The National ICT Association Of Malaysia
Message from the PIKOM Chairman
It is with much honour and humility that I accept my election to the PIKOM Council which reflects my commitment towards working in the best interests of all PIKOM stakeholders, especially, you the member.
We understand that the ICT industry in Malaysia is facing stiff challenges and is undergoing an evolution of sorts due to macro-environmental factors and new technologies emerging to the fore.
These are certainly concerns that we share with you and working with and for you, we look to chart a better course towards helping all members embrace these changes and to benefit from them.
Among areas that we will pursue include a focus on e-commerce and its potential impact on all members, thus providing greater opportunities for members. You have heard about the PIKOM Academy – training will be at the forefront in 2017 and beyond. We will also be continuing to provide thought leadership and to lobby the government for members’ benefit, to expand and increase our membership base including individual members, to unearth and recognize ICT talent and innovation and more.
PIKOM is also engaging closely with other associations in the country. We are affiliated to the Malaysian Service Providers Confederation (MSPC), Master Builders Association of Malaysia (MBAM), SME Association of Malaysia (SMEAM), Malaysia Retail Chain Association (MRCA), KL Selangor Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KLSCCCI). Their members are ICT users and potential customers of yours. You will be hearing more of collaborations with these associations in the near future.
Working together as a team – united by our drive to provide the best to members, we, the Council will always work in your best interest and for the greater ICT eco-system and industry. I am delighted that we have assembled a very talented and abled team of Councillors and Advisors, who each bring their own strength, to serve PIKOM in this term.
I thank you for your continued support and also welcome suggestions and feedback as to how we can best work for and with you.
