The Philippine business sector has the potential to flourish faster and uplift the economy, if it embraces the digital technology, according to local cloud computing pioneer IP Converge Data Services Inc.
IPC asked business executives, entrepreneurs and technology buffs to take part in the upcoming 2016 Philippine Cloud Summit under the theme “IoT: The Pinnacle of Digital” which will be held at SMX Convention Center at SM Aura Premier in Taguig City on June 29.
The summit aims to teach businesses on how to turn their companies into a digitally empowered workplace and to help them harness the benefits to day-to-day operations, employee engagement and the bottom line.
“By now, every businessman must have realized how a digitally connected workplace translates into better performance and higher engagement across the organization. Real-time access to vital information is necessary when making mission-critical decisions. By embracing digital, the Philippine business sector has the potential to flourish faster and uplift the economy, in line with our country being dubbed as Asia’s Rising Tiger,” said IPC president Reynaldo Huergas.
Participants of the Philippine Cloud Summit will gain the opportunity to listen to over 10 local and global thought leaders as they share their insights on the current state of technology in the business arena.
Among the speakers are King-Yew Foong, research vice president and chief of research for communications service providers at Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company and Kenneth Siow, head of strategic sales and business development – Asia at tech giant Google.
Other speakers will be from CloudSigma, Nexusguard, Imperva Incapsula, CR8V Web Services, Salesforce, Bluecloud Australia, Smart Communications and PayMaya. Each will tackle various aspects of enterprise IT, focusing on infrastructure and security, workplace productivity and business mobility.
The event also marks a significant milestone in Philippine cloud computing with the launch of the Cloud Community of the Philippines, a vendor-agnostic community that will serve as a venue for sharing of ideas and best practices, whether technical or operational, among individuals who build, develop, maintain and use cloud computing infrastructure, platforms, and applications in the country.
