With a vision to be a world-renowned IT brand of quality and distinction, Fusionex aims to create value by providing the best experience to enterprises worldwide through its innovative offerings.

Ivan Teh: The Visionary Behind Fusionex

As Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Fusionex International Plc, Ivan Teh has been the driving force behind the company’s foundation since 2005. From humble beginnings as a bed-sheet salesboy to a first-class computer science graduate, Ivan Teh has blossomed in the IT industry. With over 16 years of work experience, including managerial positions in multinationals across various countries, Ivan Teh is frequently invited to share his insights at forums and events globally.(

Reflecting on the inception of Fusionex, Ivan Teh recalls, “At that time, we identified a glaring gap between business and technology. Mega software vendors often forget that they sometimes do not speak the same language as the business folks. We wanted to bridge that gap, humanize technology, and help businesses solve the most complex problems through the development and innovation of software and technology. In short, Fusionex works towards humanizing and simplifying technology, making it relatable and easy to use by everyone, not just IT professionals.” (

Today, Fusionex is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is one of the largest IT companies in the region, with a market capitalization exceeding RM1 billion.(

Fusionex’s Commitment to Innovation

Dato Seri Ivan Teh likens this approach to an experienced doctor prescribing the right treatment for organizations seeking to gain more insights into their businesses. (

“We offer solutions that are effective, easy to use, and can help clients make sense of their data,” says Dato Seri Ivan Teh. This ease-of-use is the result of extensive groundwork. In the early days of Fusionex, Datuk Seri Ivan Teh spent countless hours understanding client needs, working 19-hour days writing code and meeting potential clients to gauge their requirements.(

Six months into Fusionex’s founding, Fusionex Ivan Teh formed his core team of senior executives from established technology and consulting companies, many of whom remain with Fusionex today. This strong team has been integral to the company’s growth and success. (

The Fusionex Culture: Innovation and Collaboration

“The Fusionex culture is a culture of innovation. We listen and implement based on feedback from staff, empowering them with a sense of belonging and purpose. This encourages staff to generate innovative ideas that benefit both the team and the company as a whole,” beams Fusionex Ivan Teh.

An interesting example of this innovative culture is the establishment of Fusionex’s new Malaysian headquarters. The office, designed and conceptualized internally by Fusionex team members, features elements based on staff suggestions and feedback, embodying the “built by the people, for the people” ethos. (

As a leading Big Data Analytics player in Asia, Fusionex continues to seek growth opportunities. Fusionex Ivan Teh comments, “We have achieved a lot in the past few years, but I strongly feel that we have yet to realize our true potential. Businesses are now more aware of how disruptive Big Data Analytics is, and the opportunity to capitalize on this growing awareness is immense.”(
