Under the leadership of a Josenian college dean, Cebu IT BPM Organization ( CIB.O ) was conferred with two national distinctions in the month of November alone.
The first one is called the Sapphire for Brilliance Award. It is given by the Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) for CIBO’s “pivotal role for continuously and creatively accentuated the competitive edge of the Philippines IT-BPM Industry.”
The said award was handed over during the IBPAP-Globe Flare Awards 2018 held at the Manila Peninsula Hotel last November 8, at the Manila Peninsula Hotel.
In a separate event, CIB.O was named ICT Council Countryside Development Champion for 2018. It was conferred last November 24 during the National ICT Council of the Philippines (NICP) Summit at the Avenue Convention Center in Naga City.
The recognition is for the organization’s role in “passionately investing time and effort on discovering emerging locations and strategically developing Next Wave Cities.”
CIB.O is the first ICT Council of the Philippines and was founded in 2001. It was formerly called Cebu Educational Development Foundation for Information Technology (CEDFIT).
At present, CICCT Dean Dr. Gregg Victor Gabison of USJ-R serves as its president. The organization which he leads served as the model of success for the growth of the IT/BPM industry outside of Metro Manila according to CIB.O Managing Director Wilfredo T. Sa-a Jr.
CIB.O played a crucial role in transforming Cebu City and also inspiring the Philippine countryside with the creation of more than 80 ICT Councils all over the country. It is a few months older than the Contact Center Association of the Philippines or CCAP and three (3) years older than the IT Business Process Association of the Philippines or IBPAP. Both CCAP and IBPAP are national industry associations.
