MDEC Data Analytics and AI Readiness Assessment Tool

As part of its implementation of the MIA Digital Technology Blueprint, the Institute is working together with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), a government agency under the purview of the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia. MDEC’s primary mandate is to nurture, enable, and empower digital businesses. Its continued efforts to drive the digitalisation agenda includes amplifying and upscaling the use of data analytics.

MDEC has launched a Data Analytics and AI Readiness Assessment Tool in partnership with global market intelligence firm, International Data Corporation (IDC). The tool is an online self-assessment targeted for senior leaders and C-suite executives in business, operations and information technology to capture a comprehensive analysis of the readiness of their organisations as they invest on data analytics initiatives, ready themselves to harness artificial intelligence and stay prepared for the future of intelligence.

This complimentary online assessment tool assists organisations to identify their data analytics and AI readiness, using six dimensions for assessment: Organisation, People, Process, Technology, Data and Use Case.

Within 10 minutes, organisations will:

  • Learn about their data, analytics and AI strategies and gain insights into the common challenges that they face.
  • Receive a personalised report as each dimension is completed and unveil how organisations can bring it to the next level.

While there are only three compulsory dimensions – Organisation, People and Process Dimensions, completing the remaining dimensions –Technology, Data and Use Case will help give organisations an all-rounded, clear understanding of its readiness level.

The Institute encourages members who are senior leaders and C-suite executives in business (including public practice), operations and IT to make use of the tool.
