WSI Introduces World-Leading Solutions to Dominate 2017 IT Philippine Landscape

Together with its top-tier solutions and services, Wordtext Systems Inc., the oldest pure IT distributor in the Philippines, brings to market the technologies that will dominate the year 2017, held last February 17 at the WSI Headquarter in Makati City.

The growing need of every Filipino for high quality and affordable technologies to do business productively and live life conveniently, is what WSI continuously provides to the emerging market. With its 44 brands of software and hardware solutions, WSI works hand-in-hand with channel partners to answer the demand of today’s local businesses and individuals.

Alex Tay, Regional Sales Director, Gemalto Enterprise & Cyber Security BU, talked about the increasingly worrying level and extent of security breaches, and what enterprises and organizations can do about them.

The event highlighted WSI’s top solutions in mobility, data and security and cloud computing technology. WSI showcased solutions in unified communications, virtualization, design & creatives, printing and imaging, business intelligence and analytics, security & back up, and networking.

Benjamin Flores, Pre-Sale Engineer at WSI, discussed the increasing value of secure cross platform solutions, in particular, the Unify OpenScape Mobile.

WSI also officially launched its Tech Lab, a technical laboratory for all the products that WSI carries. This lab will support WSI’s resellers and end users with the consultation and value-added services.

Jabra products, mostly headphones with mic, for business and enterprise use, showcased at the WSI display room.

WSI’s 3D Print and Design Hub, a business center that features the latest design and printing technologies, also exhibited MakerBot Desktop 3D printers, Stratasys industrial 3D printers, HP Workstations and Autodesk. The hub offers 3D design and printing consultation and services.

Leonard Zapa, Value PC MDM, HP Philippines, talked about the modern workstation PC for designers – the HP Z2 Mini.

The HP Z2 Mini is one of many products showcased that evening, which wowed audiences. It’s physical footprint is smaller than most workstation CPU towers, but its specs to price ratio is impressive: it starts out at P70k and pricing goes up as per increasing configuration settings.

For 35 years in the business, WSI is continuously providing solutions that serve clients in the banking and finance, communications, retail, manufacturing, AEC (architecture, engineering & construction), education, healthcare and hospitality sectors.

Herns Hermida, Cloud and Enterprise Business Group Lead, Microsoft Philippines. His discussion about the cloud security endeavors of Microsoft, as well as the added personal security constantly improved but already baked into Windows 10 for consumers, certainly expanded the tech audience’s horizons.

Parting Thoughts from WSI

Joseph Reyes, AVP for Enterprise Division, WSI, addressed the question if the Philippines was ready for cloud computing. Short answer, not yet, since reaping the benefits of the Cloud depends on how good one’s Internet connectivity is, which is not yet that good in the country.
