Event Details

*We encourage AMCHAM members to forward to your SME partners!*


The widespread availability of cloud computing services is radically reducing entry barriers for innovative companies offering new and exciting products and services within the growing digital economy. Gone are the days when startup companies need to allocate significant proportions of their initial capital to setting up their own IT system and defences. AMCHAM and MDEC, with the support of the U.S. Embassy, invite Malaysian small businesses to this half-day program which will shed light on how SMEs can use the cloud to become the giants of tomorrow!


This free-of-charge event is open to both members and non-members. The program includes speakers from local 'success stories' that have grown their business through the cloud, as well as experts from major U.S. tech companies to explain the cybersecurity benefits of cloud technology. It will be of particular relevance to SMEs within the manufacturing and logistics space that are interested in learning more about cloud technology.
