By: - October 22, 2021

At the height of the global health crisis in 2020, we all have witnessed how businesses were forced to suddenly shift in the digital space.

This resulted in a lot of enterprises continuing their operations in a fast-evolving business landscape while being bombarded with an influx of data that comes with the emergence of fast-paced technologies.

Committed to changing the way business is taught in the region, Southwestern University (SWU) PHINMA’S Business School (B-School) launched a forum that gathered industry leaders to discuss insights and changes in the business world.

On their Business Next forum called Big Data and Analytics for Value Creation and Business Insights, SWU PHINMA, in partnership with the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, invited a seasoned IT Professional and digital transformation champion, Aileen Judan – Jiao, president and country general manager of IBM Philippines, to discuss the role of Big Data and Analytics in businesses.
