Data Warehouse System at the National Level
Part of GHSC’s initiative is to integrate halal related data between various agencies and institutions. This is due to the fragmentation of data and information and scattered location of halal related data within the government agencies. To address the needs, one of HDC business technology approach is to create a Data Warehousing System Project. The Data Warehouse system has the ability to process data to be more informative – sense. With this system, HDC would be able to produce comprehensive industry reports which to measure and report the progress and the development of halal industry in more holistic approach. To name a few, the system generates the Halal Export report, Malaysian Halal certified companies profiling and many others. Participating agencies are also contributing their aggregated data and to do this, HDC is working closely with other government agencies in data selection, filtration and gathering halal related data.
The Halal Data Warehouse System Project was launched officially by HDC in March 2013. To monitor and administer the Halal trade and statistic reports, HDC has initiated the Halal Data Warehouse Project Steering Committee chaired by YBhg. Dato’ Nik Rahmat Nik Taib, Deputy Secretary General, Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI). The steering committee meets quarterly and more than 20 agencies participated as the member of the committee.
