Ivan Teh and his firm Fusionex International, offer an usual and highly successful path in reaching the heights in the cumulative growth rate since its launch in 2006.
Selangor MY, Malaysia – July 10, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —
Fusionex International and Fusionex founder are pleased to announce that the AIM-listed big data company began in 2006 with little more than the efforts and vision of Teh, and has achieved an astounding 1,000 percent cumulative growth rate in the ensuing years. Perhaps even more notable is the fact that Fusionex used no angel funding or venture capital sources. The only source of funding was cash from satisfied customers and clients. During the initial six months following the launch, Ivan typically put in eighteen-hour workdays to identify customer needs, as well as to build effective software platforms.
In a recent discussion with an interviewer, the Managing Director explained, “I was resolved to provide my customers a solution which could be easily utilized in order to make sense of their masses of data. It is easy to become confused when looking at the many big data options available. Most companies don’t want to do the work required, and may not have the necessary skill sets to do the job. This was my starting point.”
“If you have tried to do the work of solving complex problems while making the solutions easy to use, you will understand the difficulty of the task I set for myself. I did everything from preparing the templates to coding the software to completing documentation” he says. “The positive aspect of that experience was the intensity and challenge of the period. I never was bored.”
Kuala Lumpur: Fusionex, a data technology provider has rolled out a data analytics solution for an institute of higher learning in Asia to elevate its market intelligence by accurately determining market demand.
The data management solution captures information from online interactions on the client’s web portal to accurately discern student interest, course relevance and potential roadblocks against enrolment.
Fusionex revamped the client’s web portal and transforming it into an intelligent data gathering platform capable of tracking user data, a statement said.
The web portal could measure how each user uniquely interacts with it and produces insights from the data to form a true 360-degree view of each customer.
It can also determine which pages failed to capture user interest, causing them to drop off from the web portal.
The client could also monitor patterns of visit to their web portal via social media platforms such as Facebook as well as from online ads, giving the client a better understanding of their sales conversion rates and return on advertising investment.
Fusionex Founder and Group Chief Executive Officer, Ivan Teh said: “We are delighted to deploy this robust data management solution as we look forward to it generating powerful insights for the client.
SEOUL, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fusionex, a multi award-winning, data technology provider specializing in Big Data Analytics (BDA), the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence, and Deep Learning, has successfully deployed a data-driven travel and hospitality platform to power up the operations of a new mega resort in Korea, in a multi-million dollar contract.
“We are excited to see the rollout of this world-class platform for this amazing and beautiful resort. We look forward to seeing our client leverage this data-driven digital platform in their quest to provide high quality customer experiences.”
Fusionex has introduced its BDA solution, Fusionex GIANT, which will consolidate billions of records, from traveler registration to hotel guest interactions and retail customer management. By harnessing this massive amount of data, the client would use GIANT to cleanse and manage disparate data to gain useful insights and information. The information would then be utilized to facilitate bookings, make product recommendations and provide better customer experience with a high degree of flexibility and personalization.
The Fusionex Big Data platform is also a natural bolt-on for the Fusionex Central Reservation System (CRS), which reaches customers on their terms through convenient online, kiosk, and mobile platforms. CRS will also support requests by travel agents, providing a wider avenue for travelers to find their way to the resort. The system will also provide seamless communication between floor staff and security.
Besides generating a greater number of visitors for the client, Fusionex will also be working on ways to increase the customers’ lifetime value. Via the Loyalty Management System (LMS), the client will be able to give out loyalty points and redeemable rewards. This turns the holiday paradigm into one of point accumulation or “gamification” that motivates customers through interaction, engagement and loyalty, which will encourage recurring visits.
The client will then be able to unearth hidden insights in its data with a near-real-time overview of the performances of its different hospitality arms, customer behavior and tendencies. They could even conduct a drill-up analysis that checks stats from specific rides, from zones to the entire theme park. Decision-makers will then be able to craft strategies based on Fusionex’s predictive analytics capabilities.
Ivan Teh, Fusionex Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are excited to see the rollout of this world-class platform for this amazing and beautiful resort. We look forward to seeing our client leverage this data-driven digital platform in their quest to provide high quality customer experiences.”

If your business has any online components (such as a website), then SEO is crucial to the ongoing success of your business. You may have the most expensive website in your industry, but without web traffic (visitors) to that website, it is essentially useless. It is not just traffic that you need, but targeted traffic. A good quality SEO service can provide relevant, consistent web traffic to your website(s). This guide will allow you, as a non-expert, to distinguish between good and bad SEO providers. There are many of both kinds, this guide should help you to find the good ones.
SEO services brisbane needs to be implemented in a way that is effective in achieving your SEO goals and providing that all important meaningful presence on the World Wide Web.
Quality SEO is a crucial investment when it comes to developing successful expansion and growth strategies.
Ineffective SEO implementation, renders your SEO efforts wholly ineffective and a waste of your money.
6 things you need to know and understand before hiring an SEO provider:
1) Hiring an SEO provider should be seen as an investment in your business. You should not view it as a business expense, but rather a business strategy and an effective way of enhancing your business presence within your business sector. Try not to begin your search with the intention of “buying some SEO”. Hiring an SEO provider should be viewed rather as hiring an employee that understands and cares about your business and its online objectives.
2) The first page of Google (or any search engine) is everything. Few people ever go to the second page of the search results anymore. Google is so good at being a search engine that people blindly trust Google’s ability to deliver the most relevant results on the first page. Think about how often you click through to the second page. This means that if your business is not on the first page, it’s almost as good as nowhere. The top positions on page one get the most clicks, which decrease as you progress downwards on the page.
3) The ‘big’ keywords are not everything. It is better to be on the first page for a few smaller keywords, than try to rank for bigger keywords and not be on the first page at all. For example, an accountancy business in Preston may not rank for the highly competitive keyword ‘accountant’ (unless they have a lot of SEO budget and time to wait for rankings); but the same business could conceivably rank highly for the keyword ‘chartered accountant Preston’. A good SEO provider should research the keywords that your business could realistically rank on page one for and also keywords that have enough search volume to be worthwhile for your business to try ranking for.
4) SEO is all about beating your competition. There is no guarantee from the search engines to say you will be on the first page of Google if you do certain things. Put simply, SEO works like this:
The search engines have their conventions; websites that conform by giving the search engines what they want, will find themselves achieving better search engine rankings. The only thing standing between you and the top spots in the search rankings is your competition. Not your actual business competitors, but your online competitors. The websites that currently have the top spots in the search engines for your desired keywords are your online competition, and you need to beat them out of those top spots. Some keywords will be easy to rank for, others will be more difficult. It is only your online competition that dictates which will be the case for each individual keyword. A good SEO provider will research the competition for each of your keywords. Then, after the most effective keywords for your business sector have been identified they should be implemented in accordance with point number three above.
5) On-page and Off-page SEO.
Search engine optimisation is a complex and ever-evolving science, but in order to intelligently interview a prospective SEO provider you need to understand that there are two main types of SEO.
On-page SEO relates to the factors on your website that affect your SEO (keywords, usability, page headings, outbound links, internal links, etc.).
Off-page SEO are the factors that relate directly to matters outside of your website that affect the SEO of the website, such as back links, citations, social sharing, etc.
SEO providers can work on your off-page SEO fairly easily, but if you are not willing to change on-page SEO, according to their recommendations, you cannot blame them for lack of results. A good SEO provider will review your website and report back about your on-page SEO, and how it can be improved. You should have your web designer make the adjustments.(Remember he is the expert in this field)
6) An increase in search engine ranking is not necessarily an increase in leads and sales. All your SEO provider can do is get your website, videos, Google Places, articles, blog posts, etc. further up the search engine results. They cannot guarantee an increase in sales or leads, because that factor is determined by your own sales funnel. It is not the SEO provider’s job to make sure that the extra web traffic you receive will convert to more leads or sales. Your website needs to convert those visitors with good marketing, which is an issue for your marketing consultant to deal with.
The key differences between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ SEO providers:
Good SEO Providers
Good SEO providers know and understand the points mentioned above. You can judge this by their answers to the questions provided later in my next article.
Good SEO providers want to build a solid foundation and a proper SEO plan for your business, with extensive initial keyword and market (competitor) research. They will often insist upon it, even if the prospective client does not see the need. Sometimes a good SEO provider will refuse to work with a client that does not want the important groundwork to be done, because they know that without it they will not be likely to provide the client with the results that they want. A good SEO provider will want to provide their client with results as their first priority. Often a client will say “but I’ve already done the keyword research myself”. Many potential clients sit down for 5 or 10 minutes to write out all the keywords that they think are relevant to their business, and then think that they have now done all the keyword research that is needed. Real keyword research is a lengthy, investigative process.
Good SEO providers use responsible SEO methods, such as paying more attention to on-page SEO, securing quality back links, improving citations, aiding social sharing, ensuring a good user experience, etc.
Bad SEO Providers
Bad SEO providers will want to take their clients’ money as their first priority. They will not conduct proper keyword and market research, but will say, for example, “what are your three keywords and your URL that you want to rank for”. If this happens (as it often does) you can be sure they are simply plugging your website into software to get irrelevant back links all over the internet, using spam blog comments, link farms and other means. In many cases this approach is ineffective because the URL, or domain, may not match the client’s desired keywords. This can also damage the reputation and, ironically, the long-term SEO and credibility of the website.
Bad SEO providers use bad quality SEO methods (Sometimes referred to as Black-hat methods), Utilising these methods can have an extremely detrimental effect on how your website is perceived by search engines. This in turn may result in your website being (Sand boxed). Needless to say this is extremely undesirable, as damage such as this is extremely difficult to reverse.
Ensure you get the specialist SEO who knows how best to highlight the attributes of your company and can draw attention to your products and your services in a way that really makes your business stand-out on the worldwide web.
SEO and webdesign It is extremely important to have a website that reflects your company ethics and personifies the company ethos as closely as possible, after all; this is about you, your company and the products and services that you wish to put on display. Good quality SEO ensuring a good user experience. https://www.catapultz.com.au/

In other words, if the chiropractor or the physical therapist (physiotherapist) lacks medical proficiency, experience, skills or therapy gadgets specific for the spinal column, the medical outcomes will not be preferable! Slipped Disc medically known as herniated disc, protruded disc, prolapsed disc, extruded disc or fragmented disc is a health condition that has actually haunted sufferers for centuries. Typically, the majority of victims get prescription medication, injections, and even surgical treatment. Some look for treatment from chiropractic specialists or Physiotherapists (Physio Therapists). Nevertheless, the vast majority of clients discover little to no long-term benefits from the traditional medical techniques, chiropractic or physiotherapy (physical treatment). As a result, most undergo one or more surgical interventions!
The existing surgical and non-operative approaches of slipped disc treatment are flawed. These failures are all too evident in increasing varieties of spine surgical treatments along with boosts in botched up surgical interventions. So, both surgical and non-surgical interventions have cannot supply patients the long-lasting relief the looked for. The need for corrective care is greater than ever! Today, neck discomfort and back pain is the leading cause of special needs in persons under the age of 40. IT is time to alter to a more holistic approach of care that does, not involve injections or surgical treatment. Our society needs much better treatment options as our present and recognized approaches of spine care is failing the huge majority of those we serve.
Failures are typically due to the abilities, understanding, and knowledge of caregivers. Simply puts, if the chiropractor or the physiotherapist (physio therapist) does not have scientific proficiency, experience, skills or treatment devices particular for the spinal column, the clinical results will not be desirable! Non-surgical successes in treatments of a slipped disc patient are achievable when the clinician or practitioner has an extensive understanding of slipped disc, specialized skills, and even innovation.
In my opinion, treat plantar fasciitis and physical therapy have much to offer a slipped disc patient. There countless advantages one can get when going to a chiropractic physician or a physiotherapist (physiotherapist). Would it not then be much better for these two terrific occupations to combine their abilities, understanding, and capabilities in treatments on clients with a slipped disc? Yes, it would! So, why is this refrained from doing? Well, the short answer is that most chiropractic specialists and physiotherapists don’t get along! However, in reality, there are health care forces (particularly the pharmaceuticals and few cosmetic surgeons) that have either intentionally or unintentionally produced a rift between a chiropractic doctor and a physio therapist.
The good news we can share with today is that many of the chiropractic physicians and physio therapists are now joining their scientific efforts in an effort of using better and more comprehensive non-surgical spine treatments. While there are plenty of the old made chiropractic centers and physiotherapy centers, the new age is fast taking over! While the huge pharmaceuticals, cosmetic surgeons and surgical organisation may not be extremely delighted about the collective efforts of chiropractic physicians and physio therapists, the clients are delighted! https://mybowentherapy.com/plantar-fasciitis-treatment-massage/
Local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are urged to get onboard China’s biggest e-commerce platform, Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd, and take advantage of the newly launched Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) to expand their business horizon abroad.
Minister of Transport Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said via Alibaba, local SMEs could also be part of the Singles’ Day sale and promotion that is held every Nov 11.
For example, the China-based company recorded US$25 billion (RM102.88 billion) in sales during the last Singles’ Day sale, joined by as many as 60,000 international brands and merchants.
“As such, our SMEs must quickly get onboard the Alibaba platform so that we also can participate in the Singles’ Day sale next year. I am confident that it will be another sales record,” he said after launching the Ninth Pikom Leadership Summit in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

On the Singles’ Day sale, Shopee has generated an increase in search interest by 71.4%, following by 11street (66.7%), Hermo (50%) and Zalora (25%).
“Based on the search interest on Nov 11, the five most popular e-commerce (platforms) in Malaysia are Lazada, Shopee, 11street, Zalora and Hermo,” Liow said.
The DFTZ that was launched early this month by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak together with Alibaba founder Jack Ma, is expected to provide 1,972 Malaysian SMEs the opportunity to sell their products online.
Liow added that the DFTZ will position Malaysia as the regional e-fulfilment hub for Asean consumers.
He said the existence of phase 1 of the DFTZ facility should be fully capitalised by local players to deliver their products to the Chinese market.
“Cainiao Network (Technology Co Ltd) and Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd will set up a 24ha e-fulfilment hub in phase 2 of DTFZ, slated to be operational by 2020,” he said.

What can you truly do to prevent and deal with cyber attacks? The answer is right here in these primary IoT principles.
The Internet of Things, or IoT, is transforming traditional industries and providing unprecedented amounts of data to provide world-altering information to all users and adopters. However, the IoT is also vulnerable to security breaches and the ensuing storm. This is especially true in business and enterprise, where a data breach could mean exposing not just your organization’s data but also sensitive data related to your customers and clientele.
Inherently, connected and publicly accessible devices come with a series of vulnerability risks. But the real issues are an inadequate series of regulations for data security and privacy in the field and a lack of preparedness on the part of users. What happens, for example, when a device is compromised and the data contained within is absconded? Who is to blame? What should be done to protect those affected, and how can we make sure it doesn’t happen again?
Furthermore, who owns the data being collected and processed? When consumers are involved, is it the person for whom the data is about? Is it the company collecting the data? Is it the manufacturer of the IoT device or equipment in use?
You can see that the matter of security and privacy is about more than just locking down the technology and preventing unauthorized access. It’s about how the devices are used, as well as what’s being done with the data they create. And more importantly, how we — as a society — secure that data.
Prepare for an event
The more obvious security concern relates to a data breach or cyber attack. At this point, it’s better to look at them as inevitable. Not only should you never be lax with your security and preventative measures, but also understand that, at some point, you will most likely experience an attack. Which means, dealing with the aftermath of a breach and developing a proper risk assessment plan — that covers before, during and after an attack — are equally necessary.
Too many of us focus on just the preventative side of the equation, which does nothing during and after an event.
Instead, a more robust security plan is in order. This means establishing monitoring tools to see who’s on your network and what they’re doing at all times. You must also have a way to prevent or block both unauthorized and legitimate users. Sometimes a trusted user’s account or device is being leveraged by hackers.
Additionally, measures must be deployed to secure the sensitive data involved, eliminate access to it during a breach, and understand what content — and why — is being targeted.
Securing your network: Mind IoT data principles
While dealing with IoT data and information, there are several questions you must ask before deploying any equipment on your network.
Should data remain private and be securely stored?
Does this data need to be accurate and trustworthy — free from tampering or outside influence?
Is the timely arrival of the data vital to operations?
Should the device(s) or hardware be restricted to select personnel?
Should the firmware or device software be kept up-to-date?
Is device ownership dynamic and will there need to be complex permissions?
Is it necessary to audit the data and systems in use regularly?
Answering these questions will determine exactly what kind of security measures and protocols you put in place. If devices are restricted to select users, you will need to deploy an authentication system that can both identify and provide access based on a series of explicit permissions.
It’s also worth mentioning that many of these principles are related to one another. Restricting user access, for instance, would call for dynamic ownership, complex permissions, and data encryption to prevent unauthorized data viewing or manipulation.
All too often, we take it for granted that the data is flowing freely and securely between systems or devices and that it’s being housed in a protected way. The sad truth is that proper security is an exception more than it is a rule, as evidenced by so many recent and historic data breaches.
Minimizing damage during an event
As with any conventional business it outsourcing infrastructure business, an IoT network must undergo routine maintenance and monitoring to ensure that issues are handled swiftly. Any and all network devices must be kept up-to-date with the latest security patches. Only authorized users must be allowed to access highly-sensitive data, and they must be knowledgeable and aware of basic security protocols. Finally, the proper security monitoring tools must be deployed to keep an eye on what’s happening.
Future proofing the technology means adopting innovative security strategies where they are applicable. AI and machine learning tools can help devices identify and understand when something isn’t right, and then ultimately empowering them to take action.

Singapore, 28 June 2018 – Fusionex, a multi-award-winning data technology provider specializing in Big Data Analytics (BDA), the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Deep Learning has rolled out a data analytics solution for an institute of higher learning of high repute in Asia to elevate its market intelligence by accurately determining market demand.
An institution of higher learning that has educated students for over 30 years, the client currently has a student enrollment of more than 11,000 strong and offers courses in Accounting, Communications, Computer Science, Early Childhood Education, Economics, Engineering, Hospitality and Tourism, Law, and Psychology.
The data management solution involves capturing information from online interactions on the client’s web portal and other domains for analysis to accurately discern student interest, course relevance, potential roadblocks against enrolment, and other such acumen.
Fusionex revamped the client’s web portal, transforming it into an intelligent data gathering platform capable of tracking user data. Specifically the web portal could measure how each user uniquely interacts with it and produces insights from this data to form a true 360-degree view of each customer. It can also determine which pages failed to capture user interest, causing them to drop off from the web portal. Such insights paint a more comprehensive and precise picture regarding the fluctuating levels of interest throughout a customer’s journey as they browse through the client’s web portal.
By leveraging on such comprehensive data collection and cognitive computing capabilities, the client could also monitor patterns of visit to their web portal via social media platforms such as Facebook as well as from online ads, giving the client a better understanding of their sales conversion rates and return on advertising investment.
Furthermore, the data management solution allows for the monitoring of popular online job portals and peer web portals, granting a holistic overview of the market; enlightening the client concerning popular jobs, courses peer web portals are offering, and the shifting tides of supply and demand in the industry. Such insights can play a vital role in cluing the client as to what strategies and plans to adopt to attract prospective students.
Fusionex will be advancing the client’s online visibility and presence via Search Engine Optimization, Machine Learning, AI, and Search Engine Marketing techniques while simultaneously running the client’s solution on Fusionex Cloud, leveraging the storage flexibility and cost savings it provides.
Ivan Teh, Fusionex Founder & Group CEO, commented: “We are delighted to deploy this robust data management solution as we look forward to it generating powerful insights for the client. This will enable the client to create relevant targeted offerings for prospective students and for students to find the most suitable courses that match with their individual talents and interests.” https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/fusionex
