IBPAP saw the wonderful opportunities for the Philippines as a global IT-BPM powerhouse.

The information technology and business process management (IT-BPM) industry is one of the biggest drivers of the Philippine economy today, contributing $16 billion in revenues and 900,000 in employment as of 2013. Instrumental to its tremendous success is the support of its enabling association, the Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP). As a testament to this, IBPAP will be celebrating its 10th year of service to the industry at the International IT-BPM Summit (IIS) to be held on October 13-14 at the Makati Shangri-La.

Emerging soon after the industry showed signs of great potential, IBPAP gathered support from the industry’s stakeholders, including the Philippine government, local and foreign chambers of commerce, and allied industries such as property, telecommunications, and recruitment firms, to nurture the industry’s continued growth.

“IBPAP saw the wonderful opportunities for the Philippines as a global IT-BPM powerhouse. We had the talent, we had the variables working in our favor, and as we can see now, our country is a leading destination for IT-BPM companies,” said IBPAP president and CEO, Jomari Mercado.

The association also plays a pivotal role in sustaining rapid growth of the industry by working to ensure an enduring supply of high-quality labor, supporting service innovation, and providing country visibility.

Celebrating the decade-long service and dedication to the industry, IBPAP, along with its co-presenters Globe Business and PLDT Alpha Enterprise, and other event partners, has organized the sixth annual IIS.
