Software development companies in Malaysia have steadily increased their software development portfolio to include web design, web application development, mobile application development, desktop application development, software maintenance and much more. This is fuelling higher demand for skilled software development candidates.

High-quality agile software development is definitely a priority. There are many software companies in Malaysia that offer a fully-fledged and multi-faceted portfolio of agile software development service offerings, from Facebook app development to visually appealing and highly interactive apps for iOS and Android. Their agile software development portfolio often consists of technologies such as PHP, Java, .NET, Android, iOS & Windows Phone, XHTML, JQuery and HTML.

A trend still evident is the increased number of infrastructure set ups. Many institutions have introduced Shared Services and Data Centres. The major attraction is the cost effectiveness to be gained through labour, initial set up and general government legislation.

We continue to see a skills shortage in the areas of IT security, risk, compliance and audit. One of the main factors behind the shortage is the inability of employers in Malaysia to offer salaries that can compete with other countries. While neighbouring countries are also experiencing a shortage of these skills, they are able to offer more attractive salary packages and thus secure candidates.

Another factor is the lack of opportunity to train people locally in technologies such as SAP, Mainframe, CISC, JCL and Cobol.

In the past year, we have seen an influx in applications from India and the Philippines. However given government legislation, only a limited number of these candidates have secured jobs. Yet a large number of these people possess strong development skills.
