CloudFX Group and Malaysia's national ICT agency Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) have opened a cloud service market place, a Business-2-Business (B2B) e-commerce platform, to offer cloud services from global, regional and local cloud service providers.
Announced earlier this year, MalaysiaOneCloud [dotcom] is for businesses intent on improving productivity, reducing costs and increasing customer service levels, said MDeC's Vice president of Infotech, Norhizam Abdul Kadir.
"With MalaysiaOneCloud, we are bringing cloud technology into the mainstream and making it more accessible than ever," said Norhizam.
"Businesses can easily identify and choose the ideal cloud solutions for their needs with full disclosure of what they are paying for," he said, adding that MalaysiaOneCloud is a one-stop platform to serve Malaysian customers' need for a wide range of cloud products and services including CRM, ERP, GST-based accounting cloud solution, finance, communication, mobility, infrastructure, storage, e-mail, backup, security, network, data centre services, and forth.
"We are very excited with this partnership with CloudFX and we anticipate this platform to provide a significant boost to our digital economy as well as promoting a transformative use of digital solutions," Norhizam said.
He said the collaboration between CloudFX and MDeC will speed up cloud adoption among customers from all vertical markets including banking and financial, manufacturer, logistic, commerce, retail, government, and enterprises.
