The IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) is staging in November at the Marriott Grand Ballroom in Pasay City the 11th International Innovation Summit (IIS) with the theme, “Next PHase: Leading the Charge, Withstanding Headwinds, and Driving the Future of IT-BPM Today.”

IBPAP, which annually organizes the Summit for important discussions on current industry trends, issues, and forecasts, said this year’s IIS will emphasize the strength and experience of the Philippines as a leader in the IT-BPM global space.

“While it continues to face challenges both locally and internationally, the Philippine IT and Business Process Management (IT-BPM) industry will continue to move forward and the Philippines will remain as one of the top investment destinations for IT-BPM services in the global marketplace, providing quality jobs to millions of Filipinos,” IBPAP said in a statement sent to THEPHILBIZNEWS.

The Summit is curated into three tracks that are essential for the next phase of the Philippine IT-BPM, beginning with the country and policy arena where the aim is to further strengthen the industry and remain relevant in the global marketplace.

Covering this track is “It’s An Asian World: How developing countries can keep up with the Asian takeover,” which delves deep into the Asian economic landscape.

“The IIS discusses why countries like the Philippines can learn from its neighbors to keep up with this global movement, attracting business and ensuring mutual growth in the region, and how to address inequalities and environmental stresses on the national and international level,” the IBPAP said.

The second track is human capital which ensures that the industry brings its most valuable asset, the Filipino talent, to the next level of innovation.

Zeroing in on the track of human capital is “The Missing Link: Establishing lifelong learning and employability” in which the Summit aims to discuss the pain points of the academe and how it can be addressed, as well as how the future and existing talent pool can achieve lifelong employability.

Finally, the deep tech track sees how to encompass the innovation that is happening in the present, and if the Philippine IT-BPM industry is future-ready.

Centering on the track of deep tech is “Demystifying Digital Transformation.” The IIS talks about the secret to reinventing success, how businesses can continuously innovate to achieve maximum growth and productivity, and how else digital transformation can propel businesses and the IT-BPM industry forward.

IBPAP is organizing this year’s Summit with the support of its sub-sectors, the Animation Council of the Philippines (ACPI), Contact Center Association of the Philippines (CCAP), Game Developers Association of the Philippines (GDAP), Global In-house Center Council of the Philippines (GICC), Healthcare Information Management Association of the Philippines (HIMAP), and Philippines Software Industry Association (PSIA).

In addition to the crucial topics, the recalibration of the Philippine IT-BPM Roadmap 2022 figures will be presented during the Summit. Members of the academe, business sector, and most especially the government, are invited to the 11th ISS set on November 12. For more information, go to iis.com.ph.
