(The Philippine Star) - November 7, 2012 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines - The Provincial Board is supporting the call for the academe to strengthen its Information Technology (IT) programs especially in mobile and web applications in order for Cebu to produce more world class software developers.

PB Member Sun Shimura reiterated the call thru a resolution requesting all state colleges and universities including private tertiary educational institutions in Cebu to strengthen their IT program particularly on mobile and web applications. The resolution was passed last Monday.

Winston Damarillo, a successful global technology entrepreneur who is   helping Filipinos succeed in the international technology field, earlier said that Cebu is seen to leverage in both mobile and web applications and that talents should be given support, encourage them to introduce their brilliant ideas to the commercial market.

Shimura quoted Damarillo as saying that “most of the good talents are being taken advantage of by multi-national companies.”

“Private and public educational institutions offering IT programs are indispensable entities in the attainment of the desired goal to be more competitive in the software development dimension in technology,” Shimura said.

Shimura added that collaborative efforts and constant support to software developers and engineers must always be given appropriate attention.

Damarillo together with other successful Filipino global technology entrepreneurs, non-profit group Philippine Development Foundation (PhilDev) and the Developers Connect Philippines (DevCon), conceptualized the “Hack-to-Hatch” program to jump start the discovery of technology inventors in the Philippines.

He said the program has intensified its presence in Cebu to identify the good talents here whose concepts and brilliant innovations have huge potential for the world’s commercial landscape.

Damarillo believes that the Philippines is ready to compete in the software development dimension in technology. It just needs to strengthen its support to start-up software developers and engineers.—(FREEMAN)
