As per World Economic Forum 2016 (Digital Transformation Initiatiaves) executive summary report, in the era of Digital Economy, combinatorial effects of base technologies, such as mobile, cloud, sensors, analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT), are accelerating change in various businesses.
Thus, across industries, it is imperative for companies in Sarawak to recognize that they have opportunities to use these digital tools and technologies to raise productivity, improve decision making, and gain competitive advantage.
To support Sarawak state government’s digital transformation initiatives, SAINS welcome all mobile, web, IoT, and data analytics related project proposals, especially in the following domains:
In Sarawak cities, the parking systems requires motorists to display parking coupons. The user has to go and buy the parking coupons at parking coupon booths or service provider offices. Users will display the parking coupons and parking attendants will manually check if the coupons are used correctly. The coupons have a parking time limit and needs to be changed with another coupons after parking time expiry.
The system has several drawbacks:
User need to solve the problem by developing a system for a parking system. Create a parking system solution so that:
Bus passengers in Sarawak normally need to wait at the bus stop without prior info of the details/status of the bus location, routes, etc. This is because the bus providers have not integrated their bus route and schedule info to popular mobile applications like Google Maps. Thus the tourist will not know which bus to use or route to reach their destinations. Bus service providers also do not have a good information of the number of passengers until they reach each bus stop to pick up their passengers.
User need to solve the problem by developing a smart bus tracking and management system. Create a smart bus system so that:
Brief idea of how it works:
Swiftlet farming is listed as on of the items in the 2018 Sarawak Digital Economy Strategy. Currently, farmers are using creative methods to attract swiftlet. In order to know which methods are effective, we need to count and record the number of swiftlet using machines.
Produce a solution that counts swiftlet. Here are some potential solutions:
White root is a serious problem to rubber plantations. It causes tree loss and consequent yield losses as recorded previously. The purpose of this early detection of white roots is to remove their sources when the trees are still young, in order to prevent other trees from being infected with the disease at maturity.
Design an early detection system of the disease (if possible to work in an open-field environment). Here are some potential solutions:
A lot of money loses in land and property fraud due to lack of transparency in existing system of land title registration. Land title theft is becoming common and rising in recent years, worse, lack of proper law in many countries that are able to protect landowners especially in case of forgery. There are several causes leading to the failure of current land title registration system, some of the major causes include historical land ownership data can be fractured and incomplete, land title registrations transactions record differ between institutions, and data can be altered. Other than that, partial paper-based system also causes a lot of human error, and the process is time consuming.
In order to get everyone agree on every stage of land titling transaction and to have the transaction records securely stored permanently, Blockchain technology can be used to precisely solve these problems.
Create a system underpinned by Blockchain technology so that:
Companies and government sections are expressing tremendous interests in participating into blockchain technology as it shows promising performances in data sharing and data immutability. One of the key properties of blockchain technology is in the identity management of its users which, when executed properly, ensures that only the right owner has the permission to perform a transaction. However, for an average person, maintaining a private key can be deem unnecessarily complex. Thus, it results in a slowdown on the blockchain technology adoption rate.
We want to abstract away the complexity and technology details involved in maintaining a private key while at the same time ensure utmost security using tried-and-true method. The idea is to have a user to own a piece of hardware that has the following capabilities:
In the mid 1980's the use of IT among state government agencies in Sarawak started to grow. Shortly thereafter, in 1991, Sarawak Information Systems Sdn. Bhd. (SAINS) was formed. SAINS was given the task of spearheading the development and implementation of IT within the Sarawak State Government to better integrate and utilize its resources. Our vision is to leverage IT as a core component in enabling Sarawak socio-economic development. Since then, SAINS has effectively enlarged and intensified the utilisation of ICT in the State of Sarawak.
Today, the SAINS group is an internationally recognised software solutions and IT services provider with over 700 employees supporting business partners and customers across multiple industry sectors. With 19 offices and subsidiaries in Malaysia as well as partners throughout South East Asia, SAINS solutions have been deployed in governments and corporations both within Malaysia as well as globally. These same solutions have won recognitions and awards both within the Asia Pacific region and internationally.
To ensure a critical mass of knowledge of mainstream technology, SAINS seeks out synergistic partnerships and alliances with leading technology firms in the industry. Together with our business partners, SAINS will continue to build strong business relations with government entities and multinational corporations in Malaysia and beyond.
