Digital transformation has never been more necessary to daily life than it is today. Since the pandemic occurred, businesses have continued to migrate to online platforms, highlighting the ever-growing need for automated information and communication technology (ICT) solutions. For businesses to succeed in this current environment, they need to invest in ICT that will improve communication, privacy and security, and overall connectivity.
Software developers in particular come face to face with new challenges, the most pressing of which is the growing demand for the products they create. Globe Business rises to this challenge by devising suitable solutions that make workflow not only more efficient, but also safer for developers and users who access the programs they create.
Since the pandemic has only accelerated the speed with which organizations are adopting new technologies, the shortcomings of traditional internet connections have come to the forefront. Globe Business addresses these worries through direct, secure connections for busy offices.
“Dedicated connectivity or Direct Internet is a game-changer for growing businesses. Whether you’re in tech, healthcare, education, retail, finance, etc., connectivity is really now a necessity. Most especially for tech companies and software developers who use and develop their own platforms and systems, having a dedicated bandwidth is a top business need,” discusses Nikki Ebrada, Infocomm Marketing Lead of Globe Business MSME Group, during the talk “Reducing Latency For SaaS Through Connectivity and Automation” at the online SOFTCON.ph 2021: RESURGENCE attended by leaders and innovators in the software development industry.
Direct Internet eliminates latency typically experienced in wired broadband connections. Instead of sharing a pipe with other businesses accessing information online, Direct Internet gives a team its own dedicated internet connection that lets users fully utilize their subscribed bandwidth.
Direct Internet eases the pain points software developers encounter with insufficient connections, from the inability to transfer high volumes of data to having multiple users on the internet simultaneously.
Along with reliable and dedicated connectivity, software developers also need efficient and automated methods of responding to business needs as employees continue to work from home. Application programming interfaces, or APIs, enable them to keep businesses connected to both employee and consumer, with no fuss.
These are just a few of the pay-per-use APIs from Globe Labs that developers can use to streamline business interactions.
Globe Labs’ Business Development Manager, Diego Garcia, talked about the business problems solved by automation through Globe Labs APIs at SOFTCON.ph: “Electricity forever changed the way businesses work, and connectivity is the electricity of today. If employees in a remote working environment need connectivity wherever they are, how do we provide this to them? How do we allow businesses to provide for their employees and customers?”
One application of Globe Labs APIs is Load Up, a platform that lets businesses disburse Globe/TM load to thousands of recipients. Globe also eases communication using its own Interactive Voice Engagement Solution (IVES) and M360 to disseminate information and surveys to customers and perform welfare checks on and give announcements to teams.
Globe understands that an organization is never truly secure unless every member of the organization has a good grasp of data privacy. This is why Globe Business offers ADPRIMAS, or Automated Data Privacy Management Solution, which educates employees on principles of data privacy through reports and training materials.
“It assesses the level of competence of everyone, from the management to the security guard because there’s got to be a meeting of the minds between the technical people and the guys who are going to use it. You may be talking from different aspects as far as privacy is concerned. You must be on the same wavelength and understanding,” discussed founding chairman Titus Manuel of the National Association of Data Protection Officers of the Philippines at the 2021 SOFTCON.ph.
ADPRIMAS supports the Data Privacy Team and Human Resources Department through timely information and assistance. The data provided allows the Team and Department to address points for Privacy Compliance and Management improvements. This is made possible through summary reports of assessment results and a marketplace of eLearning Courses (Consultant/Instructor Assisted). They are vital for the needed privacy competence upgrade for every employee in the institution.
Globe Business also boasts of resources to support its partners as they use Globe Business ICT solutions, first through their training-as-a-service (TRaaS) offer. The group also has Globe Business Academy that gives users access to business tools, hacks, and expert advice; and, finally, an exclusive program named Upstart, which rewards MSMEs with exclusive perks and benefits.
When strong connectivity, automation tools, sufficient data privacy knowledge, and access to knowledge and training work hand in hand, businesses are in the best position to thrive amidst rapidly evolving times. Globe Business provides all these for software developers to support organizations in digital adoption.
