KUALA LUMPUR: AwanBiru Technology Bhd (Awantec), having been appointed as a Google Cloud Authorised Training Partner (ATP), aims to train 5,000 employees in the public sector for the financial year 2023 (FY23).
The company can now deliver certified curriculum courses from the Google cloud platform to users in both the public and private sectors, as well as the general public.
Its chief executive officer Rezal Rahman said Awantec could support the government in its efforts to execute the Digital Blueprint and achieve its digital transformation goals, specifically focusing on upskilling talent.
"To start, we target to conduct instructor-led training for 5,000 learners in FY23. The training and upskilling are delivered in various modes, including online, on-demand, and in-classroom training, as well as customised labs and workshops," he said in a statement today.
Awantec is currently a premier partner of Google Cloud serving the public sector of Malaysia.
The company seeks to offer official training to public sector employees whilst empowering them to adopt Google Cloud technologies in light of the recent adoption and shift towards digitalisation.
Awantec was recognised for its achievements in the Google Cloud ecosystem, helping various government agencies in Malaysia improve efficiency and productivity through greater collaboration and digital transformation.
"The Awantec advantage is in our ATP team working in tandem with our managed service provider team to provide end-to-end solutions, from implementation through migration and training.
"This aligns with the company's strategy to broaden products and service offerings and widen our customer base moving forward," added Rezal.
Awantec signed a Cloud Framework Agreement (CFA) with the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU) and Google Cloud Malaysia Sdn Bhd in March.
As an MSP provider, Awantec targets to support government agencies with cloud services like data analytics, cloud migration, and cloud-based systems integration, as well as products and training related to artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) mapping, compute, storage, and workspace.
