The project, spearheaded and initiated by Setia Haruman Sdn Bhd, is a talent development program that empowers, trains and prepares local graduates with the right skills set in making them employable with high impact companies in Cyberjaya.

The CGEE 2014 Program also aims to improve the mismatch between graduates from local institutions of higher learning (IHL) and the multinationals (MNC) in Cyberjaya, but not limited to only such companies, that have set up operations in Cyberjaya, but also for MNCs in the country.

Prior to the launch ceremony, DPM was given a briefing on the current development of Cyberjaya, and expressed his satisfaction on the progress made, that had exceeded expectations and was impressed that Cyberjaya was on the right track in achieving the government's vision to become an intelligent city with world-class standards and a global technology hub that supports and drives the nation's economic prosperity.

Present at the launch of the program was CGEE promoter, YBhg Tan Sri Datuk (Dr) Hj Mustapha Kamal, who is the Chairman of Setia Haruman. The launch event also saw 4 representatives from the current batch of CGEE trainees and 2 of the 2013 CGEE trainees' representatives, who are currently employed with IBM and HSBC, take to the stage to illustrate the "buddy system" between the old and new trainees via large jigsaw puzzle pieces held together. CGEE 2014 sees the involvement of 139 graduates from 6 universities, Yayasan Sime Darby and 6 industry partners

It is projected that over the span of 3 years (2015, 2016, 2017), approximately 10,000 job opportunities will be made available by companies in Cyberjaya. After witnessing the launch, the Deputy Prime Minister endorsed his full support for the program and expressed confidence that more local and international high impact companies and brands will set up their base in Cyberjaya with the availability of more local graduates with the right skills set to meet the demand of these companies.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate.
