JAKARTADAILY.ID - As the end of 2022 approaches, PT IndoSterling Technomedia (TECH) works with the Association of Higher Education Institutions in Computer Science and Information Technology (APTIKOM) to play an active role in accelerating digital transformation and learning optimization in Indonesian higher education institutions.
"As one of the country's major Edutech companies, Edufecta is here to provide real solutions for the advancement of the Indonesian higher education institutions, particularly those specializing on the information technology and computer science," said Ucu Komarudin, CEO of PT Technomedia Interkom Cemerlang (Edufecta), in his remarks at the Aptikom National Conference on Thursday, Desember 8, 2022.
Through the digital platform developed by Edufecta, universities and colleges can easily provide the essential information systems to support the teaching and learning process within the institutions, as well as performing talent management.
Prof. Ir. Zainal A. Hasibuan Ph.D, Chairman of APTIKOM, stated that currently, out of 1,500 information technology and computer science campuses throughout Indonesia, more than half of them (approximately 850 campuses) accommodate more than 500,000 students from D1 to D3 levels. They produce 40,000 to 50,000 university and college graduates per year.
"Collaboration with Tech not only speeds up the digitalization of universities under APTIKOM through Edufecta, but we are also immediately aided in terms of the prospect of apprenticeships to talent management, which is important for alumni tracking," he added.
According to Zainal A. Hasibuan, in addition to the well-managed data, the education accreditation system in Indonesia demands a mix and match with industry, which means that it requires a talent management system as a solution as well as a strategy to address the alumni career issues and what the industry needs.
This is in line with the theme of the 6th APTIKOM National Conference 2022 held in Bali on December 8-10: Empowering Artificial Intelligence to Accelerate Digital Transformation in the era of Industrial Revolution 4.0
Towards Society 5.0
Ucu Komarudin, CEO of PT Technomedia Interkom Cemerlang (Edufecta), said that, before working with the APTIKOM, Edufecta program has also gained positive response from the Association of Indonesian Private Universities (APSTI).
This program can assist universities and colleges throughout Indonesia to perform digital transformation and enhance campus management system.
He said that since the beginning of 2022, collaboration between higher education institutions and Edufecta has been implemented in 181 cities and 32 provinces.
The majority of these private universities can enjoy the benefits of digitalization offered by Edufecta.
Ucu Komarudin is thankful that the Edufecta initiative is directly supported by Kemdikbudristek (the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology), which aims to accelerate campus digitalization.
"So far, collaboration between higher education institutions and Edufecta has been in accordance with trends in the Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0 eras, where digitalization of higher education institutions in Indonesia has to be completed rapidly, equally, and sustainably," he concluded.
