CloudMile opens CoE to upskill 300,000 in Malaysia

Singapore-based CloudMile has opened its Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Malaysia, which will be serving customers across Southeast Asia and touted as a first-of-its-kind initiative in the cloud industry.

The CoE helps businesses of all sizes advance their digital competitiveness through upskilling programs for AI and cloud-first practices.

Through the launch of CoE, CloudMile showcased the real-world applications of data, ESG, and generative AI.

“With the establishment of the CoE, we are extending an invitation to a dynamic and vibrant community of thinkers, trailblazers, and visionaries,” said Lester Leong, CloudMile country manager in Malaysia.

“By joining forces, we are poised to unleash the boundless potential of technology, fostering a flourishing environment where collective achievements and advancements thrive,” said Leong.

The CoE is expected to benefit 300,000 Malaysians by 2026 via upskilling programs supported by Google Cloud, CloudMile, and Trainocate Malaysia, where participants will have access to digital learning paths at no cost, and acquire crucial skills and earn industry recognised badges that open doors to new career possibilities.

“Customers look to our partner ecosystem for strategic counsel, expert implementation services, and deep product domain expertise to transform their business and industry – and to do so in markets often defined by unique policies, compliance requirements, and cultural nuances,” said Patrick Wee, Google Cloud country manager in Malaysia.

CloudMile has established partnerships with technology vendors in various fields to drive business expansion and digital innovation, including Google Cloud, MongoDB, Fivetran, and Confluent which are instrumental in AI and data, and Horangi, Palo Alto Networks, and JumpCloud which provide essential security solutions. 

According to CloudMile, the partnerships enable real-world success stories and enterprise use cases across industries.
