The much-anticipated physical COMPUTEX 2022 will begin on May 24 and end on May 27, together with TAITRA’s 2-week COMPUTEX DigitalGo Online Exhibition.
This online expo connects international buyers and exhibitors in a major yearly technology event, breaking down geographic obstacles and limits. The subject of today’s worldwide press conference at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center was Digital Resilience for the Global ICT Industry.
TAITRA Chairman James Huang is joined by Paul Peng, Chairman of the Taipei Computer Association, Barry Lam, Founder and Chairman of Quanta Computer, Dr. Tzi-cker Chiueh, Director General of Delta Research Center, CK Tseng, President of Arm Taiwan, and Ken Sun, General Manager of Microsoft Taiwan, to discuss how the ICT industry can use digital technologies to turn the pandemic’s challenges into opportunities and build a better future.
TAITRA Chairman James Huang stated, “COVID-19 has brought severe impacts on supply chains and reshaped the global economy, urging the global ICT industry to adapt to unexpected challenges. COMPUTEX returns to the showground after the world has faced the pandemic for two years. This year’s show is hybrid and continues its positioning for building global technology ecosystems. COMPUTEX 2022 creates this tech-forward platform to unlock future trends as well as to debut products.”
Paul Peng, Chairman of Taipei Computer Association, said, “Taiwan is the best hub for international companies to expand to the Asia-Pacific region due to its software-hardware integration, the high-tech talent pool, and geographical advantage. Moreover, there are urgent demands on Taiwanese products during the pandemic, which once again proves that we are reliable partners in the global technology sector. Therefore, we welcome friends from all over the world to visit and seek beneficial opportunities for mutual partnerships.”
The Pandemic has accelerated metaverse development and semiconductor innovation; embracing digital transformation is the key to increasing business resilience. Faced with the pandemic’s issues, Barry Lam, Founder, and Chairman of Quanta Computer, believes that demand for mobile computing and cloud computing has grown tremendously in the last two years. More creative technology will be required in the future to generate new application scenarios and a more flexible global supply chain. Additionally, the time to market will be critical to success.
CK Tseng, President of Arm Taiwan, on the other hand, proposed, “The pandemic has highlighted the importance of semiconductors in the tech industry, driving more companies to accelerate their technical innovations via advanced semiconductor technology. We are working with our partners to redefine the future of computing, delivering technology that will address the demands of AI, autonomous systems, cloud computing, the Metaverse, and much more.”
Building digital resilience is the key to sustained growth under the new normal in the ever-changing political and economic backdrop. Dr. Tzi-cker Chiueh, Director of Delta Research Center, uses his own company as an example. He added that businesses will proactively create complete alternatives to their end-to-end business processes and rigorously practice them on a regular basis to guarantee that they can survive foreboding occurrences that disrupt the global economy. In addition, IoT technologies are increasingly being used to improve the resilience of smart manufacturing production lines and smart green building operations.
Raising tech intensity, embracing the cloud, and harnessing the power of data, according to Ken Sun, General Manager of Microsoft Taiwan, will be key in building business and organizational digital resilience as 5G and AIoT technology become more prevalent and enterprises accelerate their digital transformation. According to Sun, the cloud not only provides huge opportunities for accelerating innovation and developing new business models but also helps industries to flourish and prosper in the post-pandemic environment.
The Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 1, will host COMPUTEX 2022 from May 24 to 27, 2022. TAITRA will also host an interactive online exhibition dubbed COMPUTEX DigitalGo at the same time (May 24 to June 6).
