Hong Kong creativity shines through as 13 teams shortlisted for JOS Innovation Awards 2018-19

Closed door learning and sharing session with JOS, Manulife, Hong Kong Maxim’s Group and Sino Group

Hong Kong – 8 January, 2019 - JOS, a technology solutions provider for Asia’s changing environment, and its partners, Manulife, Hong Kong Maxim's Group[1] and Sino Group have announced the shortlisted teams in the annual JOS Innovation Awards. At a kick-off ceremony held today, the thirteen teams, numbering over forty students, participated in a learning and sharing session about customer experience challenges found in the technology, insurance, food & beverage services and property sectors.

All those shortlisted can now look forward to the battle round on 12 April 2019 where four teams will walk away with HK$30,000 each and win a place on the JOS Innovation Awards 2018-19 mentorship programme. Industry pundits from JOS, Manulife, Hong Kong Maxim’s Group and Sino Group will provide valuable insights into learning and what it takes to succeed in business together with potentially offering internships.

“This year, the JOS Innovation Awards yet again attracted high calibre entries from students who approached the customer experience theme with great enthusiasm and creativity. There were some amazing ideas put forward and it was very hard to determine the shortlisted entries,” said Eric Or, Managing Director, Greater China, JOS. “Today’s sharing session allowed executives and students a common platform to voice their thoughts on current and future customer experience trends and how these may be addressed.”

The Awards themselves are designed to demonstrate creative thinking and problem solving skills to everyday business challenges. The JOS Innovation Awards 2018-19 attracted over fifty teams of between two and five university students in Hong Kong all examining the customer experience challenge and coming up with solutions for JOS, Manulife, Hong Kong Maxim’s Group and Sino Group.

[1]"Especially impressive was how the entrants highlighted specific issues associated with the insurance sector and showed an understanding of the critical role our agents play in the customer experience journey,” said Francesco Lagutaine, Chief Marketing and Experience Design Officer, Manulife Asia. “Manulife is focused on helping people make decisions easier and their lives better and leveraging technology to deliver on this. We’re excited to see the ideas the students present after gaining more understanding of our industry and customers."

During the kick-off ceremony, representatives from JOS, Manulife, Maxim’s Caterers Limited, and Sino Group took part in a panel discussion on customer experience, the challenges faced, trends and spoke about the JOS Innovation Award submissions. The session also provided the teams with genuine insights and learnings from Hong Kong business leaders in a closed-door setting.

While technology plays a key role in digitisation, the right talent, mindset and leadership are equally important. JOS sees five technology pillars and three corporate principles as the core foundations for making innovation real. 

"The customer journey is evolving in an increasingly tech-savvy world where everything is available at our fingertips. This is the same for the food and beverage industry with customers opting for diversity, speed and convenience. This requires innovative ways to understand the customers’ decision-making process. We are excited to gain inspiration from all the entries as this brings us even closer to customers and further enhances the overall customer experience," said Louis Mah, Director of Information Technology, Hong Kong Maxim's Group.

“The JOS Innovation Awards entries provide us with valuable insights to keep the customer experience fresh and relevant in the new era, particular at our properties. These enable us to identify areas for improvement and to harness technology to enhance the Sino Experience,” said Andrew Young, Associate Director (Innovation), Sino Group.

“There are over twenty thousand students graduating from Hong Kong universities every year who look to gravitate towards companies they perceive to have the strongest brands. This perception is shaped, in part, by the experience they have received as customers. Thus, the customer experience theme has allowed every participant to address issues they have experienced and to find a solution,” said Eric from JOS.

Ke Arah Industri 4.0 : Mencetus Inovasi Sebenar Dan Hasil Yang Nyata Buat Perniagaan Malaysa

Kuala Lumpur, 28 Januari 2019 -  Tahun 2019 ialah masanya untuk mengambil langkah dan bukan sekadar bercakap kosong! Menurut Ramalan Forrester 2019, organisasi akan beralih dari cita-cita strategik kepada anjakan yang lebih pragmatik. Transformasi digital perlu 'kembali kepada akarnya: sebuah langkah inovasi yang kecil dan boleh dikawal namun menghasilkan manfaat nyata yang boleh diukur.[1]

Realiti hari ini, banyak perniagaan Asia berkerja dengan kekangan bajet yang lebih ketat, di samping mempunyai perancangan inovasi yang tidak terlalu bercita-cita tinggi. Masalah sering terjadi apabila sumber yang ada diarahkan ke tempat yang tidak sepatutnya manakala teknologi pula tidak digunakan dengan sebaiknya. Tambahan lagi, inovasi bukanlah tugas yang mudah dan kegagalan serta kerumitan memang tidak boleh dielakkan. Malah pihak pengurusan juga akan mudah memandang enteng inovasi jika tidak ada pulangan pelaburan yang jelas. Oleh itu, mereka yang berada di atas perlu berfikir tentang persoalan utama dalam masalah ini: Apa perlunya inovasi?

Kini, dengan adanya lebih banyak teknologi baharu, perniagaan ‘segar’ yang mendatangkan persaingan kepada mereka yang sudah lama bertapak, keselamatan siber yang kian terancam, keperluan pengguna yang makin berubah, inovasi sebenar yang menghasilkan operasi serba efisien dan Pulangan Pelaburan (ROI) yang boleh diukur adalah teramat penting. Tidak dinafikan lagi, inisiatif inovasi bukan sahaja perlu untuk menambahbaik pengalaman pengguna di luar sana, bahkan turut perlu dalam merealisasikan agenda inovasi di dalam sesebuah organisasi serta memacu operasi yang serba efisien, serta perniagaan yang mampan dan pantas membangun.

Di Malaysia, kerajaan telah memperuntukkan RM210 juta untuk membangunkan Industri 4.0 yang menekankan keperluan untuk mengautomasikan proses pembuatan dan memacu inovasi perniagaan. Menjelang tahun 2025, Perdana Menteri kita turut menjangka negara untuk berada di kedudukan antara 30 negara teratas dalam Indeks Inovasi Global. Pada masa ini, Malaysia menduduki tempat ke-35 dalam indeks.[2]

Jadi, apakah cabaran dan asas kepada 'inovasi sebenar'? JOS, salah satu penyepadu sistem dan penyelesaian IT terkemuka di Asia yang bertapak teguh di rantau ini selama lebih 60 tahun, telahpun memuatkan semua ini ke dalam '5 + 3 model inovasi sebenar' yang serba unggul. Model tersebut telah diumumkan di forum serantau JOS TALK didedikasikan untuk komuniti IT dan perniagaan di Asia. Forum itu berkisar tentang Trends (Trend), Advice (Nasihat), Leadership (Kepimpinan) dan Knowledge (Pengetahuan). Tahun ini, JOS TALK 2019 adalah bertemakan MAKE INNOVATION REAL.

Di Malaysia, sesi tersebut diketuai oleh En. Mark Lunt, Pengarah Urusan JOS Group dan En. Steven Soo, Pengarah Urusan JOS Malaysia yang membincangkan prospek dan cabaran tahun 2019 untuk perniagaan di Asia, termasuk Malaysia.

"Untuk menjadikan sebuah inovasi sebenar, teknologi memainkan peranan penting. Tetapi teknologi hanya boleh menjayakan sesuatu inovasi apabila digabungkan dengan kepimpinan dan strategi yang jelas. Demi mencetuskan inovasi sebenar, adalah perlu untuk bermula dengan langkah kecil, membuahkan hasil dengan pantas dan kemudian beralih kepada matlamat yang lebih tinggi setelah membina kredibiliti dalam menjana hasil," kata En Mark Lunt, Pengarah Urusan JOS Group.

JOS, penyepadu sistem, penyedia penyelesaian dan perundingan teknologi dengan pengetahuan tempatan dan industri yang mendalam dan keupayaan luar biasa untuk pelaksanaan, telah bekerja bersama lebih 10,000 pengguna di serata industri seperti Perkhidmatan Kewangan, Hospitaliti, Pembuatan, Sektor Awam, Peruncitan & Pusat Beli-Belah untuk membantu mereka mengatasi cabaran dan cemerlang dalam perjalanan inovasi mereka.

Mengulas mengenai senario di Malaysia, En Steven Soo, Pengarah Urusan JOS Malaysia, berkata, "Sebenarnya, cabaran untuk perniagaan tempatan adalah kekurangan individu berbakat. Ini amat penting apabila mengambil kira agenda negara untuk Industri 4.0. Sudah tentu, ia memerlukan masa untuk mempunyai individu berbakat yang cukup ramai, jadi 2019 merupakan masa yang terbaik untuk bermula. Selama 20 tahun ini, JOS masih kekal komited dalam pasaran Malaysia dan kami sudah pasti dapat membantu syarikat dalam strategi digital mereka. Seperti negara lain di rantau ini, ekonomi Malaysia juga akan dipengaruhi oleh cabaran dalam perkembangan perdagangan.”

Jelas Lunt lagi, "Model inovasi sebenar JOS menggabungkan 5 tunggak teknikal dengan 3 dimensi korporat yang mencetuskan hasil apabila diperkuatkan dengan kepimpinan yang mantap apabila membuat keputusan, lebih-lebih lagi dalam persekitaran perniagaan yang terbuka, selamat dan tangkas.

"Lima tunggak teknikal itu ialah AI (kecerdasan buatan), IoT (Internet of Things), Big Data, Cloud dan Keselamatan Siber. Ini ialah lima teknologi yang paling penting, kesemuanya saling berhubung dan berkait rapat dalam usaha untuk mencetus inovasi nyata.

"Data terkumpul melalui sensor IoT hanya boleh membawa maklumat perniagaan yang bermakna, dengan syarat adanya sebuah seni bina Big Data yang diuruskan dengan baik. Kejayaan dalam projek AI dan IoT juga bergantung kepada fleksibiliti dalam kuasa pengkomputeran dari Cloud beserta analisis yang disokong oleh strategi Big Data syarikat. Malah, AI bukan lagi sesuatu yang akan digunakan pada masa hadapan. Seperti yang dilaporkan oleh The Economist Corporate Network, lebih daripada 12% golongan pengurusan dalam perniagaan Asia mendakwa bahawa perniagaan mereka telah mula mengalami impak AI sejak tahun lepas lagi.[3] Namun tentunya, tidak ada inisiatif inovasi yang dapat membuahkan hasil tanpa adanya strategi keselamatan holistik untuk melindungi data dan sistem korporat.

"Orang, Budaya, dan Organisasi adalah sama pentingnya untuk mencetus inovasi sebenar manakala kepimpinan yang baik adalah daya utama untuk memacu inovasi dalam dimensi korporat ini. Seorang pemimpin yang serba fokus akan mendedikasikan sumber seperti masa dan modal untuk melatih bakat sedia ada dan menggunakan perunding luar untuk memanfaatkan teknologi untuk nilai perniagaan yang bermakna. Di mana-mana syarikat sekalipun, masa seringkali diperlukan untuk memupuk pemikiran untuk inovasi. Tetapi apabila adanya pemimpin berwawasan yang menginspirasi dan memupuk budaya inovasi, segalanya akan menjadi sedikit lancar. Struktur di dalam organisasi selamanya menjadi asas untuk mengekalkan inovasi dengan adanya proses membincangkan idea dan mengukur hasil yang bermakna."

Melaksanakan perancangan untuk mencetus inovasi nyata, Lunt mendedahkan bahawa JOS juga telah berjaya melalui transformasinya sendiri dua tahun yang lalu. JOS ialah sebuah syarikat yang sangat berbeza hari ini, yang telah bertukar kepada rakan teknologi yang dipercayai untuk memimpin perniagaan di Asia. JOS telah memperkenalkan model perniagaan baharu yang dipesatkan lagi oleh bakat baharu. Hasilnya, ia menjadi sebuah organisasi yang cukup bertenaga dalam melengkapkan budaya mesra pengguna yang telah sebati dengan JOS.

Memanfaatkan kepakarannya dalam konteks Asia lebih 60 tahun dan beroperasi elama 20 tahun di pasaran Malaysia, Lunt dan Soo turut berkongsi pandangan tentang perjalanan inovasi mereka dengan pengguna di seluruh Asia untuk membantu mereka merealisasikan potensi teknologi demi membuahkan hasil yang boleh diukur.

Selain itu, Lunt dan Soo menggesa perniagaan Asia untuk memberi tumpuan kepada empat perkara pada tahun 2019 untuk mendapat manfaat ketara daripada inovasi sebenar - Inovasi Terfokus, Sasaran Realistik, Komited Mencapai Matlamat & Orang dan Budaya yang Betul. Syarikat perlu fokus dalam rancangan inovasi mereka dan mengenal pasti bahagian yang paling memerlukan dan akan mendapat manfaat dari inovasi. Ini akan merangka perjalanan inovasi mereka, dan manfaat bermakna akan dapat dikecapi sekiranya sasaran realistik adalah sejajar dengan perubahan pasaran. Pemimpin perniagaan juga mesti komited untuk meneruskan inovasi. Kejayaan dalam inovasi memerlukan kerjasama seluruh organisasi yang mempunyai bakat dan pemikiran yang betul.

Memandang terus ke hadapan, Lunt menyebut peluang yang telah muncul dalam automasi proses robotik (RPA) yang berfungsi sebagai asas untuk pembelajaran mesin dan AI. Terdapat juga keperluan untuk memupuk integrasi yang besar dalam kerjasama awam-swasta untuk mengecapi nilai perniagaan dalam IoT terutamanya dalam bidang pembangunan bandar pintar. Membangunkan persekitaran cekap-cloud juga penting bagi aliran kerja yang lebih lancar dan ini tertumpu kepada keupayaan untuk mengurus dan melindungi persekitaran cloud di cloud awam. "Pastinya, masa hadapan inovasi adalah sangat mengujakan dan JOS berhasrat untuk berkerjasama dengan pengguna sedia ada dan akan datang untuk meniti perjalanan inovasi ini bersama-sama, " akhiri Lunt.

迈向工业4.0 : 马来西亚企业应真正落实创新并创造明显商业绩效

吉隆坡,2019年1月28日 -  2019 将会是实践承诺务实经营的一年!Forrester 发布的2019年市场趋势预测披露,企业将从战略布局转向务实落地。数位化转型必需“回归到根本:小规模、可掌控及带来明显绩效的创新方案。”[1]




“真正创新”的挑战与基础究竟是什么?作为亚洲领先的 IT 服务及技术解决方案供应商之一、深耕亚洲市场超过60年的JOS公司,整合推出简洁完善的“5+3真正创新模式”。此模式在 JOS TALK 区域性研讨会正式发布。JOS TALK 区域性研讨会是一项专为亚洲资讯科技及商务社群而设,探讨趋势 (Trends)、建议 (Advice)、领导 (Leadership) 及知识 (Knowledge) 的研讨会。2019年 JOS TALK 的主题为“真正落实创新 (Make Innovation Real)”。

马来西亚的环节由 JOS 集团董事总经理 Mark Lunt 和 JOS 马来西亚区董事总经理邱湶骅主导,他们讲述了2019年亚洲商业领域的展望与挑战。

JOS 集团董事总经理 Mark Lunt 表示:“想要真正落实创新,科技扮演了举足轻重的关键角色。但是,唯有结合领导才能和明确策略,科技才能成功推动创新成果。真正落实创新必需从小规模开始并快速取胜,接着设定更远大抱负目标,通过展现绩效来建立信誉。”


JOS 马来西亚区董事总经理邱湶骅分析马来西亚现况时说:“本地企业的挑战是缺乏人才,这对于达成国家工业4.0目标尤其重要。当然,培养这方面的人才需要时间,2019年是启动的大好时机。JOS 致力于为马来西亚市场提供服务已有超过20年历史,我们绝对可以帮助本地企业落实数位化战略。如同亚洲区域的其他国家,马来西亚的经济也将会受到贸易发展挑战的影响。”

Lunt 进一步说明:“JOS 真正创新模式结合了5大技术性支柱及3大企业方向,通过在开放式、安全可靠及灵活商业环境中促进决策性的强大领导能力,确保创造卓越绩效与成果。” “5大技术性支柱包括人工智能(artificial intelligence,简称 AI)、物联网(internet of things,简称 IoT)、大数据(Big Data)、云端(Cloud)和网络安全(Cyber Security)。这些都是最重要的五大科技,每一项都在真正落实创新方面有着相互影响及环环相扣的密切关系。”

“通过物联网收集的数据,需要结合完善管理的大数据设置,才能带来具有意义的商业价值。人工智能与物联网计划的成功与否也需要依靠云端计算功能的灵活弹性,以及由企业大数据战略作为后盾支撑的分析。事实上,人工智能已经不再是未来趋势。经济学人企业网络组织报告指出,超过12%亚洲企业领袖表示他们的业务从去年已经开始面对人工智能的影响。[3] 由此可见,如果缺乏保障企业数据和系统的全面性安全策略,任何创新方案都无法创造绩效与成果。”


将想法付诸行动才能落实真正创新,Lunt 表示 JOS 早在两年前就已经成功推动转型。今天,JOS 已经完全转型成为截然不同的公司,备受亚洲领先企业信赖的科技合作伙伴。JOS 推行由卓越人才促进的新事业模式,为公司注入新活力以满足 JOS 长久以来秉持的“客户至上”文化。

充分应用在亚洲市场深耕超过60年的经验,以及在马来西亚市场扎根20年的领导能力,Lunt 和邱湶骅也与亚洲各地的客户分享了他们的创新旅程,以帮助亚洲企业了解通过科技带动明显绩效的庞大潜能。

Lunt 和邱湶骅建议亚洲企业在2019年应专注于四大领域,通过真正落实创新取得明显绩效,其中包括明确创新方案、设定合理期待、持续落实承诺、正确人才和文化。企业需要更明确专注于他们的创新计划,同时辨识出最需要创新及可创造效益的领域。这将会成为企业推动创新旅程的起点,从而让企业能从有意义的成果中受惠。另外,企业也必需设定与市场变化相符的合理目标。企业领 导者必需持续落实创新承诺。创新过程的成功需要整个企业的协力合作,同时也要具备正确人才与思维模式。

展望未来,Lunt 提到了机器人流程自动化(robotic process automation,简称 RPA)的商机,这将成为器械学习与人工智能的根基。另外,也需要更大力推动公共领域与私人企业合作的整合方案,以更大程度创造物联网的商业价值,尤其是在发展智能城市方面。建立一个云原生(cloud-native)环境也非常重要,这样才能让工作流程更顺利,同时提升在公共云管理及保障私有云环境的安全性。“创新的未来绝对非常令人充满期待,JOS 致力于跟现有及潜在客户携手合作,与他们携手同行迈向创新旅程!”Lunt 这样总结。

Towards Industry 4.0 : Malaysian Businesses to Make Innovation Real and Deliver Tangible Business Results

Kuala Lumpur, 17 January 2019 - 2019 will be the year to walk the talk! According to Forrester’s 2019 Predictions, organisations will shift from strategic ambitions to pragmatism. Digital transformation needs ‘to get back to its roots: small, manageable chunks of innovation that deliver tangible benefits’.[1]

The present reality is that many Asian businesses often work with controlled and tighter budgets and have less ambitious innovation plans. Problems often result from misallocation of resources and poorly directed technology. Innovation is never an easy task and failures and setbacks are inevitable. Management can easily tire of innovation if there is no clear ROI in sight. Business leaders must then address one key question in this equation : Why innovate?

With the rise in technology disruptions, vibrant set-ups that challenge established enterprises, growing cyber security threats, heightened customer expectations, real innovation that results in operational efficiency and tangible Return on Investment (ROI) is pivotal. Undoubtedly, innovation initiatives must extend beyond external customer experience and drive the innovation agenda internally as well to drive operational efficiency, sustainability and accelerated growth.

In Malaysia, the government has allocated RM210 million to develop Industry 4.0 which calls for the need to automate manufacturing process and drive business innovation. Our Prime Minister envisions the country to be ranked among the top 30 nations in the Global Innovation Index by 2025. Currently, Malaysia is ranked 35th in the index.[2]

So, what are the challenges and foundation to ‘real innovation’? JOS, one of Asia’s leading IT service and solutions providers with a strong footprint in Asia over the last 60 years, has power packed it in a concise ‘5 + 3 real innovation model’. The model was unveiled at its regional forum, JOS TALK, dedicated for Asia’s IT and business community on Trends, Advice, Leadership and Knowledge. The 2019 JOS TALK is themed MAKE INNOVATION REAL.

In Malaysia, the session was led by Mr Mark Lunt, JOS Group Managing Director and Mr Steven Soo, Managing Director of JOS Malaysia who navigated the 2019 outlook and challenges for businesses in Asia, including Malaysia.

“To make innovation real, technology plays a significant role. But technology can only enable successful innovation when it is combined with leadership and a clear strategy. Making innovation real needs to start small, win fast, then move on to more ambitious goals, having built credibility by delivering results,” said Mr Mark Lunt, JOS Group Managing Director.

JOS, a systems integrator, solutions provider and technology consultancy with deep local and industry knowledge and an exceptional ability to execute, has been working alongside over 10,000 customers across industries such as Financial Services, Hospitality, Manufacturing, Public Sector, Retail & Shopping Malls to help them charge through the challenges and excel in their innovation journeys.

Commenting on the Malaysian scenario, Mr Steven Soo, Managing Director of JOS Malaysia, said, “The challenge for local businesses is the shortage of talent. This is especially important in light of the national Industry 4.0 agenda. Certainly, it takes time to build this talent pool and 2019 presents a timely opportunity to start. JOS has been committed to the Malaysian market over the last 20 years and we are certainly in a position to help companies along in their digital strategy. Like other countries in the region, Malaysia’s economy will also be impacted by challenges trade developments.”

Lunt explained, “JOS’s real innovation model combines 5 technical pillars with 3 corporate dimensions which deliver results when bolstered by strong leadership in decision making within an open, secure and agile business environment.

“The five technical pillars are AI (artificial intelligence), IoT (internet of things), Big Data, Cloud and Cyber Security. These are the five most important technologies, all interrelated and closely correlated, in the drive to make innovation real.

“Data collected through IoT sensors can only bring meaningful business insights with a well-managed Big Data architecture. Success in AI and IoT projects also relies on the flexibility in computing power from Cloud and the analysis supported by the company’s Big Data strategy. In fact, AI is no longer the future. As reported by The Economist Corporate Network, more than 12% of Asian business leaders claimed that their businesses had begun experiencing the impact of AI since last year.[3] Certainly, no innovation initiative can deliver results without a holistic security strategy to protect corporate data and systems.

People, Culture, Organisation are equally important to make innovation real and good leadership is a key force to drive innovation across these corporate dimensions. A focused leader will dedicate resources such as time and capital for training existing talents and hiring external consultants to capitalise on technology for meaningful business value. Time is often required to nurture a new mind-set for innovation in any corporation but things can get a little smoother when a visionary leader inspires and cultivates a culture of innovation. An organisation structure is always foundational to sustain innovation by availing a process to filter ideas and measure meaningful results.”

Walking the talk to make innovation real, Lunt revealed that JOS also embarked on its own successful transformation two years ago. JOS is a radically different company today, transforming into a trusted technology partner for leading Asia businesses. JOS introduced new business models accelerated by new talent which translated into a new energy that complemented JOS’s established customer-focused culture.

Leveraging on its Asian expertise of over 60 years and 20 years leadership in the Malaysian market, Lunt and Soo also shared insights of their innovation journey with customers across Asia to help them realise the potential of technologies to deliver tangible results.

Lunt and Soo urged Asian businesses to focus on four areas in 2019 to tangibly benefit from real innovation - Focused innovation, Realistic Expectation, Pursue with Commitment & Right people and culture. Companies need to be focused in their innovation plan and identify the area that innovation is most needed and beneficial. This will form the start of the innovation journey and to benefit from meaningful results, realistic targets must then be aligned with market changes. Business leaders must also be committed to pursue innovation. Success in innovation requires the collaboration of the entire organisation that has the right talent and mindset.

Looking ahead, Lunt alluded to opportunities in robotic process automation (RPA) which serves as the groundwork for machine learning and AI. There is also the need to foster great integration in private-public partnership to unlock the business value in IoT especially in the area of developing smart cities. Developing a cloud-native environment will also be crucial for smoother flow of work and this hinges on the capability to manage and secure the private cloud environment in the public cloud. “Certainly the road ahead for innovation is exciting and JOS aims to partner our current and potential customers to walk the innovation journey together,” concluded Lunt.

JOS Launches “Make Innovation Real” to Drive Digital Transformation in Hong Kong

The first JOS TALK reveals how Hong Kong businesses can harness pioneering technology to deliver tangible business results

Hong Kong – 15 January, 2019 - JOS, a trusted technology partner and leading systems integrator, today announces its first JOS TALK initiative to unlock insights on digital innovation and foster knowledge and experience sharing with its customers and partners. The annual JOS TALK kicks off with the launch of its Make Innovation Real report, which provides Hong Kong businesses with guidance on how to turn their digital transformation and innovation goals into tangible commercial outcomes. 

Focused with technological disruption, challenges from determined startups, and rising customer expectations, businesses are embarking on a process of digital transformation in order to survive and remain competitive. However, many firms are struggling to keep pace due to tight budgets, unfocused or over-ambitious innovation plans and poorly directed technology investments. 

Forrester[1] has predicted that 2019 is the year that transformation projects will become more pragmatic as businesses move beyond experimentation and onto more focused innovation aimed at delivering tangible business improvements. The JOS Make Innovation Real (JOS MIR) report highlights how businesses can harness five key interrelated technologies to turn their digital transformation objectives into measurable business results. 

Mark Lunt, Group Managing Director, JOS said, “2019 will be the year when enterprises recognise that real innovation is a long-term continuous process. Businesses need to start small, win fast, and keep iterating. Then thinking bigger, more ambitious projects become an achievable. As a regional leader in Asia’s technology landscape, we believe our MIR report provides businesses with a set of clear guidelines to steer their digital transformation.” 

Eric Or, Managing Director, Greater China, JOS said, “Hong Kong enterprises rightly consider return on investment to be a top priority. Our MIR report should give Hong Kong firms the confidence to get to grips with digital transformation in a way that makes sense for them – helping them to realise the value of smaller digital initiatives as a platform for achieving more aspirational goals.”

A look into the JOS MIR report 

While technology plays a key role in digitisation, the right talent, mindset and leadership are equally important. JOS sees five technology pillars and three corporate principles as the core foundations for making innovation real. 

Technology pillars

  • Make AI Real – Start with RPA: A step-by-step approach is key to making AI work for any enterprise. Robotic process automation (RPA) offers a useful first stage towards more sophisticated implementations of machine learning and AI technology. 
  • Make Big Data Real – Empower User-driven Analytics: A winning Big Data strategy must do more than manage the three traditional Vs (volume, velocity and variety). Data veracity is essential for generating business value. A storage platform that brings together both structured and unstructured data enables enterprise users to extract meaningful information. 
  • Make IoT Real – Connecting Sensors and Systems: To create real business value from IoT, the “things’’ need to be integrated with the “system’’. Data collected from IoT sensors will only make sense and deliver business value when it can be integrated with existing enterprise systems. 
  • Make Innovation Real with Cloud – Drive Speed with Cloud-native Environment: A cloud-native environment is the foundation for driving innovation through DevOps and agile development, and providing the powerful, flexible technology infrastructures needed for success. 
  • Make Innovation Real and Secure – Built-in and Service-oriented Security: Digital innovation inherently opens up businesses to more cyber risks. A cybersecurity strategy must cover everything – from infrastructure and data architecture to applications. 


  • Open, Secure, Agile: Technology architecture to support innovation should be designed based on its openness and flexibility to interoperate with both emerging technologies and legacy systems.

Corporate principles 

  • People, Culture, Organisational Structure: Strong leadership is crucial for driving innovation. It needs to instil a positive culture that is open to new ideas, overcomes the barriers posed by traditional corporate mindsets, fosters development of the required skills, and understands and implements the change in organisation structure that are likely to be neccessary. 

Mr. Lunt continued, “Our MIR report will help business leaders to understand key trends in technology and innovation, and encourage them to pinpoint the operational areas in their companies where change will deliver tangible results. A successful digital transformation journey is a matter of setting clear and realistic objectives, pursuing them with purpose, and aligning corporate culture to support their delivery.”

JOS公佈「Make Innovation Real」報告驅動數碼轉型: 首個 JOS TALK 剖析香港企業如何利用領先技術實現具體的業務成果

香港 - 2019 年1月15日 - 作為亞洲區值得信賴的技術合作夥伴和領先的系統集成商,JOS公佈首個為驅動數碼創新、促進客戶及伙伴交流和經驗分享的 JOS TALK 企劃。本年度 JOS TALK 以「Make Innovation Real」報告揭開序幕,為香港企業提供指引,帶領他們如何在數碼轉型及定立創新目標時取得實際業務成果。 


Forrester[1] 預測隨著企業完成實驗性階段的數碼轉型,轉而追求可帶來業務增長的創新科技方案,2019 年將會是數碼轉型走向務實的一年。JOS Make Innovation Real (JOS MIR) 報告重點展示企業如何運用 5 項相關科技,將數碼轉型目標實現具體業務成果。 

JOS 集團董事總經理 Mark Lunt 表示:「踏入 2019 年,企業將認同真正的創新是一個長期及持續的過程。企業需先從小型項目入手並盡快完成目標,然後以其成功方案著手研發其他更具野心的新項目。作為亞洲科技的地區領袖,我們相信 MIR 報告能為企業提供了一套明確的指引,驅動數碼轉型。」

JOS 大中華區董事總經理柯志成表示:「香港企業最為注重投資回報率,而MIR報告為香港企業在數碼轉型上注入強心針,開展循序漸進的轉型過程 — 先協助實現小型項目的價值,再締造一個蘊含更多可能性的平台。」

JOS MIR 報告剖析企業實踐數碼創新的策略
商業數碼化的過程中,科技固然為一個關鍵元素,但合適的人才、思維及領導能力同樣重要。JOS 總括五個科技範疇及三項企業信念作為實踐創新的基礎:


  • 實現人工智能 – 從RPA開始︰循序漸進是讓人工智能適用於任何企業的關鍵。機械人流程自動化 (RPA) 成為了銜接更精密的機器學習及人工智能科技應用的第一步。
  • 實現大數據 – 啟動用家驅動型分析︰現今成功的大數據策略遠遠超過固有的三個元素 – 容量、速度和多樣化。數據真實性對於創造商業價值尤其重要。一個能夠整合結構化及非結構化數據的數據庫可讓企業從中提取更具意義的資訊。 
  • 實現物聯網 – 連繫電子設備及系統︰物聯網的電子設備必須結合完善的系統,讓企業系統存取及應用電子感應器所收集的數據,才能展現物聯網的真正價值。 
  • 以雲端平台實現創新 – 以原生雲端提升速度︰完善的雲端平台為應用「開發與執行」(DevOps) 及「敏捷開發」等開發模式奠定基礎,提供成功必備的強大及靈活技術基礎架構。
  • 實現創新及網絡安全 – 內建服務導向保安︰數碼創新讓企業面對更多潛在風險。企業必須覆蓋所有科技基礎建設、數據系統以至應用程式,制訂完善的數碼保安方案。


  • 開放、安全、靈活︰企業需根據其開放性及靈活性設計技術框架,並與各種新興科技和現有系統接軌。


  • 人才、文化及企業架構︰優秀的領導是企業創新不可或缺的一環。企業正面文化必須包括接納意見、突破傳統企業思維、培訓員工技能發展、以及了解並執行必需的企業架構重整。

Mark Lunt 補充︰「我們的MIR報告將協助企業領袖了解科技創新的關鍵趨勢,並鼓勵公司查明改革能夠帶來具體成果的業務領域。成功的數碼轉型必須具備明確及可行的目標、達成目標的決心以及能有效提升業務效能的企業文化。」

Hong Kong – 5 March 2018 – To foster the development of innovation and technology (I&T), it was mentioned in “The 2018-19 Budget” that the government would set aside HK$50 billion for supporting I&T development, and would earmark HK$500 million under the I&T fund to implement the Technology Talent Scheme, showing the great importance attached to I&T development and cultivation of innovative talents. JOS, which is a systems integrator, solutions provider and technology consultancy company, organised the 3rd JOS Innovation Awards, aiming to nurturing talents for the innovation industry and equipping tertiary students the essential skills needed in the industry. The final competition and awards presentation was held on 3rd March 2018, selecting the well-deserved awardees. The Finger Exercise Device for Early Stage of Osteoarthritis Patients designed by students of Hong Kong Polytechnic University crowned the champion.

JOS has organised various activities throughout the awards, providing professional advices from industry by organising the first-ever Marketho[1], workshops and providing tutorials, thus contributing to nurturing the talented persons for the innovation industry. The theme of the competition is “Happy Ageing – Innovation Healthcare Solution”. Focusing on these two areas, “Ageing population” and “healthcare”, student contestants utilised the use of “Internet of Things”, “Mobile Operation” and “Internet Solution” to develop an innovation technology, which could help taking care of the elderly and thus enhancing their quality of life.

After rounds of battles, nine out of forty-eight finalist teams from different tertiary institutions were shortlisted to enter the final competition. The works of the final teams were able to meet the practical needs of the elderly and their products were marketable. They presented their solutions in front of judges and the live audience at the final. Some of the teams brought along their prototypes or smart devices, such as “Sleeping Monitor” for demonstration on the spot.

As one of the judges of the Awards, Mr. Eric OR, Managing Director of JOS Hong Kong & Macau, commented that JOS welcomes the strategic boost from the HKSAR government which focuses on developing 4 of its areas of strength. “With the Awards, JOS aims to inspire, nurture and recognise students for their smart ideas and innovative thinking. Since 2015, the JOS Innovation Awards have inspired over 500 tertiary education students to put their innovative ideas into practice and solve real-world problems, to making our world a more efficient and better place to live.”, said Mr. OR.

“Through the competition, students generated a strong interest in innovation technology. They had a chance to observe the performances of other teams, and this provided them with a valuable learning experience. The organisational and articulation skills of competing teams were above par. Their excellent creativity and enthusiasm in innovation technology exemplified the endless research and development potential of Hong Kong new generation.” said Ms. Jenny PONG, judge of the Awards and Group Director of Human Resources of the JTH Group.

After an intense competition, the winning trophy was given to CHEUNG Ching Yee, CHAN Hiu Lam, FONG Tsz Ching and LIM JooMi from Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Their winning project was “Finger Exercise Device for Early Stage of Osteoarthritis Patients”. The winning team was given a cash prize of HK$30,000, and was offered an internship by JOS and a visit to Singapore. The first runner-up was given to LEUNG Ka Ming, Jeremy, HO Yik Chung, Grayson, LEE Wing Yu, Michelle, NG Chak Lam, Rica and TSE Ho Yin, Thomas from University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and City University of Hong Kong and their winning project was “Algotritionist”.

The second runner-up was given to LAU Hoi Sing, FAN Po Chuen, CHAN Hoi Yat and TSANG Long Fung from Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education – Sha Tin, and their winning project was “Sleeping Monitor”.

The champion team “Finger Exercise Device for Early Stage of Osteoarthritis Patients” commented they were very honoured to have joined JOS Innovation Awards, and been recognised by the judges. “During the competition, we have improved our products and understood more about the needs of the elderly. We hope we can contribute to the society, and help the development of Hong Kong’s medical technology. ”

Many contestants expressed that JOS had provided them with an important platform to practice their concepts. They thanked the experts for providing them with comments and ideas, which enabled them to comprehend the needs of the elderly and the present situation in the consumer market. They looked forward to further improving their products, and to launching their products to the market for the benefits of the people in need.

“The Most Popular Innovation Award” was newly created this year and was voted by the audience. The winner of this Award was “Super Senior”. The Award encouraged young people to devote themselves to innovation technology; to provide them with practical learning; to develop their career and to give them opportunities to chase after their dreams.

[1] Similar to the concept of “Hackathon”, the innovative term “Markethon” is a combination of the two words “Marketing” and “Marathon”. Each competing team must, during an hour of Peer Presentation & Challenge, arrange to have half of their team members to be questioned by another team, and to send the rest of the team members to challenge members of another team with questions. During the process, JOS’ sales and marketing experts will also participate. The aim of the “Markethon” is to inspire students’ innovative ideas and problem-solving capabilities through challenging one another intensively within a short period of time.

Hong Kong – 24 February, 2017 – JOS, one of Asia’s leading IT services and solutions providers, today recognised young Hong Kong talent for their smart ideas to solve modern city issues at the second annual JOS Innovation Awards, held at Hong Kong Science Park. FasTABLE, which helps shorten wait times in fast food chains, took the Platinum prize at the Awards. Following 37 submissions from more than 10 universities and tertiary institutions, eight shortlisted teams showcased their advanced technology project ideas at today’s culmination event. EZPark and PLUS II took Gold and Silver.

Under the leadership and guidance of JOS experts, student teams build upon their innovations they’ve dreamt up and hone their presentation skills. There is a unique opportunity for two-way learning – students receive nurturing mentorship and inspiration from JOS, while we get to learn from the outlooks and aspirations of young people today.”

“The JOS Innovation Awards are an integral part of our talent acquisition strategy. Apart from members of the Platinum-winning team earning internship opportunities, other suitable candidates we have identified during the shortlisting process will also be eligible for invitations to our internship and graduate trainee programs.

JOS showcases powerful Network Segmentation at Cisco Security Connect 2017

Hong Kong – 9 February, 2017– JOS presented Network Segmentation at Cisco Security Connect 2017 held at The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 20 January 2017. The JOS booth attracted a large number of visitors who came to experience the benefits of these technologies through the combined efforts of JOS and Cisco. JOS demonstrated how to securely control network access that is role-based and topology- and access-independent by network segmentation. The result is even if hackers make their way into an organisation’s network, they can no longer move freely about and cause widespread damage.

Cisco Security Connect is an iconic industry event for delegates to gain insights and discover new possibilities of global trends from industry thought leaders. More than 400 attendees across different sectors participated in this year’s event, and learned the latest technology on integrated threat defense, next-generation security protection, convergence of network and security, as well as cloud security.

Entitled “Cisco Network as an Enforcer”, JOS shared with the delegates on how JOS and Cisco assist them in taking advantage of digital business opportunities in a more secure way. JOS has been recognised for high quality technology consultancy and deep sector knowledge in the market. The showcase enabled JOS to exhibit the company’s competitive edge over other industry players to help clients achieve business successes, and furnish them with the optimal user experience.

JOS has successfully delivered an exceptional experience to the visitors with proven quality and in-depth knowledge.

JOS and JLT join forces to offer world-class cyber insurance solutions in Asia

First-of-its-kind partnership between a technology solutions provider and a top insurance broker to help customers tackle mounting threats to enterprise security

Malaysia – 7 December, 2016 – JOS, one of Asia’s leading providers of IT services and solutions, is partnering with Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT), leading suppliers of insurance, reinsurance and employee benefits-related advice, brokerage and associated services, to launch an innovative suite of cyber insurance and consultancy services as part of JOS’s comprehensive cyber security solutions.

JOS offers a range of cyber security technology and consulting services to ensure its customers stay one step ahead of cyber threats. JLT’s cyber insurance solutions help cover the insured party’s own costs and liabilities resulting from threats, damage or loss of information, as well as the use of systems or networks which are typically not protected under the majority of insurance on the market today.

The combination of JLT’s knowledge of cyber insurance and access to specialist markets with JOS’s suite of cyber security consultancy services is a unique partnership at the leading edge of the industry. This is the first time that a technology consultancy with the long heritage and far reach of JOS is working hand-in-hand with an insurance broker like JLT to offer comprehensive cyber insurance solutions to clients across Asia; via JLT’s hubs in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.

JOS Group Managing Director, Mark Lunt spoke of the significance of the partnership between JOS and JLT, saying: “We are proud to be at the helm of the next generation of cyber security solutions together with our partner JLT. Working together we are able to provide customers with the unique opportunity to access tailored cyber coverage from one of the world’s leading insurers. With technology underpinning the operations and performance of every international business, it is now more important than ever for market leaders such as JOS and JLT to form strategic partnerships that will enable customers to stay secure in the face of advanced and persistent cyber security risks.”

JOS Group Head of Cyber Security Services, Barnaby Grosvenor added: “Coupled with JLT’s industry leadership, JOS is well poised to help organisations assess, combat and manage a broad range of cyber risks. By capitalising on cutting-edge industry and proprietary tools, JOS is delivering integrated cyber security solutions for customers in Asia – from tailor-made assessments, to a menu of security essentials, to a comprehensive long-term suite of consultancy and services.”

JLT’s Managing Director, Financial Lines Group Asia, Ali Chaudhry went on to say: “At JLT, we have a strong focus on providing clients with specialty products. In the area of cyber security a deep understanding of product and exposure is key. New IT risks are developing rapidly for practically all of our clients, leading to the need for a proactive and innovative approach. In working together with JOS, we are excited to be able to offer our clients customised, end-to-end solutions that will help reduce and manage their cyber security costs and exposures. In parallel, we are also launching our Asian cyber risk analytics tool that will provide our clients with quantitative information on their risk profiles.”

Under the partnership, JOS becomes the flagship member of the JLT Cyber Consortium for Asia. JLT’s Cyber Consortium is a unique global community of leading companies and subject matter experts across the cyber ecosystem that continually collaborate on cyber risk best practices and thought leadership to support mutual clients around their strategic, operational, financial and human resource issues impacted by cyber risk.
