Modern businesses have much to gain in keeping up with the latest innovations and breakthroughs of the 21st century. Opportunities abound with the growing digital landscape and its ever-changing demands. Now more than ever, there is a constant pressure to keep up with technology as it continues to become an even bigger part of daily life.
But the coming of the digital revolution does not only bring with it opportunity, but also a myriad of challenges. Businesses now must possess adequate security against cyber-attacks, must address worsening issues like the skills gap, challenges in compliance, keep on top of increasing capital expenses, and so on.
Trends & Technologies, Inc., the country’s foremost local Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Systems Integrator and Business Solutions Provider, aims to provide an answer to such issues with the launch of Trends Managed ICT Services.
Launched on Sept. 15 at Shangri-La at The Fort in Taguig, Trends Managed ICT Services aims to help organizations operate their ICT infrastructures and deliver and maintain a strong security stance through its customizable portfolio, designed to suit the ever-changing needs in the era of swift technological and business transformation. The event was supported by Trends’ Global Business Partners such as McAfee and Beyond Trust, among others.
“There are certain portions of core competencies that may not exist in a certain organization. When it comes to relevance of expertise, costs, employee attrition, response time, Trends Managed ICT Services is going to offload from organizations very important tasks, and these will be handled by professionals,” said Trends & Technologies Holding, Inc. Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Hasan Fard.
“Regardless of how they want to go through their business objectives in this digital transformation, technology is always behind it. And nobody would be able to go towards this migration or this change without embracing technology,” he said.
Trends and Technologies Holding, Inc. Chief Operating Officer (COO) Renan Velonza opened the launch to hundreds of decision-makers and representatives from various industries such as banking, government, manufacturing, retail, hospitality, and media.
Industry Principal for Cyber Security Practice for Asia Pacific from Frost & Sullivan Charles Lim shed light on the current Managed Services landscape in Asia Pacific. Chief Information Officer and Vice President of IT of Energy Development Corporation Ferdinand Poblete and Head of Engineering and Managed Services of SkyCable Jamie Lopez both shared their journey towards Managed Services. The segment talks were concluded by a panel discussion from all the speakers, led by McAfee Director of Managed Security Service Provider & Strategic Go-To-Market for Asia Pacific Joel Camissar.

With a proven record on working with people, processes, and tech, Trends Managed ICT Services can address the kind of issues that businesses might otherwise struggle with.
