TM’s Credence to empower organization’s digital capabilities
Despite digital transformation being accelerated by the pandemic, many businesses are still only in the early stages of embracing their full digital capabilities. In fact, most businesses only opted to transform their business due to the pandemic to ensure business continuity.
As such, there are still many areas in an organization that needs to be transformed to ensure they are able to remain competitive and productive. However, in countries like Malaysia, a lot of businesses, from large enterprises to SMEs are still unsure of how much they need to transform.
This is why Credence, a new cloud and digital services company by Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) comes in. Credence aims to enhance the capacities of businesses and the public sector in their journey toward digital transformation.
