HP Philippines recently announced plans to invest in Davao City by opening a branch office, BPO outlet and systems applications, and partnering with local schools and universities to integrate HP applications into their curricula. This was disclosed by Ryan Guadalquiver, HP Philippines' Managing Director, after he and his team from Makati presented their portfolio to the Davao City Investment Promotion Office, according to Edge Davao. Guadalquiver shared that HP plans to make a sizeable investment in the city but, did not disclose the actual amount.

Jose Noel Morales, HP Philippines Business Consultant, was cited as saying that the systems and applications that will be used in the curriculum will be compatible with the needs of IT-companies and the academe —which could provide more employment and business opportunities for graduates and for the local business community.

“We will be pushing Windows 8 applications. With this, a more advance application will be introduced and will add up to the phasing of HP products and services,” Guadalquiver said.

The schools identified that could be partners for HP curriculum integration include University of the Philippines Mindanao, University of Southeastern Philippines and University of the Immaculate Conception.
