Fusionex Founder Ivan Teh Featured In Forbes

Fusionex International is pleased to announce that founder Ivan Teh has been recognized by Forbes as a key figure in the Malaysian Big Data World. The Fusionex founder and Managing Director are linked to an ASEAN-based software group, which provides solutions to firms opening up to digital transformation, in order to compete effectively in the global marketplace. Ivan Teh is well-acquainted with the struggles and difficulties associated with the start-up scene. Founders may be unable to pay themselves for many months and must work around the clock to beat the statistics.

Thanks to Teh’s perseverance, Fusionex today is reaping the benefits of creating its own software solutions. The main focus of the company is Big Data Analytics (BDA) and the Internet of Things (IoT). BDA uses advanced software coupled with massive computing power. The software examines data of various types in order to determine real patterns, associations, and trends. IoT provides sensors which have connectivity across networks, permitting them to collect data and exchange it.

According to Teh, speaking in an interview recently, “I understood what the market required in BDA and IoT, thanks to my previous experience working in multinational firms. There was a huge wave of data building up from the past few years, and effective methods of utilizing the data were needed. Through repeated attempts at solutions development and many long days, I was able to secure paying customers. My role in the company originally encompassed everything from administrative and managerial tasks to coding.”

The expectations for the use of BDA and IoT are promising ones. By 2019, the BDA market is expected to reach US$187 billion, while the IoT market will expand to US$1.7 trillion by 2020. Fusionex is positioned to capture a large portion of this market, particularly among the ASEAN nations.

Fusionex already has big-name clients using its software. Companies such as Hewlett-Packard, Daimler, Volkswagen, the Royal Bank of Scotland, United Overseas Bank, CIMB Group, MetLife and Starwood Hotels and Resorts as well as AirAsia, Kasikornbank and Resorts World are but a few examples. In fact, Fusionex, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM), has the distinction of competing with the likes of IBM, Oracle, and SAP. https://www.instagram.com/ivan_teh_runningman/
