Enterprise software specialist announces major public sector contract win in Malaysia
Competition in the enterprise software market in the Far East has dramatically increased following the recent expansion of middleware and enterprise IT infrastructure vendor, TmaxSoft into the Malaysian market.
Over the past quarter alone TmaxSoft become the leading database provider in the Malaysian public sector, knocking out Oracle and its database management system (DBMS).
TmaxSoft’s Tibero was chosen as the DBMS solution and its web application solution JEUS was also selected by Malaysia’s Ministry of Human Resources (MoHR).
TmaxSoft will migrate the existing Oracle database and web application server products used by the MoHR job placement system, which is accessed by an average of 300,000 concurrent users. TmaxSoft also plans on employing a local partner to perform some redevelopment and technical support such as system maintenance.
This advance into the Southeast Asian market follows TmaxSoft’s recent expansion into the Chinese market through its joint venture with Inspur. Many industry sources view the Malaysian deal as the start of a full-fledged expansion of DBMS business in the Southeast Asian public sector.
The Malaysian government is also reviewing possible redevelopment of databases in other public corporations and ministries, such as the Ministry of Education (MOE), Ministry of Home Affairs (KDN), Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia (LHDNM), National Public Service Commission (SPA), and Malaysian Railway (KTMB), for system enhancement.
