In 2002, The iA Group, known then as Innovation Associates, was incorporated as a national management and IT consulting firm in Malaysia. The two founders, Halim Hj Din and Datuk Dr. Hamzah Kassim were former partners of Ernst & Young Malaysia and vice presidents of Cap Gemini & Ernst & Young, a global consulting firm.
iA started with a strong foundation as a result of business continuity request from Cap Gemini to continue the delivery of various projects in Malaysia when they decided to exit Malaysia and other Asian market as part of its global restructuring.
Together, the partners set out to establish a firm based on the principles of integrity, professionalism and trust to deliver end-to-end innovative solutions. The concept of end-to-end solutions is integral to company philosophy.
It encompasses our business strategy of delivering maximum value to clients through think > build > operate model.
Our workforce comprises of various nationalities. Each is passionate and ambitious. Each is highly trained, experienced specialist. As committed players with international exposure, they are unbeatable.
As iA reaches across the globe from our home base in Malaysia, we have established offices in Indonesia and Saudi Arabia.
The core strength of the company is in our integrity, professionalism, trust and above all, passion for partnering innovative solutions. After all, ‘innovation’ was our original name.
