Yearly Theme 2023 (Technology | Business | Personal)

It’s Monday 2nd of January 2023, the start of a brand week in a fresh New Year 2023,. Looking back at Year 2022, it was a mixed bag of an onward journey, results and outcomes, filled with its fair share of ups and downs. As the world economy reopens in 2022, reopening their borders and lifting of risk management measures, it’s a much awaited return that the world desires, the route to recovery was gradual as we return back to a more normal lifestyle.    

Inspired by Fernando GrosHow to choose a Yearly Theme”, this is my 4th year writing and announcing a Yearly Theme, an approach that I personally feel that it’s more forward looking for a new future, a new era of working, thinking and how we connect as an individual, as a collective, society and the world. It’s not that goal settings or setting resolutions are no longer popular or useful, they still have a purpose and it still works for some people or industries

Recap of previous Yearly Themes

Before I announce my Yearly Theme 2023 for my technology, business and personal, let me bring you back into my previous Yearly Themes through a recap below:

Yearly Theme 2023 (Technology | Business | Personal) – “Transform”

Now let me introduce and announce my Yearly Theme 2023 for Technology, Business and Personal – “Transform”.

Why “Transform”?

This word “Transform” was chosen for its connection to a 15 years milestone for my TGH Technology and Business website, how can I can change, transform and improve, from my media news coverage, business and technology analysis, social media marketing/digital marketing and as a writer?

15 Years of TGH Technology and Business Portal/Blog

My TGH Technology and Business Portal/Blog is marking and celebrating a 15 years milestone in Year 2023. How has my website and writing transformed over the past 15 years and how am I going to transform my website and writing moving forward? There are probably more questions than answers right now. The answers might appear when I do more in-depth and write more, on both professional and personal basis.

In an upcoming article, I would share more thoughts and feelings behind my 15 years (and still counting) journey, that brought me a lot more than what I could have asked and planned for.

 

Technology and Business Media News Coverage

How am I gong to transform in how I cover technology and business media news coverage? With more in-depth interviews and thoughts? Should I cover and build up more enterprise/B2B technology media news?

Key technology topics and trends that I am looking to cover more in this year 2023 – Impacts of AI technology, Digital Transformation, B2B technology for SMB, Future of Work, Future Cities, Sustainability, Fin-Tech, Blockchain, NFT and Web 3.0.

Writing and Thought Leadership

I am spending more time writing on topics of heavier load nature, as well as sharing more about thought leadership in the business and technology sectors. How can I improve and transform my technology, business and personal writing onto another higher level of thought leadership, thinking and writing?

My personal writing on a technology and business content heavy website, gives another different perspective and dimension to my articles writing. I am still constantly honing and improving my writing and craft. A personal voice in thought leadership topics, we need to see more these from writers around the world.

New set of Uncertainties and Dark Clouds in 2023

How can I transform, change and adapt in a year of new set of uncertainties in 2023? What are the uncertainties that world economy might be facing in this year? Could the economic and political situations turn for the worst in 2023? We are facing inflation, higher costs of living, economic slowdown (or even possibly world recession) and geo-political worldwide crisis in a worst worst case scenario.

In a period of uncertainties and political crisis in some regions (hopefully it doesn’t escalate beyond that stage into bigger crisis), there might be new opportunities. Time to explore other opportunities as a new set of dark clouds (challenges and uncertainties) looms over 2023.

Yearly Theme 2023 (Photography and Travel)

In this year 2023, I decide to try something different again, I chose two themes, one for my TGH  Technology and Business Portal/Blog, one for my TGH Photography and Travel Portal/Blog. What did I choose for my Yearly Theme 2023 (Photography and Travel)?

Join me in my “Transform” adventures in 2023

I would like to invite all of you, come join me in my transformation exploration in my technology, business and writer journeys in 2023.

Together we can and we might discover something common to work on, advocate together and transform the way we work and live, and on special themes that we can push for more awareness and publicity.

Dell Technologies Forum 2022 in Singapore – New SG and APJ findings on Digital Transformation

Dell Technologies Forum 2022 in Singapore was held recently on 13th September 2022. This would be a technology conference/forum that I would like to attend however I wasn’t able to attend due to a clash of appointment/business commitments for that day. One of the key updates was on Dell research findings on digital transformation and change for Singapore (SG) and Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ).

On the subject of digital transformation / digital change, this has been one of my areas of interest over the past few years. When I read the Dell Technologies Forum Singapore 2022 – New SG and APJ findings on Digital Transformation, it was interesting, an eye opener and concern on the digital transformation journey in Singapore, and how the future of work is evolving right here in SG.

None of us can forget what the global pandemic that started in 2020 inflicted on the entire world, from personal living and how we work, the massive changes and impacts on our work, living, personal and mental well-being. Digital transformation over the past two years could be said to be accelerated beyond any precedent in the business and technology worlds.

Dell research on digital transformation in SG

What does Dell research on new SG and APJ findings on digital transformation speaks about our current state of digital transformation progress in SG?

Before we dive more into this, here are the key findings for Singapore:

  • In Singapore, 96% (APJ: 90%) of business leaders regard their people as their greatest asset
  • However, 75% (APJ: 67%) believe their organisations underestimate the people requirements when planning transformation programmes
  • Nearly 80% (APJ: 77%) of all Singapore employees also say their business needs to provide the necessary tools and infrastructure to work flexibly, in a way that suits everyone

After 2 years of accelerated digital transformation, 65% of IT leaders in Singapore (APJ: 45%) say their organisations do not know what it takes to digitally transform a workforce, with many employees now facing challenges in keeping up the pace according to a new Dell Technologies survey. 75% (APJ: 67%) of those surveyed in Singapore believe their organisations underestimate how to engage with their people properly when planning transformation programmes.

What do those Dell research results highlight?

The results from Dell research highlight how the recent period of accelerated digital transformation is leaving businesses and their workforce in need of time to recharge, reflect, and refine before embarking on new or iterating projects.

Even though there have been accelerated progress and efforts from the past few years, this research highlights how there is a potential for transformation to stall as 75% of respondents in Singapore believe it is their people’s resistance to change that can lead to failure.

Nearly 80% of Singapore respondents (APJ: 62%) fear they will be shut out of the evolving digital world due to a lack of people with the right authority or vision to capitalise on the opportunity – this is when an as-a-Service model becomes a favourable option for many businesses.

“To build a better future that works for all, we need to recognise that business success and employees’ wellbeing are inextricably linked. Our latest research highlights that sustainable digital transformation happens at the intersection of people and technology. To achieve an effective breakthrough, organisations should consider a three-pronged approach. First, provide employees with consistent and secure work experiences, not defined by where they work. Second, help drive productivity by augmenting human capabilities with technology tools to allow employees to focus on what they do best. Lastly, inspire employees through an empathetic culture and authentic leadership,” said Amit Midha, President, Asia Pacific & Japan, and Global Digital Cities, Dell Technologies.

“The future of work has shifted and will continue to evolve as teams and individuals find a process that works for them. The foundation of successful hybrid work models will involve personalised, consistent, disruption-free experiences, and will rely on a human-centric IT strategy. In Singapore, hybrid work options are now a top requirement for employees. People need easy access to the right tools to get the job done, whenever and wherever they are working. Companies should ensure the necessary tools and infrastructure are in place to empower their employees in achieving success,” said Andy Sim, Vice President and Managing Director, Singapore, Dell Technologies.

The time is now for organisations to take stock before embarking upon new digital transformation projects, ensuring their workforce is supported and has clarity on the next stage of implementation.

Readiness for Digital Change Benchmarks

Dell and independent behavioural experts studied survey respondents’ appetite for digital change and found that only 5% of the workforce in Singapore – from senior business leaders to IT decision makers and staff – are pursuing modernisation projects. Further more, around 50% of those surveyed are slow or reluctant to embrace change.

Here is the table of how the Singapore workforce is comprised today:

Breakthrough benchmark

1) Sprint: Will chase innovation and trailblazer technological change

5% (APJ: 7%)

2) Steady: Poised to adopt technological change, selected by others

35.5% (APJ: 41%)

3) Slow: Inclined to hold back and observe / deliberate

53% (APJ: 46%)

4) Still: Tend to anticipate problems and resist proposed technology innovations based on perceived risk

6.5% (APJ: 6%)

Future of Digital Transformation and Digital Change

What is the future of digital transformation and digital change like? This study charts a path forward with signposts opportunities for businesses to focus and keep pace with transformation, with breakthrough happening at the intersection of people and technology along three frontiers:

1. Connectivity

During the pandemic, businesses performed tremendous feats to connect, collaborate, and conduct business online during this period. However, this is not the end, they are not finished.

Nearly 80% of respondents say they need organisations to provide the necessary tools and infrastructure to work anywhere (along with autonomy to choose their preferred working pattern). In fact, the respondents worry that their people might be left behind because they do not have the right technology to shift to a highly distributed model (where work and compute are not tied to a central place but occur everywhere).

Technology alone is not sufficient. Businesses also need to make work equitable for people with different needs, interests, and responsibilities, including the 79% of Singapore employees that would like their organisation to do any of the following:

  • 39% (APJ: 46%) want organisations to clearly define their ongoing commitment to flexible work arrangements and the practicalities of making it work
  • 36% (APJ: 45%) would like to see organisations better equip leaders to effectively and equitably manage remote teams
  • 36% (APJ: 47%) want organisations to empower employees to choose their preferred working pattern and provide the necessary tools / infrastructure

2. Productivity

Time is limited for everyone, and there are now too few qualified candidates for open roles. In order to address all these strains, businesses can delegate repetitive tasks to automated processes and free-up people to focus on enriching, higher-value work.

At the present moment, only 38% say their work is stimulating and not repetitive. With the opportunity to automate more repetitive tasks, close to 7 in 10 respondents would look forward to learning new, sought-after skills and technologies, like leadership skills, courses in machine learning, or focusing on more strategic opportunities to elevate their role.

However, for businesses with limited budgets, they are concerned that they will not be able to advance their workforce and compete.

3. Empathy

Beyond hardware and technology, it is at the heart where businesses must build a culture, modelled by empathetic leaders, that treats people as their greatest source of creativity and value.

This Dell research shows that there is still work to do and empathy has to inform decision making – from simplifying technology for approximately half of Singapore employees who often feel overwhelmed by complex technologies, to tailoring change programmes to individuals’ skills.

Research Methodology

The fieldwork was conducted by market research company, Vanson Bourne, from August to October 2021, across 40+ locations from all regions around the world.

Base: Dell Technologies conducted a survey with 10,500 senior business decision-makers, IT decision-makers and knowledge workers (employees involved in digital transformation) across 40+ countries.

In Asia Pacific & Japan (APJ), there were 2,900 respondents across 11 locations that were surveyed. The locations in APJ include Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.

In Singapore, there were 200 respondents that were surveyed.

As part of its ongoing CSR commitments, SS&C Blue Prism had pledged to donate £25 (S$36) for each in-person attendee and £5 (S$7) for each virtual attendee to the International Rescue Committee.

Personal key takeaways, thoughts and views from Blue Prism World APAC 2022 in Singapore

Attending Blue Prism World APAC 2022 was a good experience for me, learning more about RPA and IA, in a modern era of work, digital transformation and a new future of work dawning upon us.  This was also one of my first few B2B / Enterprise technology events that I attended in-person  as safe management measures were gradually eased since the global pandemic situation that disrupted our work and living over the past two and a half years.

The sharing sessions from the panel discussions by various business organisations across different industries gave insights into how things had transformed for their organisation with RPA and IA.

Beyond the business and technology sharing sessions, there was a particular session by a speaker, Ms. Wong Su-Yen on “Transforming to Win in Future of Work”, that left a deep impression on me. The Future is Now – 4 things to do:

  • Challenge assumptions
  • Learn, Unlearn, Relearn
  • Stay the Course
  • Dare to Try

Her amazing sharing and experiences would definitely left some lasting impacts and impressions to the attendees in both physical and virtual attendance, as SS&C Blue Prism 2022 APAC in Singapore navigates and leads the digital transformation journey through RPA and IA for businesses.

Coming from a small business owner perspective (as a sole-proprietorship business owner in photography services), being tech savvy and understanding technology are not enough, how would RPA and IA help me in my particular business sector? As well as a digital marketer and content creator role in a digital agency setup?

Coming from a technology writer/editor (in both consumer and enterprise sectors) and content creator/digital marketer perspective, with working experiences from various industries, from hospitality operations to financial advisory services, to a few years of experiences working in small and medium business (SMB) sector. Digital transformation had been on my radar in recent years as I started to cover on enterprise/business sectors, not just from Singapore’s economic push and quest in digital transformation, also from my own personal business operations experience in an SMB that continues my coverage of enterprise/B2B technology developments and macro level economic and business news in Singapore and around the world.

My personal opinions are that the SMB sectors in Singapore are still not fully onboard the digital transformation journey, not only are they underserved by technology providers, they also don’t have the necessary and adequate trained technology people to lead the digital transformation change.

Digital transformation via RPA and IA is an area that I feel would greatly help SMB sectors in their digital transformation journey. This would be an area that I hope to explore and share further down the road.
