Golden Touch How An Employee Saved MAS RM70Mil

A Malaysian Airline System Bhd employee spent many a night burning the midnight oil to design a database solution that rivals commercial systems.

And in doing so, Sharul Isahak said he saved the high-flying company RM70mil.

Alternative solution

Designing E-Promis was not a simple affair because Sharul had to look for the cheapest means possible to create the software.

“This meant looking at open-source solutions. Instead of platforms such as Microsoft or Sun, we chose LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP),” he said.

Plus, E-Promis is a web-based system, which makes it easily accessible from any terminal.

Sharul is the sole programmer and architect of the software but what is even more impressive is that he had zero knowledge of programming.

“I started from scratch. It took me countless hours doing research on programming. I really pushed myself to the limit," he said.
