Humber IT, one of East Yorkshire’s leading IT providers, has been selected by the Department for Trade and Industry to represent British technology companies at the UK Mega Technology Mission to Malaysia in October 2017.
Humber IT will be part of a delegation of 50 companies, including leading UK names such as BAE Systems, travelling to Kuala Lumpur this autumn. The purpose of the visit is to showcase British technological expertise to the Malaysian market. Organised by the Department for International Trade, in conjunction with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the British High Commission in Malaysia, Humber IT hopes to help drum up business for the UK and for the Humber region.
As well as a trade fair and a reception at the Palace of the Sultan of Selangor, Humber IT will also be meeting with pre-selected Malaysian companies who have expressed an interest in working with British companies who offer cloud computing solutions.
‘The beauty of the cloud,’ said Humber IT’s Lead Consultant, Phil Paterson, ‘is that it is truly borderless. The web is changing the way people do business – you don’t need to be down the street any more. If you’ve got the right skills you can offer them to customers anywhere in the world. It’s making the world much smaller.’
Humber IT are based at The One Business Village in Hull and are a licensed Microsoft Silver Partner which is why they were invited to explain and promote the benefits of cloud computing to the Malaysian market.
But why Malaysia? ‘There are cities being built in Malaysia,’ Phil Paterson explained, ‘which are being constructed from the ground up as ‘smart’ cities. These cities have the latest technologies built in as standard, so that traffic, people and even individual items can be tracked and managed to help run the city more effectively. These cities need experts with an understanding of what technologies are required – and that’s where we come in.’
