MANILA, Philippines - IBM has marked 75 years of enabling business and societal transformation through innovation in the Philippines.

The company is experiencing increased demand for its solutions and services in high-growth markets in the country, including Davao, Calamba (Laguna), Subic (Zambales) and Clark (Pampanga).

More recently, IBM and the Davao City government signed a first-of-its-kind agreement to help the city scale up its existing Public Safety and Security Command Center to further enhance public safety operations in the city.

The IBM Intelligent Operations Center solutions will create a smart and safe city by applying advanced technologies to existing infrastructure to improve city management and efficiency. 

Today, the company is experiencing increased demand for its solutions and services as businesses and government organizations across the country turn to IT to transform operations and increase global competitiveness.

Business partners

IBM is working with over 400 business partners nationwide to better serve clients across many of the local key growth sectors such as banking, telecommunications and retail.

In the past 75 years, IBM has also been contributing to nation-building through strategic support of government initiatives, a wide spectrum of corporate social responsibility programs, and outreach to small and mid-size businesses.

“IBM’s success has been and will continue to be enabled by transformation through innovation. We will continue to make a positive impact by leveraging on smarter solutions to advance national priorities, collaborate globally to grow our business further and make IBM essential to our clients and stakeholders, here and the world over, 75 years forward. 75 years is not simply a milestone. Rather, it marks an opportunity to heighten IBM’s commitment to the country as the Philippines remain essential to IBM’s growth strategy,” said Mariels Almeda Winhoffer, president and country general manager of IBM Philippines.

Focus country

Currently, IBM has two world-class sales and distribution business offices that look after the domestic market and seven global delivery centers operating in Metro Manila and Cebu that serves over one million client employees in 84 countries across the world, clearly demonstrating that the Philippines is regarded as a country with highly skilled professionals who have the expertise to manage shared services.

The Philippines has been identified as one of IBM Corp.’s 20 focus countries in line with the company’s geographic expansion strategy through which it is building out its presence in the fastest-growing markets in the world.

IBM has also expanded its business and presence beyond Metro Manila in keeping with the country’s continued rapid economic transformation.
