In latest Cloud Readiness Index report, it was revealed that the Philippines climbed four spots to the 10th place, from the 14th place in 2011, on account of its bullish business process outsourcing sector.
Cloud technology is having centralized data storage and remote access to computer resources and services by means of groups of remote servers and server networks. It can be public, private or a combination of both.
According to Bernie Trudel, Chairman of the Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA), the BPO sector is identified as the key contributor mostly because it highly depends on the Cloud for innovation and improvement.
Trudel, who is also the Cisco Asia-Pacific Chief Technology Officer, said another advantage for the country is freedom of information as it is crucial to the progress of the Cloud.
ACCA has dubbed the Philippines as one of the “dedicated improvers”, together with Malaysia, Taiwan, and Thailand.
However, amidst the country’s low scores in government regulations and telecommunication infrastructure aspects of the index, the Philippines has been consistently improving in the cloud readiness parameter.
Japan is the leader of the ranking, and in fact has been on top for three consecutive years now, while Australia, Thailand, and New Zealand climbed four spots.
The index, which is currently on its 3rd installment, evaluates 14 countries against 10 indicators, which include infrastructure and regulatory systems, to see if which one is prepared for Cloud computing adoption.
