Maxis Works With Local Solution Providers To Build IoT Ecosystem

schedule 09 Mar 2018

Leveraging on its superior suite of IoT solutions and backed by its industry-leading 4G network, Maxis will be working with MDEC’s IoT solution providers to further strengthen the IoT ecosystem for businesses by offering innovative solutions.

“With Maxis’ proven track record in the IoT space and expertise via our partnership with Vodafone, solution providers that collaborate with us can potentially widen their customer base. Together, we can build awareness on the benefits of IoT solutions and bridge the gap between customers’ needs and the solutions available from partners,” said Claire Featherstone, Maxis’ Head of Business Solutions, Enterprise.

Among Maxis’ IoT offerings include mDrive, a fleet tracking solution which is used internally for its own business operations. This tracking solution enables businesses to reduce cost and promotes safer driving habits within the fleet management of a company.

Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) Director, Data Economy Division, Dr Karl Ng, commented: "Data technology adoption (IoT, Big Data Analytics and AI) is about creating value from data. And we are pleased to see the collaboration and sharing of experiences and insights for local and global IoT business opportunities which is in tune to MDEC’s mission to spur the growth of Malaysia’s digital economy.”

According to Vodafone’s annual IoT Barometer1 a global survey, companies in Asia Pacific are gaining momentum with IoT adoption, faster than the global average; from just 12% in 2013 to 36% in 2017, compared to global IoT adoption of 29%. APAC companies that have adopted IoT are seeing increased competitiveness and improved brand differentiation.

The IoT Barometer also highlighted that IoT adopters are digital leaders; 76% of these adopters are seen as one of the most innovative players in their market. Collaboration is also key to being successful in the IoT ecosystem and these solution providers can benefit by partnering with Maxis.

These key statistics were shared with MDEC’s IoT solution providers at a conference organised by Maxis recently.
