Engineering services and infrastructure conglomerate UEM Group Berhad have entered into a partnership with Microsoft Malaysia to drive the UEM Group’s cloud-based digital initiatives.

The three-year agreement will see Microsoft providing digital advisory services to the UEM Group to help implement technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), Predictive Data Analytics, Machine Learning and Augmented Reality.

According to UEM Group managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Izzadin Idris, the  partnership with Microsoft is the latest step in the UEM Group’s “digital revolution” and complements a RM150mill, three-year integrated Enterprise Resource Planning Cloud Solution which the company announced in October 2016.

One of the first UEM Group subsidiaries to see the fruits of the Microsoft partnership is UEM Edgenta Berhad, which has developed a Smart Facilities Management Solution based on Microsoft’s Azure IoT Hub and Machine Learning tools.

According to Azmir Merican, managing director and chief executive officer of UEM Edgenta, the Smart Facilities Management solution, which intelligently monitors and controls the building’s temperature and other related systems, has driven down the cost of the company’s building services by between 18% to 20%.
