All Systems Go for the Philippine 3D Printing and Digifab Expo & Conference 2015

Imagine a world where creating a product was as simple as “making” it in your own backyard.
Want chocolate? Print it at home.  Want those cute pumps? Print it at home. Fashion jewelry? A human organ.  A bicycle? A toy action figure?  A 3D printer allows us to practically “make” anything.
3D Printing has been rapidly making waves in the maker community and has been touted to usher in a new age in manufacturing.
And the Philippines better be well and ready for this next industrial revolution. 
Thus, it’s all systems go for the first ever Philippine 3D Printing and Digifab Expo and Conference 2015 on August 7 to 9 at the SMX Taguig at SM Aura.
3D Printers have been present since the 80’s but it has registered  rapid growth as it is now being used in medicine (making prosthetics and even replicas of human organs for surgery), aerospace, car manufacturing, architecture, footwear production, fashion jewelry manufacturing, name it.
Yes, it is the next big thing because it is set to change the way we manufacture things, plus it is cost effective and friendly to the environment. Analyst firm, Canalys  predicts the global market for 3D printers to reach $16.2billion by 2018.

Building a Mobile-First Enterprise: IDC Hosts First Enterprise Mobility Conference in Manila

Manila, May 22, 2015 – To provide enterprises a venue to explore the possibilities of building a mobile-first enterprise, IDC Asia/Pacific (AP) recently hosted the first Enterprise Mobility Conference at the New World Makati Hotel. The event brought together the industries' best solution providers and senior IT executives to create a platform to share the latest mobility developments and how to develop a meaningful, comprehensive mobility strategy that is secure and optimizes the business and its customers.
"With the Philippines being dubbed as the “selfiest” country and Makati as the selfie capital of the world — combined with the continuous growth of smartphones and tablets — the country is a strong hotbed for anything mobile. The rise of mobility among consumers is also being translated into the enterprise arena, converging personal and professional lives on mobile devices," said Jubert Alberto, country lead, IDC Philippines. "We at IDC believe that mobility is the platform in which companies can continuously deliver innovations that differentiate themselves in this highly competitive, hyperconnected world," adds Alberto.
The consumer-driven mobile movement is the catalyst of transforming a traditional desktop-centric enterprise to a highly agile, mobile-first organization. A mobile-first enterprise can expect tangible improvements in the way it interacts with their employees, customers, and partners by raising employee productivity, improving customer relationships and satisfaction, as well as streamlining business processes and operations.
