RP Enterprise CIOs Look Up to Cloud Computing as Top Solution Series of CIO forums validate fast cloud computing adoption in the region
November 16, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsGlobal Gateway Innovation Exchange, or G2iX, the pioneer in SaaS and Open Source in the Philippines has recently concluded a series of CIO Forums around the theme "Trends in Strategic IT Solutions in a Tough Economy". More recently they have released top-line results of the discussions among CIOs and CTOs of global enterprises located in Manila and Cebu.
"Cost savings, reduced time to market, and rapid ROI — these are three key factors that IT and business executives alike cite when asked about the value of cloud computing," says Winston Damarillo, chief executive officer for G2iX, in reference to the results of the CIO forums.
Cloud computing — a technology that "enables on-demand utilization of a shared, infinite amount of compute resources or computing power via the Internet" — is fast becoming mainstream in the Philippines. Morph Labs (www.mor.ph) pioneered Software as a Service and Platform as a Service in the country and continues to introduce new products to its line of cloud infrastructure solutions.
Just last month in Geneva, Switzerland, Morph Labs launched the Morph CloudServer. Morph CloudServer offers businesses a more effective way to safely pilot new ideas, facilitate global expansion, and significantly decrease time to market.
Following industry-leading standards established by Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Eucalyptus, the Morph CloudServer offers unprecedented flexibility, control and agility for developing and deploying software on a massive scale.
This effort was recognized by no less than Secretary Ray Anthony Roxas-Chua, secretary of the Philippines' Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), when he remarked that, "Cloud computing technology, such as the Filipino co-developed Morph Cloud Server, provides emerging countries with affordable access to world-class ICT infrastructure."
Damarillo further emphasizes that, "Infrastructure is generally underutilized. The enterprise ecosystem in the Philippines, particularly the telecommunications sector, can bank on cloud computing and Software as a Service (SaaS) to significantly reduce time, costs, as well as headaches and deliver innovations within their organization."
G2iX plans to hold more CIO Forums in 2010 to further discover trends and share best practices among the country's top innovators.
