Sarawak on right track with embrace of IR4.0

KUCHING, July 21 (NNN- Bernama) — Sarawak is moving in the right direction with its embrace of Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) and adaptation to new technology.

Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd group chief executive officer, Datuk Dr Mohd Abdul Karim Abdullah, said the state’s policy of openness, good leadership and political stability, could help it progress and become ready for global competition.

He said that technology is vital for an organisation to increase its efficiency and productivity, as well as stay ahead.

“In this regard, and with the policy of openness by the government, the private sector could adapt to the changing environment without any constraints,” he told Bernama at the Beyond Paradigm Summit 2019 in Pullman Kuching yesterday.

The summit by Serba Dinamik and themed ‘Creating Distinctive Digital Solutions’ was also held in Kuala Lumpur from July 17-18 where it was launched by Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He said the aim of the summit was to help industry players familiarise themselves with new technology which could help with company operations.

He said Serba Dinamik had brought different kinds of technology from outside vendors to help companies, especially in Sarawak, find engineering solutions.

He also said Serba Dinamik — or the private sector — and the government had to work hand in hand to actualise the objective of IR 4.0.

The two-day summit is a showcase of cutting edge technology for automation and data exchange pertaining to IR 4.0.

Its primary goal is to gather together businesses that have been working on adopting small-scale IR 4.0 solutions to discuss concepts, generate great ideas as well as implement them to change Malaysia’s digital landscape.
