Dr. Toa Charm’s Insight in Malaysia

“Reskill Everyone with Big Data Literacy in Digital Economy” 

Understanding Big Data is the foundation of digital transformation and smart city; many international metropolises are becoming data-driven smart cities to provide a better life and experience to their citizens and tourists. As an example, as the 2nd most technologically-ready country in the South East Asia region, Malaysia is pushing initiatives to turn as smart cities by digitizing public services and integrating smart city management systems. However, to achieve this, the adequacy of data talent will be essential for the initiative.

Dr. Toa Charm (Chairman of OpenCertHub) and Daniel Yuen (COO of OpenCertHub) were invited by MiCPA and ACCA to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to deliver a series of insight sharing sessions on the topic of reskilling and data literacy. It drew much interest from a local industry expert and big data community to understand different open-source applications of Big Data and the methodology to prepare themselves and their company to face the inevitable change of digital transformation.
