DIRECTOR'S WELCOMING SPEECH
Welcome everyone to the web portal of the Information & Communication Technology Centre (PTMK) of Universiti Malaysia Pahang. In this portal you shall find our vision, mission and client charter that shows our commitment and effort in making this centre Relevant, Referred and Respected in our community within and outside of UMP.
"To be the heartbeat of technology in UMP…”
We live in an age where technology is no longer outside anyone’s reach. It has become so accessible that even a child with no training can operate computers, mobile phones and tablets effectively.
What does this mean to us IT Professionals? Would this make us irrelevant?
Surely not. To keep up with the growing trends in the world of technology, we need to constantly reinvent our methods. We cannot keep working the same way and expect the world to stand still - we need to sprint alongside the latest technologies and try and keep ahead of the world around us. Words like ‘Blockchain’, ‘IoT’, ‘IR4.0’, ‘IaaS’ and so on should not just be buzzwords thrown around, but needs to be at the heart of every solution that is developed within our walls.
This is the direction that this centre will strive towards; as a living organism constantly trying to better itself to stay in the cutting edge of technology. The only way to keep up, is to be passionate about what we do.
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.” - Steve Jobs
