Convert your PDF to Word documents

If you need to grab elements from a PDF, edit part of its text, or cut down its size, you might try converting it to a Microsoft Word file. For doing that task, PDF to Word is more than just adequate—it's darned impressive. We were kind of amazed at how well even the most complex of PDFs we had access to (an invitation to a snooty art installation opening) were flipped into almost exact facsimiles in Word format. Simply upload a PDF, provide an email address, and your document is on its way to you. Maker NitroPDF has other free PDF tools worth checking out, and paid software to entice you with, but PDF to Word is a webapp that does exactly what it says, no catches or gimmicks.

RP loses ground in global IT competitiveness survey

THE PHILIPPINES continues to enjoy some advantages in terms of information technology (IT) competitiveness but overall it has lost ground in a new global ranking, industry officials yesterday said.

In a briefing, Business Software Alliance director Claro Parlade cited an Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) survey which ranked the country 12th among Asia-Pacific states and 51st globally among 66 economies.

"From the raw scores, we can see that the Philippines did well and was basically pushed down by China and India, but we can also see that there are some areas that we need to work on," Mr. Parlade said.

The survey ranked countries in terms of overall business environment, IT infrastructure, human capital, legal environment, research and development and support for IT development.

The Philippines ranked ahead of Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Pakistan in the Asia Pacific. The top countries the Asia Pacific, meanwhile, were Australia, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, New Zealand, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, India and Thailand.

The Philippines performed lowest in research and development, ranking 61st. The local legal environment, especially for the protection of intellectual property, also scored low at 47th.

"The Philippines needs to address risks and challenges such as bureaucratic red tape, poor infrastructure, unpredictable policies and judicial intervention," the report said.

In terms of human capital, the Philippines was noted to have a shortage of skilled workers in the IT and business process outsourcing sectors.

Low domestic broadband penetration, meanwhile, was described as "lagging... most countries in Asia."
A high 69% piracy rate was also noted as a deterrent.

The country performed well in the area of IT infrastructure, with the survey citing wide mobile penetration.
Mr. Parlade said that the reason for the lower ranking was new methodology adopted by the EIU which gave greater weight to research and development.

But while the drop may have been technical in nature, he said "The country can’t just rely on cheap labor costs... We need to offer something that differentiates the Philippines like innovation." Read the original article here http://www.bworldonline.com/BW092409/content.php?id=003

IT careers ‘rewarding,’ says expert

YOU NEED not be a graduate of a computer course to land a job in the expanding field of information technology (IT), according to a technology career expert.

"IT is an ever-changing field and we should try to erase this misconception of seeing this profession [as being] exclusive to those who understand its jargon, and that it’s boring. It is not always the case," Gina S. Duminy told students at the 7th Philippine Youth Congress in Information Technology at the University of the Philippines in Diliman yesterday.

"It is wrong to generalize that IT professionals are techie gear heads with little interest in anything outside of technology. We also pursue other interests and hobbies," she added.

Ms. Duminy, president of itprosasia.com, an online career resource for technology professionals, explained that the field is a "multifaceted discipline" that is focused in providing business solutions, adding that an ideal IT professional "is somebody who understands business."

Ms. Duminy also outlined career options for future IT professionals, which include business operations, database development and administration, security and compliance, networking design and administration, technical support, and Web development and administration.

Aside from career growth, the field offers a good compensation package. Research firm ZDNet Asia’s "IT Salary Benchmark Philippines" report last year said the country’s top five IT skills received salaries ranging from P495,000 to P600,000 a year on average. These are: application development, desktops/software, web development, database management, and systems administration.

She reminded students to improve on their craft and master at least three competency skills in IT. A student should avoid being a "jack of all trades, master of none."

"This profession entails continuous acquisition of new skills and learning. You have to work hard at it."

She noted that it is sometimes hard to screen fresh graduates applying for a job due to their similar backgrounds. But what makes one stand out from the others are training and skills they acquired in college, she said. Click here to read the complete original article

Cebu academe builds up pool of digital imaging developers

CEBU, Philippines - In its bid to complement the growing interest of the world’s Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry to Cebu, the academe is trying to develop another area of skill expertise in software development through digital imaging.

Gregg Gabison, board member of Cebu Educational Development for Information Technology Inc. (Cedfit) said that Cebu is starting to provide a good pool of digital imaging developers to accommodate the growing demand for this kind of skill.

Digital Imaging, also called as digital photographic imaging technology, is a method of image editing in which a picture is scanned from an original document to digital information in the form of pixels that can be read and manipulated by a computer, and subsequently reformed as a visible image.

Gabison, who is also the dean for College of Computer and Communication Technology at the University of San Jose-Recoletos said that this component of software development is getting more popular now, and Cebu should provide this kind of skill immediately.
