Technology for the Masses

I am starting personal advocacy movement which I call "Practical and Affordable Technology for the Filipino Masses".

It's a free service (consultancy, training and setup) centered on schools, foundations, organizations and small to medium-sized enterprises. The main goal here is to deliver a more focused, practical technology solutions on a shoestring budget.

What specific services can I deliver?

Much of the services I can share were all founded on my experience as Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of our company. Adopting and compiling all the best practices that will surely bring down IT spending while at the same, hitting your organization's bottom-lines. The service are as follows:

  • Migration, setup and training of your corporate email, calendar, online document management, instant messaging, and corporate intranet on a single-sign-on service.

  • Setup and manage your corporate servers for webhosting, database, file-sharing, and security.

  • Maximizing PC utilization by splitting to multiple PC workstations. No additional hardware 'splitters' or software licenses needed.

  • IT Service Management (ITSM) Implementation.

  • Establishing a System of Policies and Procedures for your IT Department.

  • Document and Record Control (for ISO preparedness)

  • a hassle-free and straight forward approach to IT Service Request Management.

Is it really free?

All my services are free but there may be other dependent services that aren't. An example of such is webhosting or DNS services which requires some reasonable fees to be paid. In most cases, all other dependent services that I include in my services are free or may require small fees to be paid to other third-party service providers.

Who can avail of my services?

Anyone who wants to cut back on IT spending or organizations that want to deliver more for less can apply. No hidden charges, no fees, no special favors – nada!

Schools, church groups, foundations and other civic organizations will be given high priority. For organizations or companies outside Cebu wishing to avail of my services, all incidental expenses will have to be covered by them since I have two kids I put in school and don't have that ready cash to donate.

Am I hiring people for help?

No. But I would definitely need people who share the same values I have and volunteer to help me. Any small amount of help will be of great value to me most specially to people who would need it the most.
