  1. 1. Track Synopsis
  2. 2. Opportunities Scanning, Dissecting the Market for Clue Technology advancement coupled with improving connectivity, coverage and mobility, is changing the way people and businesses run their lives and depend on ICT. This is creating new demands and trends for ICT solutions, services and devices that present emerging opportunities for MSC Malaysia companies. MSC Malaysia companies should take advantage of these trends to develop new innovative products, services or solutions, or they risk becoming redundant and miss out on the market. Expected Benefits of the Topic The desired take home value for the audience: Ability to scan the near horizon for what’s happening right now and its way to them. Use the information gathered to review their market and marketing strategy for better results and/or identify opportunities to develop innovative products/services based on market demand. Innovating through Research by Pimpawan Saengnark, Director-Asia Pacific, The Nielsen Company Companies could improve their innovativeness if they understand how to conduct an effective research. Through this session, The Nielsen Company is going to share an easy tool that companies could use to conduct research without being dependant on other parties. Emerging Trends and Opportunities in ICT by Victor Lim, Vice President, Asia/Pacific Consulting Operations, IDC IDC recently concluded a project sponsored by MDeC to identify 15 emerging trends or opportunity areas that are attractive to MSC Malaysia companies. The areas were selected after careful analysis and investigation from a starting laundry list of over 100 areas. These emerging opportunities range from areas in general IT to Shared Services and Outsourcing and to Creative Multimedia and Content. The study is focused on practical business opportunities that MSC Malaysia companies could participate and will not touch on futuristic “Star Trek” areas which although interesting, are of limited business value at the moment. The opportunities were selected based on practical factors such as Malaysia’s current position, MSC Malaysia company capabilities, market growth, trends, etc. The focus of the presentation will be to share a summarized view of each of the 15 areas with the audience, describing the trend that is occurring, the emerging opportunity and the potential for MSC Malaysia to capture. A Glimpse Into Tomorrow by Mike Walsh, CEO, Tomorrow What interests most people is not the far future, but tomorrow. Somewhere in the world the future is already happening. You just need to know where to look. In this section, Mike Walsh will share his analysis of leading edge consumer trends and innovation case studies from his experiences in the cutting edge markets of Japan, Korea and China. 6 th MSC Malaysia InnoTech Summit: Ideas Launchpad | “Innovating Success in the New Economy” Track Synopsis

Length of Session 3 hours Expected Benefits of the Topic The desired take home value for the audience: Insights that would help the audience reinvent their companies and themselves so they can be successful leaders of growth. The Topic Why aren't more founding entrepreneurs successful CEOs? One reason is that their entrepreneurial strengths in one stage of growth often become liabilities in the next stage.

  4. 4. Expanding Your Market Overseas As Malaysia begins to position itself strategically in the knowledge-based economy, the services sector has been earmarked as its next engine of growth which then saw the birth of the Multimedia Super Corridor initiative in 1996. Many local Technopreneurs took up the challenge of creating ICT businesses with several achieving significant success including listing on stock exchanges from Bursa Malaysia to Singapore Exchange and even the Alternative Investment Market in London. Despite this only a few have been able to create successful companies beyond the shores of Malaysia. Globalization presents us with both opportunities as well as threats. Local Technopreneurs will need to quickly open up to the foreign market and compete on global standards. However, to venture abroad companies face extreme competition and in view of limited budgets and time/resources constraints, the companies also do not have proper access to the channels that can help them to open doors. These companies are also very often unprepared to export or have a foreign presence especially in relation to operational readiness, marketing strategies or adequate protection of their IP prior to venturing abroad resulting in poor performance and reception to their services and products. Go Global Program by Ir. Aziz Ismail With the above in mind, the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) together with Technopreneurs Association of Malaysia (TeAM) and New Entrepreneur Forum (NEF) are introducing the Go Global Program that looks at providing a systematic process to assist companies to “go global”. Expanding Your Market in the US: Close-Up Interview with Chris Chan, Man Hong, Maggie Tham & Azreen Latiff As part of the Go Global Program, TeAM and NEF together with MDeC brings this opportunity for companies to learn from the experiences of three successful Entrepreneurs, Mr Chris Chan, CEO of The Media Shoppe Bhd, Mr Siew Man Hon, CEO eWarna Sdn Bhd, Ms Maggie Tham, Founder eXS Inc. USA and Azreen who collectively provide different experiences and perspective in regards to venturing to the US Market. The Drill for Potential Pilot Companies Presentation by Joget, CRN Solutions, Ashtech Systems, Pentasoft Malaysia, Cetheus MSC Hear also from five different companies who are in the midst of planning to go abroad and see what their strategies are and how they are planning to attack the foreign market.   6 th MSC Malaysia InnoTech Summit: Ideas Launchpad | “Innovating Success in the New Economy” Track Synopsis
