This week SGTech interviewed Liu Lung Hao, Co-Founder of Feezmodo Consulting and winner of IT Youth of the Year at the SCS IT Leader Awards 2018. Read on to learn more about this outstanding individual, his achievements, strategy and philosophy.
SGTech: In your experience with Feezmodo, what is the greatest barrier to digital transformation experienced by small businesses?
Liu: Lack of knowledge. Most SMBs don't understand why and how digital transformation will benefit them and their businesses. Currently, we are spending the most time on educating our clients on the importance of integrating IT into their strategic planning for the years to come. It is only when the client fully understands the value of technology are we able to proceed with their digital transformation.
SGTech: There are many initiatives in Singapore right now for talent and capacity-building; what are the most important skills for young talent to acquire in the tech sector?
Liu: Ability to absorb large amounts of information within a short period of time. The tech sector, being a rapidly growing industry, is developing and changing at an extremely quick pace. Numerous new technologies are being built and introduced every day. Hence, it is crucial that we are able to maintain an open growth mind-set and keep up to date with the new trends and technologies. This allows us to stay relevant and remain competitive.
SGTech: Do you have a mantra that guides you, if so, what is it?
Liu: Technology comes from humanity.
I started my IT journey building robots with Lego Mindstorm. I wanted to build a robot which can help me to grab a can of coke because I was too lazy to walk over to the fridge. Fast forward to today, we started Feezmodo Consulting to help our clients automate the most mundane of work processes through the use of technology, freeing up precious human resources and improve their productivity. This way, we can have more time for our friends and family and also, the things that truly matters in our life.
Thank you Mr. Liu for taking the time to chat with us and allowing our SGTech community get to know you better. Congratulations again on your award-winning achievements!
