The Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) of Taiwan organized the 2019 World System Integrator Conference to be held before the opening of the 2019 Smart City Summit and Expo at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center on March 25 (Monday), marked the first time for Taiwan to hold a conference on the theme of systems integration (SI). The strategic aim of the event is to, under the direction of the government, lead in international cooperation orders for high quality smart city systems integrators, which is intended to establish in Taiwan an international platform for connecting system integrators. The event gathered participants from over 20 countries, including 100 guests from industry, government, academia, and research institutions, and 200 Taiwanese systems integrators, who attended the event to engage in exchange of experiences in smart city development.

At the opening ceremony, IDB Secretary General Pei-Li Chen delivered the opening address, in which she expressed her encouragement and expectations for Taiwanese systems integration and international collaboration. Implementing stronger collaboration in the field of systems integration between Taiwan and other countries, Vivian Huang, the Director General of the International Division (ID) of the Institute for Information Industry, represented Taiwan in the signing of two separate international Memorandums of Understanding: one with Kampol Choksuntasutl, the director of the Thailand IoT Consortium; and one with Dr. Ha Hai Nam, deputy director of the Research Institute of Post and Telecommunications Vietnam (RIPT). These MOUs will enhance mechanisms for cooperation in the field of systems integration between Taiwan and Thailand and Vietnam.

The conference also held keynotes on specific topics: Stan Schneider, Vice Chair of Industrial Internet Consortium, spoke on the System Integration for Industrial IoT Systems with Use Case Examples. And system integrators, including MiTAC Information Technology Corp. and Advantech Co., Ltd., spoke on their experiences and actual cases in the development of smart city applications.

Looking to realize a worldwide consensus on systems integration and understand each country's perspective and needs for systems integration, the conference also invited representatives from Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, and Laos to a forum on the trends in the newest systems integration applications and smart city development. In the end, the main points of the conference centered on consensus on future collaboration: building collaborative mechanisms for multiple participants, industry exchange and matchmaking, and smart database research cooperation.

The System Integration Promotion Alliance (SIPA), the agency responsible for planning the World System Integrator Conference, has received substantial results from the conference. SIPA vowed that the current conference is a starting point to intensifying the promotion of Taiwan as an international systems integration solution provider and establishing a diverse platform for collaboration. This will, in turn, bring Taiwan's quality smart city solutions and systems integrators to the international market and earn international cooperation orders.
