Stitch tackles the topic of Cloud Computing, which, along with Data Science, has been a buzzword in the Philippines' IT and industry fields in recent years. The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened interest in the two principles, with Data Science being useful for monitoring and forecasting new events, among other aspects, and Cloud Computing being useful for work-from-home arrangements.

Before the pandemic, the company that owns the STI network of schools recognized the promise of both Data Science and Cloud Computing, and how these similar principles would positively contribute to the development of businesses through Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and the country's IT industry. Indeed, they are the first institutions in the Philippines to deliver Data Science-related courses at the college level.

A few years ago, the Tanco Group made strides with the introduction of PhilCare's artificial intelligence-powered HeyPhil software. This gradually became a major factor in the business becoming one of the most successful health maintenance companies in the world.

“It's critical that we merge our companies into one IT foundation, aided by Data Analytics and Cloud Computing, so that we can become more effective in our activities and have the best customer service possible. It has proven to be successful in one of our companies. Stitch Chairman Eusebio H. Tanco said, "Now we look forward to making it work even better so that even more Filipinos will profit from it."
“Now that Stitch is here, we intend to take our current technology-related projects even further to create an environment that empowers even more people in this new age,” he said.

Stitch aims to not only consolidate the Tanco Group's digitization activities, but also to encourage micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) so that they can continue to operate even though the world is hit by pandemics and natural disasters.

Stitch focuses on cloud hosting systems like Amazon Web Services (AWS), a virtual server that helps MSMEs to store and view specific files and programs without having to buy physical equipment. This will enable MSME employees to function securely and remotely when away from their regular workplaces.

SAP consultancy services are also available, including implementation and technical assistance for SAP applications for accounting, inventory, human resources, and other business functions.

“Perhaps one silver side to this pandemic is the importance of assisting one another in getting back to our feet and moving on with our life as entrepreneurs and individuals. BCP is vital for MSMEs, just as it is for us, so we want to provide them with resources to help them accomplish that goal,” said Stitch CEO Jaeger L. Tanco.
