Cloud services provider IP Converge Data Services, Inc. (IPC) has launched the Cloud Community of the Philippines (CloudComPH) to serve as a platform for business and tech enthusiasts who would like to impart their ideas and best practices on cloud computing.
"Because our country is still an emerging market for enterprise Cloud services, we felt that there is a need for a venue where Filipino businessmen, entrepreneurs, and ICT enthusiasts can learn the true benefits of the Cloud from one another and apply these learnings into their respective initiatives. We want the community to be a catalyst for business transformation and growth, leading to economic progress," said Niño Valmonte, Director of Product Management and Marketing at IPC, in a press statement.
Membership can be done through cloud.com.ph. Valmonte said, by joining the community, members can contribute to startups and small businesses to flourish by imparting their knowledge about cloud and ICT.
"Community members are encouraged to evangelise 'non-believers' to try and trust the Cloud, and adopt a Cloud-first mindset; enable entrepreneurs and startups to launch quickly with the right Cloud-based business tools and best practices; and empower businesses to achieve goals and spur swift growth using the Cloud," he added.
The CloudComPH also aims to work with industry and the government to encourage organisations to leverage cloud computing in achieving their goals. "The success of every Filipino business bolsters economic growth and nation-building, resulting in better lives for every Filipino," explained Valmonte.
The portal conducts community engagement both online and face-to-face. General assemblies, training sessions, and seminars are also announced on the platform.
"Whether you are a cloud computing tech expert, or a business person looking to make the digital pivot, we encourage you to become a member of the Cloud Community of the Philippines today, and open doors to growth opportunities, continuing education, and an entire network of new contacts, while contributing to the shaping of ICT in the Philippines," Valmonte concluded.
