VADS was incorporated on 29 November 1990 and formed in 1991 as a joint venture between Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) and IBM Malaysia Sdn Bhd (IBM) to take advantage of the convergence of the IT and Telecommunications Industry. The Company officially started operations the following year. Two other partners joined in the venture in 1993 and 1995, namely Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) respectively.
Its main activities are Managed Networks Services, Contact Centre Services (which has now evolved to Business Process Outsourcing) and Systems Integration Services.
VADS was listed on the Second Board of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (then Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange) (Bursa Securities) on 7 August 2002 — making it the first TM subsidiary to be listed. On February 19th, 2009, VADS was delisted from Bursa.
