Powering Alibaba’s eWTP with big data analytics, AI and machine learning

KUALA LUMPUR: It has been more than a year since the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) initiative was launched in Malaysia and although public attention was only revived a week ago during the launch of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd’s first regional office here, several local companies have already been hard at work making the ambitious project a reality.

Big data analytics firm Fusionex International Plc is one of them, having led a consortium which secured a contract to provide the e-Services platform for the DFTZ from the Malaysia Digital Economy Corp.

The awarding of the contract was announced in November last year and according to Fusionex, has since been up and running with more than 3,000 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) on board currently.

“More and more of [these companies] are starting to appreciate that it is important to level up and capitalise on the robust growth in e-commerce and the export market,” said Datuk Seri Ivan Teh, Fusionex founder and chief executive officer of Fusionex.

He added that many local SMEs that Fusionex has spoken to are receptive, open-minded and cognisant of the global language.

“They are open and want to embrace technology as long as it’s easier, faster, better, and more cost-effective than the status quo. In short, they are constructive but might be facing challenges in areas such as market access, funds, modern skills and technology. This is where DFTZ’s e-Services can assist them,” Teh told The Edge Financial Daily in an email exchange.

The platform is key to realising the e-World Trade Platform (eWTP) that has been one of Alibaba’s key initiatives under the DFTZ banner and aims to provide Malaysian SMEs access to global consumers via e-commerce.


“The e-Services platform functions as a one-stop digital trade facilitation platform, that is integrated with a multitude of business service platforms, e-marketplaces, government agencies, logistics providers, freight forwarders, agents, SMEs and other service providers,” said Teh.

The platform aims to “bridge the gap in terms of know-how, reduce costs, as well as avoid or minimise unnecessary delays and encumbrances associated with the old way of manually doing things,” he said, adding that it is meant to be highly scaleable and inclusive.\

According to Teh, the platform is powered by big data technologies, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning and is “designed to help merchants — regardless of shape and size — to level the playing ground, and do so without incurring exorbitant costs”.

Fusionex is also riding on the strength of Alibaba Cloud, what with being the latter’s official strategic partner in this region.

“They are a great, committed partner,” Teh said of Alibaba Cloud, noting that the collaboration is synergistic as the latter “has a great cloud offering, whereas Fusionex is a leader in big data technology, AI and machine learning with a strong international reputation.”

While Fusionex may not be a household name to most Malaysians, it has certainly made waves overseas. The company had, until July last year, been listed on London’s Alternative Investment Market.

However, Teh had decided to take the company private after five years on the market due to what he reportedly said was a persistently undervalued stock.

Without disclosing any figures, Teh shares that Fusionex has “invested significantly” and will continue to invest as it is fully committed to ensuring the success of the e-Services platform.

He did not reveal the names of the group’s partners in its consortium, but that they are local players with the relevant expertise and experience.

Teh pointed out that like the DFTZ itself, the e-Services platform is not constrained to physical hubs such as the KL Aeropolis logistics hub being developed by Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd and Cainiao Smart Logistics Network (Hong Kong) Ltd.

“e-Services will be an open platform that welcomes multiple business service providers, be it forwarding agents, logistics players, and of course very importantly, good local SMEs with great Malaysian products.”

“The cost benefits and efficiencies these players enjoy would ultimately trickle down to consumers [in the form of] faster, more efficient and more cost-effective products and fulfilment,” he said. https://twitter.com/fusionexint

Exclusive Interview with Ivan Teh for BIGIT Technology Malaysia 2016 Conference

For this new BIGIT Blog series, we get upclose and personal with our event’s sponsors as they open up to us about what drives them, their perspectives and predictions of the Big Data and ICT landscape in the near future as well as letting us in on a glimpse of their latest and upcoming projects. Psst, read to the end to find out something unexpected about them too!

This week, read on as Fusionex Ivan Teh – BIGIT Technology Malaysia 2016’s Titanium Sponsor, shed some light on Fusionex’s upcoming launch – Fusionex VISION, inspires us with his life-altering experience and his view on the future of Big Data.

BIGIT Team (BT): As the Managing Director, Can you share a brief overview of what it is you do in your work at Fusionex?

Ivan Teh (IT): Working in Fusionex is exhilarating chiefly, and certainly not least due to the fast pace in which technology progresses. We constantly have to keep track of updates in the industry but that’s what makes it exciting. I’m busy with various conferences, talks and events in the IT space that mainly focuses on ways in which Big Data Analytics could address and alleviate their concerns. A lot of my time is also spent on meetings and discussions, both with the Fusionex team as well as external parties both locally and abroad. I truly enjoy what I do at Fusionex!

BT: Did you have any life-changing experiences that put you on the path that led you to be doing what you’re doing today?

IT: When I was about 8 years old, my late father used to send me to a textile store and night market to work during the school holidays. I was tasked to sell bed-sheets. He wanted me to understand how the world worked. It was very inspiring and gave me an early insight into entrepreneurship. Even then, it was an eye opener as I learnt to figure out that each customer’s need is different and influenced by many factors, and that to make a successful sell, one should aim higher than satisfying the customer; instead one should aim to delight the customer.

BT: What is the featured initiative/project that you are currently working on? Give us a brief overview of it.

IT: : The Fusionex team works tirelessly to improve our flagship product – our Big Data Analytics (BDA) solution, Fusionex Insight (GIANT). It gives organizations the ability to collect and process their data, and to present the information via powerful and useful visuals for analysis. True to our nature, we are constantly looking for ways businesses can benefit from insights derived out of their data. An enhanced version of GIANT, which will be released soon, pushes the envelope further with a Smart Search function that makes searching for insights much easier and much more humanized. Business users will be able to pull-up information just by asking GIANT questions and the system will respond instantly with visualizations for the requested data. This is known as Fusionex ‘VISION’.

BT: What are the key turning points in this featured project that you would like to share? What did you find most challenging and how did you deal with it?

IT: Managing and overseeing everything from the expectations and requirements of customers / market / industry, to tight deadlines and technology (that is ever evolving) makes for a challenging time at the workplace. However, challenges also present us with the opportunity to prove our caliber. I am lucky to be working with some of the greatest minds in the industry who time and again, admirably rise to the occasion. Whatever challenges that may arise during our work; we handle them and overcome them as a team. I believe that if you want to run fast – work alone; if you want to run far – then you have to work as team!

BT: What are your top 5 predictions for big data in SEA region for the next year or two and why?

IT: While there have been parties in the region utilizing this technology to fruitful results, the adoption of BDA in the ASEAN region can still be said to be in a nascent stage or at best, growing stage. With a number of developing countries, businesses may have a found a stable footing in their homes but are still uncertain of how to compete on a global level. BDA will help an increasing number of local or regional companies leverage on the power of data to up their game and compete internationally. In the near future, I expect we’ll see not only seasoned players improve their functions to go for a piece of the global pie but also aggressive startups who already set their sights for the bigger stage from the get-go, all with the help of BDA. At Fusionex, we believe that Big Data is driving the use of deep learning and artificial intelligence to make businesses smarter. We want to help organizations achieve this optimization.

BT: What’s next for you in your work? What are you looking forward to?

IT: This is a very important year for Fusionex. We have a lot of things planned and to look forward to. We are looking towards launching Fusionex VISION this year and will be looking towards continuously expanding our growing partnership network. We also look towards and work towards being recognized as a major Big Data Analytics player, not only regionally but globally in time to come.

BT: If you could be a Marvel character for a day, who would it be and why?

IT: Since it is just for a day, I would choose to be Tony Stark aka Ironman, simply because he is a technological genius, and the ability to tap into the mind of someone like that would inspire boundless ideas and opportunities for technological innovations, more importantly for the good of mankind and for this planet. https://www.fusionex-international.com/News-Announcements/Latest-News

Demystifying The DevOps Role: Consider These Things Before Beginning The Transitions

Call it the buzzword of the decade, but DevOps has perpetually shifted the way development teams and organizations approach their work. DevOps adoption rose from 66 percent in 2015 to 74 percent in 2016 and when something is popular, there’s always a tendency to ride the rapids and hastily jump on software outsourcing.

Consequently, many larger companies are incorrectly rushing to adopt the practice for the wrong reasons. They’re searching for ‘experienced DevOps’ or ‘senior DevOps’ partners to join their software teams, and software companies are cashing in on the opportunity by offering tons of DevOps positions to these organizations.


But the thing is, implementing DevOps isn’t as simple as hiring one person or a team of experts. DevOps is a culture that needs to be embraced by the entire organization. It’s a comprehensive, collaborative, and cross-team approach to managing the software development processes that relies heavily on automation and sharing – something smaller startups typically do well at. Once implemented, the culture removes silos and focuses on delivering real value.


So how can you correctly help your team to embrace DevOps if you haven’t implemented it off the bat? Consider these things before beginning the transition:


DevOps is not a role, nor a set of technologies

We often receive calls from companies, looking to hire DevOps experts to join their teams. But to those of us who work within a DevOps environment, this doesn’t make sense. While companies probably do need their teams to produce within a DevOps culture, it’s clear they don’t understand how the process functions as part of an organization. Because simply put, DevOps is not a role.


It’s almost impossible to hire an outside DevOps team and expect them to magically implement a functioning DevOps environment. Rather, the transition requires a strong cultural shift – with each team member becoming aligned with DevOps collaborative practices and philosophies, and working together to integrate long-separated systems and activities within an organization. So while many seek to hire new DevOps experts, it isn’t actually necessary: companies need to implement the change from within.


There’s no diving into DevOps head first – rather we need to become acclimatized to it inch-by-inch. Just like hiring one expert and expecting the rest of the team to match their level of expertise isn’t realistic, deploying DevOps technologies – or DevOps related tasks – doesn’t mean you’ve implemented DevOps, either. Practices like Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), and configuring Docker won’t do your team any good if they don’t truly understand how they function and how they correlate to DevOps processes. You’ll end up with software full of bugs in production or with unstable software and infrastructure, resulting in broken builds. A team needs to first embody the culture before rolling out new technologies.


You can train DevOps champions to oversee adoption

While hiring an outside expert won’t wondrously make an organization value DevOps philosophies, you can train DevOps Champions within your team to help everyone embrace the shift.


Since DevOps advocates a care for software – from conception to production – DevOps Champions thus need to be motivated by customer and business objectives, to help promote a sense of ownership inside the team. They need to be a strong and respected leader – but most of all, be well versed in DevOps culture and understand how it benefits the organization.


IT outsourcing - psl corpSo how can DevOps Champions approach the transition? They need to coach the team to understand and implement the core DevOps values: Culture, Automation, Measurement and Sharing (CAMS).


They must work to foster an environment that encourages people to ask questions, cooperate with and learn from each other, and innovate and try new things. They need to teach the team the importance of automation, in order to save time and build consistency, and then measure improvement through data that’s accessible to everyone on the team – that way, there’s a clear understanding of why certain processes need to be changed. And finally, they need to encourage sharing tools to increase efficiency and create a higher level of engagement amongst employees.


Overall, DevOps Champions should encourage developers, quality analysts, business analysts, system administrators, among many other roles, to share a collaborative, iterative and committed approach to their work.


And for added DevOps support, it’s also a great idea to turn to experts or partners in the industry who’ve already made the shift. This allows for transitioning teams to understand the best practices, but also learn from other organizations’ mistakes.


DevOps experts can provide guidance and more specialized skills for larger companies

While everyone needs to understand DevOps processes and value the collaborative approach, not everyone on the team needs to be an expert in DevOps technologies. With complex problems, it’s fine for DevOps Champions to configure the tasks and lead the way. While startups might require less specialized team members – everyone needs to help out with every part of the process as the team is usually more interconnected – bigger teams may require multiple DevOps Champions for complex technical execution and to keep the scope of each project clean.


And here’s the great thing: once the entire team understands the culture, practices and collaboration-based work, the DevOps Champions can move to help other areas of your organization, or they can turn their focus to implementing sophisticated techniques, including ones like autoscaling, complex monitoring and high availability.


While it’s tempting to hire a team of DevOps experts and quickly deploy the technologies, there’s really no cutting corners when it comes to transitioning to DevOps. Implementing cultural change at an organization is no easy feat. But in taking the time to correctly help your team embrace the DevOps culture, one day you’ll turn around and realize that everyone at your organization is in fact, a DevOps Champion.

All Hands on Deck: When to Bring on Extra Help for Your Digital Transformation Activities

AirBnB recently earned the top spot on CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list, and was estimated to be worth as much as traditional hotel giants Hilton and Hyatt combined. Nowadays, not moving fast enough to embrace a digital transformation can cost even the most well established incumbents a large chunk of their business.

However, the threat of digital disruption is not new. Most Fortune 500 CEOs will publicly affirm their urgency on setting sail on a digital voyage. Yet internally, management often finds itself at odds on how exactly to leverage technology to transform their current business model.

There is no “cookie cutter” checklist to jumpstart a digital transformation. It is a complex journey that requires: 1) a strong managerial commitment to change; 2) a radical cultural shift that allows an organization to gravitate away from rewarding risk-aversion and responsible asset management, towards rewarding innovation, experimentation, and risk-taking 3) upgrading the talent pool within a company to acquire cutting-edge digital abilities.
So once a company has embraced a digital transformation with the full support of management, and has explored specific business ideas they would like to “digitize”, how can they actually get the ball rolling and execute?
Work out exactly what your users want, and what that will entail
The digital world is built with offshore software development — an engineering feat that coordinates creativity, design, and hard engineering to make thousands of lines of code transform into a useful tool. But with the advent of the mobile digital age and “apps”, users demand that software be more than practical —they want it to be intuitive, simple, ergonomic, easy to learn, and yes, also beautiful.
Let’s suppose that the company ACME —a traditionally successful mid-market incumbent player with 30+ years in the industry—wants to start a digital transformation journey. Let’s suppose, also, that ACME has clear management support and has arrived at a promising new idea for leveraging technology to open a new line of business. Should ACME tackle the digital initiative alone? We suggest not, and here’s why.
This frontier is mired with obstacles and setbacks, that will require a particular way of building software to overcome them. For example, the new software application must be:
● Highly scalable and flexible, requiring engineering know-how to make it cloud-ready, elastic, and easily to integrate with other cloud-services
● The application must be “easily refreshable” —it should allow new features to be pumped into production several times a week without salient hitches or bugs, which requires technical skills in building “infrastructure as code”, automatic testing, and DevOps to guarantee a constant “stream” of quality code
● The application should embody modern design tenets both in usability and graphic attractiveness (which requires skills in design thinking, customer journey ideation, and modern user interfaces, among others).
Understand the strengths and weaknesses of your existing team
ACME’s current software engineering and design departments might not be up-to-date on the technologies that will allow them to successfully navigate the frontier of creativity that defines a new product. For many companies, there’s often a mismatch between the talent in its ranks, and what is required to solve the technical challenges at hand.
Established players in many industries are often quite old-fashioned in the way they manage the creative process. It is common, then, that internal marketing, customer service, or IT departments of traditional organizations are seldom prepared to collectively deploy innovation mechanisms that allow them to experiment effectively. That is, processes that allow them to think out of the box and find new ways to serve customers who are frustrated with the status quo and long for a better digital way to consume their services and products.
Companies must know when they need a helping hand
It’s hard to know what to look for if you have not lived through a digital innovation process. The quickest way to kickstart change is to learn by doing. Companies should hire not simply a “theoretical consultant or a coach” in digital innovation, but an outsourcing partner that can provide a real-life example of how to operationalize digital innovation within the company, in the form of a real product.
An outsourcing partner can help ACME’s technology department use the agile approach to software development – which focuses on being as ‘lean as possible’ and developing a minimum viable product (MVP). An initial test market will use ACME’s software and react to it, generating valuable user feedback. ACME can then take this back to the drawing board and quickly iterate on a Version 2 of the product, to be once more presented to the market. This cycle continues until ACME achieves what is called “Product-Market-Fit”.
Working with an outsourcing partner to develop a product is important for many other reasons, too. Firstly, it’s critical that an organization’s first projects in which they ‘go out on a limb’ in the digital age are successful. Early wins will generate a positive dynamic, and provide the confidence that allows management to further accelerate digital change.
offshore software development - psl corpAnd although agile requires technical skills, it also requires a change in behavior and company culture. An outsourcing partner that understands agile development behavior is a great way to cross-pollinate an agile culture to the existing organization.
And lastly, an incumbent without agile expertise will take a long time learning the ropes, potentially endangering the success of the project because of delays or loss of credibility within an organization afraid to change. Working with an experienced software outsourcing partner, on the other hand, provides a “guided laboratory” that allows both the incumbent to learn how to deploy effective software engineering practices for digital innovation, while ensuring an effective time-to-market for the particular initiative.
Undertaking an agile transformation can be daunting. But learning from an experienced outsourcing company will help an organization to quickly internalize agile engineering methodologies —and the undergirding culture of innovation that comes with them—under a learn-by-doing model. This will help them to evade the common “rookie” mistakes, and shorten the journey to a successful digital innovation.

How Much to Spend for SEO Solutions?

The question comes up often. Many individuals have actually been burned by SEO Services, but many have likewise been rewarded by SEO Services. Like any company transaction or purchase you should only spend your money when you feel comfy. Your comfort zone need to pull from numerous dependences, such as how well do you understand this business, for how long have you been working with this individual or entity, what is your impression, how do you personally feel about this individual or entity capability to supply this service, and how well have you done your research.

The truth about SEO services is that it is typically not difficult work, but that does not suggest its easy. It still takes time, dedication, effort, strategy, method, technique, ability, and experience to carry out quality SEO services. Anyone can make use of SEO services due to the fact that it is within your reach to learn, however not everybody can use reasonable method making SEO work. That is why SEO engineers are needed to accomplish the nearly impossible, but the concern is how do you understand you are making the best choice and not overpaying for SEO services?

I can honestly say for the most part SEO provider are on the up and up who want nothing more than to do expert business and supply quality SEO services. Identifying every dubious SEO service might not be possible, but I have actually some recommended recommendations which ought to assist anybody get a fair and quality rate for SEO services.

– Set yourself a “reasonable” marketing spending plan and goal

– Shop around

– Don’t purchase till you feel comfortable

– Remember “inexpensive does not constantly imply better”.

– Ask for references/ recommendations/ profile.

– Verify references/ referrals/ portfolio.

– Ask for analytical growth and development reports.

Set Yourself a Realistic Marketing Budget and Goal.

This merely indicate do not kid yourself and believe you can pay $200 and overnight you will certainly make thousands. Instead, develop a spending plan depending on your marketing requires, competitive industry, projected outcome, and length of time. If you are trying to find your website to rank in the Top 10 online search engine result page for a certain keyword or keywords then expect to pay in the thousands, oftentimes 10s of thousands, for quality, professional, and dependable SEO services, usually depending on the competitiveness of the keyword. If you wish to rank in the leading 10 for the keyword “Google”, this in many cases impossible, however I make sure there are some SEO business who will certainly accept the difficulty, but will certainly charge in the thousands if not millions to try this outrageous marketing goal.

Look around.

Find the most appealing SEO services and compare those to other competitive SEO services. Don’t opt for “low-cost” or “inexpensive”, but go for “efficient” and “strategy”. Any individual can do SEO work, but not everyone can enhance results using SEO services. This is because, SEO has to do with strategy and technique. It’s not about simply tossing thousands a links around the web and relaxing waiting for the surge. Its really a lot more complicated than that, as it has to do with having strategy, technique, and one-upmanship. You should discover SEO services which live by this principle and can provide you the strategic road map you require for success.

Do not Buy Until You Feel Comfortable.

You ought to always feel comfy with entrusting your cash into an SEO company paws. If you have special requirements such as you desire to sign a contract, you want a particular pay schedule, or you have any questions, ensure you get the answer and are comfy with the projected result then move on. I personally suggest getting a contract which lays out the projected result and any other bullet points, then also checking out the effects or possibilities if the forecasted outcome is not met.

Remember “Cheap Does Not Always Mean Better”.

This is a purchaser beware notice. When somebody provides $20 SEO services or even $200 SEO services, I would say “purchaser beware”. There may be a handful of highly experienced SEO suppliers who can provide you SEO Malaysia services at a savings or for incredibly low rates, however most of the time these companies either do not know their service worth or know precisely what they are doing, however may have had a lucky streak. You will certainly have to pay leading dollar or strongly, yet still economical for quality, strategic, and experienced SEO services. SEO engineers is what I want to call them. These are SEO’s who comprehend the SEO concept, who leader SEO Malaysia methods, and who don’t always follow the trend, however understand the trends.

Many of the SEO engineers are not going to be inexpensive, but well worth every dollar invested. If you take into factor to consider other marketing and advertising platforms, such as television broadcast marketing, print marketing, large tradeshow/fair booth advertising, etc. online marketing and search engine optimization cost peanuts as compared to these other advertising approaches and have a farther audience reach. SEO Malaysia services can quickly cost between $5,000-$25,000, it can even be much more than this, depending upon your needs, but this is far more low-cost and less costly than other marketing platforms. So, next time you think that SEO service cost excessive, believe about the other methods of marketing and their rates, together with roi (ROI). SEO services come out on leading whenever when compared versus these other marketing platforms.

Request for References/ Referrals/ Portfolio.

SEO Services Malaysia | Robin Ooi CompanyAny SEO provider need to have the ability to point you to their certifying work. SEO company should be able to present you with affectionate sites which they have actually performed SEO deal with. This can even be the SEO service provider personal site, they ought to have the ability to point you to their rankings in the online search engine along with some result driven SEO work within the website or across the web.

Validate References/ Referrals/ Portfolio.

Validating information is not always simple or accomplishable. You should attempt to reach out and validate what you can. If a shady SEO business was going to rip-off, then I am sure this is where they would begin, with testimonials. I suggest validating exactly what you can, but do not get overwhelmed with referrals since it might be the dubious SEO Malaysia company offering self appreciation. I in fact have some great verification ideas, but that’s another article all within itself.

Request for Statistical Growth & Progress Reports.

The SEO service campaign ought to include periodic progress/performance reports so you can track your website progress. Tracking your website development is very important in numerous ways. Initially, it tells if the SEO engineer is doing their job. Second, it tells you if the SEO approaches, strategy, and strategy is working or not. Third, it informs you how well the search engines are reciprocating your SEO efforts. And last but not least, it informs you just how much development is being made and at exactly what rate. All this advanced reporting info and trend tracking can offer you an overview of your website potential while giving you the chance to design or revamp your landing pages to increase your return on investment (ROI).

Okay, to wrap it up, simply make certain you avoid of shabby web neighborhoods and when making any online deal, do your research first. Likewise, bear in mind “inexpensive does not equal much better”. Believe about it, would you rather pay in the thousands to one SEO business for quality SEO work, which will certainly produce results and increase your website general performance or would you rather pay low-cost $200 to lots of different SEO’s who don’t ever actually offer you the outcomes you deserve. If an SEO engineer can increase your site sales and direct exposure by 80 % without your website ever arriving 10 search results page then you still got an excellent offer. This is the result of skilled and experienced SEO services. The only distinction between your website and the websites in the top 10, is those websites have SEO engineers working for them who understand SEO. http://www.robin-ooi.com
