The Singapore Press Club partnered with Apptio to organise a Lunch-and Learn session for media in Singapore with a session on Tech Trend on 18 November 2022.

Tightening of monetary policy to manage rising inflation in the region poses a risk of economic slowdown.

The region is likely to experience a lower ICT spending growth in months to come as a result of weakening of local currencies against the US dollar.

Tech spending is black-box and existing systems are too slow to provide real-time information and decisions are made on guestimates. Organizations need a way to connect technology investments to business value.

In other words, organizations need to consider how they can translate the things that money is spent on – cloud bills, data centre investments, 3rd party software, and developers – to outcomes that the business cares about.

With the aim to improve the depth and accuracy of Business Tech reporting in Singapore, Mr. Tarun Kumar Kalra, Regional Vice President – Asia, Apptio shared with journalists about tech trends and how enterprises manage the business of technology through Technology Business Management (TBM) and how FinOps enable them to realize the full business value of the cloud.

The two-hour session was held from 12pm to 2pm with a simple lunch served prior to the presentation and Q&A session.  

Encouraged by the positive feedback received from the attending media, Mr. Tarun Kumar said, “Sharing information and data of Tech trends with the media helps us build positive relationships for the long term.”

We welcome our Singapore Press Club members and journalists in Singapore interested to participate in future Lunch-and-Learn sessions to contact our Club's secretariat at email: to register your interest.
