Increase in Job Demand in Malaysia for Information Technology (IT), Software Engineering & Computer Science Professionals

I didn’t want to leave Penang for my studies but EduSpiral provided detailed information to help me make my decision. Vincent Lim, Software Engineering, Asia Pacific University (APU)

According to the Robert Walters Salary Report 2018, the Information and Technology sector is also expected to grow the fastest next year in a candidate-driven market with salary increments ranging between 20 to 30 per cent. Robert Walters, a specialist professional recruitment consultancy company shares that they see a high demand in IT jobs spanning across the fintech, banking, as well as the healthcare sector such as data analysts, software engineers and cyber security. Hiring activity will remain active in 2018, driven mostly by continuous growth of e-commerce, digitalisation, fintech, shared services and better organisational optimisation.

The IT sector saw a spike in demand for software developers skilled in programming languages in 2017 as organisations looked to fill hybrid positions with top candidates who were adept in more than one coding language. This trend is set to continue as we see more need such as in the implementation of the Digital Free Trade Zone and businesses moving towards digitalisation. Candidates with high potential or niche skills are also expected to enjoy increments of between 25 per cent to 30 per cent when they move jobs, although a raise of 15-20 per cent is common business practice.

The information technology (IT) industry is expected to face a shortage of between 7,000 and 15,000 professionals in the next two years, as Malaysia rides the wave of the growing digital economy. Malaysian Digital Economy Corp (MDEC) CEO Datuk Yasmin Mahmood said currently there are more than 3,000 companies registered under the Multimedia Super Corridor and the industry is currently in need of specialised workers in various IT fields.

“We project that by 2025, the IT industry will require one million specialised working professionals as the industry is experiencing a rampant growth,” she said.

To keep up with the growth, many companies have to resort to foreign talents that are capable of moving in tandem with the current trend and needs in the IT industry. Malaysian Employers Federation ED Datuk Shamsuddin Bardan said many IT companies are forced to seek foreign expertise, especially for the high-end sectors such as the big data analytics and artificial intelligence.

I had wanted to go to another university near my house for IT after my A-Levels. After consulting EduSpiral, I realised that I should choose the best university for IT so that I can gain the necessary knowledge and skills for a successful career in this competitive field.

“The country still could not fulfil the requirement set by IT companies, especially when everyone is moving towards the Industry 4.0 and adopting technology such as big data analytics.

MORE experts are needed to fill up the positions in the data-driven industry, backed by the growing demand from local companies, said Malaysia Digital Economy Corp Sdn Bhd (MDEC).

MDEC head of strategic partnership Somasundaram Nagappan said there are currently 6,000 working professionals in big data analytics sector through MDEC’s programmes. Malaysia Digital Economy Corp Sdn Bhd (MDEC) targets to have 20,000 data science professionals by 2020.

fears that some people might lose their jobs in Malaysia, especially in the manufacturing sector. There have been various reports stating how companies need to adopt the big data movement to remain relevant, or risk losing out in the evolving market. Directly, more companies have begun to engage and hire data professionals to tap into the big data potential, creating a big pool of demand for local data science fresh graduates.

A report from the recent Digital Workforce of The Future by LinkedIn, which revealed that a combination of skills encompassing Big Data, data analytics and web development registered a 21% growth in demand. In Malaysia, the top five in-demand digital skills are big data, software and user testing, mobile development, Cloud computing and software engineering management.

According to the recent Robert Walters Global Salary Survey 2017, the broad sectors which may offer the highest salary packages in Malaysia are information technology, financial services and shared services. The technology sector in Malaysia is set to see the highest demand in terms of jobs and salary hikes.

Since 2013, the technology sector has seen salary hikes and this trend is expected to continue over the next couple of years. Meanwhile, Robert Walters Malaysia managing director Sally Raj says software developers and cyber security experts can expect significant salary raises of up to 25% when moving jobs in 2017, as cyber security professionals will be highly sought after across a number of industries, especially in the banking sector.

Commenting on the technology sector, Raj says the technology sector, especially for niche positions, may see at least a 30% salary rise this year compared with 27% last year. For example, in senior positions, a chief technology officer can expect an annual salary of between RM360,000 and RM600,000 this year from RM350,000 and RM540,000 in 2016.

EduSpiral took us around to tour the campus and the hostel giving me & my family the assurance that we are making the right choice.
Jerry Cheong, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

A program manager may bring in an annual salary of between RM240,000 and RM360,000 from RM216,000 and RM336,000 last year. A solution architect, however, could see an annual salary hike of up to RM180,000-RM324,000 from RM120,000-RM192,000.

Hays regional director for Malaysia Tom Osborne concurs that the technology sector will likely see the highest jump in salary this year. “The key sectors in Malaysia that will see pay hikes include information technology. Areas in IT where growth will occur include IT infrastructure systems administration and management positions.

For instance, a network engineer in the systems administration side could rake in an annual salary of between RM96,000 and RM144,000 this year compared to between RM72,000 and RM120,000 last year.

According to the JobStreet.com 2017 Salary Report, IT/computer consulting jobs (IT, science, engineering and technical) for senior managers in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Putrajaya command the highest average maximum monthly salary of around RM18,000.

Meanwhile, IT/computer workers in consumer and fast-moving consumer goods industries earn the highest average minimum salary of RM14,000 within the same region.

“Organisations in Malaysia are reinventing themselves for the digital world that has seen many invest in

upgrading their IT infrastructure. This has created demand for talent who are well versed in this area and as a consequence, wages have increased.

“Technology is going to be at the forefront over the next few years, as businesses like financial services (banking and insurance), fast-moving consumer goods companies and retailers gear up to adopt technology. Furthermore, organisations are now utilising digital channels to grow their businesses.”

With the advent of financial technology (fintech), Raj foresees further growth in technology usage in the financial services sector, partly thanks to the recent regulatory “sandbox” framework for fintech. The sandbox refers to a safe space where businesses can test innovative products, services, business models and delivery mechanisms.

As digital, mobile and e-commerce-related companies expand their businesses, she says there will be an

increase in the number of employers recruiting mobile engineers and software developers in 2017.

According to Human Resources Online, prospects are bright as employers are driven by Malaysia’s blend of price point and quality. There is an uptake in the creation of centres of excellence, resulting in increased demand for specialist talent further up the value chain.

Malaysia is currently less competitive on cost point alone compared to other typical offshore centres, such as Chennai and Manila. However, if you factor in the quality, seniority and specialist nature of IT professional that can be hired here, Malaysia is now moving towards being a cost-effective alternative to Singapore and Hong Kong, a move away from the typical offshore BPO model.

Moving into Q1 2017, significant growth is expected across the following sectors:

97.4 per cent of Multimedia University (MMU) graduates were able to secure employment within six months of completing their studies.

  • Infrastructure services such as networks, platforms and specialist areas such as cloud and virtualisation; Salaries of IT directors with more than 10 years of experience pegged at RM250k-360k per annum;
  • ERP, EAI and other specialist off-the-peg solutions from large vendors such as SAP, Oracle and Salesforce;
  • Solutions architect for application development can take home in the range of RM180k-250k per month.
  • Business transformation, an increasingly dominant area of IT, leading to demand for professionals in project management, program management, PMO and change management.

PIKOM ICT Job Market Outlook Report for Malaysia

PIKOM Research Commitee Chair, Woon Tai Hai, believes that the challenging economic climate in 2016 may have also influenced the hiring decisions for ICT professionals. — Pikom

Pikom (The National ICT Association of Malaysia) is targeting a 6.7% growth for the average monthly salary of IT professionals this year, bringing it to RM9,056, which is more than double the amount in 2007. This is because Pikom believes that the economy is on track for a gradual recovery this year.

Pikom expects the ICT (Information and Communications Technology) contribution to GDP to grow from RM152.1bil in 2015 to about RM164bil in 2016, which is four times the value ten years ago. The official GDP data for 2016 is expected to be released by the Department of Statistics in September this year. Pikom also anticipates the share of contribution of the ICT industry to the economy in 2016 to increase to about 18.2% from 17.8% the previous year, with ICT services being the main driver.

The average monthly salary of an ICT professional in Malaysia increased from RM8,114 in 2015 to

RM8,484 in 2016, registering a growth rate of 4.6%. However, the National ICT Association of Malaysia (PIKOM) has also projected that the average monthly salary growth for 2017 will be above RM9,000, a 6.7% increase over 2016 on the back of a better-than-expected performance of the economy this year. It is heartening to note that looking at a 10-year period, the ICT industry average monthly salary has doubled since 2007.

Among the developments that will have significant impact on the growth and success of the industry include the launch of the Digital Free Trade Zone and the growing digital economy led by e-commerce. The zone is set to become a regional hub for SMEs. There are some very lucrative segments in the ICT sector to work in; employees in the automotive/heavy industry/machinery industries were paid the most last year among ICT professionals, according to Pikom.

The report was based on the salary data provided by Jobstreet.com. It tracks the salaries of ICT

professionals in five job categories namely fresh graduate, junior executive, senior executive, manager and senior manager levels across 22 industries.

Among the five categories, the fresh graduate one grew the least, at 3.7% compared to 5.3% the previous year. The study also found that there were 11,227 job openings for ICT professionals in 2016, where almost 80% consisted of jobs for the junior executive and senior executive levels.

“Overall our ICT Professionals have been able to command relatively steady and high salaries not just due to their set of specific skills, experience and knowledge, but that the industry has also kept up the pace with the evolutions and revolutions of information technology. Albeit the ups and downs on the year-on-year of the average salary growth, the local trend is still on the upside” said Woon.

Data is everywhere. In fact, the amount of digital data that exists is growing at a rapid rate—in fact, more than 2.7 zettabytes of data exist in today’s digital universe, and that is projected to grow to 180 zettabytes in 2025.

All this data—from your photos to the Fortune 500’s financials—has only recently begun to be analyzed to tease out insights that can help organizations improve their business. That’s why more organizations are seeking professionals who can make sense of all the data.

Data science, also known as data analytics or data-driven science, is an interdisciplinary field about scientific methods, processes, and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured, similar to data mining.

Data science is a multidisciplinary blend of data inference, algorithm development, and technology in

order to solve analytically complex problems. At the core is data. Millions of raw information, streaming in and stored in enterprise data warehouses. Much to learn by mining it. Advanced capabilities we can build with it. Data science is ultimately about using this data in creative ways to generate business value

Data scientists combine statistics, mathematics, programming, problem-solving, capturing data in ingenious ways, the ability to look at things differently to find patterns, along with the activities of cleansing, preparing, and aligning the data.

Dealing with unstructured and structured data, Data Science is a field that encompasses anything related to data cleansing, preparation, and analysis. Put simply, Data Science is an umbrella term for techniques used when trying to extract insights and information from data.

economy, with one minister declaring it as key to the nation’s aspirations. The groundwork has been laid down, with the relevant agencies and certain technology multinationals having put their heads together to develop a big data policy framework. There are also plans for the country to appoint a chief data scientist over the next few years, a move aimed at developing local capabilities in data analytics.

In 2015, only 80 data scientists in local industry in Malaysia, targeting 1,500 by 2020. MALAYSIA’S national ICT custodian Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) said that seven public and private institutes of higher learning in country will be offering data science courses to university students, graduates and working professionals for careers in data analytics.

A report from the recent Digital Workforce of The Future by LinkedIn, which revealed that a combination of skills encompassing Big Data, data analytics and web development registered a 21% growth in demand. In Malaysia, the top five in-demand digital skills are big data, software and user testing, mobile development, Cloud computing and software engineering management.

Jerry Cheong, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

Asean Data Analytics Exchange (ADAX) CEO Sharala Axryd believes data professionals such as data engineers, data analysts and data scientists are the “sexiest jobs” of the 21st century.

Sharala told The Malaysian Reserve in a recent email interview that these careers are in hot demand due to their highly valued skill sets.

“The world has positioned data professionals as jobs of the future, as the prospects of data science and analytics are endless.

“Besides a healthy remuneration package, data professionals are highly sought after and are needed across multiple industries within the next few years,” Sharala said.

She further said local data science fresh graduates can demand starting pay in the range of RM4,000-RM8,000 — making it the highest paid entrylevel job in the country today.

An experienced professional in the field can demand up to RM15,000, she said.

Not satisfied after completing our diploma at Inti & EduSpiral helped us with the credit transfer. He arranged for us to talk to lecturers & staff at APU to guide us on which IT course to study.
Chin Mun & Li Ching, Business Computing at Asia Pacific University

“Data has become the new oil, as companies are constantly inundated with data that they need deciphering in order to create value for their products, services, customers and themselves.”

Sharala opined that it is important for the relevant bodies to create awareness among both youths and their parents, so that the latter can encourage their children to pursue beyond “traditional” jobs.

“I believe there will never be a shortage of data now and in the future, but there is a shortage of data professionals.

“People have no idea how huge is the demand for data scientists, data engineers and data analysts,” Sharala said.

She acknowledged many enterprises are struggling with the complexity of today’s big data and data science ecosystem.

“Though they recognise the opportunity of emerging practices, the shortage of trained data professionals remains at the top of the list of data science challenges that enterprises face.”
