The Philipines

George Kintanar, President, Chief Information Officers Forum Inc., a non-for-profit organisation of GCIOs that is driving a proposal for a nationwide data center suggests it would cut spending, currently PHP 8 billion (US$182 million) in half. The idea would be to phase in shared services “slowly but surely,” starting with GIS as a service, he said. “Following a model similar to Singapore’s One Map project, which provides an online base map for all government agencies, the Philippines ‘One Nation One Map’ ( would be used by 23 agencies already committed to the project.”

The most likely first use of cloud computing in The Phillipines? GIS for tax mappers says Lilia Guillermo, Deputy Commissioner and CIO of the Philippines’ Bureau of Internal Revenue. “I want a tool that can show tax agents the location of point of sale machines, so we can better map areas of high business activity.”
