USTDA Advances Malaysia’s Smart City Priorities

USTDA’s grant to the Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) will fund technical assistance to support the development of the Iskandar Malaysia Urban Observatory (IMUO).  The Iskandar Region comprises five cities in the state of Johor and Malaysia’s southern development corridor bordering Singapore.  The IMUO will include a centralized data center, IT platform and command center to enhance regional planning, development and management based on real-time data and intelligence. The project represents a potential opportunity for U.S. suppliers of advanced analytics, cloud and platform services, data center components, and security solutions.
