KUALA LUMPUR: NCT group of companies has inked a memorandum of understanding with Microsoft in Malaysia to support the former in the digitalisation of the upcoming NCT Smart Industrial Park (NSIP) in Selangor.
It said in a statement the MoU is set to serve as a starting point for NCT to explore Microsoft’s trusted cloud network and advanced data management solutions for NCT and its future tenants at NSIP.
NCT said it aims to collaborate with Microsoft to look into Internet of Things (IoT), data architecture, analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) along with edge computing, all of which will be beneficial to NSIP to drive efficiency and productivity.
To encourage greater digital savviness for the tenants at NSIP, NCT intends to leverage Microsoft’s Enterprise Skilling Program to deliver hands-on training of Microsoft technologies.
Certified candidates will be awarded a globally recognized certification, testament to their digital competencies, while being part of the Microsoft MEET Community, which provides access to the latest news on employability and digital talent acquisition.
“NSIP is a visionary project, and it is our commitment to continuously explore new avenues that will enable us to add value to our business, in the best interest of our future tenants.
"We are proud to explore this collaboration with Microsoft, a trusted technology player, as we build a smart, holistic, and comprehensive industrial park," said NCT founder and group managing director Datuk Sri Yap Ngan Choy in a statement.
