Businesses should quickly embrace and arm themselves with the knowledge and talent to accelerate their digital transformation journeys, or risk being left behind in global competitiveness in the near future. I would like to thank Maxis for organising this Summit and acting as a catalyst to bring global technology insights and thinking to this stage for the advancement of all Malaysian businesses as it is aligned with the Government’s ambition in driving the digital economy.”
