  • Find out how much Information Technology (IT) Professionals are earning in Malaysia
  • Digital economy is targeted to contribute 22.6% of Malaysia’s GDP and create over 500,000 jobs by 2025.
  • As of 15 April 2022, a total of RM92.9 million was channelled to 13,892 businesses to support SMEs and MTCs to digitalise their operations and trade channels.
  • Digital technology is also being applied in people management, marketing, customer engagement, data analysis and many others.

Technology played a critical role in the pandemic world and has never been more important during and post-pandemic. There were massive innovations in how business was done during the pandemic, powered by information technology.

Companies’ rapid shift towards digitalisation during the pandemic created a thirst for talent in the IT field, especially in entry-level and middle-management positions. Of the 10 roles with the greatest number of LinkedIn job posts in Q1 2022 (January 1 – March 31), 5 of them were IT-related, namely Software Engineer, JavaScript Developer, Java Software Engineer, DevOps Engineer, and Full Stack Engineer. Most of these jobs were already in high demand before the pandemic.

As a result of this sustained demand, salaries for workers in digital technology industries are expected to improve in 2022 according to a report published by the National Tech Association of Malaysia (Pikom). Seeing the potential of this wave of digitalisation, the government stepped up its efforts in encouraging the growth of the digital economy, targeting for the digital economy to contribute 22.6% of Malaysia’s gross domestic product (GDP) and create over 500,000 jobs by 2025.

This will be driven by the government’s emphasis on enabling the growth of e-commerce, trade of electrical
products and greater adoption of technology and automation in the manufacturing sector. Malaysia will
continue to prioritise the adoption of digital consumer tools (e-commerce and digital payments); attracting,
training, and retaining digital talent; fostering digital entrepreneurial ventures; providing fast fibre optics
and mobile broadband Internet access; as well as coordinating innovation between universities, businesses
and digital authorities.

As an example, the government in collaboration with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) launched the MyDigitalWorkforce Work in Tech (MYWiT) initiative to improve the skills and capabilities of Malaysian workers by incentivising companies to hire locals for digital tech and services jobs via salary and training subsidies.

Meanwhile, as of 15 April 2022, a total of RM92.9 million was channelled to 13,892 businesses to support and encourage SMEs and Technical and Digital Mid-tier Companies (MTCs) to digitalise their operations
and trade channels. With strong global demand, digital transformation in all sectors, and the massive push for digitalisation by the government, employment prospects in the IT field will remain bright for years to come.

This will be especially true in emerging fields such as cloud computing and artificial intelligence, which are fast gaining popularity. Digital technology is also being applied in people management, marketing, customer engagement, data analysis and many others. While this creates jobs, it also makes the IT job market very competitive, as businesses and industries that are in a hurry to digitalise will look to hire the best candidates
because they cannot afford to be left behind.

Attracting and retaining top talent will be a crucial priority for companies as this will affect their bottom line both in the short term and the long term. On the other hand, given that the IT industry trends evolve very rapidly, employees will have to ensure they constantly keep themselves up to date with the latest technological advancements to stay relevant.
