Cloud Professional Services
Deliver transformative business outcomes with end-to-end guidance and expertise.
Cloud is a game-changer, but only if done right. It’s more than just the outsourcing of infrastructure; it’s a reinvention of your business models, processes, and structures. Your applications need to be cloud-native, not just cloud-hosted. And it needs to be considered holistically from the core to edge, particularly when it comes to security, governance, and operations.
We’ve designed our cloud professional services portfolio with this holistic approach in mind, and have assembled a world-class team spanning a wide range of specialisations. So whether you’re taking your first step to the cloud or enhancing your digital strategy, you’ll always be one step ahead of the competition.
With the release of Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM)’s regulatory framework for digital banks in Dec 2019, it’s not a matter of if, but when we’ll see fintech companies go head-on with traditional banks.
While some incumbents have pushed for digitalisation, many have just started initiatives to realise their desired business outcomes – particularly in lowering costs, driving innovation, and increasing agility and responsiveness.
For traditional banks, a controlled (risk mitigated, compliance guided), cloud-based transformation is key to getting ahead of digital banks.
Regulatory compliance and security
Private or hybrid cloud solutions can now meet even the most demanding security requirements and BNM’s strict RMiT guidelines.
Cloud adoption frameworks provide flexibility around modernising specific application workloads, whether it’s a thorough re-engineering or a more simple remediation.
Competition from fintech companies
Managed services let companies go-to-market quicker and reap the full benefits of cloud – without significant capital or human resource investments.
When it comes to healthcare, every second counts. The more clinicians have access to up-to-date patient data and analytics, the faster they can deliver effective, timely treatment. IT is key to making real-time healthcare a reality – both in private and public institutions.
Beyond electronic health record (EHR) and electronic medical record (EMR) systems, there is an opportunity for IT to deliver better patient outcomes with a streamlined, cloud-based patient management platform that capitalises on technologies such as advanced analytics, automation, and IoT.
These cloud-based systems would allow healthcare providers to better meet the demands of an ageing population and the handling of seasonal communicable diseases, which may unexpectedly strain already limited medical resources. More importantly, they will be crucial in handling the explosion of health and medical data brought on by the proliferation of smart devices.
Patient privacy and data security
Hybrid cloud solutions empower healthcare providers to meet their most demanding privacy and security requirements, as well as governmental and healthcare regulations.
An optimised cloud platform will help provide greater flexibility and efficiency, allowing healthcare providers to better allocate scarce medical resources and provide care.
IoT connectivity and big data analytics are enabling better patient care and experiences. Our solutions across these domains allow for greater integration with less complexity.
Technology has given consumers tremendous power over retailers. At a push of a button, one can buy virtually anything from anywhere, know and compare everything about a product, or track the delivery of an order in real-time. The bar is set high.
To get ahead, businesses need to deliver a seamless omnichannel experience centred around the customer – with personalised offers, competitive prices, real-time notifications, and rapid order fulfilment. Cloud is enabling this change by providing a scalable foundation for big data, advanced analytics, and IoT, among other technologies key to achieving this goal.
Personalisation and service
Customer data can be consolidated into a central database and analysed by machine learning tools to provide real-time recommendations.
Speed up deliveries by integrating data from the store, warehouse, and logistics providers. Incentivise in-store pickups by displaying real-time inventory information online.
Bridge the gaps between various channels to ensure customers are rewarded no matter where and how they shop. Keep customers engaged throughout their journeys, from digital to physical stores.
No matter where you are on your cloud journey, you can count on us to take you further. Maxis is the only converged provider of AWS and Azure services in Malaysia – with strong partnerships with both cloud providers and a fast-growing pool of certified professionals – giving you access to both connectivity and cloud services in one managed service.
In the short months since Covid-19 was declared a pandemic, the world has changed almost beyond recognition, and so has its needs to adapt. From quarantines to lockdowns to Malaysia’s movement control order (MCO), nations worldwide enforced social distancing by limiting access in places crowds used to congregate. Overnight, activities that used to take place outside the home – shopping, entertainment, meals, exercise, school, even medical consultations – became things we did online.
Cloud has become a familiar term even among non-technical users. However, many are still likely to think of it mainly as a place where data is kept, when, in reality, cloud has evolved to become so much more.
This region has been slower than others in adopting cloud, which means now cloud providers are now fighting for dominance. Investment in Asia’s cloud infrastructure reached US$98 billion (RM417 billion) in 2019, an amount expected to double by 2025. This investment is in large part due to expected demand from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
In our previous article, we took a closer look at the three cloud providers who between them command over 50% of the market. While still largely known for providing public cloud services – space, software and platforms that are available to anyone who wants to use them— all three offers private cloud solutions as well.
Cloud adoption is both more complicated and simpler than most companies expect. While cloud providers make it easy for you to sign up to their services, their fee structures can be complicated, as can the fine print for migrating out to another cloud provider down the line.
