Last Update: 04/07/2019
IPOH, July 4 (Bernama) -- Since the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (MAMPU) introduced MyGovUC in 2012, the integrated communication and collaboration service which facilitates contact between civil servants while improving workflow, has recorded 320,344 users up till May 31, 2019.
Reading the speech of MAMPU director-general, Datuk Dr Mazlan Yusoff, at the launch of the Northern Zone MyGovUC Roadshow today, MAMPU chief ICT consultant, Datuk Mohd Nor Hassan, said promotion is ongoing to bring everyone in the public service on board, with just four ministries -- Home Affairs; Tourism, Arts and Culture; Transport; and Defence -- left to market to.
He said presently, 21 ministries and 185 government agencies are using the service which combines e-mail, file sharing, instant messaging, video and audio conferencing.
He said “it has been seven years and users are increasing every year” and that the nationwide roadshow -- which has gone to Putrajaya, Johor, Negeri Sembilan, Sabah and Sarawak -- is one of the promotion platforms to boost awareness of MyGovUC, with face-to-face interaction working better.
He said MyGovUC has brought transformation and allowed the Government and its users to reap benefits like a single channel of official communication, and cost savings through reduced equipment and software purchase.
“Money can be saved on claims like travel, phone bills and printing due to the use of Skype for Business for communication,” said Mazlan.
MyGovUC is also equipped with anti-spam and advanced threat protection, and is linked to the Public Sector Data Centre and MyGov*net network for secure data transfer.
