Pillars of Digitalisation

Digital Transformation is aligned to the 4 pillars under Governance, Economy, Community and Infrastructure by using the technology to build digital relationships with the various stakeholders.
We plan to digitise core rakyat-facing processes end-to-end with a data and API first architecture to enable integration across multiple agencies to drive adoption of digital services.
To complement our strengths in hardware, we will intensify the software engineering and ICT sector. We will seek niches in digital services and software projects to build scale and core competence.
We will use technology as another channel to engage the public to crowd source ideas, feedback and opinions in the policy-making process. Digital platforms will be used to engage the community to foster dialogue and mobilise digital volunteerism.
By creating a digital twin of the State, we will digitalise geospatial data of all layers of utilities and infrastructure network overlay onto the built environment to improve decision making and streamline the deployment process.
