SGTech Proprietary


Frequently asked questions:

Who is SGTech?

SGTech is the new name of what was formerly known as SiTF or the Singapore Infocomm Technology Federation.

As the technology industry continues to evolve, SGTech will play an important role in developing and implementing initiatives that can help strengthen and grow digitalisation amongst businesses, the tech industry and the community at large. 

SGTech aims to include and serve companies that are leveraging technology as core to serve their customers, for instance, financial institutions, and platform service providers. Such companies are building new digital platforms and investing in technology R&D accounting for an increasing number of tech professionals in Singapore.

 

How will SGTech be different from SiTF?

SiTF has long been a significant partner in promoting technology and innovation and has championed the transformation of the info-communications sector. Under SGTech, the association will continue to ensure the industry remains at the forefront of developments.

While SiTF catered to the info-communications sector, SGTech is embracing a larger audience and will expand its membership base to include organisations from various sectors so long as they recognise technology as a core driver of their business.

 

Who are SGTech’s members?

SGTech’s members range from start-ups, small and medium-sized enterprises to multinational corporations.

With advances in digital technologies leading to the emergence of new business models, SGTech is expanding the scope of its membership to include not only technology providers but also technology users who are using technology as core to serve their customers.


What is SGTech’s charter?

SGTECH will sharpen and deepen our focus on three key value propositions for our members and to the community we serve:

(1)   Being a Business Enabler;

(2)   Provider of Industry Insights;

(3)   Being a Responsible Advocate

 

Business Enabler

SGTech is keenly working on initiatives and programmes that will provide business outreach and opportunities for its members. SGTech has technology aligned chapters to help the industry and users understand the innovative technologies better. The launch of the pro-tem committee for Artificial Intelligence & High-Performance Computing (AI & HPC) will help users on adoptions, develop talents and create better awareness of AI.

SGTech continues to partner with IMDA to enable SMEs-Go-Digital to drive technology adoption and develop sustainable ‘digital’ strategy. 

To address a key concern for its members - developing talent and capabilities, talentguru, a career development portal was set up. This portal is dedicated to helping students, fresh graduates and mid-career switchers to understand their skill gaps and their respective jobs’ career path. Talentguru is ‘not another job matching portal’.  It uses AI and machine learning to help understand the skills sets needed for a particular role and helps individuals map a career path forward.


Industry Insights

SGTech will contribute to the industry knowledge through select industry research studies to topics that matter most to businesses. 


Voice of the Industry

SGTech will continue to be an active responsible voice of the industry, a trusted and respected partner of the government by working for our members responsibly.
