urged local companies to continue with their Digital Transformation efforts so to “future proof” their business models while developing new revenue streams.

“Businesses must be immersed with latest technologies to ensure their business models are future-proof and able to take on seismic shifts,” said Hew.

This view was shared by Managing Director of Logicalis Malaysia, Bernard Chiang, who also encouraged businesses to continue with their digital transformation efforts so as “to realise technology as a business enabler”.

“In essence, business and technology should work as one,” emphasised Chiang.

“Logicalis works with both IT and line of business owners to create tangible and transformative digital outcomes that improve productivity and operational efficiencies,” said Lee Chong-Win, CEO, Logicalis Asia.

Lee added that Logicalis Malaysia’s strategy focuses on four key pillars, which are:

  1. Hybrid IT comprising Cloud Solutions, Data Centre, Application Modernisation and Cybersecurity
  2. Digital Workplace such as Communications and Collaboration, Mobility and IT Service Management
  3. Digital Ready Infrastructure consisting of Networking and Software Defined Networking, and
  4. Advisory and Managed Services

“Logicalis believes that Digital Transformation is about leveraging technology to enable new business models, deliver a better customer experience, enhance collaboration and improve efficiencies,” said Lee.

Besides its new headquarters, Logicalis has also invested in Malaysia’s ICT industry. Back in 2006, the Logicalis Group established a Global Support Centre in Cyberjaya providing world class managed services to customers across the globe.
