MDI has become a trusted digital partner of state agencies and telecoms and banking enterprises

Combining more than 30 years of innovation and an unrivalled understanding of the Philippines’ technology landscape, MDI has helped corporations and government institutions achieve their digital transformation goals in the face of rapid digitalisation. The information technology (IT) solutions provider and strategic consultancy firm has built robust competencies in the areas of infrastructure, cloud computing, software development and IT operations (or DevOps), big data analytics, managed services, application programming interface or API economy models, and next-generation internet security.

“As we enter our next 30 years, we’ll continue to push the envelope on how digital solutions can transform organisations and help realise their growth potential,” says Myla Villanueva, managing director. “We do this by enabling our clients to leverage both digital and physical assets with brand aspirations to create powerful customer experiences.”

Starting as a systems integrator in 1988, MDI has become the trusted digital transformation partner of government agencies and leading enterprises in the telecommunications and banking sectors. It has built a strong customer base that includes Globe Telecom, PLDT-Smart Communications, UnionBank, LANDBANK, Philippine Clearing House, PhilHealth and Ayala Land. MDI has also played a key role in guiding organisations towards innovative business models and building road maps for technology investments.

Drawing on the strengths of its reliable pool of experts, MDI keeps up with global trends through strategic partnerships with the world’s technology leaders, including Dell, HP, VMWare, IBM, Google Apigee, AWS, Talend, Cloudera and Red Hat. MDI has spearheaded many firsts in the local IT industry. These include the first nationwide internet protocol-based networks in the 1980s, the first mobile application value-added services, the first broadband wireless telecoms company in the late 1990s, and the first managed private clouds and fully digital bank branches today.

“I have never seen a clip of change in technology faster than what we see today,” Villanueva says. “We intend to work with our clients as partners to ensure that they stay ahead and harness the power of these new technologies as we’ve done consistently through the years.”
