Apptio reinforces commitment to Asia with strategic hire

SINGAPORE, Jun 24, 2022 – (ACN Newswire) – Apptio, the leading provider of technology business management (TBM) applications, has appointed Tarun Kumar Kalra as Regional Vice President – Asia. Tasked with strengthening and establishing new strategic engagements in the region to help organizations make informed, data-driven technology business decisions, Tarun will focus on creating incremental value for Apptio's customers and partners and expanding the company's presence across Asia.


Tarun Kumar Kalra


"Tarun joins us at a time of exceptional possibility in Asia and we are leaning on his experience and leadership to grow Apptio's presence across the region. CIOs are being asked to do more with less, and to be accountable for their spending. Apptio equips them with the data and insights to better manage their IT investments and align them to business outcomes, through the implementation of the Technology Business Management (TBM) and FinOps disciplines," Ben Allard, Apptio Vice President and General Manager, Asia Pacific remarked. "Tarun will be instrumental in leading the execution of Apptio's vision and the adoption of TBM, FinOps and agile disciplines in the region,"

Kalra observes that, "Asian economies continue to witness consumption-driven growth, fueled by governmental and private enterprises driven capital expenditure (CapEx) expansion cycles. Organizations that are 'born in the cloud' are altering customer engagement models and technology consumption patterns. For that reason, cloud computing is the cornerstone of technology innovation, ensuring organizational resilience."

He adds, "Clients are seeking frictionless engagement models to give them the ability to scale new products and services to support their market expansion strategies. That requires nimble and agile technology organizations."

Kalra expects growth in the technology sector to continue with further advances being made in digital banking, healthtech, insurtech, and ecommerce. He says "Such organizations, along with large enterprises and government departments are grappling with ballooning technology costs while struggling with a limited view on a single pane and single source of truth on their returns on technology investments. Apptio is uniquely positioned with a proven solution to help these organizations derive deeper financial accountability and effectively allocate resources to areas of greater ROI and innovation."

TEC case study on the Future of Work found that an increased number of their employees wanted greater workplace flexibility

HONG KONG, Sep 2, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – The office of the future must be an inspiring physical space that facilitates communication, cooperation and collaboration in order to encourage employees to come into the office, according to the latest case study by The Executive Centre ("TEC"), the leading premium flexible workspace.

Modern technology and globalised communication systems have allowed us to become a more agile and mobile workforce, and these trends have accelerated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The workforce culture today is increasingly championing flexible working practices as the Future of Work, leading to a shift for multinational corporates towards adopting a flexible work culture through an extensive review and analysis of their portfolio and employee needs.

The case study reviews the learnings and provides a roadmap for other organisations that realise the value of flexibility but find it challenging to create an architecture to empower change.

One of the key learnings is that for companies to successfully transition towards flexible working practices, they need to understand their business requirements and priorities first, as there is no one-size-fits-all solution. They must also interview and collaborate with their employees extensively, conduct research to make informed decisions, seek external consultations from multiple industry partners, and understand where their operations need to be geographically and how the occupants will use that space. While the company approach must be tailored, there were three factors that all companies should consider in their workplace strategy: Physical, Digital and Social.

— Physical transformation: As people will be coming into the workplace to perform activities that they cannot do at home, office design will become one that facilitates communication, cooperation and collaboration.

— Digital transformation: With an increasing demand to work flexibly and remotely, technology and digitalisation of workflows will play a pivotal role in enabling day to day productivity.

— Social transformation: As the office will become a place where employees choose to work from, greater incentives will be needed to attract people into the office.

For its Greater Bay Area location, one of TEC's clients realised it required private office spaces and meeting rooms in a CBD location which would allow for multiple business units to operate, and a flexibility to scale up or down as their business needs changed. The Executive Centre's flexible workspace solution gave them the ability to mitigate their risks and reduce costs while remaining in the heart of Guangzhou's central business district.

"As a solution, flexible workspaces provide ready to use, fully furnished and serviced workspaces for the headcount that's needed at hand. This ability to scale up or down or move locations at relatively short notice is a highly intelligent way for companies to address their workspace requirements," said Paul Salnikow, Founder & CEO of The Executive Centre.

TEC case study on the Future of Work: Standard Chartered Bank found that around 75% of their employees wanted greater workplace flexibility

HONG KONG, Sep 2, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – The office of the future must be an inspiring physical space that facilitates communication, cooperation and collaboration in order to encourage employees to come into the office, according to the latest case study by The Executive Centre ("TEC"), the leading premium flexible workspace and Standard Chartered Bank.

Modern technology and globalised communication systems have allowed us to become a more agile and mobile workforce, and these trends have accelerated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The workforce culture today is increasingly championing flexible working practices as the Future of Work. Standard Chartered Bank is leading the shift for multinational corporates towards adopting a flexible work culture through an extensive review and analysis of their portfolio and employee needs.

Sheridan Perkins, Property Program Director of Future Workplace, Now at Standard Chartered Bank said, "Initially, we assumed maybe 50% of our employees wanted Flex, but actually from our survey we found that over 75% wanted it. Typically, this was 2-3 days at home and 2-3 days at the office or a third space. Despite some regional nuances, this finding was reasonably consistent across all regions."

The case study reviews the learnings from Standard Chartered Bank's exercise and provides a roadmap for other organisations that realise the value of flexibility but find it challenging to create an architecture to empower change.

One of the key learnings is that for companies to successfully transition towards flexible working practices, they need to understand their business requirements and priorities first, as there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

Shelley Boland, Head of Property Asia Pacific, Standard Chartered Bank added, "The talent of the future are expecting flex; whether that's flexible work hours or locations. Successful adopters of flex will be those that have the foresight to model and visualise how workplace changes may affect business outcomes, operations and employees, and be agile enough to constantly evolve their workspace to those needs. We see flexible office spaces playing a greater role in that strategy."

The Executive Centre Expands Its Central Footprint With The Help Of CBRE By Securing Prime Space In AIA Central

HONG KONG, Aug 26, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – As demand for flexible workspaces in Hong Kong continues to grow, Asia's leading premium flexible office solutions provider, The Executive Centre (TEC), is expanding its portfolio in the City. Assisted by CBRE Hong Kong, the company has secured another prime location in Central to satisfy rising demand for top-tier flexible workspace.


AIA Central, 1 Connaught Road, Central, Hong Kong

The Executive Centre


"This modern, flexible and well-equipped workspace situated in a highly desirable location will be an attractive proposition for clients, particularly those in the financial services sector," says Ada Fung, Executive Director, Head of Advisory & Transaction Services – Office Services, CBRE Hong Kong. "We're delighted to have played an important role in securing the entire 15th floor of AIA Central at 1 Connaught Road, encompassing approximately 15,000 sq. ft. of lettable space."

Nadia Zhu, Regional Managing Director of Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan of The Executive Centre, is excited to be adding another prime Grade-A office space to the company's existing portfolio, and to offer turn-key office space solutions to a wider audience with the aim of empowering productivity and facilitating meaningful business collaboration.

"At TEC, we're confident that Hong Kong will remain a key global business hub for years to come. As a business that has over 25 years of operational experience, we are committed to both continuing our growth and supporting our clients as they grow. Each of our Centres offers a prestigious address with advanced infrastructure such as private offices, business concierges, meeting rooms, coworking spaces and event spaces to meet our clients' every business need," said Nadia Zhu.

The future of work is shifting to a more hybrid model, and flexibility is essential for future workspace strategies. Flexible workspaces such as the new TEC Centre at AIA Central opens up the possibility for an agile, mobile and reactive workforce, which in turn bolsters business resiliency. Once the new location at AIA Central opens in November 2021, TEC will have 11 Centres in Hong Kong totaling over 232,000 sq. ft. of floor space. The company's seven locations in Central, including One IFC and Hong Kong Club Building, were also secured by CBRE previously.

The new TEC office space at AIA Central will embrace a new design direction by designer Fiona Hardie ID, featuring a neutral hue of white and grey. Minimalist details and clean lines combining with organic profiles will provide a sense of fluidity and movement to the workspace, while the mixed use of marble, timber, satin nickel, and gently textured hand applied wall finishes will add details to the beautiful contemporary workspace.
