Filipino IT Provider Leverages IBM SmartCloud

IBM SmartCloud Enterprise solution helps the company improve customer satisfaction while reducing costs

Quezon City, August 28, 2012 – IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Integrated Open Source Solutions (iOSS),  a homegrown IT services and solutions provider from the Philippines, has successfully leveraged IBM SmartCloud Enterprise (SCE) to offer superior customer service and expand its market presence. 

Under its current IT infrastructure, iOSS utilized on-premise servers to run testing, development and production processes, as well as to host customer solutions. As more customers engaged its services, iOSS faced a sharp increase in workload, resulting in performance and connectivity issues, requiring a more robust and reliable data center solution. 

“Our current IT infrastructure does not have the network and electrical power reliability of a data center, something which our clients now require.” explained Joe Gene Quesada, President of iOSS.  “We realized that we needed to have a solution for our clients that required 99.9%  server uptime and connectivity across multiple Internet Service Providers, something which our current set up could not provide in a cost effective manner.” 

The multi-tenant IBM SCE public cloud solution has provided iOSS, which specializes in the development of customized and cost-effective solutions with open source tools and technologies, the ability to reduce operating costs, increase system scalability and flexibility, achieve much faster deployment, and provide significantly increased uptime and connectivity. 

“With IBM’s public cloud solution, we can now more efficiently meet our business requirements, without making the significant capital investments required for a data center. By supplementing our IT infrastructure with a flexible and sustainable public cloud solution, we can now offer even more cost-effective solutions to our customers, helping push further adoption of cloud-based services in the Philippines,” said Mr. Quesada. 

To better support its customers and ease the strain on in-house servers, iOSS engaged experts from IBM Global Technology Services to work out a feasible plan to integrate a public cloud solution into its overall IT infrastructure. iOSS chose to implement the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise solution – IBM’s enterprise-class public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering – and signed on for the service under a ‘pay-as-you-go’ service model. IBM SmartCloud Enterprise is built on an agile cloud infrastructure designed to provide access to security-rich, enterprise-class virtual server environments that can be leveraged for development, test and other dynamic workloads.   

“Our solution delivered a secure and scalable hosted IT infrastructure with on-demand access to virtual server and storage resources, making it a perfect fit for iOSS,” said Mariels Almeda Winhoffer, President and Country General Manager, IBM Philippines. “In order to keep up with client demands, the company now runs its test and production workload activities on IBM’s SCE cloud, allowing almost instant deployment, 99.9% server uptime and network connectivity reliability, cost savings, easier IT management and more efficient project quality, a strong business advantage for a company like iOSS.” 

After the implementation, iOSS achieved several benefits almost immediately. By placing its heavy-processing workloads onto the cloud through IBM’s SmartCloud Enterprise solution, the network bandwidth strain on its in-house servers was eased, improving the performance of its services. Their IT department could also now respond with greater agility to workload spikes, and securely deploy applications for its clients from the public cloud. 

In addition, the up-front implementation costs were minimized through the ‘pay-as-you-go’ service model. With virtually unlimited system capacity, iOSS now enjoys greater flexibility when it needs to scale up or down according to evolving client requirements. The SmartCloud Enterprise solution also provided a self-service portal that aids in monitoring and management, which in turn helps to greatly reduce administration time and complexity. 

About iOSS 
Based in the Philippines, iOSS supports companies by providing alternatives to expensive commercial software, catering to specific needs not readily found in the market. iOSS provides analysis, development and implementation of its IT solutions, in addition to network and server administration services and maintenance. Its clientele includes companies in the manufacturing, medical, financial, e-government and non-profit sectors.

Philips Offers Street-Style Inspired Headphones

SHL5605_U4 downtown 13Inspiration comes from everything, in every form. Sometimes, it can come from across the globe, from the streets of New York to Tokyo and Paris. And according to Philips Consumer Lifestyle, the music-loving fashion junkie can get a taste of the world’s most loved urban cultures with the Philips CitiScape headphones collection.
A taste of the concrete jungle
If you’re inspired by urban adventures that only the concrete jungle of New York City can give, Philips promises that the Philips CitiScape Downtownheadphones will allow you to experience NYC wherever you may be. “The Downtown gives just the right touch of the smart-casual street style that New York is known for,” says Franco Flameno, Business Development Manager for Lifestyle Entertainment, Philips Consumer Lifestyle Philippines.
The Downtown comes in a sleek and sophisticated design that you can easily match with free-flowing dresses, jeans or even boots, making these headphones truly quite fashionable. And best of all, says Flameno, the audio quality of the Downtown is what makes it a must-have.
“Finely tuned 40mm drivers deliver clear, natural and balanced sound. That kind of audio quality for its market is hard to top,” he explains. A built-in microphone allows you to switch from your music to your phone calls easily, while its MusicSeal feature allows you to immerse yourself in the city’s sights while keeping the noise away from your music.

SHL5905_U2 UPTOWN2 13

Similarly, the Philips CitiScape Uptown “packs a mean punch with high precision sound,” says Flameno, with memory foam cushions that assure a comfortable fit and long-time listening every time. The Uptown is also equipped with MusicSeal that lets you keep every beat of your music to yourself. Furthermore, the Uptown, inspired by classy and savvy urbanites, sports an anti-tangle cable and air-quilted headband.
Embrace the City of Love
From America to Europe, the CitiScape collection channels romance and chic Parisian fashion with the Philips CitiScape St. Germain. This set of headphones sets itself apart from the collection nicely as they are in-ear headphones inspired by Paris’ boho charm.
Flameno describes the St. Germain as “funky and elegant,” and explains that it is designed to give total comfort while producing soft and natural sound. The St. Germain may not come in full headband headphones form, but it still does a pretty good job of keeping the noise out with its noise isolating ear caps. Pair the St. Germain with casual summer boho outfits such as long loose skirts, crop tops and sassy sandals to represent what Paris is all about.
Hear the gentle beats of Japanese pop culture

Of course, Asian cities can never be bumped off the list of the most influential street cultures, and one of the best examples is Japan. The Land of the Rising Sun comes alive in the Philips CitiScape Shibuya, on-ear headphones that are lightweight, breathable, and inspired from Japanese pop culture. “You can strut in style with these headphones, while blocking out unwanted noise with its auto-fitting noise isolating cushions,” says Flameno.
Walk around wearing the Shibuya while expressing your own personal style, with vintage items, leather jackets, or if you’re feeling bold, dress up like a cosplayer to seal the deal.
With these fashionable yet high quality headphones, Philips is at the forefront of the headphone market as it continues to bring meaningful innovations to improve people’s lives.
