ACCESS THE ENTERPRISE IOT MARKET IN ASEAN
Asia IoT Business Platform Philippines 2020 (Virtual) | 12 to 16 October 2020
The Philippines is leading the world in terms of the number of hours spent on the internet (10 hours 2 minutes per day compared to the global average of 6 hours 42 minutes); while the number of mobile users in Philippines (61.0 million) is greater than the total population of Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos, Singapore and Brunei combined.
Digital initiatives has been identified as one of the key areas that would bolster Philippine's growth and the government has committed to 5 – 7% spending on infrastructure.The Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) and non-profit group Internet Society (ISOC) has collaborated to develop the National ICT Ecosystem Framework (NIEF) 2022, which seeks to foster an environment that includes integrated planning and policy measures to encourage different parties to use ICT collaboratively while promoting accessibility, security and sustainability.
At the end of 2018, Mislatel became the third telecommunications service provider in the Philippines, ending the duopoly of the local telcos. The government aims to drive more innovation and to improve the state of connectivity in the country, a common complaint among users who have suffered for years with slow internet speeds (ranked 5th slowest globally by the 2019 We Are Social report). At the same time, the Department of Education (DepEd) partnered with telecommunications company Globe to implement a digital literacy program across 3,800 public schools in Central Visayas to educate both teachers and students about responsible digital citizenship.
With a young majority working population (the Philippines, among her ASEAN neighbors, has the most balanced population pyramid with a heavy base and a light top of only 5% of the population above the age of 65), such education and training programs can help the Filipinos become more agile in adapting to the future developments of the global digital economy.
Themed “Enhancing ROI of Enterprise Technology Investments”, this is the 37th edition of the Asia IoT Business Platform series and the 6th year it is being hosted in the Philippines. The sessions will bring together enterprises from public and private sectors to explore the possibility of adopting digital solutions to build smarter cities and efficient business. Over 300 senior stakeholders from government, telecommunications, manufacturing, logistics, transportation, healthcare, banking and financial services will be present to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by technology.
