Full Release: Dubai, 1 April – UEM Edgenta Berhad (“UEM Edgenta” or the “Company”), through its wholly owned subsidiary, Operon Middle East (“Operon”), has entered into a Memorandum of Business Exploration (“MoBE”) with Byte Blanket FZE (“Byte Blanket”) and Disrupt-X DMCC (“Disrupt-X”) to identify potential technological collaborations in supporting sustainable smart cities and introduce digital solutions in the international markets.

This collaboration is part of UEM Edgenta’s continued foray into the integrated facility management market in the Middle East as the Company focuses on its regional expansion strategy, and at the same time developing tech-enabled integrated solutions, aligned with its ‘Edgenta of the Future 2025’ (“EoTF 2025”) vision.

The MoBE will pave the way for future collaborations in exploring and identifying potential opportunities with a view to expand UEM Edgenta’s digital offerings through expertise in built environment, integrated capabilities and consultancy services to clients in large scale community, commercial services and smart cities.

Disrupt-X is the provider of an end-to-end scalable Internet of Things (“IoT”) platform solution, while Byte Blanket owns the Enter Bubble Technologies (“EBT”), a disruptive digital framework with the potential to revolutionise smart cities and industries through spontaneous micro social networking across the globe.

Syahrunizam Samsudin, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Edgenta said, “Through our regional partnerships, we will explore opportunities on bringing our collective visions to life. We are confident that our combined expertise will be the solutions of choice for the Middle East and other international markets. The future of cities will be shaped by connectivity, mobility, resilience and sustainability. Revolutionising smart city development requires future-proof technology solutions that enables sustainable urbanisation and supports the wellbeing of a community in a low-carbon ecosystem.”

UEM Edgenta is also looking to introduce the concept of ‘Hyper-Aware Buildings’ together with Byte Blanket and Disrupt-X as part of the smart cities’ technology, with IoT being the eyes and ears of hyper-aware facilities. With the combination of IoT and contextual data, buildings are made more adaptive to its environment as well as its occupants’ needs, which allows situational awareness for better efficiency, productivity, reliability, safety, and security.

Present during the signing ceremony earlier this week was Syahrunizam Samsudin, Asim Sajwani, President of Disrupt-X, Yaseen Al Jaizani, CEO of Disrupt-X, Vijay Antony Alen, Owner, KV Holdings Inc. and Founder, Chairman, Group CEO and Chief Product Officer at Smile Turtle Group, and Murugesan Prakasam, Executive Director & Global Head of Operations of Byte Blanket with YB Dato’ Sri Reezal Merican Naina Merican, Malaysia’s Minister of Housing and Local Government in presence.

The document exchange today was witnessed by YAB Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Prime Minister of Malaysia alongside YB Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, Malaysia’s Senior Minister of International Trade & Industry, YB Dato’ Sri Dr. Adham Baba, Malaysia’s Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, YB Dato’ Seri Mahdzir Khalid, Malaysia’s Minister of Rural Development and YB Datuk Arthur Joseph Kurup, Deputy Minister of Works of Malaysia.
