Thriving Amid Disruption: Pointwest at Asia Tech Summit 2016

July 26, 2016

Ma. Cristina “Beng” Coronel, President of Pointwest Technologies Corporation and the HIMAP, will speak about thriving amid technology disruption, and be part of a panel in the Asia Tech Summit 2016 this Wednesday, 27 July 2016, with the theme, “Here’s to the Crazy Ones.”

The Summit will present participants with a view on the technological developments that will disrupt how things are done in the coming years. From the way information is consumed to the Internet of Things, to new ways of doing business, the Asia Tech Summit 2016 hopes to help prepare business leaders and other stakeholders for the new normal.

Taking from its own experiences in disruption and feeling the touch of disruptive developments, Ms. Coronel said she will talk about Pointwest’s more-than-a-decade of being “crazy” and making it work. This is what she calls “the Pointwest story and our journey into the future.”

Ms. Coronel will talk about the reason why several senior IT specialists, already in cozy positions in a leading company, decided to strike out on their own at a time of economic uncertainty. She will share how the early years of Pointwest were spent proving the mettle of the company, and how one of its core advocacies today – Public-Private Partnerships – played a key role in the company’s growth.

Part of her talk will be describing how Pointwest continues to meet the challenges of the “Nexus of Forces” or the technology disruptors: Social Media and Networks, Mobile technology, Information and Data Analytics, Data Security, and Cloud Computing, which Gartner identified early in 2010. Seeing how these disruptors are at the core of the ongoing Digital revolution, she hopes to impart to the audience how Pointwest manages to marry its “traditional” business models and new ones through its “Bi-Modal” approach. Ms Coronel will also share why a company with IT as its core DNA went into Healthcare and Business Process Outsourcing.

Presented by Sprout for the Asia CEO Forum, the Asia Tech Summit 2016 will be held at the Manila Mariott Hotel, Pasay City on July 27, 2016, Wednesday from 9AM to 4:30PM. Ms. Coronel’s talk will be on the morning session. You can preview the program here: Asia Tech Summit 2016 Event Program.
