In a virtual media roundtable Friday, IBM Philippines president and country general manager Aileen Judan Jiao said companies will continue to roll out digital transformation initiatives even if coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccines come out.
Jiao added businesses now realize the need for operational scalability and flexibility that can be addressed by investing in digital technology.
Likewise, outlook for investments on artificial intelligence (AI), automation like robotics process automation, and cybersecurity is increasing.
“People will continue to apply AI automation and other exponential technologies to make all their workflows happen in a very intelligent way,” Jiao said.
Filipino executives have also said prioritizing AI is going to happen between now and the next two years, she said.
“They’re also saying they will be permanent changes… They have said that whatever it is we’re doing today it is very unlikely that we’ll go back exactly from we were at before,” she added. (PNA)
