Insights on ICT from Ayala Group Senior Leaders

Jose Rene Gregory “Rene” D. Almendras

Managing Director & Group Head,
Public Affairs, Ayala Corporation

President & CEO, AC Infrastructure Holdings Corporation

“I think ICT is instrumental in paving the way for digital transformation across the Ayala group, where the entire organization is enabled to go beyond relying on its current systems and networks, and now empowered to pursue next generation digital solutions that enhance the way our employees work, collaborate, and serve our stakeholders. By keeping this “next gen” mindset and nurturing our integrated digital ecosystem, we generate greater positive impact, strengthen synergy, and provide longer term added value in everything we do as a group.”

Paolo Maximo “Paolo”

Ayala Corporation

President & CEO, Ayala Healthcare Holdings, Inc.

“Technology is an enabler and differentiator for AC Health. Our Generika pharmacies operate on a proprietary pharmacy platform that supports POS transactions, as well as ordering and inventory management which are critical in day to day operations. At FamilyDoc, we run our clinics with our in-house electronic medical records and clinical system that is very innovative, integrated, and easy to use. Technology will be a key differentiator as we develop the systems, data, and analytics to generate clinical reports and population health insight that can truly improve health outcomes. This includes tools to support medication management and adherence, e-prescriptions and refilling, patient outreach, and community-level health monitoring.”

Ernest L. Cu

President & CEO,
Globe Telecom

“Digital disruption is changing the NOW and future of business. At the very core of this disruption is IT. IT enables businesses like ours to keep up with the changes as well as disrupt ourselves to stay in the game. The advent of mobile apps, AR, and IoT opened up new ways to interact with our customers and rapidly deliver services to them. Moving to digital services and operations allows us to create more opportunities to empower the Filipino digital lifestyle.”

John Philip “JP” S. Orbeta

Managing Director & Group Head, Corporate Resources /
Chief Human Resources Officer
Ayala Corporation

“Exploring synergies across the Ayala group of companies is one of the top priorities identified at the Group Mancom.
ICT is a key enabler to achieve this as many of our initiatives rely heavily on technology to succeed.
We seek to increase collaboration and networking among our companies, including our executives and all employees. We want to gather data from all our businesses and generate meaningful insights from this data that will help us answer burning questions today and define our strategies for the future. We are moving quickly towards the future of work, where more and more we will need technology to maintain or even improve our levels of productivity, while significantly reducing the stress of commuting daily to and from our offices. We need ICT to play a major role to help us think this through in a proactive and meaningful way as we prepare for an increasingly digital world .”
