The event took place at the Hannover Messe 2024 trade show in Germany, which is the world’s largest industrial technology exhibition where companies from the energy, digital, and mechanical and electrical engineering sectors gathered to map solutions for the future of energy supply and manufacturing.

With topics exhibited including digitalisation, artificial intelligence and machine learning, the strategic partnership between STDCx, Orangeleaf Consulting and Mendix aims to foster technological advancement with Mendix’s low-code, nurture local talent, and promote digital transformation initiatives within these industries in Selangor, Malaysia.

In tabling the 2024 Selangor State Budget in November 2023, Chief Minister YAB Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari committed RM13.85 million to elevate the role of technical and vocational education in Selangor to a higher level.

Additionally, Mendix’s low-code platform was catapulted into the Parliament’s spotlight as the cutting-edge technology set to transform the state’s technological development.

During the event, Selangor Chief Minister Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said, “What sets Mendix apart as a low-code platform is its speed to market as opposed to the traditional form of coding.”

According to Amirudin, those who do not have a coding background can also rapidly adapt to Mendix’s low-code and seamlessly develop software that caters to an organisation’s needs.

Therefore, the partnership aligns with Selangor’s mission to promote technological advancement, reduce the digital divide, and further increase economic growth in the state.

“We are committed to collaborating closely with Mendix and other stakeholders to maximise the benefits of this partnership.

“This understanding with Orangeleaf Consulting is a testament to our commitment and we intend to invite similar partnerships with interested parties in this rapidly growing space of the digital economy,” he added.

Meanwhile, Orangeleaf Consulting Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder Ellice Ng Pui San said, “We are happy to be recognised as the sole consultancy in Malaysia that will be working closely with the STDCx to equip the workforce with Mendix’s low-code technology that is needed to thrive in this vibrant digital economy.”

Ellice also mentioned that there is great potential in the talent pool development in Malaysia, and low-code can play an important role in raising tech talent to compete locally and globally.

“Low-code transforms the way programmers develop systems and applications by enabling business users and tech individuals with different technical levels to build applications quickly and efficiently, utilising a visual interface through the Mendix platform.

“Thus far, we have successfully groomed local tech talents to support businesses globally, especially with the rise of low-code solutions from various industry sectors,” she added.

With over 296,656 members, the Mendix low-code community is all across the globe. The global low-code platform market revenue is valued at almost US$22.5 billion in 2022 and is forecast to reach approximately US$32 billion in 2024.
