Third Party Event

28 Feb 2017

The current success of smart transformation -particularly in the internet of things (IoT) as well as integrated urban public transportation – has created the opportunity for smarter technology to take root, where cashless payment systems, security and alternative energy are all becoming a reality. Malaysia has the ability to jump in at the right time with the right tools and motivation to enter the market and sustain itself there. The smart city concept has been on the table for the past decade, but Malaysia took cautionary steps before leaping into the game. The country immersed itself in connectivity before moving to network creation. Once independent networks were able to sustain themselves, the society went knee deep with apps, big data crunching, e-wallet, among other things, with IoT being the choice of word for where we are at.  

Within the facets of the six criteria to earn the “Smart City” tag, we have created integrated transportation, IoT, holistic new cities of the future, such as Malaysia City, Iskandar Development and several newly announced projects. Our local entrepreneurs and e-commerce players have crossed the 1bn landmark, and we are also pushing for alternative utilities management, something that currently costs the most for businesses and households alike. With green as our largest agenda, everything is well aligned to create a better city and a better country. However, the simplification of smart cities can create complicated technologies, which can deter the very straight forward nature it was striving for.

ASLI has been a staunch supporter of the smart city development since 2012 and this year, the Greater KL & Smart City Summit 2017 is looking to dive further into the current and upcoming projects that will change how Malaysia would be in the next decade in regards to opportunities and gains.
