The much-anticipated Google Cloud Day 2023, organized by PointStar, a leader in cloud transformation and digital solutions, has taken place at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The event highlighted Google Cloud’s sophisticated AI and data solutions designed for catalyzing business transformation, shedding light on practical use cases for improved productivity.

In collaboration with Google Cloud, the event spanned the entire day and featured an array of captivating activities, including keynote speeches, interactive breakout sessions, live showcases of solutions, and networking opportunities.

The occasion also marked the introduction of the Digital Acceleration for Learning and Industry Adoption (DALIA) – an Advanced Productivity Program, established in partnership with the Malaysian Productivity Corporation (MPC), a government agency operating under the Ministry of Investment, Trade, and Industry (MITI).

PointStar CEO, Justin Lee, remarked, “We are excited to present Google Cloud Day 2023, a platform that not only showcased AI and data solution innovations but also provided a forward-looking perspective on their practical applications across diverse organizations.

“This event isn’t just about technology; it’s about empowering businesses to drive transformation, embrace innovation, and prepare for an exceptional journey of growth.”

The attendance at Google Cloud Day 2023 exceeded 200 participants. The event accentuated the integration of advanced data analytics, modern cloud-based applications, and artificial intelligence (AI) into workflows to effectively address crucial business challenges.

Distinguished industry leaders, including Sarawak Digital Economy Corporation (SDEC), PIKOM, TNB, Logitech, Samsung, Kissflow, and JumpCloud, actively participated in sessions that deliberated on subjects such as the transformative potential of no-code tools and the future of work.

Patrick Wee, Google cloud’s country manager in Malaysia, expressed, “The democratization of software development is becoming increasingly prevalent within organizations, and by 2024, over 65% of applications are projected to be created using low- or no-code tools.

“Collaborating with PointStar, Google Cloud is dedicated to making application development accessible to users of varying skill levels through tools like Duet AI for AppSheet. These tools can assist organizations in reallocating resources and expertise to high-impact tasks and projects.”

Google Cloud Day 2023 seamlessly aligned with MPC’s Malaysia Productivity Blueprint, aimed at nurturing a future-ready workforce and propelling digitalization for enhanced productivity.

PointStar’s partnership with MPC played a crucial role in boosting the ongoing DALIA program, with PointStar serving as the digital solutions consultant to facilitate the creation of applications that address workflow and productivity challenges within organizations, utilizing AppSheet, Google’s no-code development platform.

Zahid Ismail, deputy director general of MPC, commented, “We extend our heartfelt gratitude to PointStar for their invaluable collaboration on the DALIA program. This partnership underscores the importance of fostering strong ties between the private and public sectors, as it underscores the immense value of knowledge exchange and shared expertise. Google Cloud Day 2023 vividly exemplifies the transformative potential of technology in fostering growth and productivity for our nation.”

Leveraging the advanced tools and ecosystems crafted by Google Cloud and PointStar, MPC aims to amplify productivity in companies spanning various sectors. The DALIA program anticipates engaging more than 100 participating companies in 2023, setting the groundwork for future initiatives focused on impactful solutions.
