Digital remittances ensure well-being, equitable access for PWDs—WorldRemit


The socio-economic barriers faced by persons with disabilities (PWDs) often result in increased expenses compared to individuals without disabilities.


A 2022 report by UNICEF Philippines estimates that the cost of raising a child with disabilities is 40 to 80% higher than the cost for children without disabilities. This expense becomes especially challenging for households below the poverty line.


“For many Filipino families, remittances hold the key to a better future. As they’re guaranteed to increase the financial and social mobility of a household, they can also augment the additional costs that may come with caring for a family member with a disability or special needs,” said Earl Melivo, Head of Asia Pacific at WorldRemit.


For Leo*, an OFW for 15 years and a father of six, he does his best to work hard for each child. When caring for his eldest daughter who has a learning disability, he mentioned that most of his dedicated remittances goes into her healthcare.


Gumagastos din kami ng malaking halaga para habang lumalaki siya, lumalago din ang bahay, kayang ma-accommodate yung kanyang mga pangangailangan,” he also said.


(We also spend a large amount on necessary improvements at home so her needs are accommodated while they’re growing up.)


Health expenditures were identified as the main source of extra costs in PWD households, amounting to almost three times more than spending in other households. A study by the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS) found that PWD households spend an average of P15,225.66 yearly on healthcare alone.


Other common costs went to education and transportation if the child was enrolled in school. However, in the Philippines where social services and policies for PWDs are severely limited, families like Leo’s may incur even more expenses.


As a result, he makes it a point to constantly send money home for his daughter’s medication, among other expenses. “Dahil medyo mahirap lang kami, hindi na namin siya naparehistro as PWD. Wala kaming benefits na nakukuha. Dito sa probinsya, wala namang budget sa mga ganyan ang LGU namin,” he said.


(We are not well off, so we haven’t had the chance to register her as a PWD. We don’t get any benefits, especially in the province where the local government doesn’t have a fund for PWDs.)


With all the challenges that come with caring for a PWD, Leo values his bond with his family the most. Besides constantly communicating with his wife as they raise their family together, he looks forward to spending time and talking personally with his daughter when he is home.


“Kailangan lang ng kaunting pasensya at maraming pagmamahal (They just need a bit of patience and lots of love),” he said.


Leo also reminded fellow OFW parents of how important their efforts and sacrifices are to their family, and that their PWD children experience better lives because of them.


WorldRemit advocates for financial inclusion to help champion more PWDs and their families.


"We believe that every individual, regardless of their abilities, deserves equal opportunities in life. This starts with more equitable access to essential resources. Since you don’t need to go far and visit physical stores for digital remittances, it’s one of many ways we can innovate our platforms to be more inclusive of PWDs,” Melivo said.


An inclusive society requires a collective effort. WorldRemit continues to stand with PWDs by providing a reliable and accessible way for OFWs to support their loved ones with special needs.

Next-Generation Oracle Exadata X10M Delivers Extreme Scale and Dramatically Improved Price Performance

 Oracle introduced the latest generation of the Oracle Exadata platforms, the X10M, delivering unrivaled performance and availability for all Oracle Database workloads. Starting at the same price as the previous generation, these platforms support higher levels of database consolidation with more capacity and offer dramatically greater value than previous generations. Thousands of organizations, large and small, run their most critical and demanding workloads on Oracle Exadata including the majority of the largest financial, telecom, and retail businesses in the world. 

“Our 12th generation Oracle Exadata X10M continues our strategy to provide customers with extreme scale, performance, and value, and we will make it available everywhere—in the cloud and on-premises,” said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, Mission-Critical Database Technologies, Oracle. “Customers that choose cloud deployments also benefit from running Oracle Autonomous Database, which further lowers costs by delivering true pay-per-use and eliminating database and infrastructure administration.”

Available now in both Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer and Oracle Exadata Database Machine, the new Exadata X10M platforms feature 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors. With up to 3X more cores in database servers and 2X more cores in storage servers compared to the previous generation, Exadata X10M platforms deliver up to 3X higher transaction throughput and up to 3.6X faster analytic queries. Exadata X10M’s high-capacity storage servers can now hold 22 percent more data, while all-flash storage servers now offer 2.4X the capacity of the previous systems. In addition, database servers now support 50 percent higher memory capacity—enabling more databases to run on the same system. 

“AMD EPYC CPUs were designed from the ground up to achieve three key goals—deliver more performance for complex data center workloads, reduce latency with larger, better-designed caches, and increase throughput with more cores per socket. It is ideally suited for mission-critical database workloads,” said Mark Papermaster, executive vice president and chief technology officer, AMD. “Our engineers worked closely with Oracle to ensure the Exadata X10M based on 4th generation AMD EPYC processors, with 96 cores per socket, is a balanced configuration that enables near-linear scalability and improved energy efficiency for database workloads.” 

The combination of improved price performance and more storage and memory capacity enables greater levels of database consolidation and dramatically lowers costs for all database workloads. The greater compute and storage density offered by Exadata X10M platforms also reduce the size of the systems that customers require to meet their needs, lowering data center costs for power, cooling, and floor space, and improving data center sustainability. In addition, with its large scale, simple expandability, and affordable consumption pricing, Exadata Cloud@Customer X10M enables customers to easily deploy incremental development, testing, and production environments without adding servers or systems.

Organizations can scale out their Exadata X10M infrastructure by adding individual database or storage servers, allowing them to tailor their configurations to meet immediate needs and expand them in the future should those needs change. Oracle’s Real Application Clusters technology uniquely enables scaling and planned maintenance while databases are fully online for both mission-critical online transaction processing (OLTP) and data warehouse workloads. 

Cloud automation in enterprise data centers with Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer

Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer is a key component of Oracle’s distributed cloud strategy, offering customers the benefits of cloud with greater control over data residency, locality, and authority. Exadata Cloud@Customer is the only platform that runs both Oracle Autonomous Database and Oracle Exadata Database Service in customer data centers. Autonomous Database automates routine, manual data management tasks including tuning, patching, and provisioning. In addition, Autonomous Database can automatically scale consumption up and down as workloads change, allowing organizations to run them faster when demand increases and reduce resource consumption and costs when demand decreases. With Autonomous Database, customers avoid over-provisioning of resources and only pay for their actual consumption.

Customer and Analyst Quotes

“At PayPal, we understand that microseconds matter, and fast physical I/O is essential for exceptional customer satisfaction. To meet the demands of our large workloads and ensure lightning-fast response times, we have currently chosen to modernize our IT Infrastructure with Oracle Exadata X10M,” said Akash Guha, director of Transaction Processing and Data Services Enterprise Data Platform, PayPal. “With Exadata X10M, we expect to seamlessly handle the immense demands of our operations, delivering outstanding performance, and exceeding the needs of our valued customers. We have trust in our exciting new relationship with Oracle to deliver exceptional results and drive continuous improvement.” 

“Now in its 12th generation, Oracle’s latest release of Exadata points the spotlight at the power of density, and how it has changed what’s possible with commodity infrastructure. Tripling to 96 cores was long unthinkable outside of the world of specialized eight-socket machines. But with Exadata X10M, Oracle has shifted gears to work with AMD which has broken the scaling barrier on standard two-socket units,” said Tony Baer, principal, dbInsight. “Paired with leading-edge capabilities such as RDMA, Oracle customers can continue to be assured that Exadata’s scale and performance will grow with their needs. Running Oracle Database on anything but Exadata fits the definition of insanity: keep running on the same hardware but expecting different results.” 

“Oracle Exadata X10M and Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer X10M maintain the highest degree of identicality across both cloud and on-premises implementations, remarkably even while moving the underlying CPU architecture to AMD EPYC processors,” said Holger Mueller, principal analyst and vice president, Constellation Research. “Now in its 12th generation, Oracle Exadata engineering continues to innovate the hardware and software architecture to deliver more than triple better performance for OLTP and analytics workloads. The combination of higher performance and greater capacity enable customers to consolidate databases and reduce operational costs, while increasing reliability and performance and lowering data center costs—including power and cooling, which help sustainability efforts.”
