Del Rosario said the call is part of the company?s PTCI’s initiative to beef up talent and technology ? through partnerships with prominent software vendors like SAP and Oracle ? into the Philippine market. PTCI is a member of the 110-year-old global Schmidt Electronics Group of Companies (SEGL) and focuses on the software needs of businesses. Among PTCI’s list of services are the implementation of enterprise applications, systems integration (SI), business consulting, staff augmentation, business process outsourcing (BPO), managed IT services and as a value-added distributor and reseller (VAD/VAR) for software and technology vendors. As an OFW himself who has held global IT roles for various companies in Australia, Taiwan, and Singapore, Del Rosario knows the caliber of Filipino IT professionals. He was also once a partner of Price Waterhouse Cooper and also as vice president for DBS Bank and Credit Suisse. He said PTCI does business operations in Metro Manila and other key cities in the country such as Cebu and Davao and is eyeing expansion in other Asean countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Malaysia. “This aligns to the long-term plans of being a global systems integrator of SEGL in which PTCI will be operating in every country SEGL operates,” Del Rosario said. Del Rosario is also the current managing director of Singapore-based IT solutions firm Nityo Infotech, a private partner of the ICT Office of the Department of Science and Technology for the deployment of TV White Space (TVWS) pilot sites in the Philippines. Recently, ICT Office executive director Louis Casambre noted that the deployment of TVWS in the country as “the largest in Asia.” The technology utilizes vacant frequency spectrum originally allocated for TV broadcasters. It provides connectivity that functions similar to Wi-Fi but with signals that are able to travel over water and through thick foliage. ? Tom Noda ]]>
