Dedicated to be a prime promoter of the knowledge hub with distinctive emphasis in the knowledge management system, In-Fusion Solutions Sdn. Bhd. (ISSB) is now making its mark in the local on-demand knowledge delivery landscape and plans to become a public listed company in the near future.

On the other hand, other tools to support crucial business finctions of which are located at different locations and on different platforms, such as help-desk, customer relationship management,financial management, etc. also need to be enhanced and some need to be developed. The current inter-networking infrastructure also calls for the CIO and ISSB's management attention. IT resources such as hardware and sofhvare among employee and remote access solution many increase eficiency by permitting remote users to securely access information from anywhere at anytime and this needs to be addressed urgently.

In a nutshell, these issues need to be resolved as soon as possible for the company to move forward to be public listed next year and to be able to keep up with fiture projects in the pipeline.
