The local premier cloud service provider VADS Berhad (VADS) has signed a collaborative agreement with Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) to assist local Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to enable their applications as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) through VADS Cloud Enablement Programme as well as promoting their application globally.
Under this agreement, 10 local MSC Malaysia ISVs will be selected to participate the programme. The selected ISVs will receive total grants up to RM34,000 each which cover Infrastructure-as-a Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), subscription cost (including bandwidth), storage devices and other services. The ISVs also can leverage VAD’s marketplace known as TM BizApp Store to promote their application to small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).
This program is part of the overall MSC Malaysia Cloud Computing Enablement Initiative, Datuk Badlisham Ghazali, CEO of MDeC said. The initiative is to promote MSC Malaysia software and services both locally and abroad, as well as equip ISVs and SMEs with the cloud capabilities to accelerate the nation’s development into a fully Innovative Digital Economy, he added.
