MEET THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL
Industry Luminaries to Drive the Telecom Industry in Singapore
At ATiS, we believe that the key to establishing Singapore as a leader in the Telecommunications industry is by being deeply connected to the local government, associated industry bodies, and large and small commercial businesses alike. That’s why we count on our Executive Council, made up of dedicated, talented, and professional experts, to represent Singapore's Telecom industry. Check out the team and let us know what we can do for you.
On behalf of ATiS, we would like to thank Mr Mike Ang and Mr Peter Hum for giving their precious time, relentless effort and many contributions as President and Vice President respectively for the past years. We are very honoured to have the support of Mr Ong Sing Jye as our new Vice President. I am gratified to all Exco members for their trust, support and giving me this opportunity to be elected as the new president of ATiS.
2020 remains to be very challenging and uncertain for Singapore and the rest of the World. Life will never be the same again after Covid-19. The entire world is going through a series of social and economic structural changes. The road to recovery for all countries are going to be very different and painful.
Corona virus has waged an unprecedented biological war on humanity. Many great inventions were created during wartime. Every country is technically at war with this invisible enemy. Likewise we will also witness the birth of many inventions during this period as we all fight back to survive. Survival is the most basic instinct of all mankind.
This pandemic has accelerated the speed of technology developments and adoptions. We see many new mobile applications and tracking devices unleashed in a matter of weeks if not days. All these products and solutions carry information and data that are connected wired or wireless real-time to the cloud or data centre. We see a huge opportunity for the Telecommunications and ICT industries to play a very critical role in shaping the landscape and scaling the business.
Online business has flourished evermore and emerged as the clear winner in this crisis. The underpin infrastructure that supports this winner is none other than the telecommunications and ICT. Despite all the negativities and news of recession, there is still hope for all of us.
IMDA has just announced the award of Singapore’s 5G licenses to the respective service providers. We have embarked into a New Era as we journey into the 5th generation of mobile technology. Telecommunications and ICT will continue to evolve and create many new jobs and business opportunities. We look forward to helping our members and SMEs in creating more opportunities for them to network and evolve.
We will accelerate to connect more subject expertise in Cyber Security, Big Data, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and many more to come. We will reach out to more overseas alliance associations as the world gets more connected. This will further strengthen our value of promoting free trade. Besides helping our business communities, we are also committed in social responsibility by donating some of our sponsorship proceeds to charity organisations from time to time.
As the world we live in today continues to change rapidly, ATiS will also evolve rapidly in 2020.
“Conventional wisdom - the big will eat the small. Today - the fast eats the slow!”
