Knowledge Clinics Series Big Data Week Kuala Lumpur

As part of its Knowledge Clinics series, Bangsar South Cybercentre played host to the Big Data Week Kuala Lumpur from 5 to 11 May 2014, at the newly opened Connexion@Nexus. Touted as a global festival of data, Big Data Week is hosted across over 30 cities worldwide.

The event in Malaysia was initiated by the MDeC (Multimedia Development Corporation) with the aim to help Malaysia’s ICT industry build up its capabilities in BDA (Big Data Analytics), and spur endless opportunities for BDA products and services. With the theme of ‘Harnessing Value from Your Data Variety’, the launch of the seven-day event was officiated by Yang Berhormat Datuk Jailani Johari, Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia and witnessed by Datuk Badlisham Ghazali, Chief Executive Officer of MDeC.

The third edition of Big Data Week also debuted on 5 May 2014 as the largest crowd-sourced festival of events, meet-ups, workshops and hackathons focused on the social, political, technological and commercial impacts of data. It brings together an anticipated 30,000 data practitioners across more than 200 events. Big Data Week Kuala Lumpur 2014 is organised with the support of the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia, and MAMPU (Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit).

The Bangsar South Knowledge Clinics series is an initiative undertaken by UOA to promote knowledge sharing and business networking amongst the ICT-related businesses of Malaysia. The series serves as a thought leadership platform that facilitates a series of technology-business forums hosted at the MSC Malaysia Cybercentre @ Bangsar South.
