Global digital transformation solutions provider, UST is partnering with Intel and SAP to assess and enable the Industry 4.0 digital transformation journey for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in northern Malaysia.
Dedicated to working with UST to accelerate the rollout of Industry 4.0 systems and solutions, the collaboration is expected to further accelerate the transformation of local businesses into 'intelligent enterprises', empowering them to deliver the streamlined and automated Industry 4.0 experiences necessary to thrive in a modern growth-oriented economy.
According to data from the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM), Industry 4.0 adoption amongst Malaysian firms sits at less than one percent. This is significantly behind international standards, creating a gap that must be overcome if Malaysian firms are to remain competitive in the long term.
"This high-profile collaboration will unite industry leaders in the hardware and software sectors to accelerate the development of meaningful Industry 4.0 solutions," said Amar Chhajer, Country Head Malaysia, UST. “By working together, all three companies will contribute towards achieving the essential business goals of Malaysian SMEs while helping them plan for the future.”
As part of the partnership, UST, Intel and SAP will collaborate to establish a Customer Experience center at a local UST Innovation Lab that will help share ideas on digitizing customized solutions. In addition, the UST Innovation Lab will host a cutting-edge experience center where SMEs can receive consultation and transformation plans for their businesses.
Intel has established itself as a market leader by providing an extensive ecosystem of secure and scalable building blocks for industrial IoT solutions that bring intelligence to operating assets and reveal insights from data.
Similarly, SAP works to develop innovations which bridge the physical and digital worlds to make intelligent and autonomous systems possible. By partnering with these dynamic companies, UST is making it possible for enterprises to realize the full benefits of next generation technology.
