Using PigeonHole, some of the top keywords being mentioned by the speakers have been compiled in the following word cloud:


Inaugurating the conference is a veteran from the Motorola team, the MD of Motorola Solutions Malaysia. Having been with the organisation for more than 25 years, Dr Hari Narayanan is currently responsible for the company’s operations at its Penang site, which include the supply chain, R&D and the global solutions and services centre.

Today, he gets the ball rolling, with a presentation on deploying HR technology in the age of disruption, affirming that at Motorola Solutions, the cloud buoys the employee's entire journey. In an example, he shares, "From the rewards point of view, our pay grade and salaries, everything is published on Converage. Nothing is secretive - that's the kind of culture we are creating in Motorola."
