DigiCon 2018: Be Fearless

When everything is completely digital, what are the rules? What else can we do? What new innovation can we come up with? With so many hacks and cyber attacks, what can we do? What can enterprises do to keep up with the times? Can they keep up with how fast paced technology is?

PLDT Enterprise—the B2B arm of the country’s leading ICT and digital services provider—together with industry-leading enabler of digital business solutions in the Philippines, ePLDT Inc., held its fourth Philippine Digital Convention, showcasing the most transformative technologies that will enable enterprises to become fearless in the face of digital at the Marriott Grand Ballroom on June 21-22.

One of the largest and most recognizable digital conventions in the Philippines, the two-day convention—in partnership with premier global market intelligence provider International Data Corporation (IDC)—brought together over 1,000 C-level executives, business owners, and key decision makers, designed to connect them with both local and international thought leaders and pioneers in technology.

“Digital innovation is at the core of our business transformation at the PLDT Group, given the constantly evolving technology landscape of today. The future of societies and enterprises is anchored on its ability to evolve—and to deal with ever present disruption is to adapt to what’s here, what’s now, and what’s about to come,” said PLDT and Smart EVP and Chief Revenue Officer and ePLDT President and CEO Eric R. Alberto.

Carrying the theme, “Be Fearless,” the 2018 Digicon was an avenue to introduce the PLDT group’s bold new products and innovations at the Digital Expo, headlined by its Cloud Line, SD-WAN, and ePLDT Cyber Security services. Attendees were also given exclusive access to an array of other groundbreaking technology through the Expo, via experiential exhibitions and live demonstrations, such as virtual reality content holograms.

Industry-focused breakout sessions were held on the second day of the convention—through a series of deep-dive workshops conducted by industry mavens and expert analysts, who covered different sectors such as Banking and Financial Services, Public Sector and Local Government Units, Retail, BPO, Transport & Logistics, and IT & Gaming. The discussions zeroed in on digital adoption—from robotics, cloud-enabled connected marketplaces to gamification and the impact of artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies, among others.

The 2018 Philippine Digital Convention is co-sponsored by Cisco, Fiberhome, Globaltronics, Huawei, Samsung, Nokia, Akamai Technologies, Vectras Inc., Polycom, Dell EMC, HP Enterprise, Intel, Palo Alto Networks, Soprano and Telavi. Event exhibitors also include AGS, Commworks, Fujitsu, IP Converge, Logitech and Net Pacific.
