The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) through the Information and Communications Technology Office (ICT Office) will be holding IT-BPM Career Talks during the DOST’s celebration of the National Science and Technology Week (NSTW) on July 27, 2014 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
The forum will feature an overview and updates on the local and global IT-BPM industry from both the industry and the government’s perspectives. It will also provide the audience a broader view of the IT-BPM sectors in the country. The contact center is well known as a popular and most significant sector of the IT-BPM. However, the industry has been showing growth in its non-voice sectors.
In particular, it will feature key personalities from the different sectors of the IT-BPM industry including the non-voice sectors, particularly Software Development, Game Development, Animation, Healthcare Information Management, and Contact Centers.
It will also hold a discussion on IT-BPM’s widespread development not just in key cities but even in the countryside, testimonials from industry practitioners and a preview of what is to come for Philippine IT-BPM Industry. The forum is targeting an audience composed of students, graduates, young professionals, academic communities, and the private sector.
Through the government’s drive for the Philippines to be the global leader in Information Technology and Business Process Management (IT-BPM) generating direct employment of 1.3M, the ICT Office looks to promote career opportunities within the different sectors of the IT-BPM industry.
