This press release is an IDC’s analyst view based on the https://www.digitalnewsasia.com/digital-economy/tm-one-unveils-klang-valley-core-data-centre article.

KUALA LUMPUR, May 15th, 2019 – International Data Corporation (IDC) believes that the success of digital transformation within an organisation is positively correlated to the effectiveness of their IT service delivery environment, which are as good as the facilities in which they reside. The launch of Klang Valley Core Data Centre (KVDC), by TM ONE combined with Iskandar Puteri Core Data Centre (IPDC) serves to increase the success of digital transformation within organisations in Malaysia. It is essential that local datacenters are modernised till the extent that it can maintain and enhance the systems to handle next-generation applications.

IDC's Malaysia Datacenter Infrastructure Trends report reveals that the datacenter industry in Malaysia has changed drastically over the past 10-15 years. Continued innovations have raised expectations and delivered better value. Replacement and migration are key priorities among IT infrastructure decision makers in Malaysia, as new datacenter infrastructure investments are for systems of engagement, insight and action rather than maintaining existing systems of records. Chief Information Officers (CIO's) will face pressure from Line of Businesses (LOBs) for more agile cloud-based datacenter environments that enhance customer experience and support next generation workloads and applications.

“Malaysian enterprises prefer global datacenter because they bring to the table strong services capabilities, process maturity, and the ability to help local businesses build the best practices for their IT environments. This preference makes it difficult for local service providers to penetrate the market. But as more enterprises are moving towards multi-cloud and hybrid deployments, TM ONE with KVDC and IPDC has great opportunity on-hand to showcase itself as a competitive service provider to run significant workloads and move up the value chain from being a strong co-location provider to a preferred managed services provider for a large number of Malaysian enterprises as they embark on their journeys to become digitally native enterprises," said Baseer Siddiqui, Senior Research Manager and Digital Transformation Lead, IDC Malaysia

“TM ONE's Twin Core Data Centre (KVDC & IPDC) initiative indicates that it realised the fact that in order to match with global datacenters it needs to build world class, futureproof and scalable datacenter. And TM ONE didn’t disappoint - their answer is two Tier III in design and constructed facility datacenter. IDC foresees that with the launch of KVDC, local enterprises will begin to consider it over global datacenter as it can provide similar or better efficiency with decrease in latency at cheaper cost based on the contract size, period and negotiations," said Anchalee Sudechawongsakul, Market Analyst, IDC ASEAN.

“Malaysia is a bit slower than other developed markets in terms of DX maturity, but it is gradually changing. Consumerisation of IT and digital disruption are forcing Malaysian firms to shift their vision and strategy. It is necessary that enterprises are able to leverage new elastic datacenter, such as TM ONE's Twin Core Data Centre which will provide superior support for transformational workloads such as cognitive, Artificial Intelligent (AI) or image processing," said Sreenath Kandarpah, Head of Services, IDC Malaysia.
