Led by its Globe Business unit, the Enterprise Innovation Forum will focus on how innovation and technology synergize with business strategies to address customer needs and operational demands to lower costs, improve processes and increase productivity. It also aims to provide insights on how to future-proof enterprises and help them stay ahead of competition.

The keynote speaker for the Enterprise Innovation Forum is Innosight Ventures Managing Director Scott D. Anthony, who has written three books on innovation, the latest being The Silver Lining: An Innovation Playbook for Uncertain Times. He has worked with Fortune 500 and start-up companies in industries such as media, consumer products, investment banking and software, among others. He is also a faculty member of the Leadership, Innovation and Growth Program at GE Crotonville, and a member of the Board of Director of Media General.

Also, the Enterprise Innovation Forum gathers members of the ICT industry and global companies in one event to share their knowledge and expertise as session speakers, fostering collaborative learning through various tracks: Mobility, connectivity, IT integration and security. There will also be discussions on industry perspectives and enterprise-class technologies. To highlight current and emerging solutions for the growing ICT needs of enterprise customers, Globe Business invited speakers from Avaya, Cisco, EMC, Fujitsu, Hitachi, IBM, MEF, Microsoft, NCS, Nokia, RIM, Riverbed, Sandz, Tata Communications, Tellabs and SingTel to give talks on different relevant topics that would help enterprises leverage innovation and technology to improve their market position.

“ In Globe Business, we engage enterprise customers in various ways relevant to them. We know that innovation is critical to move the business ahead and by holding this forum we hope to provide them with the most up-to-date information and tried and tested solutions from around the world. This will not only offer them insights of the latest technology trends but also help them make crucial decisions for the future. This is how we value our customers as we remain committed and responsive to their present and impending ICT needs,” said Jesus C. Romero, Head of Enterprise Segments at Globe Business.
