Introduction to the Share/Guide Association of Malaysia:

The SHARE/GUIDE ASSOCIATION (MALAYSIA) is an IT Users Group and a non-profit association, whose member organizations are primarily users of technology and IT services. SGAM or the Malaysia IT Users Group serves as a forum for IT users to network and exchange information, experience, thoughts, views and best practices. It is also a forum for working collaboratively with IT service providers and other related groups to help members leapfrog in harnessing technology for their businesses and for greater mutual benefits.

This year the SGAM annual  conference and ICT awards were held at Selesa Beach Resort in Port Dickson over a period of 2 days. Overall it was a successful conference with the participation of more than 300 delegates from the various IT users organizations in Malaysia. Although the topics of discussions in the IT fields are not meant for mere mortals like me I am sure the delegates have gained new insight and ideas from the various successful ICT projects undertaken by some of the award winning organizations.

Contrary to popular belief, IT people are not boring or “all work and no play” types. Their certainly shed their “geek” stereotype image by taking part in the SGAM idol karaoke competition in full force. The SGAM idol participants had on that faithful night dispelled all notions that they were all Bill Gates’s clones by showcasing some of the best singing talents the crowds had ever seen. Even the winner could not be determined on first count of the votes and a tie-breaker were eventual called upon to determine the best of the best. And they left the crowds wanting more! What a memorable night…. they truly have some best kept talents in their midst……
