TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONSPhilippines: The phenomena that are leading the Republic of the Philippines to an all-new, unimaginable, global-level, and into the 1st world.
Business and technology are inherently-linked to one another.

The companies and entrepreneurs who are able to harness the power of foreign consumers, tourism, and micro-investor demand, will soar.
The CIO is the hot-shot professional responsible for a company, venture, or entrepreneurs’ technology-related strategies, development(s), and expansions. The CIO must successfully analyze how a venture, organization, or high-net-worth individual must plan for future advancements and competitive advantages.

A CIO sets the over-all direction for technology through strategic planning and evaluation. He or she provides data, leadership, training, seminars, insights, market trends, planning, oversight, strategic-implementation, and management.

The CIO is also responsible for the coordination and development of information technology activities, ventures, and services, as well as the leadership of the IT team(s). In this capacity, they must also, establish and manage department budgets, evaluating existing and overall information and technology operations, oversee the design and implementation of new applications, and execute changes/upgrades to the existing ones as needed.
In addition, evaluating and procuring new hardware (such as servers, laptops, desktops, CTV cameras, and systems), software, and talent to reach the goals of the organization and/or venture. Oftentimes, review of vendor agreements and contracts; such as hosting and server vendor agreements, are also part of the CIO functions.
Lastly, ISO Certification, International Standardization, Auditing, barcoding, payroll, (ISS) Information Systems Security is another rapidly-growing area of the CIO’s needed expertise; both internal, external, and shrinkage prevention.
As more and more Philippines-based enterprises and individuals find themselves onto an entirely new, multi-national, global, and fast-passed level, they will need to keep up with technology and systems. As need ways to generate revenue increase -such as, new innovations such as POS Systems and On-Line Payment Gateways- so will the methods in which revenue can be lost.
