IP Converge on Going Digital, Consumerization of IT, Growth Engines for SMEs

“There are over 95,000 small to medium enterprises in the country, with each and every one having the potential to grow and compete on a global scale. With a wide assortment of online tools now within reach, there is no better time to be an SME than today,” said Reynaldo Huergas, President of IPC (IP Converge Data Services, Inc.), a local cloud services and data center pioneer.

According to data from the research agency We Are Social, the Philippines harbors an Internet penetration of 44 percent. For businesses, this translates to the opportunity to engage almost half the total population via the Internet, and ultimately, cultivate huge potential for growth.

Filipinos are mobile, with about 32 million active mobile Internet users. This makes going digital and embracing the consumerization of IT, more critical than ever. Enterprises need to reach their customers via various channels such as social media, email and mobile. “People want information in real time and if they can’t get it from you, they’ll get it from your competitors. Business is lost,” said Huergas.

Huergas said that 2016 is also the time to tap big data and analytics. “Big data analytics can give valuable insights about your customers and target market. In essence, it uses statistics to understand customer behavior which allows for more effective campaigns and product or service developments that help achieve optimum results.”

Going digital also requires businesses and their employees to be mobile. They must be able to work remotely, from wherever they are to ensure that operations go on no matter what. For instance, businesses can maximize Google Apps for Work to help them communicate (via Gmail, Calendar, Hangouts, etc.), store (via Drive), and collaborate (via Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc.) with one another. Additionally, there are cloud-based products like CRM that help businesses in customer relationship management that will allow them to achieve and maintain leadership and profitability.

“Moreover, the World Wide Web has long opened the channels to access international markets. With social media and a myriad of available digital tools, local enterprises can overcome geographical boundaries and access new markets, particularly overseas,” Huergas added.

“There is definitely room for growth in e-commerce in the Philippines and the current data may well be the signal for enterprises to go digital this 2016. This is what our ‘Enterprise Sachet’ model addresses― we afford our entrepreneurs with the same capabilities as larger organizations through IT tools available at affordable, pay-as-you-use packages,” said Huergas.

According to Huergas, enterprises can sign up and pay for IPC’s cloud-based softwares online through major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, AMEX), over-the-counter cash payments via Dragonpay or popular online payment provider Paypal through the portal.

“This is the time to adopt a digital frame of mind. From acquiring business leads to managing our own organizations, online tools have a significant role to play,” Huergas concluded.

Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 Model Specs Price Philippines

Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 gets Updated to Marshmallow! See here:

New features like Doze, Event for Gallery, Updated File Manager, Extended Controls, and Advance Settings....

Oh one of the best changes we have learned is the Game Modes! Supporting Game Tuner, Game Launcher and Game Tools as seen on Samsung Flagships and High end Phones. This let you tweak your games and even non-game apps to use a lower resolution as well as control fps for power optimization and efficiency. Got mine installed via update with Samsung Galaxy App but if the update does not pop out you could try downloading via APK Mirror:

Samsung Game Mode 
Samsung Game Tuner
Samsung Game Launcher
Samsung Game Tools

With Game Tuner, The A Series really leveled up playing games as well as overall performance.
Look what we have here, the new Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 model!


The New Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 now comes in metal and glass construction more like that of Galaxy Note 5 that exudes premium and great built quality while housing a stunning 5.2 Full HD Super AMOLED Display that delivers great color reproduction and contrast for immersive viewing pleasure. Corning Gorilla Glass 4 sheet on front and back protects it from scratches and impact.

Under the hood is a 1.6GHz 64bit Octa-Core Processor Exynos 7580 with Mali-T720 GPU complimented with 2GB RAM and 16GB Internal Storage. We got to tested it out and navigation was fast with applications and gmaes run effortlessly. Antutu Benchmark reached 40K mark which is higher than that of Snapdragon 615 chipsets. Strong performance of its Exynos chipset translated to quality gaming from basic COC to intensive games like NBA 2016. (See Benchmark Below)

Full set of connectivity features such as WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC. Cellular data is handled by LTE or HSPA+ or 3G. It is Dual Sim handset but if you need more storage then you can sacrifice the feature and use the hybrid sim slot as a microSD slot instead.

For its optics, Samsung has made sure you get most from 13MP rear and 5MP front camera with f/1.9 aperture. With big aperture size, low light captures are improved so even in night time outputs turns out great. More light ennters the sensor and so assuring you great exposed pictures and quality grade videos. Optical Image Stabilization also helps in preventing those blurred instances. Here are samples:

Focus Test... Left Picture Focus is set on the Flowers while on the Right Focus is Set on the Framed Picture.
Focus was quite accurate which you can set and capture on an instant focusing on your subject or to say foreground or background. You can achieve a shallow depth of field as your subject is really in focus while everything else is blurred out thanks to its f/1.9 aperture.

Even at Normal capture the outputs turn out good. If you want everything to be in light then HDR feature will give you that showing cloud and building details. Samsung A5 2016 also feature a night mode and actually it is more capable capturing Cityscapes with no glare or lens flare.

Lets move on to colors... On Samsung sAMOLED display colors pop out but here as you can see they turn out as they should be as clearly seen by Red background and Yellow candle on table. We tried shooting with Flash and output was on point with an illuminated IceKing in his blue colors and golden crown.

Now we focus on Selfies and see my facial shot are quite nice with bright background or even in low light conditions. Clearly the aperture size of Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 helps in providing good exposure to the front camera.

Samsung UI is now clean and has intuitive gesture and motion control. You can also customize or play with dedicated themes. Be Productive as it comes with Microsoft Office Suites. Samsung also focus on security and with fingerprint scanner, you have a personalize security for your phones and files unlike lock codes and passwords.

Samsung Galaxy A5 2016 also carries a bigger battery at 2900mAh non-removable battery. It does supports fast charging and so you wont have to wait long to use it. With moderate usage it did last us a day of calls, data, streaming and games. Standby time just cut 1-2% of power.

What we love about the Galaxy A5 2016 is its new metal design accented with chamfers on the sides with strong Gorilla Glass panels which gives it premium feel and solid built.  It also has dependable internal hardware that can handle your basic social media needs as well as play your online games or run intensive games. Not just it looks good but also takes good photos with its 13MP primary camera offering shallow depth of field and great low-light shots. Samsung UI is now simple and clutter free but comes with Microsoft Productivity. You have less standby time as you can charge it fast and use it with better battery life.

IDC Top Predictions Philippine ICT Industry for 2016

IDC Philippines announced today its top predictions for the Philippine ICT industry, which underscores the importance of digital transformation (DX) in driving business growth for both enterprises and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on the 3rd Platform and innovation accelerators to transform them into a digitally-led organization in order to capture value-producing opportunities, pursue new revenue streams, and change the existing business model.

3rd Platform technologies include the 4 pillars of cloud, mobility, Big Data Analytics, and Social, as well as the 6 innovation accelerators of IoT, cognitive computing, robotics, 3D printing, virtual/augmented reality, and next-gen security.

Jubert Alberto, country head, IDC Philippines, says, “Companies in the Philippines that do not start a DX initiative will find themselves struggling to respond to changing market demands and competitive pressures. Digitalization has been heightening industry competition as it paves the way for business process excellence and new monetization and business models. Given increasing industry disruptions brought about by digitalization, it is high time for Philippine enterprises and SMEs to make the move into DX to help them scale up in leadership, omni-experience, information, operating models, and worksource transformation.”

Moreover, Alberto adds, "IT leaders in every Filipino organization must transform the IT organization into a true business transformation engine through IDC's new DX leadership framework, Leading in 3D or 3-Dimensional Leadership. Its goal is to 'Innovate', 'Integrate,' and 'Incorporate' IT within the organization to achieve business-driven objectives." This year, IDC’s top predictions are rebranded as IDC FutureScapes for both technology buyers/CxOs and ICT suppliers.

#1: DX-guided enterprise strategy. By the end of 2019, 80% of enterprise strategies will include a significant DX component.

"Globalization, availability of analytics, and the Internet as an economic engine require nearly every enterprise strategy and significant business change initiative to involve some aspect of 'digital,' whether it is improving customer experience or internal operations or creating digital products and services. DX is leveraging IDC's 3rd Platform — cloud, mobility, Big Data and analytics (BDA), and social business — to improve business agility, effectiveness, and customer satisfaction," says Alon Anthony Rejano, analyst, IDC Philippines.

#2: Authentic experiences. By 2020, 80% of Filipino B2C companies will have created an immersive and authentic omni-experience for customers, partners, and employees. 

Jerome Dominguez, analyst, IDC Philippines, states, "In the past, effective marketing for Filipino enterprises meant investing huge sums of money on traditional media such as print and TV. Today, the continuous digital transformation is changing the way Filipino consumers respond to marketing. Filipino consumers are making more use of social media than they  used to in the past, hence there is a greater need for companies to assess how they market their products and services in the digital space."

#3: Security and risk management. By 2017, 30% of IT organizations will shift their focus to advanced "contain and control" security and away from a perimeter mentality. 

“By 2017, IDC expects traditional Philippine enterprises to be forced to make significant operational changes to adjust to the accelerating disruption in the ICT industry. As Filipino enterprises evolve to an information-led, information-centric business model, the strategic importance of a strong security governance model will be critical as the uptake of 3rd Platform technologies among businesses will widen the attack surface,” says Dominguez.

#4: Government focus on ICT. Digitalization at a national level will continue to be a challenge but significant push will be felt in 2016.

 “Although there are administrative hurdles stalling progress, IDC expects the Filipino government to pursue eGovernment initiatives geared toward digitalizing processes and improving transparency more actively this 2016. This also includes initiatives around Smart City and public WiFi systems in major centers in the country,” says Dominguez.

#5: Enterprise “tingi pack.” By the end of 2016, enterprise “tingi pack” for cloud and IT services will thrive among SMEs. 

“The enterprise tingi pack is going to be common in the consumption of IT products and services. As the demand for cloud and other IT services increases among local SMEs, the pay-as-you-go model will not only help grow the providers’ business but also support SMEs in starting a business using IT tools that are budget-friendly, flexible, and competitive,” says Rejano.

#6: Realign suppliers and partners. By 2020, more than 30% of the IT vendors will not exist as we know them today, requiring a realignment of preferred vendor relationships. 

The new technologies, offerings, business models, competitors, partners, and buyers in the emerging DX economy are putting tremendous pressure on traditional IT suppliers and accelerating some new players to market leadership roles. Over the next several years, we will see nonstop shifts in vendor fortunes, with almost one-third of today's leading suppliers acquired, merged, downsized, or significantly repositioned. “While the traditional IT suppliers are all migrating their offerings and organizations to the 3rd Platform and DX worlds, providing the customers migration paths, the impact is that they may or may not emerge from that transition as market leaders,” says Rejano.

#7: Skills-based marketplaces. By 2016, skills-based virtual coworkers in the Philippines will continue to grow, spurring 3rd Platform usage and further outsourcing opportunities. 

Nicolo Santos, analyst, IDC Philippines, says, "Online freelance jobs are taking off, offering job opportunities to many Filipinos at the comfort of their homes. As of 2015, there are approximately 1.3 million online freelancers in the Philippines, a number considered to be one of the highest in the world. By 2016, there will be an additional 500,000 web-based workers to be employed in different online job platforms, specifically coming from the countryside, according to the Department of Science and Technology (DOST)."

#8: Digitalized brick and mortar stores. By 2020, "brick and mortar" stores will provide retailers with new sources of data to create bigger traction and increase patronization and customer base through digital experiences. 

An effective way by which an eTailer venturing into offline channel can effectively differentiate itself from its competition is through coming up with a digital store strategy of its “brick and mortar” estate to provide a personalized customer experience akin to online.
Digitalizing “brick and mortar” stores does not only entail deployment of cutting-edge technology solutions to improve in-store experience; it also makes way for competitive data gathering. “There is a lot of potential to be realized from analyzing the multiple data sources generated from digitalizing physical stores — information that will allow retailers to both identify and target casual shoppers and, in the process, allow them to better position their products and services to stimulate loyalty to their brand,” adds Dominguez.

#9: AiO cards. By 2019, Filipinos will use all-in-one (AiO) cards more predominantly as DX allows bridges of retail payment methods to become more interconnected. 

"With a flourishing retail industry, IDC believes that payment processes will be evolving significantly quicker than before as digital disruptions continue to come about. Just recently, Manila’s Railway Systems (MRT, LRT 1, and LRT 2) started offering reloadable cards that can be topped up online. This is an auspicious start in the government’s drive to digitalizing payment methods," says Linus Go, analyst, IDC Philippines.

#10: DX adoption in various sectors. DX will start to take off in "non-IT-intensive" industries like agribusiness and resource industries in 2016. 

IDC expects businesses in non-IT-intensive industries such as agriculture, agribusiness, and resource industries to adopt 3rd Platform technologies to bring innovations in their business models and consumption patterns. “The introduction of new information and communication technologies (ICT) in these industries could make these industries more sustainable as it transforms the businesses and drive more organizations to pursue innovation-centric
projects with ICT at their core,” says Rejano.
