CYBERJAYA: Cyberview Sdn Bhd has embarked on a mission to attract 90 global technology companies to Cyberjaya in an effort to reenergise its role as a multimedia super corridor city of choice.
Its managing director, Faris Yahaya said the companies could help raise Cyberjaya ecosystem through nine areas of focus.
He said the emphasis on the nine areas did not mean that Cyberview had strayed from its plan to turn Cyberjaya into a global information and communication technology (ICT) hub.
“Rather, we are more focused now. Malaysia has 35 cyber cities and centres and to differentiate Cyberjaya, we are striving to reposition Cyberjaya into a world’s preferred, complete and attractive technology hub within four years,” he told reporters after the launch of the Cyberjaya Creative Playground Festival here today.
Faris said five of the areas were ICT-based, namely information security, creative content, mobile Internet, cloud computing, and big data analytics while four others were under technology clusters, namely green technology, biotechnology, wearable technology, and smart grid.
“Some of the companies identified made the global top 10 brands in the nine focal areas.
“We cannot expect all the 90 companies to be here, but if we can get at least 10 per cent of them, we will be able to put Cyberjaya on the global map again,” he said, adding that Cyberview had yet to initiate discussions with them.
“We are in the process of preparing ourselves because we want to make sure that we have something to offer them and it’s not going to be a cold call,” he said.
Among top companies identified were Google, Cloudera and Ubisoft.
