Takaful IKHLAS Invests in IT Infrastructure to Improve Performance

Takaful Ikhlas Sdn. Bhd. announced its purchase of the IBM POWER7® System to create an advanced and smarter Information Technology (IT) environment to cater for its explosive growth in the next three years.

This RM800,000 investment via IBM channel distributor SL Information System Sdn Bhd, is part of the Syariah-compliant insurance company’s transition to a dynamic infrastructure to support the company’s growth over the next 3 years.

Takaful Ikhlas CEO Dato' Syed Moheeb Syed Kamarulzaman shares “In line with our tradition to keep raising the bar of expectations and performance, we are looking to exponential growth over the next few years. The management believes that the support from technology and good infrastructure will play a significant role to help us achieve this vision.”

Takaful Ikhlas previously purchased the IBM POWER5 Systems. “This upgrade to the IBM POWER7 Systems enables increased efficiency by four times (4x) in terms of performance and workload consolidation capacity; as well as makings better use of energy for saving costs and contributing towards a greener IT environment,” says Dato' Syed Moheeb.

Takaful Ikhlas’ purchase of the IBM POWER 750 8-way server is the first deployment of the IBM POWER7 systems in Malaysia since its launch in March 2010.
