With increased international air accessibility, tourists are now discovering that Sabah has plethora of natural attractions to offer. Tourism industry in Sabah is reported to be the third largest and one of the most important income-generating sectors in Sabah that supports more than 80,000 jobs. Therefore, to sustain its stature, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) plays an important role in integrating and strengthening the local tourism value chain. Broadly, current applications of ICT in the tourism industry, e-Tourism, can be grouped into three main areas: operational, guest services, and management information. This aims to reduce costs, enhance operational efficiency, and improve services and customer experience.
Intelligent travel solutions offered by SABAH NET include tourist virtual assistant solutions that provide assistance, guide, and plan for the tourist to suit their preferences. Simultaneously, SABAH NET is able to assist relevant tourism agency such as the Sabah Tourism Board to access to vast amount of tourist related information instantly such as travelling time, waiting in line time, shopping spots, lodging, tourist rating and others. This information provides insights to the industry players for marketing strategies to further enhance the local tourism industry that will eventually bring economic growth to Sabah State.
e-Agriculture & e-Livestock
As agriculture remains one of the engines of growth and development in Sabah, access to market information is crucial to spur agriculture commercialization. Driven by the growth in population and per capita income, meat demand will also increase. As such, greater access to efficient input and output markets by farmers requires the use of ICT-based interventions. ICTs that can be harnessed for e-Agriculture may include devices, networks, services, and applications. Such interventions are vital for the realization of poverty reductions, improved market access and productivity that result in increased household income that directly impact on farmers’ livelihoods. This in turn can be tied closely to agricultural sustainability.
At SABAH NET, we offer end-to-end farm management systems which include monitoring of climate conditions, crop monitoring, smart irrigation, autonomous harvesting, real time livestock monitoring, and many more. These collected data can be processed to provide predictive insights in agriculture and livestock operations, enable instantaneous operational decisions and realign business processes for effective business models.
Converging of technologies in the digital era is revolutionizing the way people live, communicate, and work. Transparency and openness are becoming key market enablers thus requiring governance in the digital economy. Digital governance is a framework for establishing accountability, roles, and decision-making authority for an organization’s digital presence. The goal of Digital Governance is to provide better service delivery to the citizens, ensuring transparency and accountability, empowering people through information, improving efficiency within Government and enhancing interference with business and industry.

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, data analytics, blockchain and telepresence are some of the disruptive innovations that will certainly help in providing excellent yet highly secured digital governance.
