industry and the need to deliver service quality. They are required to direct and deliver projects successfully within their specified timeframe. Often Project Managers are not technically skilled within software development, but they are skilled people managers. Those with AGILE methodology experience are highly sought.

Business Analysts – Analysts with both technical and business acumen are in demand to translate business plans into technical requirements by liaising with clients, business users, production teams and vendors. Candidates need experience in performing UAT and SIT. Demand for these analysts is highest within the financial and IT consultancy industries.

IT Security, Risk, Compliance and Audit specialists – With technology moving to more sophisticated platforms such as the Cloud, IT Security professionals continue to be in high demand. Skills involved in the implementation and monitoring of IT policy are expected to be in great demand going forward as companies look to ensure that data is protected within the virtualization technologies.

Mobile Application Developers (Android/IOS) – This is still a relatively new area and most Malaysian candidates lack an iOS and Android development background. Senior Mobile Developers prefer to work freelance as they can receive a relatively stable income from projects. Also, talented individuals often choose to move to neighbouring countries for more lucrative salaries.

multinational data and development centres are expanding in Asia and creating new job opportunities. However, the local candidate pool still lacks the required skills.

Many institutions have opted to introduce shared services or data centres in Malaysia as it is seen as an attractive country to set up infrastructure. Centres are cost effective due to lower labour and set up costs, as well as favourable government legislation.

In Malaysia, financial institutions are still using relatively old operating systems and platforms (AS400, Cobol Mainframe), compared to other developed regions.

In the past year there has been an influx of applicants from India, Indonesia and the Philippines. However, government legislation continues to restrict foreign workers and only a limited pool of candidates specialising in niche areas have been able to secure positions on a contract basis.
