 Headquartered in the United States, Teradata Corporation is the global leader in the data warehousing market and employs more than 10,000 professionals in over 42 countries worldwide dedicated to providing analytical solutions.

Fusionex International's managing director, Ivan Teh, said: "Specifically, our BDA COE will focus on high-impact projects and solutions, while the BDA Academy will bring about a new dimension of knowledge, expertise, innovation, cutting-edge technology and know-how, with vast possibilities". Fusionex International is a multi-award winning Malaysian company providing solutions specializing in Business Intelligence, Analytics & Big Data with offices in Asia, Europe and the United States. 

Dato' Seri Zainal Rahim Bin Seman, director general, MAMPU said, "To spur the adoption of BDA in the public sector, MAMPU is happy to collaborate with MDeC and MIMOS on the BDA DG Lab. This will be a significant step that provides continuity to the previous implementation of four BDA pilot projects as an outcome of the 25th MSC Malaysia Implementation Council Meeting in 2013". 

Meanwhile, MIMOS president and chief executive officer, Datuk Abdul Wahab Abdullah, said, "Through this collaboration, 66 Intellectual Properties from MIMOS labs are integrated into 20 technology platforms to be used in the Government BDA solutions.  Currently, we are planning to deploy five high-impact Proof-of-Concept (POC) solutions with the support from MOSTI, which will create business opportunities for local technopreneurs. This will enable these technopreneurs to provide BDA Services on par with global technology giants."

The CoEs, which will use data from a variety of sources including the private datasets, Open Data, and purchased data, will be located in facilities of MIMOS, Teradata, and Fusionex in Malaysia.
