Acer’s TECHonomy 2017

Couple of months ago, I had the opportunity to attend Acer Techonomy Forum on boosting Cebu’s economic potential through technology and learn more about Acer‘s latest innovations in technology and their programs that support many Filipino students as well as universities, government agencies and private corporations on their quest for a more advanced facility.

The forum completely had me with its leading edge when it comes to gaming technology. “Predator”, the anti – hero, just keeps on getting better and better for hard core gamers. Launched on June 2016 here in the Philippines, it immediately became the fastest growing gaming brand in the country as it introduced gaming behemoths like we’ve never seen before.

About Acer 

Founded in 1976, today, Acer is one of the world’s top ICT companies and has a presence in over 160 countries. As Acer looks into the future, it is focused on enabling a world where hardware, software and services will infuse with one another to open up new possibilities for consumers and businesses alike. From service-oriented technologies to the Internet of Things to gaming and virtual reality, Acer’s 7,000+ employees are dedicated to the research, design, marketing, sale, and support of products and solutions that break barriers between people and technology.

TECHonomy Forum

 Technology adoption and transformation plays a vital role in boosting the competitiveness of local businesses and industries particularly the burgeoning Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises sector. This is the clear message of Acer Philippines’ TECHonomy Forum, currently in Cebu for its second stop after a successful launch in Manila recently.

The three wonderful speakers who made the round table discussion successful are:

Carren Garcia, Senior Commercial Sales Manager | Acer Philippines

Gibson Lin, Global Chief Trainer | Acer Cloud Technology

JB Aquino, Marcomms Lead for Consumer Business | Acer Philippines

TECHonomy Forum aims to support Cebu’s thriving economy by offering a value-adding thought leadership platform. Here, local businesses and stakeholders can exchange knowledge and ideas on the benefits of digital transformation and innovation.

The Great Equalizer

In TECHonomy, thought leaders and industry thinkers from different sectors converge to champion digital transformation to Cebu’s businesses. Acer believes having this platform supports broader efforts and initiatives to make the Philippines become more tech-advanced and globally competitive.

With the looming adoption of automation and data sciences as an industry standard in the coming years, digital transformation has become an urgent necessity for businesses.

Acer Philippines underscored its commitment to help Cebu CEOs and entrepreneurs through TECHonomy in overcoming the challenges of innovation and technology adoption.

Hosted by Acer Philippines and Microsoft Philippines, the TECHonomy Forum 2017 is the first forum of its kind in the country that tackles the role of technology in economics.

The Cebu leg of this event was supported by When in Manila and Big Picture Productions.
