Malaysia’s Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) has announced plans for a Big Data Analytics Digital Government Lab and two partnerships with private sector organisations to help achieve its vision of the country as a regional Big Data hub.

The Digital Government Lab will be set up by the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU), and MIMOS, the national ICT research agency.

In an exclusive interview with FutureGov last year, GCIO Dr Suhazimah Dzazali said that “our immediate initiative will be looking at Big Data”, adding that the project will cover four different areas: sentiment analysis, in partnership with the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia; crime prevention with the Home Ministry; infectious disease prevention with the Health Ministry; and price watch with the Ministry of Trade.

The new government lab will be part of a wider national Big Data Analytics Innovation Network, which will be established in partnership with IBM, Microsoft, Dell, Oracle, Hewlett-Packard, SAP and SAS and Telekom Malaysia. “The establishment of the Innovation Network is a crucial step in realising MDeC’s vision to place Malaysia as a [Big Data analytics] hub in the Asean region,” Yasmin Mahmood, Chief Executive of MDeC, said at the launch this week.
