What a 2017 it had been for HR Tech.
Since my inaugural Singapore HR Tech Market Map in 2017, the landscape has evolved quite a fair bit.
Compared to my 2018 update, there has been a huge gravitation towards employee engagement and analytics.

To those unaware of his story, that may sound like a frivolous statement. But once you gain an understanding of what Conrad had gone through, you’d see that he’s the real deal.
Having succumbed to bankruptcy in the year 2000, Conrad got discharged from bankruptcy seven years later, and today he holds a number of accomplishments to his name–including being a full-time online trader and investor, a trading and investment mentor, a successful entrepreneur, as well as a best-selling author.
Startup ventures are always exciting because they often bring together young, energetic minds and fresh ideas.
However, there are numerous challenges to establishing a new business that would appear daunting even when you have a great business idea. Often the biggest among them is financing your startup.
Funding a new business venture is not easy in any country due to the number of uncertainties involved.
It is painful to watch.
The excel sheet that has held payroll data since the company’s inception decades ago is so bloated that the time taken to open the file could allow one to make a cup of coffee, finish it up and make another.
And that’s just the beginning as it will take at least half a day to process the fifty employees payroll as new rows are created and formulas are pasted.
