MIMOS straddled two momentous eras in 2017 as CEO Datuk Abdul Wahab said goodbye at the end of July to make way for incoming new leader and third CEO Ahmad Rizan Ibrahim. While we are mindful that our mission remains, a new chief opens a new chapter with fresh opportunities, and a sense of recharged optimism.
After notching key milestones in the first and second quarter, MIMOS moved into the second half of 2017 as a dominant technology provider when the incoming CEO began his journey by building on thriving relationships and establishing new ties.
2017 was, in essence, about a beautiful, seamless transition, about trust gained and renewed, and about triumphs and trials. As we look toward the way ahead, we remain committed to growing our outcomes and developing our greatest assets, our people.Transition Trust Triumphs
In essence, 2017 has been another significant year for MIMOS in terms of technology development and deployment. Our activities revealed a powerful momentum, which is evident from throughout the country’s innovation ecosystem to the benefactors of our technologies. Four areas of highlights are Intelligent Communities, Modern Policing, Advanced Electrical and Electronics; and FinTech – with Big Data and Blockchain also dominating the scenes. Our achievements in 2017 are thanks to contributions from each member of the ecosystem.
We were pleased with our cumulative results (2004-2017). Our clear vision, purposeful mission and strong values have allowed us to achieve desired outcomes, not only for ourselves but also for our stakeholders.
MIMOS has always been a vibrant centre of knowledge, excellence, discovery and engagement; and 2017 was no different. Besides establishing more than 15 collaborations, MIMOS hosted or participated in scores of events with the Government, business and scientific communities alike; while MIMOSians are not left behind too.
MIMOS continued to strengthen collaborations with key partners in industry and academia. Undertakings for the year began with a venture in FinTech, followed by a talent development initiative in the Electrical and Electronics sector.Read More

MIMOS always look forward to nurturing relationships with government agencies, industry and academia, as well as young people – from local and abroad – towards creating a stronger ecosystem. Receiving visits from these stakeholders on a daily basis is something MIMOS takes pride in, as it further enhances the symbiosis towards enriching innovation and business network.
They may have been hungry for breakthroughs and always eager to drive innovation, but MIMOSians have no doubt that they bat a thousand when it comes to work-life balance – from donating blood and competing in sports matches to contributing to charity, all in the name of togetherness, teamwork, community good and self-fulfillment.
